Absolute gem. The owner, Salome, went out of her way to assist us and the accommodation was great. Rooms well equipped with tea/coffee making facilities, heaters for the (very) cold winter nights and lovely en suite bathrooms. There's a large communal kitchen which really is fully equipped or meals are available from the charming shop and kitchen. Highly recommended.

Ideal for those going to fish at Hardap dam as it is only 9km from the dam. The rooms were so lovely, extremely clean, very homey and the owner pays a lot of attention to detail and making everything have a special unique touch. There are braai facilities on the premises, a lovely little shop full of unique souvenirs, they... More

We spent one night during December at the lovely Bastion farmyard camping ground. Very well situated for a stop -over. Top scores for quality, originality, cleanliness and friendlines of the staff and owners. The individual bathrooms for each camp site were originally artistic, well designed and super clean. Small touches, such as the practical and playful bathroom hooks, soap in... More

Admittedly I wasn't sure what to expect when communicating with the owner by email. She didn't seem to be too friendly and we were prepared for every eventuality. However, everything turned out very well. The owner is in fact a very nice lady and the room we've booked (No 5) was just awesome. Very clean, very quiet...just right. We took... 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.
