Overlooking the Orange River

Review of Aqua Viva
4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 20 Dec 2017
We had 2 nights in Aqua Viva. Everything in the accomodation was wonderful, but we really did`nt like Upington. We would recommend this place for all people who need a peaceful stop on their way, but not for a longer stay in this town.

The place was difficult for me to find, after I finally arrived i was so relieved that I had arrived but the carpet in the room had stains on it. The shower was dirty, I ended up with a skin and ear infection 3 days later.

Pleasant guesthouse beside the river. Rooms have an antique interior that is welcoming. All facilities are very clean and sort after. One issue includes no overhead protection for your parked vehicle and slight difficulty in finding location as it is behind a larger building.

I was traveling from Windhoek to South Africa with a stop over in Upington, it was a last minute travel and I only arrived in Upington past nine pm, I called Tharien and she was so helpful, even though it was past check in time she explained to me where my room was and everything, the next morning she called to inform me that I left some of my belongings there but assured me she would keep it for me, on my way back to Windhoek after a month in SA I made another booking there, also arriving past check in and she was so accommodating, when we entered the self catering unit my belongings was on the kitchen table and on the bed she left a note for us. Tharien you are really great and amazing at what you do and thank you for being so helpful and going out of your way to accommodate me!

I have stayed here with a couple of friends last year (June 2016) on our way to the Kgalagadi, and now again with my boyfriend on the way back from Caoe Town. On both occassions I have called a day or two before and they have always found a way to accommodate me. I have also arrived very late at night and left rather early in the morning. The staff were always very warm and welcoming. They went over and above making our stay a pleasant one.
