We spent 2 nights here. The hospitality of the owners Brunhilda & Jasper is a rarity these days. A real homely atmosphere. The rooms were clean & wonderfully decorated. The staff were friendly & helpful. The breakfasts were healthy, yummy & one was asked if you wanted a cooked breakfast. Suppers were magnificent - potjie and a steak braai both...

Always a wonderful experience to overnight with my groups at the Waterfront. What a great way to finish a tour to Namaqualand. We always receive personal attention, the rooms are beautiful and nicely decorated and the food is really outstanding.

Waterfront Guest farm is a little piece of tranquility on the banks of the Gariep (Orange) River in Upington. The ideal stop-over spot en route to/from the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. We have visited twice and each time made to feel like friends by the delightful owners - the second time we were even treated to a wonderful sundowner cruise on...

After struggling to find accommodation within our budgets that would seem comfortable for a stay just over a week long, I came across this gem at the last minute. The owners made us feel very welcome. Delicious breakfasts and dinners as well. They sure know how to braai! The rooms are lovely. Our stay was in winter and there was...

The owners, Brunhilda and Jasper and their youngsters Siglinda and JJ run this guest farm/lodge with warmth and care. They treat you like one of the family and you can't help feel like one after a couple of days. Stunning views from their lawn in front of the swimming pool, rides behind the speedboat or on the jetski, they really...

I also think there must be improvement on how you provide your supper, i did not not want to eat out because it is not easy to find restaurant, but i had to, because i was not happy with my supper on the first day.

Close to nature, clean rooms with fridges and aircons, excellent for the occupied business trip during the extreme summer temp's of Upington.. Will definitely recommend it! NC Government officials: Your dinner and supper allocations will be taxed! Thanks for a great stay!

What a find! The friendliest host and hostess, a setting quite magnificent, luxurious accommodation - and affordable! A cruise on the Orange River was the cherry on the top - but then there was the braai, and the roses, and the roosterbrood, and the hosts who are like family friends now ... I could go on and on!
