We only stopped for one night on our road trip but it was a beautiful cottage very spacious and well equipped. Always good to stay in the natural bush away from the town. My husband followed the hiking trail in the morning and found it well marked out and easy to follow. We did not eat at the restaurant.

Our second visit to this place, we wanted to come back (it's the ideal stop if you're heading north) and stay again in the magnificent mountain suites. We booked again the honeymoon suite and again had a wonderfull stay, great welcome, the set up of the mountain suites is unique and gives good privacy, we recommend to sit out on... More

We spent three nights at Naries over Christmas and enjoyed a very peaceful stay in the Manor House. The retreat is about 30kms west of Springboks with fantastic unspoiled views all around. The room was comfortable and the food was a very high standard. Staff were flexible, helpful and efficient. They really did seem to work as a team. There... More

This was our second visit to Naries. The first time we stayed,mew rented a self-catering villa which was so special - braiding under the night sky was unforgettable. This time around we stayed in the Mountain Suites. It was just incredible - the room is luxurious, and fully kitted out. The view is breathtaking. Breakfast and dinner were taken care... More

Naries a retreat from everywhere. Rooms are built into large Rocks in the edge of Overlooks. Wild life is close by for viewing. Field mice came into the room apparently to get out of the cold. After seeing us int its bed, it made a hasty retreat out under the door through its apparent chewed out entrance/exit. That said, this... More

The place itself is a beautiful and well maintained farm with hiking trails. Staff is friendly and the meals are good. Rooms are very basic (no TV, no fridge) and cold (design) which was actually disappointing if you think about the rates of at least R1700 per night. For the same amount we stayed in way better places.

We stayed 2 nights in one of the selfcatering cottages. It had excellent view over Namakwaland, but the location was quite windy. The cottage was well equiped and comfortable. Walking the trails was pleasant; the reward being the magnificent viewpoint.

We where very much surprise with our accommodation. The location is very peaceful, private and well equipped. If you enjoy nature with zero noise we will definitely recommend it. Our only regret was that our stay was so short
