We stayed here three nights on our way to and from the Kgaligadi. Jacqueline is an expatriate Swiss lady who has lived many years in Upington. The guesthouse is about 3-4 km from the centre of Upington in a quiet residential area fed by a canal from the river - a big advantage as it has enabled her to create... More

We enjoyed our stay in this cosy, cute garden cottage. All the beds had heating blanket and we even had a heater in the room. Linnen was soft and clean and the owner is a real sweetheart. Thank you for the welcome and homey feel. We would definately visit again!

First of all, Jacky, our host, is just super. From the sumptuous breakfasts and stimulating conversations, she always make us feel like special guests. The garden is stupendous, a true oasis in the desert surroundings - even though the well-situated property borders the Gariep River banks. Sleeping accommodations are tastefully decorated, homely and cozy! This is more than a guesthouse.... More

We had an overnight stop at la fugue and found property with a garden oasis and an extremely comfortable bed. Jacqueline was very welcoming and hosted us to a gourmet meal which was very tasty. Jacqueline was an excellent and charming hostess. Thanks for a lovely stop and we will return.

after seeing the website we thought we were in for a lovely surprise and nice little holiday. But this was not the case. The rosini wooden house was extremely hot and stuffy. The airconditioniner cannot provide enough for the size of the room. We booked for 3 adults and only received 2 towels. The bedding was old and clearly not... More

I am absolutely sorry, but surprised about your comment because if you see others about the Rossini unit they do not say the same. Furthermore, the aircon has been switched just when you arrived and it takes at least one half an hour until it is in its full capacity. There were plenty of additional towels in the cupboard and...

We rode by motorcycle from Johannesburg and our stay over for a night en route to Springbok was in Upington.

We stayed here for one night on our way back from Botswana. The room was extremely old school but had all the amenities we needed for a night. Jackie, the owner, was very friendly and giving us tipps where to go for dinner. Breakfast was just amazing. Such a variety of food for only two people, including home made joghurts.... More

Jackie's welcome is like coming home. Wonderful host, wonderful food - absolutely great! Arguably the best place to stay in Upington (unless you like banal business hotels). It's beautiful and functional (great wifi) - all anyone could need.
