Value
Le Must Residence is a superior, boutique guest house on the banks of the verdant Orange River, in the business centre of Upington. The Residence is reminiscent of the great Italian villas of the lake district of Italy and is lush with antiquities, heirlooms and an eclectic mix of modern furniture and other treasures collected from all over the world. Le Must River Residence with 9 bedroom en-suites, is a haven of peace and tranquillity and will host you with comfort. We are proud to be a non-hotel property. We are not a glitzy guest house, our approach is more subtle. You will love our friendly, local staff and our unpretentious Northern Cape hospitality. The late Niël Stemmet founded Le Must in 1985. His work in the industry has been recognised on many platforms. He is the author of 3 heritage cookbooks that celebrate South African food. Klein Geluk in Nieu Bethesda [Graaff Reinet] are part of his unique, collection.

Davidbignose! wrote a review Feb 2020
Woodstock, Vermont

Very impressed. Simple good non fussy hospitality and well run.

A lovely place with history and a great manager (Hannakie) who could not do more to assist me. Upon check out I left my credit card on the desk. Yup I was a silly harse. I noticed this error one country and several hundred miles later. Hannakie not only reassured me that she would keep it safe, she organised for the card to be couriered to Cape Town so that I could pick it up. Service above and beyond!

We visited at a quiet time of year and all the staff were personable and happy to cook us breakfast etc. Small clean pool, good outdoor furniture and a delightful well kept garden.

My only comment is that I would personally remove a few pieces of furniture from the room as it felt crowded. The bathroom free standing tub was wonderful. Good quiet a/c and great bed linen and mattress.

As a former award winning innkeeper I was VERY impressed with the place.

Looking for a tranquil and relaxing atmosphere to overnight? Le Must is the only place I’d recommend. We traveled from the Kgalagadi to Cape Town and stayed over at Le Must Riverside, from the moment you enter this sweet haven you feel like a weight has been lifted off your shoulders. The garden is absolutely gorgeous, the manor house is stately. Our room was so luscious with the comfortable bed that slept heavily. The breakfast the next morning was the real treat. I am truly happy to have discovered this gem. Thanks Jakes for the hospitality you showed us from when we came to our departure. Cerina the owner for the extra help with our trailer.
Thank so Much. 5stars

We booked for 1 night but stayed for 2.
I initially booked for 1 night after leaving the Kgalagadi Park but was so impressed with Le Must, we booked an extra night and spent a day at Augrabie Falls, less than 100km away. Safe, secure and very laid back with a wonderful garden. Lovely staff and a great breakfast. They have solar power which kept the room fridge & fan during load shedding. 8 minutes on foot into town.
I’d 100% recommend this guesthouse.

A pleasant overall stay. Very nice breakfast. I had an extremely short stay. An extractor fan should be installed in bathroom. Excellent view of river. Bed is a little short for taller guests. Room a nice size

Le Must is absolutely a wonderful place to stay. We were received so friendly; even setting out cutlery, plates and spices etc so that we can have our own braai. The setting is so beautiful as the house is looking out on the river with a stunning sunset !

aWe overnight in Upington quite frequently on our way up to Nam. We hadn't stayed Le Must before and our visit was a first. The welcome by Jakes was very warm and helpful; we braaied and dined beside the river; and slept very soundly. Breakfast the next morning was delicious. Thank you everybody involved for making the visit so special.

Lovely, comfortable rooms with everything you need. Good wi-fi and alternative power supply during load shedding. Different coffee options in room (machine & plunger) with fresh milk and rusks provided. Very friendly owner and staff. Will definitely recommend Le Must.

The guest house is situated on the bank of the Orange River! It gave a very tranquil feel to our stay. Sitting on the veranda with a beer after a long drive, with this view and a Fish Eagle cry in the back ground was magical.
The service is good, rooms are nice and spacious and the breakfast excellent!
Parking inside property is available but cramped. Make sure you park close to gate if you leave early.

Lovely location on the river, with beautiful sunset views. The gardens are pleasing to the eye, creating a peaceful atmosphere and shade. Appreciated the management referral of Zest restaurant for dinner where we had fantastic wine and food and service.
