Lovely stay. Beautiful rooms on the river bank. Hostess was very friendly and accommodating. Airconditioning was working. Breakfast was done very nice. We were trevelling with a boat. A bit of a challenge to get through the narrow gates. Bigger challenge was to find the place as all the roadmarkings dated from before Van Riebeek landed.

What a fantastic over night stop over. Such a beautiful gem - over looking the river, lovely accommodation and superb food! Professional friendly staff. All the small gestures for our baby boy made such an impression! We will definitely consider your property the next time we are looking for accommodation in Upington.

What a great last minute decision to stay here. Room was great. Food was excellent but the view from your room or the pool is what makes this a 5. To stay anywhere else would be a great mistake. You must try the pork chops. Best we have ever had.

Beautifully appointed rooms with a stunning view of the Orange River. The food was amazing and the staff very friendly and helpful. We were sad that we could only stay one night. We will definitely be back some day soon. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

What a lovely place to sit and watch the sun set. Picture perfect ..with palm trees and the river. It was a very hot upington summer, but the airconditioning that worked so well, made us enjoy our stay just that much more. The friendliness of the staff at reception was wonderful.

Often when you look at pictures online it over estimates the experience however with this place I was blown away. It's much better in real life and you get much more than you expect. To go with it there's friendly staff and great service.
