The garden looks out on the Oranje river with comfortable deck chairs. It is a house over 100 years old. The owner does not live anymore in the house and is managed by local management, so it lacks a bit this personal touch to the hospitality. When ringing at the door, you have to wait quite some time, a second... More

Has a wonderful stay at this stunning colonial style property. Beautiful shady gardens with a small pool and steps down to the river. Beautifully furnished with lovely comfy armchairs and loungers in the lounges, terraces and balcony and a very well equipped and comfortable bedroom. Tastefully decorate and nothing was too much trouble for the staff who were very welcoming... More

The experience at Le Must is very, very good from a traveller's perspective. The rooms are excellent, the setting is also great (a very nice garden full of trees, which is a great improvement over the surrounding landscape, a rather dry area in SA), and everyone was very gracious and hospitable at all times, making one feel right at home....

We found this place difficult to find as two B&Bs with very similar names & with the same telephone number so we thought we found it only to be given further directions, parking was secure but would be difficult if the place was full. The room was comfortable but the place seemed deserted with the staff dis-interested the garden seemed... More

A lovely, tropical vibe radiates from thos place; boosted by the natural charm & enthusiasm of the staff. The rooms were bright and spacious whilst still be comfy and intimate. The garden with the pool and trees overlooking the river really does illude you into thinking you're in a tropical paradise and not a desert! There are no tea/coffee making... More

If you want to make yourself coffee or tea, this is not allowed. You have to go to the kitchen to make yourself something. This means that every time I want to make myself something I need to lock my room, go to the kitchen and then return to my room. Imagine if you want to make yourself something 3... More

We are well acquainted with this lovely and unique B and B. We need to travel from Namibia to the RSA regularly on a 2000 km trip with Upington as our stop over. We stay at the Residence and each visit we have made in the last two years has been a delight. The room we use is spacious, very... More

We found ourselves on an arbitrary day in mid-September 2014 in the town of Upington at the end of a lovely long (3000km) road trip to Namaqualand. We were there not by chance. Last there to visit close family 41 years ago, and interested to see what had become of the place, I found that nothing at all remains of... More
