Excellent Guesthouse, convenient , friendly, comfortable home from home. The only improvement could be in a more variety of breakfeast. Also attention to a clean pool can be improved. Staff are very friendly and always helpful.

My brother and I slept over on our way back from Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. Loved the rooms, views of the river, food and friendly staff. The huge garden and green grass right up to the river is so great to walk on and have a late afternoon braai on. The staff starts a fire for you to enjoy. Thanks guys

We were unexpectedly delayed in Upington due to our vehicle breaking down and the team at the Lodge were very accommodating with regard to our "in the air" plans and eventual late check-out requirements. The rooms were very comfortable and children loved having all the garden space and pool area to play in.

Very well positioned, clean and friendly. No wine available by the glass so had to buy a bottle - not a major but found that strange. I would recommend it to people - went for a run in the morning and landed up on a dirt road on a grape farm - fantastic

I stayed there for 5 nights on a business trip with a few colleagues. Room: Mine wasn't very big, but still well equipped with fridge, AC, TV, etc. The bathroom was pretty small with space for a shower, tap and toilets but quite functional and always well cleaned. If you're not woken up by the loud AC, the birds will...
