We stayed twice in Moon River Guest House on our way to see the flowers and on our return. Situated on the banks of the Orange River just off the N14 we can only recommend it to all. We had a good breakfast and and a 5 star dinner. The room was comfortable and we had safe parking for our car.

We used Moon River as an overnight stop en route to Namakwaland. Great service and were accommodated in a room with easy access to the yard for our little dogs. We ordered dinner which was ready on arrival - a generous portion and tastefully prepared. A good breakfast was served before we left. I will recommend this to anyone traveling through Upington.

My husband and I spent a fabulous night here celebrating our 40th Wedding Anniversary! We arrived late but our host was so accommodating! The room was beautifully decorated with rose petals and of course Champagne and candles! Our host quickly made dinner reservations for us, and we had a great evening. The room was perfect with a view of the river and an enormous spa bath for two! Everything was beautifully decorated. The breakfast was expertly cooked and we had time for a stroll in the garden the next morning.

What an awesome stop it was at Moonriver Guest House! 4 of my buddies from France and myself were on our way for a Road Trip to Namibia, from Cape Town. We were received like kings by the fantastic Jenine, late at night. The rooms, breakfast, view, swimming pool and atmosphere right on the Orange River were just perfect. Thank you so much!
