A most adequate end to a wonderful holiday

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 12 Jul 2021
Driving back from the magnificent Kgalagadi we reluctantly decided to stay over in Upington before we venture on the arduous journey to Cape Town. What a fortuitous decision!
At Le Must we were warmly welcomed by the host complete with the gaggle of goslings the host adopted. He quickly assisted with setting the scene for our last day of holiday - a braai right on the bank of the Orange River in a peaceful garden. A magical moment in time for us savoring our steak, roosterkoek, salad and our own concoction called oliwine (average red wine with a dash of olive oil) - a princely feast indeed.
The facilities are clean, homely and the garden well-kept and just right.
Rooms are complete, immaculate and the linen crisp and clean - you even have a choice of more than one types of pillow technology.
We unfortunately chose not to have breakfast so I cannot comment.
I ticked all the boxes accordingly and we will definitely stay here again should the opportunity present itself.

Lovely location on the river, with beautiful sunset views. The gardens are pleasing to the eye, creating a peaceful atmosphere and shade. Appreciated the management referral of Zest restaurant for dinner where we had fantastic wine and food and service.

Very impressed. Simple good non fussy hospitality and well run.

A lovely place with history and a great manager (Hannakie) who could not do more to assist me. Upon check out I left my credit card on the desk. Yup I was a silly harse. I noticed this error one country and several hundred miles later. Hannakie not only reassured me that she would keep it safe, she organised for the card to be couriered to Cape Town so that I could pick it up. Service above and beyond!

We visited at a quiet time of year and all the staff were personable and happy to cook us breakfast etc. Small clean pool, good outdoor furniture and a delightful well kept garden.

My only comment is that I would personally remove a few pieces of furniture from the room as it felt crowded. The bathroom free standing tub was wonderful. Good quiet a/c and great bed linen and mattress.

As a former award winning innkeeper I was VERY impressed with the place.

Upon my arrival in the early afternoon of 5 December 2019 it was just beginning to rain softly. I booked in and took a shower in a newly renovated bathroom of room 9 and switched on the air conditioner to cool off while I dress. Then my colleague and I enquired after lunch and Le Must was kind enough to book us a table at Café Zest in Upington, where we were to have our dinner. Upon arrival the restaurant insisted upon a voucher, which Le Must failed to give us and, upon telephonic enquiry in our presence, the restaurant owner confirmed that Le Must will not carry the cost of our dinner; this despite the fact that my company already paid for breakfast, lunch and dinner! I still have the hotel voucher issued by Travelit- as per the company booking. I do not trust the management of Le Must. I will never again stay there. Le Must sent me from Café Zest humiliated and hungry after travelling all the way from Port Nolloth. You Must think twice before you book at Le Must...

Good day Mr Barnardo

My sincere apologies for the inconvenience caused during your short stay at Le Must. It is our mission to keep our guests happy and comfortable at all times.

We charged the company for the accommodation no Dinner and Lunch were charged.

Please if you visit Upington again come and stay with us free of charge and I will personally prepare you a nice home cook meal.

A Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year for you and your family.

We stayed at Le Must Riverfront Residence for two nights on our recent trip through the Northern Cape Province.
The Hotel is in an historic building on the banks of the Oranje river. Rooms are spacious and furniture fits well into the old background of the premises.
The service is excellent, personal and friendly. Breakfast is rich and served in room that probably was once the dining room of the family who lived in the house. It has a nice view onto the river.
We recommend Le Must Riverfront Residence without any reservations, and we would like to thank Hanna and her team for a very pleasant stay.
