We stayed here on the way to Kgalagadi and back. Liesel is a very nice an super friendly host. The rooms are nice, clean and big enough to get your things sorted for the park. Breakfast is not huge but fine. Make sure you like dogs when coming! A clear recommendation.

Conveniently situated in Upington just off the main road. This hidden gem is a great place to stop off. Service is great, rooms are clean and well set out. Pool is great for those hot summer days in the Northern Cape. Worth a visit.

The room i was alllocated with was infested with cockroaces.woke up with a cockroach crawling over my face.upon complaining i was handed a can of doom and told its "maar deel van dit". And the staff was instructed to clean the room .my stay was not pleasant at all as i had to sleep with one eye open.There is also no place like a desk and chair f you have to work. Most of the time i struggled to get the breakfast down as the roaches was on my mind. The room also need a serious upgrade...

Dear Renette, we are truly sorry to hear about your unfortunate experience. We have exceptionally high standards and has never had this type of complaint or feedback before. We did act immediately on your initial complaint by sanitizing your room and chemically treating your immediate outside areas. We always act immediately on any type of feedback/complaint. I wish you could have witnessed the activities behind the scenes in follow up reaction to your comment. We consider feedback from all our guests in a serious manner and try to act immediately. It is important to us to ensure guests enjoy their stay with us. We have been in business for over 20 years and always aim to keep our guests happy and content. This has been an exceptionally wet season in our area and we have been struggling to keep uninvited visitors at bay - locusts, ants, mozzies and crawling creatures are sporadically unwelcome visitors (luckily far fom bejng an infestation). Their presence is definitely not related to lack of good housekeeping. It is unfortunate that you did not follow up your concerns with management. You indicated each morning that all was well and that you enjoyed a good rest. We could have moved you to another room had we known your true feeljngs. You were given a choice upon arrival between 2 rooms - one had a desk. You selected one without a desk. Communication is such an important component in our industry and we apologize sincerely for not picking up on your discontent sooner- you gave us the impression of enjoying your stay. We invite you back to Libby's to experience a great stay as most of our guests can atest to. Kindly take the time to browse through some of the comments of other happy travellers on this page.

More than adequate stop over after long drive.
Our second stay. No time on this occasion to take advantage of the very nice pool area.
Self catering facilities are very limited so have something very simple or go out to eat.

This is a lovely, well-run, hospitable, and comfortable lodge near a new mall in Upington. We were warmly greeted by the staff and were delighted by our neat and clean quarters, one of their self-catering rooms in a beautiful garden setting. The swimming pool is the cleanest of any I've seen: it literally sparkles and invites you to come in and cool off. The surrounding gardens are immaculate and welcoming, as there are tables and chairs in various locations near braai facilities. We thought the breakfast was delicious, and we left feeling very refreshed and relaxed. Liesl is so accommodating and helpful. You will enjoy your stay here! This is our favorite place in Upington to spend time.

After a long journey we were greeted by a friendly face, shown to a comfortable chalet with air con and a TV. While waiting for friends I took the opportunity to take a dip in the welcoming swimming pool. Tasty breakfast. Good value for money, excellent stop-off point. We were not booked for a return visit, but I was so thankful when they could accommodate my partner and I, plus friends in two fabulous chalets. We were made to feel very welcomed. Thank you.

We had just come from a very dry and dusty Kglagadi game park so we were really pleased to arrive at a reasonably priced accommodation with a friendly and helpful owner who supplied us with plates etc for our BBQ. The check in was smooth and friendly. We stayed at the weekend when it was quiet so we had the pool and BBQ area to ourselves. The room we were in had air conditioning, but the decor is a bit tired and in need of a spruce up, despite that we would stay at Libby's if we are in Upington again.

Very pleasant bed and breakfast in Upington. We stayed here on our way to the Kgalagadi. We had a self catering cottage which was spacious and well equipped. The breakfast was simple but good. We were lucky to get a room at the back away from the main road, but I did overhear guests from the front rooms commenting they had slept well so perhaps the noise isn't too bad at night. Lovely big swimming pool and beautiful well tended gardens.
