The facilities in general were wonderful, reasonably priced and staff helpful and friendly. For us as family we would have liked a self catering option. General suggestion is to at least have small fridge in rooms to keep travellers food / drinks cold. We enjoyed our stay here and will definitely recommend to friends and family.

This is a gem of a place, beautifully designed and decorated and built to blend into the rocky surroundings. Two spacious rooms per brick hut as well as the main building all have thatched roofs. Sundowner on the nearby rocky outcrop was special. The built-in bar there was tastefully done. Service was very friendly and helpful. They have a unique... More

Very friendly and helpful staff. Wonderful setting. Enjoyed the blending of the chalets with the rocky environment. Good departure point for Fish River Canyon as well as Ais-Ais Hot springs. Will definitely return.

The taste and quality of the food can be improved. Breakfast was okay, but we didn't like the dinner at all. Steak, chips, broccoli and carrots were on the menu, but the meal was pretty much tasteless overall.

We stayed here for 2 nights end of April. Upon arriving we were greeted at the entrance by Lydia, and were taken to our cottage (#37). A nice clean little house all the way at the end. Meals was good. The people working at reception was amazing helping us with our visit to the canyon, and getting us fresh coffee... More

What an excellent place to stay, with the most friendly people. Fantastic food. The most splendid views. We had an excellent experience seeing a Black Spitting Cobra eating a Short- Snouted Grass Snake

Very nice, friendly staff, very nice rooms, good service and very good food. The roads tavelling to the Lodge in very good condition and traveling to Fish River Canyon itself is quick and close by. I will recommend it to any body.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Canon Village lies at the foot of a sweeping rock face in Gondwana Canon Park. Well-appointed cottages in the Cape Dutch style afford views of the vast canyon scenery. The thatched main building is built right into the massive granite boulders and houses a restaurant and cosy bar. With the famous Fish River Canyon just 20 km away the village is a perfect starting point for exploring the canyon. Dozens of murals depict the history and culture of the Bondelswart Nama, the earlier inhabitants of this area. Relish the peace and quiet and enjoy the views at the 'pool with a view'. ... more   less
