“An oasis”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012

Excellent value for money. We were have been there twice on our way to the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. The breakfast is awesome. We had a very spacious room. The bed was divine. We slept so well.The huge pool is a welcomed retreat to the hot and dry air that is Upington. It has aircon and a tv, It has a stunning garden. We have stayed at other bed and breakfast because Libby's was fully booked. They were more expensive and not at the same standard. Do book in advance!

Room Tip: Book in advance

Libby's Lodge in Upington is a little Oasis near the Kalahari desert. Very often, while travelling you book places online. This can be very dicey as you never know what exactly you are going to get in terms of accommodation and star ratings. Libby's exceeds expectations! It is neat and relaxing. The rooms are tastefully decorated, situated in a very well manicured garden. The huge pool is a welcomed retreat to the hot and dry air that is Upington. I certainly recommend the stop-over, particularly if you wanting to leave early to get to the Kgalagadi, Libby's Lodge packs a delicious "pad kos" (breakfast). Even though Libby's Lodge is on the main road this certainly is not a problem as the garden remains peaceful and when in the rooms, one does not hear the outside noise.

If there is one word that sums up Libby's Lodge, it would be tranquility.

Room Tip: The garden rooms seem preferable to the rooms in the main house, but they all have their own patio a...

B&B in a lush garden setting, nice swimming pool. Quiet location outside the city centre (which we preferred). Fairly small but cosy rooms. Shower area is a bit spartan but fine. Breakfast is self-service. Overall a simple, but nice place. I would go back.
