An Oasis in Upington!

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 25 May 2024
On my return from the Kalahari Transfrontier Park, I stayed overnight in Upington.

The Manor is right on the beautiful Orange River, beautiful peaceful views, lots of bird life, and a great stay, excellent rooms and a fantastic breakfast.

I could not ask for more, with incredibly helpful and friendly staff.

This will be my only choice whenever I am up there in Upington.

The manor is off the road and very secure.
Date of stay: May 2024
Room Tip: Make sure to also visit the Red Ox Steakhouse if you're a meat lover, only 3 minutes away.
Trip type: Travelled as a couple

Entire experience memorable. Service excellent and friendly. Atmosphere peaceful, sitting outside our ground floor room overlooking the river with a glass of wine was good for the body and soul. Even with the limited menu due to their kitchen renovations, the food was excellent.

When I made the booking I was told that the river facing rooms were fully booked but that we could have a non-river facing room, which we booked. It turned out that these rooms are right next to their building expansion (adding rooms), in other words, when you open your window or door, you have workers right on the outside. We felt that we should have been informed about the construction work, we then would not have rented the room. The rooms are actually not rentable. Also, we couldn't use the room during the day due to the noise and the invasion of privacy.
However, we were given a very nice family suite for one night (the hotel was fully booked for the next night), which we cannot fault and we also didn't pay for the upgrade. The room was river facing and slightly away from the building works with a lovely view over the Orange River.
Most of the staff were very friendly and helpful and the food was good.
If it wasn't for the 'construction' room, we would have had a good stay.
