Reviews for Desert Rose Guest House
"Good value. We enjoyed everything about our stay. Our room was clean, fresh and spacious. The view of town and mountain fascinated us after the hundreds of kilometers we had recently traveled. We appreciated having off-road undercover parking. The room was well equipped with DSTV and hospitality gifts. We were able to use the facilities in the dining room to prepare our evening meal as we did not book self-catering. The breakfast was generous and delicious."

"Comfortable stay. Desert Rose proved to be well-located for exploring Namaqua and the hostess was very helpful with pointers to see the best flowers. The breakfasts were delicious and different every morning. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. There was even local filter coffee in the room to enjoy in the evening after a long day! Could I ask for more for this price?"

"Feels like home. I visited the guesthouse in September 2017. The one thing really making this place special are the owners. People that easily could've been your parents really go out of their way to make you feel at home. I would definitely recommend this stunning place to stay at."

Mack, September 2017
"A great location and very comfortable. We stayed 2 nights at this lovely guesthouse. The rooms were very comfortable and well-equipped.
Breakfast was plentiful and very tasty. Maralynn made a special effort as it was my birthday, making birthday 'quiches' that looked like little fruitcakes. What a lovely gesture.
When our hire-vehicle gave trouble the next day, Pieter assisted by taking us down to the Toyota garage for 'accelerated' assistance. Thanks Pieter - without your help we would have been stuck. We will come again."

"Convenient and comfortable. An ideal stop over when traveling or as a base for "doing the West Coast" thing. Helpful and friendly owners made us welcome and accommodated our specific requirements. Safe parking was right outside our room which made life easy. Plenty of eateries nearby. Well equipped room made self-catering simple."
