We arrived on a stinking hot day and the room was cool without the air conditioning being on. Good design. The room was comfortable apart from the oddity of the bed being two single beds attached together to be a king bed. This isn't unusual, but the beds were made up with single sheets as two separate beds (instead of... More

We stayed here with our two children (9 and 13) en route from Windhoek to Cape Town. The guesthouse is peaceful, clean and the staff and owner are very helpful. We enjoyed the small pool - December is v hot here - and were given good dinner recommendations. Thank you.

I made a reservation for the 18th of August 2015. I told the receptionist that we would arrive at about 7 0'clock the evening of the 18th. I asked her how far is Springbok from the Namibian border? She answered 200km. It is actually 113km. She did not know. Then the guesthouse called me at 6 o'clock on the evening... More

I was disappointed in this guesthouse. Was expecting more from a 4 star facility. Especially after so many excellent places that were 3 star. Rooms were adequate, nice linen. Bathroom was dirty- shower corners need a good scrub and mould on the window tiles behind blinds. Towels small and hard. Crappy bath mat. No wifi - we had to call... More

For an overnight stop-over en route to/from Namibia and Cape Town, located away from traffic noise, best room with space and excellent view is at southern end of rooms (could be cold in winter). Wi-Fi is fine but internet access unreliable. Excellent breakfast offering, beautifully presented and with friendly service. Helpful, personalised owner-based management (early-2015). Convenient parking.

I agree with most of the review by Trevor H. The room was a good size but the shower was defnitely in need of some tlc & for four stars we certainly expect toiletries in the bathroom & not two mismatched plastic glasses. The view from our room was of the mountain & the grounds includng the swimmimg pool were... More

We use this guest house in Springbok for our Senior Citizens on the Namaqualand trip. The guest house is situated in a nice area close to the business area & restaurants and our check-in was hassle free. The rooms are spacious and none of our guests had complaints. The breakfast was excellent and the bus & trailer had secure parking.... More

Nice accommodation which was well furnished and with plenty of space in the room. The breakfast in the morning was very good and the guest house is close to town and the local restaurants, although being a Sunday, the choice of open restaurants was severely limited.

A pleasant and adequate guest house. Over rated and over priced at 4 star. No toiletries in the shower, just a piece of soap. The shower rose was hanging by a thread and not adjustable. Not good. Breakfast adequate.
