The staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was freshly made and tasty. The view from the garden over the Orange River is superb and very relaxing. The bed was unfortunately very hard so we didn't have a good nights rest. There is only wifi available in the lounge which is not convenient.

Received a friendly welcome. Beautiful garden. Attention to detail in the rooms lacking. Bed and bedding very comfortable. Parking spaces not adequate for the number of guests that can be accommodated. Breakfast well presented. Pity there is no dinner services.

I was travelling on my own and was promised Room 9 with an outside sitting area only to find I had been allocated room 5 which I found to be quite dark. Secondly at breakfast I wanted...

A really nice place to spend a night or two after a long drive through the desert (from almost any direction). The staff are very friendly and the rooms are good. I have stayed there with family and on business and both worked perfectly.

The garden looks out on the Oranje river with comfortable deck chairs. It is a house over 100 years old. The owner does not live anymore in the house and is managed by local management, so it lacks a bit this personal touch to the hospitality. When ringing at the door, you have to wait quite some time, a second...

Has a wonderful stay at this stunning colonial style property. Beautiful shady gardens with a small pool and steps down to the river. Beautifully furnished with lovely comfy armchairs and loungers in the lounges, terraces and balcony and a very well equipped and comfortable bedroom. Tastefully decorate and nothing was too much trouble for the staff who were very welcoming...

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....
