        An unexpected delught”

        Location, location, location. And then everything else: quality, people, ambience - a sheer delight.

        River Place was our second choice. Based on our experience, it's now our first choice for when we come back. The only negative was the amount of noise the occupants of the room above generated, when all we wanted to do was sleep. Next time we will request a different room. I will definitely come back and spend more time next time. Upington surprised me as a town - beautifully green, clean, prosperous looking and safe. I would like to explore the area over a week or so.

        We stayed here twice in a recent visit to South Africa en route to the Kgalagadi NP. The staff are incredibly welcoming and helpful. The breakfast is great and the location handy to the Mall of the Kalahari. The river view rooms are particularly nice. Parking is secure and free.

        The standard of the property has slipped since our last visit in Feb 2014”

        Unfortunately The standard of the property has slipped since our last visit in Feb 2014. The room needs a litle bit of TLC. There are cracks in the ceiling. Rooms don't have a phone to contact reception. Internet speed was a real disappointment.. The member of staff on duty wasn't experienced/professional enough.

        Simply Outstanding ”

        This is an outstanding location on the banks of the orange river. The views are matched only by the incredible helpfulness of the owners and staff. As I arrived and stayed only on a Sunday night, the restaurant was not open but the staff was incredibly accommodating in helping me find food delivery options. I particularly want to commend Shameela who spent considerable time helping me with my food order. The rooms are spacious and accommodating, and I would recommend highly this facility to anyone staying in Upington.
