Surprising decor with old vehicles

Pleasant check in. Quirky restaurant with old automobiles throughout. Dinner was a la carte from a simple menu. Nothing special.

There was oryx around the property eating the grass in the courtyard.

The hill behind the property was good for a hike to the top to take in the expanded view of the desert around.

It was too windy to use the pool.

The quaint petrol station added another quirkiness to the place.

Nice proximity to the Fish River Canyon and the interesting Quiver tree forest.

Canyon Roadhouse review

A really quirky place to stay. Relatively small and basic rooms but quite adequate and with air conditioning that worked well.

A relatively simple and small choice of meals but well cooked. I would go again.

Good time at Canyon Roadhouse

Great lodge to visit with small children. They were constantly looking at all the old cars.

The rooms were very nice. There is the possibility of doing a short walk up a hill, which is nice with sunset.

It is also very close to Fish River Canyon.

Different

Whereas we had good accommodation, it was a bit too whacky for us oldies.

The dining area was messy, the staff slow & not very professional & the food only average - I wonder what the place would be like when it is busy.

Quirky

As expected, this was a very quirky place with plenty of old cars and farm implements scattered around the grounds.

The bathroom was bigger than most with both a bath (when there's water shortage!) and shower.

There are old German number plates on the walls of the bathroom and other car pictures on the bedroom wall.

Quirky place to stay- good fun!

Canyon Roadhouse is very unusual, with old cars dotted around both inside and out. I completely missed the reception desk because it is in an old lorry! Inside the place has been designed like a garage with signs, workbenches etc. It is quirky and fun.

Our room was comfortable and followed the 'roadhouse' theme, with a really lovely bathroom (best shower of any on our trip!)
It was situated around a communal courtyard, but we had no problems with noise from other guests. There is also a small swimming pool on site with loungers and tables around it which we enjoyed.

The food in the restaurant is very good value and the staff are attentive and helpful.

Canyon Roadhouse is only 15-20 minutes from Fish River Canyon along a good gravel road. We left before dawn (the staff offered us a packed breakfast, which was very good) and arrived at the canyon before sunrise. The sun actually rises behind you as you look at the canyon, so it takes a while for the canyon to light up, but it is worth seeing the soft orange glow spread over the rocks. This is supposed to be a good time for photos - we certainly got better pictures in the morning than in the afternoon. It is worth walking from the main viewing area along the rim of the canyon - also better done in the cool early morning.

Canyon Roadhouse review

This is a marvellous place to visit and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.

Its location near to Fish River Canyon makes it a superb stopover.

The staff were marvellous and I would recommend this site to anyone.

Canyon Roadhouse review

Very interesting stay-worth it. Average on facilities-lack of external sitting area and pool not inviting.

Reasonable distance to Fish river canyon.
