after seeing the website we thought we were in for a lovely surprise and nice little holiday. But this was not the case. The rosini wooden house was extremely hot and stuffy. The airconditioniner cannot provide enough for the size of the room. We booked for 3 adults and only received 2 towels. The bedding was old and clearly not... More

I am absolutely sorry, but surprised about your comment because if you see others about the Rossini unit they do not say the same. Furthermore, the aircon has been switched just when you arrived and it takes at least one half an hour until it is in its full capacity. There were plenty of additional towels in the cupboard and...

We rode by motorcycle from Johannesburg and our stay over for a night en route to Springbok was in Upington. I had such a lovely time with Jacqueline it felt like I was visiting my grandmother en route to a holiday. We were welcomed with a lovely warm meal and a comfortable room to stay in (Rossinni). The beds were... More

We stayed here for one night on our way back from Botswana. The room was extremely old school but had all the amenities we needed for a night. Jackie, the owner, was very friendly and giving us tipps where to go for dinner. Breakfast was just amazing. Such a variety of food for only two people, including home made joghurts.... More

Jackie's welcome is like coming home. Wonderful host, wonderful food - absolutely great! Arguably the best place to stay in Upington (unless you like banal business hotels). It's beautiful and functional (great wifi) - all anyone could need.

A pretty cottage, very convenient for the whole family; pretty deco in the room and a flavour of Europe in the main house. We appreciated the "chaufferette" for the cold nights in winter. We are very thankful to our hostess for her help and advices on both our stay in Upington and our trip to Kgalagadi.

We stopped here for night. The friendly and welcoming hostess is the places biggest asset coupled with the wonderful gardens. This must be an oasis in a hot summer. Breakfast was excellent and beautifully presented. Our hostess was interesting and interested. We loved the many cats and dogs. The place was full of charm. Well worth a visit.

Lovely one night stop over. The room was decorated in a very pretty manner. The only problem is that it is a bit cluttered and the air-conditioned is a vintage model making a lot of noise. The hostess was very friendly and helpful, the gardens beautiful, the breakfast lovely and we did not see any cats or dogs. Keep up... More

If you think that details matter and a touch of class in a pretty wild area counts, this is the place for you. We fell in love with its lush garden and flamboyant environment – and it was winter! Jackie, the owner, is a lovely and welcoming person who made our staying really special. All bungalows have their own character... More
