Nice stay Loretta van Eeden, South Africa

Clean and comfortable accommodation. All you can ask for after a dusty, hot trip through Namibia. Super friendly hostess, very well-equipped kitchen which really was like home-away-from-home and a good breakfast the next morning before tackling the heat again! The farmyard is full of quirky treasures - we loved it.

This place was gorgeous. Felt so comfortable and slept so well. The best was the little attached coffee shop with the yummy coffee and baked goods!

It was a real tonic after the long drive from Swakopmund. Green grass and birds in the trees gave us strength for the long drive next day. Hostess was helpful and friendly. Our room was comfortable and had everything we needed. The communal kitchen was so well set up that we wished were staying longer just to make use of it.
Overall excellent standard! Cobus Ackermann, South Africa

Everything that we found and experieced at Bastion was on a good standard. From the friendly reception, well decorated and neat rooms and bathrooms, dinner and breakfast was a pleasurable experience. The breakfast was probably the highlight of our stay, although there was absolutely nothing lacking with the accommodation, etc. Bastion has a great atmosphere, with well though interesting decorations inside and outside.

This was our second stay at bastion in 3 years and the standard has not faltered at all. Spotlessly clean. Very well equipped. Will go back every time we are en route to North Namibia.

We had an excellent time at Bastion. The directions to get there was easy to follow. Beautiful and obviously well managed farm with lovely guest facilities. Free Wi-Fi very welcome bonus. 10/10 for Bastion!
A very interesting stay Mike Smith, South Africa

Unfortunately when we arrived there was no one to meet us and as we did not have a Namibian cell phone we were unable to contact the manager who apparently lived about 25 kms away.
The place is very neat and has many interesting decor items. The manager, when we met her, was very pleasant and helpful.

An overnight stay on the way from Waterberg to Mata-Mata after a long trip was just what we needed. Warm, friendly reception, excellent facilities and freedom from uneccesary interference made the short stay a memorable experience. Thanks to Anya, Simone and Deon for their hospitality - a strong recommendation to all travelling in this area. Baie dankie.

Bastion Farmyard B&B is just the place you want to lay your head of a long drive in the heat of Namibia. The management and staff were absolutely delightful, helpful and welcoming. With air-conditioning, wifi, hot showers (or bath), comfortable bed, well-equipped rooms, ice-cold refreshments and a wonderful breakfast, Bastion is hard to beat. Would absolutely recommend it.

We had a brief and comfortable stay at Bastian's: lovely comfortable rooms, wi-fi, delicious full breakfast and lovely garden. Small coffee shop with homemade biscuits and jam for sale - which we took advantage of!
Recommended to anyone travelling up to or from Windhoek.

A gem just outside Mariental: excellent facilities and well equiped kitchen and braai area. We preferred to self-cater and found everything we needed in the kitchen. Thank you for the hospitality.

Bastion Farmyard was van die beste! Alles was baie keurig en stylvol. Dit was n groot bederf om na n hele paar dae in die "bos" in absolute weelde te kon oornag. Die werf met outydse geroeste items, die werf glad gehark, die slaapkamers prentjiemooi versier, die heerlike ontbyt en die winkel vol oulike goedjies was beslis n besoek werd. Ons doen weer aan as ons in die omgewing kom!

Excellent setting with very well equipped room and amenities. Kitchen well equiped. Hosts Salome and Deon and assistant Anja went out of their way to let us feel comfortable and enjoy our stay. This is one of the best B&B's visited during our recent visit to Namibia. We truly wish we could stay another night - sitting on the stoep having a sundowner with dusk setting in was a wonderful experience. We highly recommend Bastion near Mariental to anyone en route to Windhoek or visiting Namibia.

We were unfortunate to be there at the same time as a group of fishermen who were partying till midnight.....hence a very bad night. The host very welcoming and we would stay there again without the noisy guests.

We loved the whole place. It is so well set out with quirky wall decorations on the outside, great old farm implements, lovely plants and trees in attractive gravel settings - a great deal of work has gone into making the farmyard attractive. Inside the room was comfortable and the comunal kitchen well equipped.

This was one of the best places I have ever stayed at! It was so much more than what was expected and we were pleasantly surprised to find absolutely everything we needed right there! The rooms were lovely, clean and comfortable, the surrounding area clean and neat with lots of quirky, interesting things to find all over the yard. As it was very cold we were pleased to find an indoor braai in the kitchen and we had an interesting evening chatting to the other guests as the kitchen is shared by all staying there. Our breakfast was excellent, served by Salome herself and her husband. I can recommend Bastion to anybody travelling in Namibia. It is luxury accommodation at a very affordable price!

A beautiful little oasis! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and were made to feel very welcome. The rooms are beautifully decorated and everything has been thought of for a weary traveller. We utilized the indoor braai on a very cold night and had a lovely cosy evening next to the fire. Most enjoyable!

The Bastion was quaint, charming and a delightful place to stay. Our hostess was also superb with that wonderful country hospitality that is lacking in the city. An absolute pleasure!
