We arrived a little bit early, but that was no problem! Had the family room which was great for us ! Neville was very helpful - thanks to him we could book a trip to the cheetah conservation fund. He also made sure that we got a discount!

The accommodation was very comfortable and clean and the breakfast was very good to start your day The reception staff were very helpful with suggestions of things we could do locally. Great location to break up a journey between Windhoek and Etosha.

Thank you for the review. We also like our really cool environment friendly air conditioners. It contributes greatly to the comfort levels experienced. Perhaps something that is worth mentioning is the fact that we offer Free Secure Parking and Fast WiFi throughout the premises. Certainly helps one to stay in touch. More

Well maintained small hotel. God quality of rooms and beds, doors and windows that really close, so that Moskitos stay outside. Aircon working and cooling. Small Swimmingpool in a nice garden. Friendly owners. Good breakfast. Safe and quiet environment. Parking available in the shade. Otjiwarongo is a good place to fill up your stocks. You should not miss the Cheetah... More

Very clean-well furnished- actually elegant- room. The meals were fantastic--likened to gourmet- delicious and plenty! The owners were kind and fun to visit with. The shower was abundant hot water, and the AC was plenty cold. Bush Pillow was close enough to Etosha to make our drive easy and not burdensome. Great place to stay and the price was reasonable-...

Great place to stay, room was clean, beds were comfortable, breakfast was good, owners were friendly. Clean towels after your swim. We traveled around Namibia on business and must say that this was by far the best place we stayed at.

Bush Pillow Guest House was an excellent and comfortable stopover with a location ideal to break the journey from Windhoek to Etosha. We enjoyed the evening meal of Lancashire Hotpot with a difference.

The weirdest shower I ever had to take. The shower is in the smallest bath I've ever seen, unless you are a 3 year old child, so taking a bath is out of the question. The showerhead is so low, you have to almost crouch down to fit underneath it. again perfect for a 3 year old child I suppose.... More
