The place have mediocre rooms and the whole farm is a bit decadent. The food is really poor and we went to bed hungry after the same salad for lunch and dinner. The food was included and felt "cheap", nothing special and the chef have no idea what cooking could be like(boring/dull ingredients/tasteless). When telling the management about the food... More

We wanted to spoil ourself with a luxury weekend getaway. But we did not get that. I belive that this place is heavily overpriced. The room was very nice and clean, but it was not elegant nor luxurious. It was very simple and the bathroom didnt have a door. The facilities were nice, but the place got a bit cramped... More

We stayed here for a weekend in February 2015. Beautiful little place. We spent the weekend sleeping, relaxing next to the pool, chatting under the stars around the fire pit......catching up on much needed QT. Farm like atmosphere with modern finishings. The staff were impeccable, the manager made us feel so welcome and special through out our stay. The food... More

We stayed one night in the The Elegant Farmstead on our way back to Windhoek and it is the perfect place if you’re looking for a play where to stay when leaving Etosha and heading to Windhoek. The lodge is located around 25 minutes away from the B1 road by car (can be faster/longer depending on how you drive as... More

I had the fortunate opportunity to spend 3 nights at the Elegant Farmstead. It was amazing. The staff are all very friendly and you are made to feel at home from the minute you check in. The food is amazing and really delicious, I am going to miss the home baked bread. The swimming pool is stunning and I had... More

Having reached the last night of a fantastic trip, we were a little sad to check in to the Elegant Farmstead. It was pouring with rain but we received a very warm, cheerful welcome. Our room was comfortable and charmingly furnished. It was a little odd not having a bathroom door, but caused us no concern. The fruit on the... More

My comments are similar to others. Really pleasant facility with some really thoughtful decorative touches. Food was excellent and the staff really attentive and helpful. We did the well signposted walking trail and the sundowner trip. The tea and cake in the afternoon was good and most welcome. Rooms were spacious and spotless.

The Elegant Farmstead is the sister hotel of The Elegant Guesthouse (Windhoek) but is very different in character. Okahandja is approx. 135 km from Windhoek Airport and is in a beautiful tranquil setting. We stayed on a half-board basis and both the choice and quality of the menu were exceptional. The whole facility is spotlessly clean, with smiling, friendly staff... More

What a delightful surprise - the essence of hospitality! It was already late when we left Windhoek, having had a delayed flight, a few issues with the rental car and a fair bit of traffic heading out of town. The last 27kms on the dirt road to the Farmstead were rather bumpy - but we did spot a honey badger!... More
