Canyon Roadhouse review

A quirky place to stay.

As themed roadhouses go this one gets it just about right. Could so easily tip over into being tacky but doesn't. It is instead a fun, lively place to stay. Our room was in one of the innner courtyards and was perfectly cool, clean and comfortable. It was within easy striking distance of the Fish River Canyon, which is about the only thing of note in the area.

Food was lovely and the bar was reasonably priced.

Canyon Roadhouse review

What an amazing hotel! We were delighted by the quirky surroundings. Eating dinner surrounded by vintage vehicles is a very interesting experience. The room was good with an air conditioning units which doubled as a heater once we got the hang of it. Comfortable beds and very friendly and helpful staff. The food was served hot and there was an interesting variety on the menu. It was easy to navigate our way to Fish River Canyon from the hotel.

Canon Roadhouse review

We had 2 nights there during our trip around Fish River Canyon.

All in all good service, but they were a bit surprised when we arrived and showed them our vouchers.
A nice spot in the middle of nowhere, with a beatiful view from top of the hill only a short walk from the lodge.
We did see some Oryx and Springboks on the plains.

Canon Roadhouse

We had three nights here to explore the Fish River area. It is a quirky place to stay with all the old vehicles inside and outside!

The staff were helpful, most especially Arvid, who helped to try and sort out a problem with our wheel rim, which had been damaged prior to our picking it up. But had been impossible to spot at the time of delivery as it was not visible until the tyre was flat and the wheel taken off!

We enjoyed our stay here and the food was very good. We also did a self guided walk here which was well marked out.

Quirky place to stay!

Weather very cold once the sun went down!

Bathroom freezing!

Lovely meals both nights and enjoyed chatting to the staff.

Had to buy a fleece in the shop to combat the cold!

Canon Roadhouse review

Canon Roadhouse was very easy to find and appeared 'oasis like' out of the dry landscape! It was in fact very much an oasis for us as it has it's own fuel pumps!!

The rooms are arranged around a courtyard 'motel style' and are clean, comfortable and perfectly adequate. The whole place has a somewhat quirky feel as the owner clearly has a passion for classic vehicles and the reception/dining area resembles a large motor museum!

The reception desk, bar and tables are squeezed in between the more important vehicles! We ate breakfast against the radiator of a tractor and for dinner our table was pushed up against the rear doors of an ambulance!! Different - maybe not exactly Africa but fun!!!

Perfect for visiting the Fish river canyon.

Good room with lovely shaded outside seating area. Good food and helpful unobtrusive service. Scenic sunset walk behind the hotel.
