We started our Namaqualand flower journey in Naries. Since our last visit 15 years ago the hotel has been upgraded with really friendly staff. The rooms are comfortable with basic bathrooms and our room did not have a shower. On the Saturday evening cocktails were offered at the hotels mountain boma. What a pleasant surprise - the glass enclosed boma... More

Our family of four stayed in one of the self catering cottages on-route to Namibia. The dinner was more than 5star quality and one of the best experiences of our holiday. Stay here of you want to treat yourself to a special experience.

We were fortunate enough to spend a night in one of the mountain suites. What an absolute treat and "must do" to anyone in the area. From the spectacular suite complete with personal touches like flowers in the bathtub, to the superb menu and food on offer at the guest house. The staff are super friendly and very accommodating.

This is an amazing place to stay! We stayed in one of the Mountain Suites, these suites are thatched three room structures built around boulders. There was a large sitting room with mini bar, an enormous bedroom that opened out to a deck with a separate bathroom. The mountain suites are about 1km from the main house and overlook stunning...

My parents and I recently travelled to Springbok to find my grandmother's grave. My father lost his Mum when he was 8. We found her tombstone which is perfectly preserved and it was really a joy. The other surprise was the exceptional stay at Narries. The separate cottages are well worth it. They are much nicer and have a unique... More

We stopped over here on our way to Namibia and thought this the most amazing place to stay. Our Mountain suite was spacious and comfortable, these unusual thatched huts are beautifully designed absolutely stunning and the setting is almost unreal. Incredible views and very private. Beautiful touches including flower petals in the bath. The staff was very welcoming, a hearty... More

After receiving a very warm welcome we were guided to our retreat suite, although I had seen the suites on the website, I was shocked at the size of our accommodation, huge ! We had our own parking spot and private secluded access to the suite, inside was a lovely lounge area that lead into the bedroom. We always stay... More
