"Friendly, comfortable, relaxing"
"A pleasant surprise awaited us after travelling through the barren sun scorched landscape.

The views and serenity is out of this world. We will definitely stay there again in our special room when we come through ..."more
"This guest house really deserves a five star rating. Perfect rooms and setting plus warm and friendly owners."
"Service, hospitality and accommodation was excellent - close to town with wonderful views over the Orange river - would definitely recommend"
"everything here is nearly perfect: the garden with the beautiful views and the spacious room, the breakfast etc.
But - unfortunately we have been accommodated in a room with no views- and that makes a big difference although the price is the same and on booking in Safari Now that is not shown..."
"We just loved it!! Clean rooms, luxurious furnished and super beds!! The view was magnificent. And we enjoyed the good breakfast."
"The best guest house in Upington with the rooms all facing the river, what a view!. The bed was very comfortable and linen clean, well equipped with a top of the range TV, lovely spacious and clean bathroom. We will be back!"
"The rooms were clean and comfortable and nicely decorated. River Place serves a very good breakfast but they seemed to struggle with having the guest house full and everyone having breakfast at a similar time. We would happily stay there again."
"We have enjoyed out stay. Very friendly people and beautiful views. We had the smallest room, but it was still comfortable. It has been our second stay and we will recommend the guest house."

The staff was very friendly, helpful and accommodating with respect to different special dietary requirements for three of the six memb..."more
"This must surely be one of the most delightful guesthouses in southern Africa. The accommodation was 5 Star, the bed was very comfortable and linen clean. Top of the range TV, lovely spacious, clean bathroom. Exquisite views and general ambiance was one of luxury comfort."
"We stayed twice; once on our way to Nambia and once on our return. Accommodation is excellant and postioning on the Orange River outstanding. First stay we were made to feel very welcome by the owner and her assitant Stephanie.

I would encourage everyone that I know to have a stopover and stay with you. We will most certainly be coming back very soon. This is what you call a top notch..."more
"If you want a 5 Star stay this is not for you. This is a 10 or 20 Star stay. Cannot fault anything. The most perfect stay anywhere. Would stay there again and again. Thanks River Place, you are the perfect place to stay."
"An oasis in the desert. A great location down by the river so quite I thought I would sleep through the day."
"Beautiful views over the river. Very stylish bedroom with nice bed."
" The accommodation was brilliant and certainly value for money. Oh, the location is unsurpassed. The host was very kind. Breakfast was good. Certainly a place worth revisiting."
"Ons het baie lekker gebly. Hulle het n pragtige uitsig oor die Oranje rivier. As jy verblyf soek wat nie geraas om jou het nie is dit die regte plek. Die kamer is van die beste toegerus. Ontbyd was baie lekker gewees. Net jammer ons kon nie so baie eet soos vir ons voorgesit is nie. Ronel (gasvro..."more

"We stayed overnight at the Riverside after spending nearly 3 weeks camping in the Central Kalahari and Kgalagadi Game Reserves and it was an excellent way to end our holiday. Lovely, large, comfortable bed and excellent breakfast. Would definitely recommend!"
"Everything was tastefully done with the minimum of fuss. The accommodation was to a high standard, so much so that my wife wants to come for a week's holiday. The location could not be better, right on the river and with outdoor living should you require it."
"After a long drive it was an absolute joy to walk into beautiful rooms with superb bathrooms. Underfloor heating was bliss! We enjoyed a fantastic braai on the patio overlooking the river while the kids enjoyed running in the nut orchard, scavenging as they played.
The most enjoyable breakf..."

"This superb, peaceful and relaxing accommodation, filled with birdsong, is situated in secure and beautiful surroundings on the banks of the Orange River, yet a stone's throw from the centre of Upington. An ideal stopover en route to Kalagadi Park from Johannesburg, or to Namibia.
"Beautiful river view with very good facilities. Breakfasts in the mornings were a feast."
"What a pleasant stay with beautiful decorated clean rooms. They were very nice and comfortable."
"Riverplace Guesthouse was one of the great B&B's during our 4 week trip. The house is modern and well equipped and is situated at the boarders of the Orange River. The hosts were really helpful to find our way in Upington. A place worthwhile to come back. "
"Riverplace Guest House must rank as having one of the best positions in the Northern Cape. Green lawns lead down to peacefully flowing Orange River, tall shady palms filled with birds, and all comforts provided. The owners were very welcoming and provided great support and help when we discovered a ..."more
"Very pleasant position between vineyards and the river. Really lovely room with excellent decor, and a great "kitchen" area by the entrance and lovely bathroom. They are in the middle of building a new block of bedrooms which will have a river view, so a little noisy and messy in the gardens at pres..."more
"5 Star room, good service, peaceful surroundings. I will recommend to others to visit."

"Upington is far from anywhere, so by the time we found the Riverplace Guest House we were ready to be spoiled ... and so we were.
The setting on the bank of the Orange River was beautiful. The sunset was gorgeous.
Our room was very comfortable - king size bed, crisp clean linen, s..."
"This establishment has to be on of the best Guest Houses we have pleasure of visiting in South Africa.
The rooms are tastefully and elegantly furnished and decorated, and the gardens stretching down to the banks of the Orange River are perfectly manicured and maintained. The establishment gives..."
"Ronel and Piet are the most accommodating hosts in Upington. I made a wrong booking and she accommodated us the next day. Immediately broad us tea and served that on the stoop, the most beautiful view over the Orange River. She granted my request for a take away breakfast as we needed to leave early..."more
