I have read many positive reviews by other visitors, but I however and unfortunate cannot agree. There are so many flaws that I really find it hard to say something positive, but I will do my best. When arriving we were greeted by a friendly young lady. She showed us to the sitting area in the main house, which was...

The lovely old house stood in the grounds of well maintained gardens with delightful views. We stayed in the Manor house and enjoyed the large en suite bedrooms with comfortable beds.Everywhere was spotlessly clean and all the staff were very friendly. However there were large garish paintings throughout which I felt were not in keeping with the dignified surroundings.

For privacy, peace and tranquillity, the Mountain Suites at Naries are hard to beat. Perched on a ridge about a kilometer from the main house, the quirky thatched design imaginatively incorporates natural hillside boulders. Well furnished with bar fridge and coffee/tea making facilities, even a complimentary carafe of sherry. Marvellous view from the deck, especially at sunset; on clear nights...

Naries is situated in a gorgeous location, we stayed in the the suites, which had amazing views and were totally thatched from ceiling to floor level with balconies overlooking the desert. The suites were huge but had a small double bed in, which was a shame. It was our most expensive stay on our trip and the only place where...

Booked two mountain suites - one for our daughter and one for hubby and me. These have got to be the most unique wonderful places we have stayed!!! The sunsets in the evening from the units are magical, as is the pure silence and wonder of the estate. We were a little early for the wildflowers (sadly) - but so...

Excellent staff , very comfortable rooms and superb food ! The view from their lapa must be the best sun down in the region ! The flowers and vegetation on this farm was beautiful! Naries is a very central to travel to i.e. Nababeep , Okiep and Springbok .
