We use this guest house in Springbok for our Senior Citizens on the Namaqualand trip. The guest house is situated in a nice area close to the business area & restaurants and our check-in was hassle free. The rooms are spacious and none of our guests had complaints. The breakfast was excellent and the bus & trailer had secure parking.... More

Nice accommodation which was well furnished and with plenty of space in the room. The breakfast in the morning was very good and the guest house is close to town and the local restaurants, although being a Sunday, the choice of open restaurants was severely limited.

A pleasant and adequate guest house. Over rated and over priced at 4 star. No toiletries in the shower, just a piece of soap. The shower rose was hanging by a thread and not adjustable. Not good. Breakfast adequate.

Our room was adequate, not luxurious. Breakfast was sufficient and the staff friendly. We ate dinner in the town. There is no bar but a fridge containing a few beers to be paid for by an honour system; it seems not to be re-stocked on a daily basis. This is a comfortable place to stop-over in Springbok.

Immaculately clean and quiet in a garden setting, overlooking Springbok and the surrounding mountains. Comfortable, air conditioned rooms with old world furniture that is comfortable, useful and in perfect condition instead of the flash and useless facilities in so many "designer" rooms that are fast becoming the norm. Great breakfast at individual tables served by attentive and friendly staff. An... More

We felt like VIP's staying at Maggie's beautiful house in town. The staff are very friendly and efficient. The breakfast was delicious and served in beautiful sunny breakfast rooms at the guesthouse. Maggie's eye for detail and quality places her guesthouse in a different league setting the bar very high!

The views are rather nice and the host , Maggie is very helpful. For restaurant reservations she wasn't very informative but we ended up the Tauren Steak Ranch which is acceptable. Rooms are spacious and clean , equipped with a flatscreen TV and a wifi router. Breakfast was a bit basic, some meat and cheese would have suited me more... More

After a long drive from Cape Town, we were pleased to reach Springbok. The Mountain View is aptly named and our room was clean, comfortable, with internet connectivity. Our arrival was managed in a friendly manner and the breakfast that we had was ample for the next stage of our drive into Namibia. The guest house does not provide dinner... More
