Spent a lovely night in a clean spacious room with all amenities incl air con for hot weather. Had vehicle trouble and had to return and they were amazingly accommodating and hospitable. Thankyou Libby's for a class act! Will certainly return!

We were one of three couples in our party, which of which had a 4x4 trailer. There was ample safe and secure parking for all our vehicles and trailers behind locked automated gates. Extremely friendly staff, and cosy rooms for a great night sleep. Quaint and reasonably priced gift store on the premises and a lovely bar just round the... More

Nice, celan, friendly staff. Liezel was so helpful with our group of 11 people. Secure parking on the premises, near to our room. We had a braai the evening and there were enough plates, knifes and forks for all. Will recommend this establishment to anyone that needs a place to stay in Upington!

On arrival after 11 hours of driving what a relief. Reception was warm and friendly. Quality of accommodation excellent with comfortable beds, neat and modern bathroom with shower, washbasin and toilet. The surroundings allowed us to kickback and relax with a great fire and braai - WELL WORTH THE STOP.

Jo'burg to Upington is a long drive but Liesel always makes one feel welcome! (It was a return visit for 2 of us). We were a group of 7 people accommodated in 4 rooms around the pool (which is being renovated for Summer). There was ample safe parking for 3 SUVs and 3 large trailers. (And, probably more). The rooms... More

This lovingly maintained guest house is very close to outfitting amenities such as the new Kalahari Mall and the 4 x 4 store, making it a convenient supply shop on your way to Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. Business travelers will appreciate the warmth of the staff and the comfortable "just-like-home" accommodations. And the sparkling pool is a life-saver at 36 degrees.... More

We stayed here on our way to Kgalagadi so that we could do our shopping for the trip. The staff were happy and helpful, and the owner kind and considerate. We arrived a day early and it was no problem for her to fit us in for an extra night, although the lodge seemed to be very full at breakfast... More

Set in a quiet residential area near the Oranje river, Libbys Lodge offers a nice recluse for a weary traveller. Despite being near a main road, it is quiet enough and has the expected pool to allow one to cool down in the Northern Cape heat. The rooms were well kept and one walks out into a lovely patio that... More

Ja no I stayed overnight travelling from Namibia to SA, and I had a good sized room with mini fridge and aircon. It was hellish at 36 degrees celcius at 7:30 pm. So that was a life saver for sure.

My husband and I stayed here for one night in June 2015 on our way to Namibia. We found the owner very friendly, the room clean and well equipped with good secure parking. We tried to stay there on our way back home but unfortunately it was fully booked.
