We chose this guest house to be in a quiet location away from the town after a long flight. A thirty minute drive out of Upington it was easy to find and all of the staff were friendly and welcoming. Extensive and beautiful gardens and large well equipped rooms. There are no restaurants nearby so set meals are available at...

But guest house African Vineyard deserve all 5 stars! On our way from Springbok to Upington we were not be sure if choosing some guesthouse in Upington or another one near city (we were in a hurry to KTP). We made very good choice!

Travelling from Namibia e were impressed with the abundance of water and the lovely garden. The room was huge with an abundance of cupboard space. Personnel were friendly and Saturday breakfast was good but Sunday morning was a disaster, no menu, no bread choice and little service - all had to be dragged out of the kitchen staff. After the...

The beautiful garden in the patio and the rooms comfortable not correspond to the services offered by the hotel. The breakfast was pretty poor and the restaurant is not always open. Also we left some clothes to wash at laundry service and some we have not been returned. unprofessional and disappointing

Set among the extensive vineyards on Kanoneiland this is a luxury gem that you definitely want to treat yourself to. The rooms are huge and very tastefully furnished. Beautiful green gardens complement the setting. Dinner was fantastic with Bruce & team working magic in the kitchen. Did not try the spa but hope to return soon.

The accommodation was stunning. Very simple but elegant. Warm and cosy. The surroundings were like an oasis in the desest. A slight issue was that the room backs on to the workshop where you could hear them working til late and started early in the morning. The meal was homely but we felt slightly over priced.

The staff must be commended for their service, and the setting is really beautiful, relaxing and an oasis. I'm struggling to give the rating for this place as there are so many aspects that make it a wonderful option to stay at, but, the pricing of our final dinner left a very sour taste in my mouth. We were wonderfully...

We loved this little inn tucked into a working raisin/grape farm.
