We have just traveled 5000 kilometers and this guesthouse is under our top 3 guesthouses for the holiday. The farm has a calm and peaceful ambiance to it. The rooms are huge - ours was 140 sq.m!! The host gives attention to the finest little detail - from the free sherry in our room on arrival to the quality of... More

Great stay in a lovely setting. The rooms, service and food - Excellent! Good to see the support for the local wine industry, as a result we discovered a new favourite. Would recommend African Vineyard Guesthouse to all my friends and family. .

From beginning to end this was a delightful experience. The welcome and tour of rooms and facilities, the room itself, the introduction to local wines and the dinner and breakfast. The friendliness and hospitality. You could have enjoyed another day or two there.

We were pleasantly surprised to find such a gem near Upington. Very friendly service. An absolute feminine touch to the rooms and decoration of the Vineyard. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely visit the Vineyard again.

Worth the detour, especially the location near the Orange River. We were surprised to see few guests the night we were there, but the place is really great, with some huge rooms very quiet and well arranged. The service is top-notch, it feels like at home

When you walk thru the gates of Elmarie and Theuns de Bruin's guest house, you are welcomed into a picturesque haven of art and hospitality. A feeling of peace and tranquillity surrounds you when you experience their hospitality. Personal artistic touch and attention to detail is all around you, in the room, in the diner in the garden and especially... More

We almost said everything in above title! Except the one other real great "feature" of the GH: Dion! Dion - big smiles - always ready to help - very knowledgeable - great story teller and the VERY best: an outstanding chef. We stayed 3 nights and we had 3 different b/f and 3 different dinners - all fresh products/home made... More

We really enjoyed our stay. Very beautifully arranged rooms. It was very cold, but we got an extra electric stove and it inmediately got cosy. The meals were creative and very tasty. Hosts took us to a sundowner to the quiver tree forest in Kenhard. A marvellous experience.
