“Great place to stay on the way to/from Etosha”
Reviewed 21 October 2013

Really nice place with safe parking, comfortable rooms and a very pleasant small pool and poolside area. We visited Waterberg from here as a day trip which was really worthwhile and no problem in a day on decent roads. Breakfast average but that goes for Namibia as a whole. A few qualms with air con and toilet flush but staff did try to resolve.

Dear Mark:

Thank you for your good review. We have since replaced the entire system in the bathroom as it just would not come right. Now it is entirely new.

We are always trying to maintain the best possible arrangement for our guests and we appreciate good reviews like this one tremendously.

Regards

My husband and I found Bush Pillow to be an ideal stopover on our way back south from Etosha. The room was spacious, very well equipped with a comfy bed and the meal was excellent. Neville gave us very helpful advice on the best route to take to Sossusvlei in our 2WD.

We enjoyed our stay at Bush Pillow Guest House tremendously. The room was well decorated, well cleaned and well supplied. The best "feature" was the helpfulness and friendliness of our hosts, Reinet and Neville. Recommendations were given, questions were answered and directions were given.
Also, be sure to eat at least one dinner at Bush Pillow. You will be most satisfied with the meal prepared by Reinet. We ate there two nights and were very pleased with the dinners, which were most delicious. In fact, I mentioned to Reinet that she should give cooking classes!
We highly recommend Bush Pillow Guest House.

Dear Michael:

It was a pleasure to have you at Bush Pillow. Thanks for the great recommendation - we always appreciate it very much. I must say Reinet is an excellent sjef and her recipes - be it a simple Boboti or a delicate Game Pie - all of them are just taste sensations.

We are happy to have heard that you also enjoyed the rest of your trip!

On our way from Windhoek going North, this was a very nice one night stop. The rooms were clean and nicely furnished. The staff was very helpful and friendly and we had a good nights sleep and a nice breakfast before hitting the road again. Highly recommended!!

We staid at the bushpillow on our way from Windhoek to Etosha. The place is caringly set and the owners are a very friendly couple. You can ask for a nice place for dinner and they know everything about Etosha. Breakfast has a wide variety of food, rooms are well kept.

We enjoyed our stay at Bushpillow and it was a great location for our trips to the dinosaur footprints, the Cheeta Conservation Fund and several more places. Our hosts were very informative about things to do in the area.
