The guesthouse is conveniently located just off the main road to the airport. I stayed at Maison Ambre for several days following a lengthy desert trip. My hosts and their staff were extremely helpful in many ways... Indeed I found the stay very restful (which is what I needed at the time). There are a few restaurants and shops a... More

We stayed here one night when passing through Windhoek. Room was clean and reasonable size. In room fridge meant we could do our big food shop for the trip in Grove Mall in the south of the city (new large mall with supermarkets, wine store and pretty much everything else you can think of) and put the cold stuff in...

We spent one night here and Beate was wonderful. All queries prior to my trip were answered almost immediately. The room was clean and bright and there was a nice variety at breakfast. Another plus was Heila's Shuttle Services referred by Beate. Heila was happy to collect and drop us off whenever we needed her to at a reasonable cost.... More

We stayed here for the first and last nights of our holiday. The Guesthouse is in a quiet residential area away from the centre of Windhoek and we had Room 5 on both occasions. The room was average size but not very bright - only a glass sliding door opening on to a passage way. The bed was OK but... More

We stayed here on our first night in Namibië and the warm welcome by Poppey was very nice! We had a relaxing afternoon at the pool and the rooms were just perfect! Willy and Andrea made a perfect breakfast and are excellent hosts. We are happy to go back again, as we will go back on they day we leave... More

We stayed here at the beginning and end of our trip to Namibia. Both rooms were beautifully equipped and we were very comfortable. It's set in a quiet street and not far from lovely restaurants that were recommended to us by the owners who were delightful and very welcoming. A breakfast pack was even made up for us as we...

My boyfriend and I stayed here at the start and end of our trip in Namibia and on both occasions we enjoyed our stay. Our room was spacious with a large shower room and very clean.

This charming little B&B in Windhoek offers excellent value for money accommodation. The rooms are spacious with all necessary amenities. It's situated at the end of a cul de sac street and it's very quiet. I can highly recommend this B&B!!

The rooms here were rather pokey and dark. There were no staff on duty when we arrived to advise us of facilities, where to eat etc. The room was actually quite comfortable but there was no space for washbags etc in the bathroom because there were so many ornamental objects. Because of this cleaning was less than satisfactory. However the... More
