It was the most wonderful experience staying at A Chateau de Lux in the heart of Upington. The owners is very friendly and helpful. We were a family group and booked 7 rooms, they were spotless clean, well equipped, the rooms are tastefully decorated with attention to the smallest detail....its was in the middle of winter and the rooms were nice and warm and even electric blankets on the beds...we were spoilt rotten with choclates, muffins and even cherry in the rooms. A wonderful breakfast is served at a very affordable price. The guesthouse is in a very quiet area and close to the Kalahari Mall. A definte must visit!!! Thank you Estelle.

Comfortable and affordable stay in a relaxing environment. The owners of this establishment is very friendly and helpful. Rooms are tastefully decorated with attention to the smallest detail, ranging from muffins, sherry and chocolates to an en suite jacuzzi with heavenly bath salts. Close to the Kalahari mall. A definite must visit

This was a most wonderful experience staying at A Chateau de Lux. Spotless clean, well equipped and a in very quiet area of the beautiful Upington. There were so much little extras that even a "thank you" is not enough. Then there was this wonderful and delicious breakfast. All this to an absolutely affordable price!
Thank you so much to Estelle Crous, we wish you all the best for future bookings....

We stayed one night in A Chateau de Lux. What an experience! Apart from the fact that the rooms are affordable, everything was of the best quality. The owner overwhelms her guests with treats in the rooms. Sherry, fruit, cupcakes, biscuits, hot chocolate and more. Even rose petals in the bathroom! The room was perfect and comfortable situated in a peaceful environment.

Dear client We regret that you feel this way . We would like to inform you that you also did not pay upfront for your booking , but only on arrival without asking for breakfast (R80 per person extra). I did phone you the Monday morning early to explain that the booking of the other guest was booked for one night over the phone by the agency but they paid for 2 nights and we had to put the paid guest first. I did inform you of my problem and you where fine with the other guesthouse. I am sorry that you had to pay R50 more for the other guest if I knew that I would pay the difference to the other guesthouse . You stayed in a room for R800 and I gave you a special for R500 2 persons normally the small single room or weekend special. I spoke to the other guesthouse also the evening and now again to asked if you want breakfast and they told me that you would leave early .When you asked for breakfast I was busy with the other guests eating and I had only 1 egg left and then send someone to buy more eggs for you. We also went back to your room to inform you that we got breakfast for you , but you already had left when we go to the room.I am proud to present my breakfast and will not give something not up to standard because there was no booking made for breakfast. The Mall was already open for breakfast that was why I recommended the mall as it is only 700m from the guesthouse. Breakfast must be booked the previous day because we buy new groceries everyday according to the number of bookings made. Breakfast is not included in the price and is extra of charge . You also never informed us when you made the booking that you wanted breakfast .I work very hard to keep up the good name of our guesthouse and like to go the extra mile but a 1 that is far fetch. I am sorry that I was at the grocery store busy buying stock for the guesthouse on my way back when you booked in and had to ask someone else to book you in . Please sent your bank details so that I can pay in the R50 difference. We apologize for the inconvenience .

I stayed at this establishment for just one night, but wished it was longer.

I had a great room, the heaters were on as it was extremely cold (very strange for Upington) and the room was beautifully decorated. All luxuries you could ask for were there and even more. They go into the detail and I enjoyed it.
The breakfast was huge and tasty. If you are in the area, sleep in this guest house. It is quite special

I have never been in a guesthouse which is so lovingly decorated. The theme is white with hearts of all sizes. All are in wood, wire or in white and look very natural. The rooms are provided with the niceties, such as biscuits, sherry, plenty of coffee and tea choices. The bed is a white cushion heaven. Dried flowers are lovingly sprinkled into the bath and other loving touches adorn this stunning little guest house. There is an enchanted little garden outside with access from the rooms, as well as a swimming pool.

Breakfast is however not served over the weekend but snack packs are prepared at an extra fee on request the night before. We really loved our stay there!

Estelle and her team are most probably the best i've seen. Her friendly reception, even late at night when we arrived, is superb every time. This being our 3rd stay there, we have requested the same room, and every time it was just great! For the value we get in return! This has now become our stop-over point going down to West Coast and returning to Gauteng. It is the small things that makes us wanting to go back....the sherry in the room, the chocolates on the bed, the muffins, freshly baked etc etc, what more can you want after a day on the road.

Estelle is a wonderful hostess. Received a warm welcome. Rooms were very clean and welcoming. Pamper time in the bathroom with all the little gifts provided by Estelle. She gave us excellent tips as where to eat and what to do. Because of the personal attention to detail and to her guests, we decided to stay in our little castle on our way back from Namibia as well. This accommodation was reserved from Namibia. Although she had no rooms available, she made the effort to find suitable accommodation for us for the two nights we stayed. Could join locals in NamaFees. Highly recommended. We stayed August and September 2017.
