The room we were provided was dank and musty. But that wasn't the main issue. We'll simply say that the level of politeness and service provided by the manager to different members of our party seemed to us to be very... selective on his part. It could simply be an unfortunate coincidence that the members of our party who felt... More

Dear Sean: Thank you for your review. It always amazes me to find that people would be willing to deliberately do what you have just done. The truth of the matter is you never had any reservation at Bush Pillow and you never stayed at our establishment. Yes you and your group did in fact visit Bush Pillow for perhaps... More

I am happy to attest that i enjoyed my stay at the above mentioned B & B. This is a place I will recommend to my friends and family members. The service received was excellent, both in the rooms and from the kitchen staff.

Dear Reo: I think the only reason why you did not get the password for the wireless is because you arrived late at night and left early after breakfast. Your arrival was already after the office closed and I would assume that is the reason for it. Our wireless Internet is indeed very fast and freely available to all our... More

I really enjoyed my stay at Bush Pillow, a beautifully landscaped cottage-type guest house. I had the room with french doors looking out on the pool. Slept well in a comfortable bed and breakfast was very good. I was working for 10 days in Otjiwarongo and the BP was a comfortable green oasis to come home to. During the bridge... More

Dear Mr. Goodchild: It was a pleasure hosting you at Bush Pillow and indeed a great pleasure to take you to Etosha National Park. It was so good to actually get all the animals we did, rhino bathing, lion, badgers, Giraffe drinking water especially for you, all the antelopes and the hyena as a bonus. We are also glad you...

I stayed at Bush Pillow last summer and would highly recommend it. Peaceful surroundings, nice pool area and a sound sleep. Very kind, knowledgeable and helpful hosts. I went to Etosha for the day from here. Easily arrived in time for the gates opening and the nice morning light. The breakfast packed to go was more than enough and went... More

We stayed for 1 night at the beginning of October, on the way to Etosha at the start of our self-drive holiday. We left Windhoek International Airport at 1530 and arrived at Bush Pillow at about 1840. Bush Pillow was an ideal and welcoming stop-over. The room was spacious and well decorated. We enjoyed a delicious supper by the little... More

Really nice place with safe parking, comfortable rooms and a very pleasant small pool and poolside area. We visited Waterberg from here as a day trip which was really worthwhile and no problem in a day on decent roads. Breakfast average but that goes for Namibia as a whole. A few qualms with air con and toilet flush but staff... More

My husband and I found Bush Pillow to be an ideal stopover on our way back south from Etosha. The room was spacious, very well equipped with a comfy bed and the meal was excellent. Neville gave us very helpful advice on the best route to take to Sossusvlei in our 2WD.
