Great Rooms,Friendly staff and Breakfast always great.Make sure you request a river view as they are right on the banks of the Orange River with secure parking.Would be great if there was at least a bottle of water in the room fridge - That is my only gripe

The saving grace of this establishment is it's beautiful location - right on the Orange River. The front rooms are spacious - the rear rooms rather cramped. My shower went hot and cold and I could hear all the goings on in adjacent rooms. Breakfast is ample.

Stunning location on the Orange River. The sunsets are beautiful. Safe and secure parking. The rooms are large and very comfortable with all the amenities required. The breakfast is excellent. Highly recommended as a stop over. This was our third stay here and we will be back.

We recently travelled from Lime Acres to Augrabies Falls National Park with my father and his wife; upon our drive back home we spent the night at Affinity Guesthouse in Upington (apparently my father has spent a night there on numerous occasions in the past; it is his preferred accommodation in Upington). Our room had an amazing river view; the... More

We stayed for one night on our trip from Johannesburg to Cape Town (the long way round!) and found it efficient, clean and well priced. The breakfast was good and the room, while basic, was airconditioned - Wifi was throughout and the view of the river was special.

My husband and I stayed here as part of our honeymoon road trip through South Africa. My husband has stayed here before, while working and he loves it. Magda was so friendly and welcoming. The room had an amazing view over the river and was very comfortable. I'll definitely be back :-)

We have stayed here before but keep coming back when we visit Upington as it is consistently good. The staff are pleasant, rooms are very good and clean and breakfasts excellent - what more could one need? We always try and arrive early so that we can spend a peaceful afternoon on the verandah overlooking the river.

We booked this accommodation late as we had some issues with tyres on our vehicle. The room was spacious, well appointed and clean. The bed was good, the view over the river pleasant- everything worked. No complaints. We can recommend the establishment.

We arrived in Upington after dark. Decided to drive down towards the river. The only guesthouse in the street with their lights on and obviously open for business was the Affinity. We were well received and had a very comfortable night. Would stay again.

When staying close to the river you should expect cold nights. This guesthouse is no exception especially as it is situated in an area that gets extremely hot in summer. The tiled floors may be cool in summer but bring your slippers as there are very small carpets in the room. Ample blankets and airconditioners help to break the cold... More
