We stayed at the Affinity Guesthouse for one night on the way back from Kgalagadi. The property is located right on the river and we had an excellent view from our room on the 2nd floor and adjoining patio. The location is very peaceful and quiet and it was also a nice location to walk up the street and view... More

We used this as a stopover on our way to the Kgalagadi. The location is excellent and within easy walking distance to the center of town. The balcony overlooking the river is the perfect place to relax after a long day on the road. Good security, safe parking and a fridge in the room are welcome features when travelling. The... More

Great location by the river with terrace and very pleasant garden.. Rooms clean and quiet, good variety for breakfast. Manager very helpful for travel arrangements. She spent about 15 minutes getting the right people on the phone for us even though she was quite busy early morning.

We stop there on the way to Namibia and coming back. We felt every welcome by the couple on arrival and the place was very peaceful. We spent most of our time sitting by the pool (it would be nicer if the pool was filled more but I'm sure they have their reasons). They have plenty of rooms and serve... More

As soon as you enter the property you are aware that you are going to stay in a special place. The garden is superbly tended and everything looks well maintained within a picture perfect riverside setting. And it gets better and better. LOCATION: Within walking distance to shops and the town centre on the banks of a very pretty section... More

The rooms are good with en suite bathrooms, air conditioning and TV, some with views over the river and others set in the garden. Rooms are comfortable, clean and quiet and the rate includes breakfast, which was really good - including cereals,fruit,... More

We recently stayed at Affinity Guest House on our way both to and from The Kgalagadi Reserve. what a super place. The bedroom was large and well appointed with all we needed to make tea and coffee.

My room opened out onto a wide terrace at the back, overlooking gardens and the Orange River. Tea and coffee were provided, and the whole place was spotlessly clean.

Clean, spacious, well equipped rooms with wifi, and a relaxed ambiance. Our room over looked the Orange River and we joined the bird watchers on the veranda. Helpful staff and a delicious breakfast gets the day off to a good start.
