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.

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

This is by far the best place that I have stayed at in Namibia and I have been there many times for extended stays. Best ever rooms, location, parking, grounds, meals and staff. It took me a minute to realize that the check-in girl at the front desk and the breakfast girl are two different people and are indentical twins!

We stayed here on the way to Etosha National Park. We had a very pleasant room and tastefully decorated bathroom, and a good night's sleep.
