Bush Pillow guesthouse is a small, neat and safe place to stay. The room is comfortable, very clean with fridge, coffe&tea facility and a outside sitting area. We loved the pool and the relaxchairs as it was very hot. Breakfast included was tasty and plentiful.

Just not what we were expecting room and bathroom clean but tired. Friendly staff but a bit strange. Breakfast good but bacon very odd! Lots of alternatives available - not on trip advisor so advice is to shop around.

The rooms are classy, equipped with everything we needed, and well maintained, and the staff and owners are friendly. Good breakfast. Some lovely original art on display. Even the WiFi (sometimes really slow in Namibia) was adequate.

We originally booked when it stated we had the entire guest house 17 beds but all we needed was 8 beds. We chatted to Neville and his wife and they were extremely hospitable and made a plan to assist us with all our requirements. We had a lovely dinner in the outside dinning / lounge area.
