Everything was perfect for us: staff, decor, huge luxurious room, extremely clean establishment, sparkling pool and first class food. It is an ideal midway stop between Johannesburg and the west coast. Great for the falls.

I have stayed at Vergelegen many times in the past, since shortly after they opened. The guest house and restaurant/shop are very pleasant and comfortable, with a small swimming pool for the hot Kakamas days. All rooms have air conditioning and a bar fridge. The rooms are large, comfortable and very clean; so too the bathrooms. Safe parking is available...

This Guesthouse is an oasis in the Northern Cape. After a day in the harsh NC conditions, the cool rooms and especially the pool is just the answer. The food is fabulous and the local wines is an added bonus. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is worth mentioning. This is a must on your travels through...

Vergelegen Guest House is a must do if in the area. Central to Upington and Augrabies, the accommodation is excellent with the bonus of having a restaurant on site. The food is also amazing with healthy size portions. Try the carpaccio.

Spent another night over @ Vergelegen when working in the region. Again the facilities were brilliant and the food exceptional! Service amazing! The only two things I could improve is the quality of the curtains as these are not very light proof! Secondly I would have loved to have some wall plugs available for those charging bits.
