Good location with easy access to downtown Windhoek on the main road in from the airport, rooms comfortable without being luxurious, breakfasts very good,; outstanding feature was the warm-hearted welcome from the staff.

My wife and I spent three nights at Maison Ambre. The hosts are wonderful, we had a great welcome. The grounds are beautiful, the rooms are clean, and the breakfast was great (with some amazing french cheese). On our last day, I had to leave super early to catch a flight, and I was provided with a pack breakfast! I... More

We stayed with Beate last year for 6 nights and there was no hesitation or discussion where to stay when we planned our trip to Windhoek this year. We stayed 5 nights this time and enjoyed it as much as before. The staff is extremely friendly, helpful, accommodating and attentative. Even though we stay in the self-catering unit, which is...

Margaret and Otto are the hosts you dream of... We really felt like being with our own familly. We were facing various difficult problems and they showed... love. They are smart, interesting, good and happy ! Thank you for your warm welcome. We hope we meet again. We love you and will not forget your help.

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
