The Roadhouse is very close to the fish river canyon. Its a very lovely place with comfortable rooms. After a sandy drive we enjoyed the pool very much. The apperance of the reception and restaurant is unique. Dinner and breakfast are excellent. We can highly recommend this place.

We camped here for only 1 night which had good facilities. The whole place is quite funky with cars and equipment everywhere. The food was good and you could pay on card. We had a quick dip in the pool also.

we had lunch here and enjoyed it very much, the food was good, the service friendly and the interior very unique. There's a large collection of oldtimers and all kinds of retro stuff from the old roadhouse which creates a special atmosphere.

What a fun place to explore... we only stayed for drinks and food on our way back to Canyon Village. There was so much to see, take pictures of, what a unique fun place ! Wished we could have stayed a bit longer.

Great location and superb service! We had a great time. Just too short... ;-) The food was excellent and the we also enjoyed the hiking trail. The facilities for day visitors are also recommendable! Keep it up!

We stayed here on our week-long drive from Windhoek to Cape Town. This is a whimsical and very comfortable place to stay. Our room was very quiet, with a great bed (I have a bad back). The staff was friendly, and the food was very good. I have never seen a roadhouse that looks like this. The dining area is... More

We had a wonderful stay at Canyon Roadhouse, spending two nights at this whimsical slice of mid-century Route 66 Americana in the heart of the Namibian desert. It was a great base for exploring Fish River Canyon. Our room was spacious and very clean and comfortable. The food at the restaurant (where you'll be doing all of your eating since... More

Good rooms and excellent food. There is a Route 66 feel with lots of old motors everywhere. However the electricity cuts out on a regular basis. This is why I only give it 3 stars. Although it is in the desert it is very cold at night.

My wife and I with her parents stayed at the Canyon Roadhouse for one night on our way to Windhoek. It is a good place to stay in the middle of the harsh Fish River Canyon area. The decor is great and the place reminds you of a typical American roadhouse in the desert. The rooms are very comfortable with... More

This place is so random but so cool! All of the old cars give it a very surreal feeling. Our room was comfortable and the food was good. The bar is a great place to hang out! And the proximity to Fish River Canyon is fantastic. Such a neat place, I highly recommend it! Oh and go to the bakery... More
