We paid R1200 for the room for the night but found out the next morning that breakfast is not included! What a disappointment. For the amount in Uppington one expects at least breakfast. Towels were not fresh

Dear Mr W7428ZXjamesm Thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately Expedia/Hotels travel, that you made your booking through made a self catering reservations for you, that means excluding breakfast unfortunately and the rate inclusive of breakfast would have been the more expensive option you could have chosen from. I will personally look into the towel situation as it is unacceptable and...

It is very clear why this guest house is rated number one in Upington. It deserves that accolade. Our experience was diluted by very noisy and inconsiderable occupants in the adjacent room but, apart from that, the experience was top notch. Spacious, well equipped and appointed rooms, good breakfast, friendly and attentive service and superb location. We'll be back when...

Upington is far removed from the usual crossroads of the world, so we found it surprising to find such a wonderful place to stay located there. The rooms are wonderful, the food excellent and the staff as friendly, professional and accommodating as you can find anywhere.

The place is beautiful and tranquil. The staff is friendly and helpful, from the security guard to the reception desk. The most important thing is that they are prepared to listen and do whatever it takes to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. The food is great.
