What can I say a little bit of heaven, on an Island, I did not no, that was in the Orange River........... The food was amazing, the staff could not do enough for you. The rooms were unique, every one different. Lovely gardens to sit out in, and have your Lunch. Our family's only regret was, that we only had... More

We arrived at African Vineyard not sure what to expect, but our wildest expectations were exceeded. These rooms are spectacular! It was too cold to do so, but on nice days the entire front wall of your room can be opened to the garden and its beautiful water features. The dining room was gorgeous and there was lots of space...

We thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of this unique guesthouse. It has a great range of rooms, each of which has been individually crafted to offer sumptious accomodation. The food was excellent and the spa intoxicating. On top of this, it is nestled in the midst of an extensive vinyard surrounde on all sides by the orange river providing scenic views... More

Clean, stylish accommodation in a beautiful well maintained setting. Friendly staff and excellent service. A restful stopover on the picturesque river island of Kanon Eiland. Well worth breaking your travel here.

My wife and I needed a stopover en route from Port Elizabeth to Namibia, and wish our stay had been longer than one night! The beautiful location is nothing compared to the property itself which is well-laid out and tastefully decorated. The personal service by Elmarie made it extra special. We slept well in the enormous suite well-warmed on a... More

Of all the places we've travelled in the world, this is definitely one of the top destinations and not only for its beauty, but the warm and friendly welcome of the staff, the true Northern Cape hospitality, the food experience, the spa...everything was just incredible.

The overall service experience was poor from a 4 star establishment. Everything went wrong from our arrival onward. No-body answered the intercom or the phone and we were left at the gate for about 15 minutes. No-body bothered with the usual check in and information about the property, room, meals etc. No choice of meal was communicated or offered. The... More

A top class establishment. Five star accommodation, five star hospitality! From the minute you check in to the minute you check out, you just feel like you've come home. Will most certainly be paying another visit in the future

What an amazing unexpected experience! Super location, wonderful staff, very comfortable rooms. The general atmosphere is stunning. Special mention to the decor which is apparently hand crafted.The garden has had excellent attention with the biggest fever trees I ever seen. In addition to an amazing venue in the working vineyards of Upington, it is amazing value for money.

We stayed for 1 night only at this beautiful place. We had a prearranged dinner which was lovely prepared and with such hospitality and warmth. Definitely a must go place that is peaceful with green gardens, lots of water and birds.
