We arrived late and were welcomed by the very accommodating owner. The rooms were larger than normal, beautifully furnished, clean and surprise 'goodies' in the fridge. The beds were exceptionally comfortable and the air con worked beautifully. The dining room was a very comfortable space, with views towards the river. Breakfast was exceptional, anything you fancied was provided. Would love to have stayed an extra night. Thanks for a lovely 'one night stop over' we hope to be back. Stretch & Michele - Scotland

We stayed here on out way to Kagaligadi Transfrontier Park and then later again on our way to the Augrabies Falls. it lies on the south of the town overlooking the Orange River. The complex comprises of a main building and 2 sets blocks of rooms.
The rooms were modern, clean, spacious and airy. They had a well iquipted area with complimentary drinks and snacks. The toilet shower was spotless.
Good breakfast with continental or cooked available.

We stayed here en route home rom the Kgalagadi. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and clean. There is off-street parking, which is useful for parking of off-road trailers etc.
One or two disappointments though:
1) Please supply a hair dryer for your guests - after two weeks of roughing it, I would have liked to blow dry my hair
2) We were met by the owner's somewhat grumpy husband, who didn't seem to keen to assist us.

I stayed here for 2 days. Beautiful clean rooms. The lady that welcomed me was so nice. The room is very spacious and everything that you need is there (except hairdryer). The aircon was much appreciated in the 42C heat wave!Welcome treats was a nice supprise (local droe wors, chocolat and juice). The owner even came to say hi and to make sure everything is ok.

There is even a braai outside (your own for privacy).

Really felt welcome here!

The room was modern, clean and had everything you need including a small fridge with some biltong and rusks included. Was a bit on the smal side but not umcomfortably so. Situated in a new suburb and some construction noise from the surrounding building works but not too intrusive. It is well suited for overnight stay for business or traveller but it's not suited for a holiday stay. Reasonably priced as well.

A purpose-built guest lodge, positioned on the outskirts of town in an area where some very impressive houses are being built. I had the bachelor unit, at the front of the property. It is very well-equipped for self-catering, has nice fittings and a very comfortable bed. A very minor niggle - the unit has a glass door with no curtain. The frosting doesn't quite reach the door frame, leaving just under an inch of clear glass around the door. It seems Upington has quite a demand for accommodation lately and this place should do well, given their competitive pricing. Oh - and the the complementary snacks were great!

Clean, comfortable & attention to detail.
The towels are thick and soft, the decor is lovely, they provide droe wors, rusks, and a fridge with little chocolates, mineral water, milk and fruit juice.
All the little comforts they could think of are here.
It feels like we're visiting a cherished family member who is pulling out all the stops to spoil us.
This is our second visit and we will always stop in Upington to visit here.

A really comfortable guest house. Rooms neat and clean. Situated in a quiet location close to the river. Abbiamo offers great value for money, and we will book there again if ever we return to Upington.
