Warm feeling and cozy atmosphere

Review of Country Lodge
4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 17 Apr 2017via mobile
During our annual family long weekend get together, we selected this lodge. The accommodation is warm and friendly with very clean wooden houses. There are a selection of accommodation and even a tree tent house for the youngsters. The garden is well decorated and give you a private feel . The owners are friendly and helpful. In general the lodge is close to the town centre and situated next to a canal surrounded by trees . We will definitely consider this lodge the next time when we visit Upington and exspecially with a family gathering. Cool.

Lovely quiet corner in a Cul de Sac in suburban Upington 5 mins away from a shopping mall for convenience meals and goodies.
Chalets or rooms clean comfortable with en suite bathrooms and a communal swimming pool.
A real tropical Island atmosphere with palm trees, aviary for early morning birdsong, a boma for group braai (barbecue) or do it at your own chalet on the stoep.
Breakfast included but you can also do your own in the Chalets.
Spent a week there on business and didn't feel the usual "away from home" stress.
Will definitely stay there again and highly recommended.

Room tip: Try for chalets 1,2 and 5

Country Lodge is always the place we stay at. The Lodge is clean and safe for parking. Beautiful garden! Die Afdak Coffee Shop makes the most delicious cappucinnos. The owners and staff are friendly and I highly recommend the lodge.

Room tip: All the rooms are good.

I have on several occasions made use of the Lodge as I travel for work to the area several times a year, the owners are very friendly and accommodating even when arriving at late hours. The facilities are clean and well maintained, and has a coffee shop for breakfast.

We popped in for a cappuccinno to see what it looked like. We sat outside whilst enjoying our drinks. The coffee shop inside has a cozy wood feel whilst outside the gardens give you a lush feeling and are well kept and manicured. It is one of those gems which we discovered in our trip through Upington.

We arrived at Upington in the dark having travelled from Namibia and found this absolute gem of a place by accident; we saw the 'Country Lodge' signs which were in view from a petrol station up the road.

Our hostess Nicolene, made us most welcome. We stayed in a smaller air-conditioned en-suite chalet for one night then moved to a chalet with a kitchen area for 3 nights whilst our vehicle was having its head gasket replaced.

The secure grounds and gardens are beautifully kept and give an "in the bush" feel with animal statues, cheetah and giraffe, lush vegetation and even a little splash pool with sun loungers.

The children friendly place seemed busy most of the time and had a wonderfully welcoming friendly feel to it. If you are passing through or visiting this area put the "Country Lodge" at the top of your list. There is also a coffee shop "Die Afdak" on site, that serves food and drink.

Visit their website for booking details...http://www.countrylodge.co.za/ you will be pleased with the rates.

Room tip: There is a large transformer to the south which hums so if that sort of thing bothers you go for a chalet to the south away from the road.
