We recently booked mixed accommodation at the Canyon Roadhouse. We had our parents in the lodge rooms, and me & my sister took on the campsite. Our check in was quick and the lady immediately swapped our campsite around, placing us right next to the bridge, so that we were in close proximity of our folks. This also meant we...

The Roadhouse was very close to the Fish River Canyon and had all the amenities we required. Good food, great service, and even had a gas station on site, which was handy because of the remote location.

After trying to have lunch in the HOT HOUSE Bar, we went to our room to discover that the room was 37 deg C and after an hour it got down to 35 deg C. The manager tried other rooms but the aircons were all useless. She moved us to another building and the aircon worked well. However the hot...

The natural choice for accommodation in Fish River Canyon is the NWR Hobas campsite inside the gates of the national park but if you venture 12km outside you'll find this infinitely better alternative. The roadhouse had excellent facilities for campers including large campsites, good ablution facilities, running water, a swimming pool and even a postbox! The staff are incredibly friendly...

In November 2016 we spent 3 weeks in Namibia doing a self-drive. We stayed one night in Canyon Road House, and it was a night to never forget. After a great diner between the oldtimers, we returned to the camp site to prepare our tent for the night. By accident we locked ourselves out of the vehicle while the keys...

We drove up from Cape Town and spent a pleasant night at the roadhouse. The rooms were clean and quiet, we had a look at the fish River Canyon, followed by a lovely meal under the stars before heading off early the next day to Sossousvlei.

It was worth every cent! The service was friendly. The food amazing. The rooms were very very beautiful. I loved that no two rooms looked the same. Room number 8 is simply amazingly beautiful. I will most definitely be coming back.

We stayed for a few days in our own tents. Large shaded pitches, most with a large tree giving ample shade. Braai area with powerful light on a pole making cooking easy. Water tap on the pitch. Decent ablutions. Swimming pool, restaurant. We missed a convenience shop to buy milk and bread and other simple items. Staff kind and helpful....

Good lodging with friendly staff and good quality food. The old motor wrecks in the garden are very nice and adds to the ambiance. Close to the canyon for a day trip. Luckily the rooms are equiped with aircons, as Feb was very hot

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Due to its elaborate decor Canon Roadhouse has acquired a sort of cult status in Namibia: the good old days of the automobile are celebrated in the theme restaurant and bar. Enjoy a slice of our legendary Amarula cheesecake among coachwork arranged with loving care. The geology, flora, fauna and history of the area are explained on display boards at the Canyon Information Centre. Situated directly on the road to the Fish River Canyon, 14 km from the gate to the viewing points, Canon Roadhouse offers 24 immaculate en-suite rooms with air conditioning, a swimming pool and a petrol station. ... more   less
