We stayed in Upington en route to the Richtersveld for a cycle tour. I would rate this guest house between average and above average ... the room was big and clean and the bed comfortable, but it was a little stark and lacking in character. The breakfast was very average. We were given very limited free wifi and I think... More

We stayed here one night on our way to Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park and can highly recommend Bain's House. Our room was large and very comfortable. There is ample secure parking available. The owner and her son were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. They really know how to run a business. It is very rare to find accommodation... More

Upington is beautifully located on the banks of the Orange River, but has developed over the last years to an utmost ugly outstretch of scattered concrete blocks overlaid by heavy plastic pollution that covers the whole city. The guesthouse itself is located close to the highway. You can see the Orange River in the distance from the terrace. The front... More

This is a beautiful place with excellent service. The rooms are clean, neat and finely decorated. It provides all the amenities a traveler may need to feel at home. The house even has an interesting history!

We stayed at Bain's House after a week in the Kalahari Desert and it was the perfect place to wash off the salt and sand. It's really nicely decorated inside and there's a fantastic water feature in the entrance hall. Our room was really big and the bed was so comfortable - especially after the camp-beds! The bathroom was huge... More

This was a stop-over en route, booked at the last minute as our first choice was not available. Our room was a spacious one, with a large bathroom. Clearly a lot of care and attention to detail had been given to furnishing the bedroom. The hostess had showed us around before taking us to our room. As we were a... More

As we arrived at the airport, I noticed I had forgot to keep their address and fone number. After a kind help of the people in charge of the information booth (at the airport), I finally could call the hostess and she came to pick us up within 10 minutes. As she took us to the guesthouse, she showed us... More

Small, but very comfortable guesthouse in Upington; with 3 rooms, garden with pool overlooking Orange River; refurbished in 2005. Abel Jacobs, the host and chef, made my 3-night stay absolutely enjoyable! Will come again! Upington, 80 Schroeder Str.
