It's a lovely place but don't book the budget room

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!

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.

This is really good value for money!
Although this is one of the oldest Hotels in Namibia, it is nicely renovated while still retaining a homely atmosphere. Beds are good quality with linen, bathroom and room neat and clean. Food is excellent with copious portions served. Service from owners and staff were very good. We will certainly use this place again and I can recommend it to even the most discerning traveller.
Very nice stay

After a long drive from Windhoek we arrived at Bethanie to be greated by the owners and given the opportunity to choose our air conditioned room. We then proceeded into lovely garden/thatch area for an ice cold beer and a swim. The owners have lovingly restored the guesthouse which is warm and welcoming and if you enjoy antique furniture you will love browsing around the place. A very restful atmosphere and the food helpings are very generous and extremely tasty. The staff are full of smiles and nothing is too much trouble. This is a little gem not to be missed.
Good value for money

Good value for money for overnight stay - nothing else you can do.
A wonderful excuse to visit Bethanie

Bethanie Guesthouse and Beer Garden is a delightful place to stay. We arrived dusty and weary from a long, hot journey on the road and were met with smiles, an air-conditioned room and a cold beer. The food was excellent, the staff in the kitchen work hard to create delicious meals with a strong South African flavour. Our room was comfortable and clean. Highly recommended.
