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 stayed at the manor house for 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed it! We had a warm welcome and the ladies working there were very friendly ans helpful with tips and laundry. Also enjoyed a great breakfast and the beautiful location at the river, just wonderful!

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

After travelling many hours (14 hrs, not including 2 transit stops), Le Must was certainly very welcoming and comforting. The room (single/double) had heaters for the winter, a shower and toilet ensuite and DSTV and a large double bed. Also the fact that its the closest room to the main residence means that the wifi connection was very strong (yes... More

After traveling for hundreds of kilometers, it was like arriving at an oasis when we arrived at Le Must! The beautiful, well established, well kept, lush garden was awesome. The hostess was playing her roll perfectly! We enjoyed and appreciated the tasteful and stylish interior, and every detail, that was there for our convenience! After staying at Le Must, we... More

We are a retired French couple from Canada (Montreal) and traveled South Africa during 2 months renting 31 different lodgings. This one was # 12. Superb house with gardens and view on the river. Big pool but water was not clean when we were there. Share spaces comfortable and nice. When we arrived (on a Sunday), we were greeted by... More

Thank you for your review. I am sorry that you did not enjoy your stay with us as much as you had anticipated. The room you stayed in is our budget room, thus the smallest of our 11 rooms, which you yourself booked through the internet. We make a point of upgrading our guests and you were given the opportunity... More
