I would agree it is a most beautiful setting, but we did not enjoy our stay one bit. In fact we couldn't wait to get away. The staff are badly or not trained at all, they just seemed to hang about. Service was non-existent. The room did not have a hair dryer, shaver socket, or glasses in the bathroom. No... More

Great setting, lovely main area but a little tired. The views are fabulous, the food is good, the service is ok but no better. With just a bit more care it could be fabulous. Having said that it was perfect for our overnight stay before flying home.

We only stayed one night here but it was great. After being stuck at the airport dealing with lost luggage we didn't know if we would make dinner. Phoned and the staff said it would be no problem they would sort out something for us if we were late. Happily we made it and dinner was fantastic. Rooms are super... More

Outside WHK, on top a hill. Great views to WHK at night. Amazing views towards the mountains in morning. Rooms are solid, clean & fresh and quite large. Lovely stoep to sit and take in the bush. Traditional Namibian/African experience. Decent B/fast. Would always go back again

We stayed here on the first and last nights of our trip. It is very handy from the airport, is only ten mins from a great shopping mall, and is a very pleasant place to stay. The staff were very friendly and attentive, the food was lovely. Nice decking area to sit and watch the sun go down and have... More

We stayed in this hotel on our last night in Namibia. It is very conveniently located for the airport, but not so much for the city centre. We didn't attempt to, but I don't think you'd be able to walk. Also finding the entrance off the main road can be a bit tricky, so drive slowly as you approach. The... More

Visited this lodge on a business trip for a couple of days, very beautiful setting. Staff need a bit more extra training, made quite a few mistakes with orders for the group. TV's in room only have three channels, one local and one international news channel. Lodge have great potential to be great.

Service is friendly, relaxed and efficient - very easy to feel "at home". Happy to make it my "gateway" on future trips. Just a word of advice - easy to... More

On a recent trip to Namibia we spent two nights at River Crossing which is just outside of Windhoek center. Quite a rough road to the hotel which is in a game park so all part of the experience. Chalet was comfortable and had a modern bathroom which had good quality soaps etc. Supper that night was excellent and service... More
