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

I visited this guesthouse in September 2016. The one think 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.In a unfriendly town like Springbok, I would definitely recommend this stunning place to stay at.

Desert Rose proved to be well-located for exploring Namaqualand 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...

We enjoyed everything about our stay. Our room was clean, fresh and spacious. The view of the 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 a tv and hospitality gifts and we were able to use the facilities in the dining...

My husband and I were booked in Desert Rose 19/20 September. The tourism board seriously needs to send an inspector there, as their 4 star rating is farcical. The room had a very bad oder, linen dirty and the bed was lumpy - sub standard. Owners were not interested.

Marks in shower,not mildew but the grout is a very thin layer and cement coming through.The beds are 6 months old only had compliments. The story about dirty linen is absurd ,we wash everything daily and for long stayers every third day.The red carpet has a few dots on it we admit but the big spots is from the dye....

Desert Rose Guest house is a home away from home. The owners are welcoming and very warm and as I result I always insist to be booked on this BnB when traveling to Springbok. Their breakfast is superb and it is in keeping with what one expects when traveling to the Karoo (Great South African farmstyle cooking) . Just behind...

Nice rooms in the "suburbs" of Springbok. There is so much to do in the Northern Cape so if you do hang around your hotel all day then you are missing out. But for the time that you are indoors, Desert Rose is perfect. Beds are comfortable, utilities all work and most importantly the showers are hot with a good...
