Great value. Good service. Very helpful in trying to find a restaurant that was open over the easter weekend. It's a shame that they do not offer dinner. However, it would be nice to have wireless on the weekend. The owners should not switch it off when they leave the premises.

It is located in a quiet part of the town. The rooms are very comfortable and clean and the wifi is working quite well. The reception and the dining area are nice decorated and the breakfast is very good. We just stayed for a night and our stay was very pleasant.

I have had a great stay at Bush Pillow. One thing i would recommend is that the bathroom I had to use had very poor water pressure in the shower and the hot and cold water was a problem to mix quite right. Otherwise the food was excellent and the rooms very clean and comfortable with nice beds.

Good room (unfortunately the shower was cold, but otherwise good), lots of space, nice chill-out outside, small swimming pool, good breakfast. Very secured with a large wall and fence. Parking within the walls and for free. Good restaurant closeby, but due to safety issues only reachable by car.

Thank you for the good review. We are sorry that you only had cold water though as it does just take a little while longer to get hot water to that room. It is the furthest away from the boiler. Otjiwarongo is actually a very safe little town and we also have a very active neighbourhood watch patrolling the town... More

Bush Pillow 'Guest House is a very nice, peaceful place in Otjiwarango.They have nice garden with pool, safe parking place and a very good breakfast. Good restaurants close by. It is very good place on the way to and from the Etosha park. We really can recommend the guest house.

We as a family have stayed in a lot of these type accommodations before, and Bush Pillow definitely rates as one of the best ! The owners was friendly and hands-on, rooms was clean and well decorated, and breakfast was delicious. Will see us again if going past on our next trip.

After landing in Windhoek, we decided to stay at the Bush Pillow Guest House on our way to Etosha. We had a great stay - the guest house is very cute (pool, yard, home-like living room, etc.) - service was exceptional (Neil provided great tips for Etosha and offered us two bottles wine as the shops nearby were closed) -...

We booked this room with a voucher from a well known tour operator, which is supposed to be accommodation only. The owner gave us a room that was below standards. The bathroom was a hole in the wall, the shower was not functional, we could hardly get the soap of our skin, let alone wash our hair. The garden and... More

Thank you for your review. I do think it would be good to state that the voucher purchased at Tourvest - Sense of Africa makes it clear that the accommodation is without breakfast or meals. I think it would be fair to state that you had a choice of a family room for the three persons, whilst the voucher was... More

The staff were very helpful. They exchanged some money for us which we desperately needed to continue our trip. We didn't have any transport and it was a public holiday so they dropped us off in town. We originally booked for dinner there but when we arrived they said that wouldn't be an option but they gave us directions to... More
