So don't expect to get a luxury room or a four star restaurant (Although the food was much better than in many other places we have...

Safe parking provided for motorcycle. Management showed concern. Waiters service 5 star and last but not least ... compliments to the chef! Lovely menu. Definitely going back😉

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.

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
