Nifty

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 25 Jan 2019
Clean sheets, towels and a room with an aircon in a very hot Upington is really all you need! We stayed at the bottom level, everything is wooden as you can see in the photos so it might be noisy for light sleepers as you can hear your neighbors if they walk or talk above average decibel. For the ladies, there was no hair dryer in the room, you might have to ask reception upfront for it. Breakfast is included, we were traveling early the next day and it was already prepared and stored for us in the fridge. Delicious and convenient!

Beautiful wooden thatch cozy and stylishly decorated large room. Attention to detail, with snacks and generous tea and coffee station. The hostess is warm and accomodating. Air conditioned, carpeted and really relaxing after a long days drive. Definitely a loved establishment, run with pride. Excellent value for money.

Best value for money in Upington ..lovely large room and bathroom ..fridge ,tea ,coffee ,air on or heater and really relaxing wooden design .comfotable large beds and parking on the door step ..helpful host ...what more could you need .

Room tip: The upper floor rooms are quieter as the rooms have wooden floors so you can hear the people above if they are dragging chairs around .

The Kalahari Lions Rest is the best value for money location i have visited in the Northern Cape, the bedrooms and bathrooms are extremely neat, the service is excellent. Staff is very helpful and the setting is great next to the orange river.

Well positioned on the main road entrance into Upington this newly built wooden lodge is ideal for over nighting in Upington. Rooms are clean and neat. Liked the parking right out front of the room as it is practical. The included breakfast was a la carte and very tasty. The owner personally made us breakfast. a nice view of the valley and great value for money.
