Review of River City Inn
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 11 Dec 2019
I travelled to Upington for business and just wanted a simple hotel that served breakfast.
Reception staff were quick and friendly (reception is open 24 hours); my room was spacious, comfortable and equipped with an air-con. Breakfast was offered as a buffet, and had a good variety of foods on offer. All in all, River City Inn is highly recommended.

The room was clean and spacious, the staff was friendly and the breakfast was amazing! Love the Northern-Cape hospitality. The consumables within the room were also wonderful and there was an array of options to choose from.

The accomodation was very nice, the rooms was clean, reception played their role and the hospitality just was the cherry on the cake. The professional service provided by the staff and even getting to know the security was exceptional. I always go to the Protea hotel, Oasis or The River City Inn as I know I can count on quality service and professionalism.

Whilst the room and facilities were clean, the following concerns are noted:-
No secure parking facilities available.
No supper and the offers available were poor
The one lady at reception (cannot remember her name) was also quite rude
Location of Inn is also quite noisy, especially in the early morning hours

We loved our stay here in the quirky town of Upington. There is not much choice for restaurants in this town. The rooms have everything you need for a comfortable stay and the views are great. We would stay here again.
