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.

didn't stay here - changed to Canyon Lodge

Changed to Canyon Lodge ( had to pay quite a bit more ) as didn't think 2.5 days at the Roadhouse would be fun ( pool cloudy and no other activities).

Canyon Lodge proved to be excellent in every way.

Pleasant place

It is a bit different with old vehicles littered around the place which is a bit wacky. The food was OK rather than good, but some very nice aloes in the garden and we saw a lovely sunset sitting out on the terrace. We needed our 4WD the next day as there was heavy rain and a stream turned into a biggish river coming back from the Canyon.

We had lunch at another lodge nearby which we preferred.

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.
