Leaving this charming Roadhouse was definately not easy as we had an unforgettable stay. Food, service and accomodation was all superb. There is a lot do do in the region and would definately stay more than two nights next time. The visit to the canyon was easey doable and would love to have planned more time to enjoy more walks in the area.
Every time I pull in to Canyon Roadhouse I think, "This is so out of place," and then I have a really great time. At first glance it looks like the US motor-head workshop decor is a cheap veneer. But there is history here that is worth enjoying. It used to be a workshop and it's location made it a necessary stop for many weary travellers. That hasn't changed. The campsite is well placed, cared for and serviced with ablution blocks that work well. The food is reliably satisfying. That they have a virtual monopoly in the area hasn't diminished their quality.
We stayed over on our way up through Namibia. its a fun place in terms of decor. Very friendly staff. Clean rooms, good bathrooms. Meals at the restaurant were good- we just had a dinner and a breakfast before leaving. Would def stay again if we were passing. Staff were really trying hard- they were quieter than usual because of Covid.
It is a must stay if you are in the area of the Fish River Canyon. From the experience of checking in at the "truck" inside the reception area to the restaurant, accommodation and the surrounding grounds filled with automotive memorabilia of every shape and size is an experience to behold.
Lovely accommodation close to the Fish River Canyon and Ai-Ais hot water springs. Clean, friendly accommodation with interesting décor and a must for anyone who loves old cars. The menu is very small and the wines available were limited but this was due to Covid closure and very few people travelling at the moment. The staff were fantastic.
