"A very pleasant stay! Felt like home away. Very professional service. "
"We enjoyed our stay at Bain's House immensely. The room was very comfortable, just a little cold, but the Aircon and bathroom heater made it comfortable. The breakfast was also good. Highly recommend the place for other travellers."
"We stayed in the self-catering unit. It had everything we needed, including
an inside braai. We received a friendly reception, everything was neat, and we cannot criticize anything."
"I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. We were met with a friendly smile although poor Berna was sick with flu. We had freedom to walk around and explore and sit in the garden. The accommodation was everything you want for an overnight stay or even longer. Luxury in a compact way. Thank you and I will reco..."more
"We only stayed one night during winter (June). It was a cosy evening, with a fireplace inside the room. The bathroom and shower facilities were very nice and not cramped, especially the heater in the bathroom for the cold evening. If you have very active children, then the space in the room/dining a..."more
"I only stayed for 1 night with the staff friendly and helpful. The room was clean. Does offer reasonable value for money."
"We appreciated the comfort of the unit for the weary traveller (from Pretoria).
The inside braai facility was especially welcomed.
Overall 4 stars are appropiate because of the completeness of facilities that are provided at an affordable price. "
"Very charming and conveniently located. "
"Every trip to the Northern Cape starts with a night at Bain's House. This time, the family suite comfortably accommodated the four of us perfectly and the 'pool with the view' was an excellent refresher after 10 hrs. drive."
"We enjoyed our stay very much as we lived amidst the grape fields and were served dinner and breakfast in a very nice room or on the patio next to our bedrooms. The guest house is not inhabited by the hosts but build completely separate. For meals the landlady and her staff came over to serve us won..."more
"Very comfortable, very friendly, very worthwhile."
"In the past, I have always used hotels. I do not like "intimate' living and this was my first experience of a guesthouse. And most suitable it was too. Businesslike welcome, explanation of entry and exit, and then peace and quiet. Even laymans directions on how to operate one's computer. Individual ..."more
"During the December holidays, my husband and I ventured to the Northern Cape, an unlikely destination for many South Africans during the hot summer months. We, on the other hand, were on a "memory trip" as hubby grew up in a small place called Postmasburg.
On our way back to Cape Town, our last..."

"Bains House is very comfortable and the establishment is beautiful! "
"A very beautiful place. Would stay there any day!!"
"Everything was in good order. The reception was very friendly and we will definitely stay over again."
"This is an excellent establishment and provided extremely comfortable accommodation as a break on the long haul from Paternoster in the Cape to Gaborone, Botswana. Although expensive, given the quality of the surroundings, service and equipping of the room and the whole guest house, it was value for..."more
"Always an pleasure to stay at Bain's House."
"We are definitely going back.
Friendly hostess who knows how to treat her guests. Rooms excellent and clean. Beautiful setup. Not overpriced."
"I stay at many guest houses and found the stay very relaxing, food excellent, room brilliant. I have made it a ruling that all my reps stay there when they visit Upington.
Good work. Keep it up.
Ps. The only fault that I can think of is that the shower sprays water very hard, The s..."
"We enjoyed our stay. Very friendly host.
Beautiful and clean place!
"The self catering unit for four people was very good value. The unit was very comfortable and clean. "
"It was with trepidation that we approached a sweltering hot Upington on the 18th of December 2006...I had booked our stay at Bain's House via the Internet and was unsure about what we would find.
What unexpected pleasures awaited us as we crossed the threshold . Khoi fish in a cool oasis of ..."
"I and my children had a wonderful time at Bain's. The rooms are exquisite, the garden and communal area fantastic. I will definitely revisit. "
"I enjoyed my stay very much. The reception was friendly when I got there, even though it was a bit late. The room was fantastic and it felt
more like a holiday destination than an business sleep over. Thanks a lot
for everything and I will definitely make use of your services in the ..."
"The friendly reception and excellent facilities were commented on by my relatives from North Carolina, USA and from Germany. The central situation is very convenient and eliminated any hazzles of finding the accommodation.
The recommended places to eat were also just right.
"Lilian and I have been extremely satisfied with Bain's House. It was as we have expected it should be. We could take a 'deep breath' there, since we were on our way from Swakopmund to Johannesburg by bus. Abel took great care of us and we had a lovely day in the garden, wonderful supper by candellig..."more
"Bain's House is a true oasis in - sometimes very hot - Upington. We found everthing like described at SafariNow. Unfortunately we could not have dinner there, but were referred to La Must - an excellent restaurant up the street. Overall very recommendable for the wary traveller!"
