They rate themselves as a 4* establishment. Rubbish! My room was 2,5 by 2,5 metres, a 60x30cm cupboard and a hook on the wall for hanging clothes. Bathroom (shower, basin, toilet) had not a single shelf, even in the shower - just leave your toothbrush on the toilet seat. Breakfast was mediocre to poor. Insufficient parking. On the good side:...

We had an excellent overnight stay at Moonriver Guest House. Our room was fantastic and incredibly comfortable. It was an exceptionally cold night even for Upington and our room was equipped with enough blankets for us not to be cold.

We were three couples arriving after a week camping in the Richtersveld. We looked forward to a nice hot shower. NONE of us had hot water, in the middle of winter! Amenities poor for a four star guesthouse. Bad coffee, no milk pods, no rusks, no body lotion, soap or shampoo. Kettle a mission to plug into a hidden socket.... More

Want a good nights sleep in a pretty clean guesthouse? This is it! Warm welcoming friendly staff, lovely accommodation, beautiful view of the river! You can have an excellent dinner right here if you want . Parking is a bit of a problem. Otherwise an excellent choice!

The guesthouse is centrally located in Upington. We stayed in the honeymoon suite which was exquisite. The bathroom was bigger than the bedroom, with an enormous Jacuzzi tub. Very romantic with a good bed and soft bedding. The pillows were very firm. The room offers coffee facilities and a bar fridge. The breakfast was very good and the views from... More

We arrived late at Moonriver guesthouse, and after booking a family room, were taken to two different annexes of the guesthouse - 5km away - before we received our rooms (one had a key missing). The place we stayed at does not deserve a four star rating. We may still have been able to excuse the lack of attention to... More

We booked accommodation for a tour group at Moonriver Guesthouse. When making the reservation, the manager, Morne, advised that they will be staying in an annex, which was fine with us. When our group arrived, they were actually taken to a complete different property; the annex wasn’t even on the same property. We never received an address of this property,... More
