Very quirky, good for a look around and a drink before heading on. Rooms clean and spacious but very outdated and basic. Staff not very efficient and friendly, no manager in sight! Dinner not good but breakfast was okay. Sprinklers left on for hours! is there no water shortage in this area??

The lack of options helps this hotel a lot. The rooms were clean but yet again the staff were disinterested and the food was not great. The ambience is quirky and fun and the airconditioning works well, which is all you really need in January.

We totally loved the place. The old cars, decor, styling was really impressive. So diff from what u would expect at a lodge. If you have a flare for the old stuff or just interested in a blast from the past. This is a must do on the bucket list n u cant leave without a peek into pandoras box....

Canyon Roadhouse is more memorable for its unusual restaurant and great food than it's accommodation. Personally if we had known we would have stayed at Gondwana's other two lodges closer to the Fish River Canyon, Canyon Village and Canyon Lodge. The rooms are adequate, the staff are very accommodating and helpful.

Place is really beautiful. Service at restaurant was not too friendly in the evening, but much better in the morning. Nuts were rancid in pudding and berries were off too . Otherwise food was great! Nice to be able to choose a la carte menu. Awesome to see the Oryx on the lawn !

Very nice and refreshing budget stop for visiting the nearby Fish River Canyon. Very interesting interior, great vibe and cold beer. The pool was a great cooldown after a hot Namibian summers day. Great for a 1 nighter or a delicious lunch stop.

Staff was friendly and helpful. Room was very basic (something I like about all the Gondwana places we stay was that there was no TV), but clean. Breakfast here was very good.

While doing a roadtrip through Namibia , we stayed over at the Canyon Roadhouse on out way back to South Africa. What a special place, it is a feast for the eyes from the outside as you arrive, as well as the restaurant inside and curio area. The rooms are basic, but neat and sufficient. Back in the day, this...
