  • Description
  • Facilities
Known as the very first hotel to be built in Namibia, Bethanie Guesthouse is situated at the center of all the tourist attractions in the south, like the breathtaking Fish River Canyon, the rocky shores of Luderitz, and Sossusvlei with its unforgettable sand dunes.

The guest house was originally built before 1880 and is therefore one of the oldest in Namibia. Bethanie is a small town with a rich historical background against the backdrop of beautiful mountains, breathtaking sunsets and starlit skies at night.

We offer fully furnished, en-suite rooms, seven of which are air-conditioned. Meals are enjoyed outside at the lapa restaurant area, with a bar where we serve home-cooked meals and open-fire dishes. There is a superb swimming pool available to guests if they feel the need to cool off. The guest house also has a tea/beer garden with a well-stocked bar and DStv.

Along with the many scenic trips one can make in the area, there are some more activities available such as quad biking, hiking, horse riding, 4x4-ing, and birdwatching.

15 Reviews on Bethanie Guesthouse & Beer Garden

The location suited us and, with a tarmac road all the way from the main B road it was easy to get to. The hosts were very friendly, the room clean & spacious and the pool area lovely. We had a really great evening meal and breakfast was good, too. I guess the only thing some might not favour is a lack of air-con. It wasn't that hot anyway, despite the heat of the day and ceiling fan was more than sufficient.

A beautiful place to stay on our way back to South Africa. Very nice staff and very clean accommodation.

They don't call it the budget room for nothing. Bed is on concrete, carpets in the bathroom, broken doors etc. it's not a place you want to spend on holiday. Rather upgrade your room or use the camping facilities. Otherwise place is great!

Lodge very well situated between the desert and canyon. The owners are kind. The room very comfortable and calm. Dinner was good.

Bethanie was a convenient stop heading back south after Sossusvlei. The grounds were very pleasant and the rooms comfortable. The only complaint was that as the only guests in this somewhat large guesthouse on that particular night, we did not always feel comfortable as the owners extended family including three young children took over the fireplace area before AND after dinner. It sometimes felt as if we were intruders in their family home. Also dinner was a set menu that we were given no choice in, simply served a plate and told it was their "traditional food". This was a problem for my somewhat picky husband. Breakfast however was substantial with lots of choice. If you are to stay here I would recommend a busier time of year when you might not feel so out of place with the family hanging about. They tell me June and July are their busy times.
