Stunning

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 20 Jan 2022
The setting on the river is unbeatable, lovely garden too. Very welcoming hosts that go to great lengths to make you feel at home. We had two cats with us and they placed cat toys in the room as a welcome gift. ❤️ The breakfast too unbeatable. Best eggs fried to taste I have had in a long time, bacon and sausage. Yum. Good coffee. The bed was firm without being hard and I appreciated that. Lovely sheets and towels. Comfortable pillows. Aircon worked well keeping the room cool on the hottest summer days. The rooms are quiet. And feel like a private haven. A good deal of careful thought in selecting tasteful indoor decor that also provides comfort. I like the Persian rugs set off against wood floors. The old style wood wardrobes. The staff are all winners. Very friendly and polite, but only when you need them, otherwise they fade in the facade so you don’t notice their presence overly. Just right. I love their friendly laughter at the opportune moments. Down to earth and natural but still within perfect professional service. I can not find fault and highly recommend. I hope to visit again soon.

What an absolute delight to stay over at Waterfront Guest Farm on our way home from our trip to the Richtersveld! Jasper, Brunhilde and their very friendly & efficient staff went out of their way to make a our stay memorable. We were a group of 8 and were treated to the most delicious 3-course dinner - from the biltong soup to the oxtail, chicken pie, pumpkin muffins, the wonderful Waterfront salad - each dish was mouthwatering. Comfortable rooms and lovely detail in each room. After a delicious breakfast, we left with plans to definitely sleep over again when on a future trip. Having stayed in Upington on previous occasions at different guesthouses, this is definitely our top choice!

Great view and access to the Orange River. Bruhmilde and Jasper went out of their way to make us feel at home with non intrusive homely hospitality. Rooms clean, spacious and comfortable. The use of facilities a welcome bonus. Great stop over to and from the Northern parts of SA to the west cost and further south.

Check in -good. Room-good. Location-good. Breakfast-good.
Had a really good walk amoungst the vineyards.

Why this rating is only 3 stars was the noise at night from the other guests. Lots of loud shouting and some woman screeching throughout the night.
If you go there be sure to ask if President Ramaphosa,s security detail are there at the same time. Then do not book.

We sepnt the night here on our way to the Kgalagadi from Johannesburg, and again on the way back, as it takes a while to get from MataMata camp and out of the park. So we had two bites of the cherry and were very happy on both occasions. The setting, right on the banks of the Orange River, is very tranquil, the staff are friendly and helpful, and the honesty bar where you can help yourself to drinks made it ideal for a quick beer after our travels and then a more serious drink before going out to dinner. The morning breakfast is excellent--a full array of cereals, juice, fruit, etc and then a cooked breakfast made to order. The facility is on the older side and the rooms are not spanking new, but they were very well equipped with tea/coffee making facilitires, fridge, mini bar and some really charmng decorative touches which show that they are really attentive to making one's stay as pleasant as possible. As we were picking up our 4 by 4 vehicle n Upington they were very happy to look after our car while we were at the national park. So all in all it was a delightful experience and our hostess, Brunhilde Louw, was helpful, informative, and friendly while letting us relax and do our own thing without intrusion--that is quite a skill in B&B faciities, in my opinion.

We stayed at Waterfront for 2 separate days - on the way to and again from the Kgaligadi Transfrontier Park. Brunhilde and Jasper were wonderful, informative hosts who ensured that we were comfortable and enjoyed our stay. The breakfast and dinner were top class. The highlight for us was the sunset cruise with drinks and snacks - we soaked in the tranquility and beauty of the idyllic location on the banks of the mighty Orange River.
