After a long drive from Johannesburg, River Manor Place provided a delightful green oasis on the banks of the Orange River surrounded by a vineyard and orchard. The breakfast was exceptional and the only thing I would change would be booking a room with a river view, I ended up with a room with an internal courtyard view! Upington is...

Rooms are really spacious with quality finishing and doors leading to the veranda with a pool and grass running down to the river. Breakfast was...

Large and well appointed room with self-catering capabilities and stocked mini-fridge. Nice balcony overlooking a well groomed lawn and lovely river. Great spot for a glass or two of a wonderful South African wine while watching the sun go down. Beauline was the best and did all she could to make the two tired and hungry travelers enjoy their stay...

We were impressed with every aspect of River Place Manor. The setting, the room, and the easy, but tasty meals. All staff, including the owner, had one goal in mind and that was that your stay was perfect in every way.

We paid R1200 for the room for the night but found out the next morning that breakfast is not included! What a disappointment. For the amount in Uppington one expects at least breakfast. Towels were not fresh
