If you want to stay close to the highway, the Hardap dam and in the countryside, this is the place to be. We come @ Bastion now for 3 years and is Always a big pleasure to stay here. Salome has a heart for People and she decorated her guesthouse in a Unique way. The price is good and the... More

Simply put, I would not recommend this establishment, as the owner let us down terribly and was rude and unprofessional. We were travelling in a group of seven, so I had booked three rooms to accommodate us appropriately. On arrival, we got a frosty greeting from the owner, who proceeded to show us to just two rooms. Although there were... More

This bed and breakfast is located behind a neighbour’s farm and next to the owners’ house. It is well sign posted, being about 5 min from the B1, 14 km north of Mariental. There is some building work going on at the moment (October 2012) for the new camping site, but this should be completed in November. The building work... More

On our way to the south we stayed one night in the garden. The camping was not finished yet, but we could place our camper between the nice smelling orange trees and use toilet and sink. Very friendly people and in a few months this place will have a beautiful camping area with private ablution blocks.

This was our second overnight stop in Namibia from Cape Town. It was quite pleasant. We did not know that there was no restaurant, so the owner had to open the shop to sell us some food to braai the night. The facilities were adequate, and the place was clean. It is a nice stop-over and a reasonable price. Will... More

Finding good accomodation along the route between Cape Town and Windhoek is a challenge - and this choice ranked miserably compared to our experience the previous night at Noordoever Guest House. The reception was unfriendly and although I had booked a long time before and there were only 3 guests, my brother and I were placed at opposite ends of... More

If it was, we would be staying for weekends more often. The rooms are excellent, everything is spotless and well thought of. Great facilities, including a communal kitchen, braai facilities and WiFi. It could not be faulted.

We stopped there one night on our way from Maltahöhe to Windhoek. The surroundings are maybe not super attractive (in the middle of some farms and fields, 15km from town), but the location is quiet and the accommodation very good. We didn't see the owner much, she even seemed to avoid us a bit (maybe we were a bit too... More

We arrived one afternoon and were warmly welcomed by Salome into her small but amazing craft & fishing shop for a cold beer. The farmyard decor was fascinating. Rooms and shared kitchen spotless and comfortable. Internet was included (still fairly rare in Namibia). A fabulous stopover on route through Namibia. We will be back.
