A very comfortable place. Our room, room 1 had a large en suite with a separate bath and shower and a bath with space for a glass of wine while you relaxed in the bath. Breakfast was fantastic with lots of choice continental and full English if you want as well. Staff very friendly and helpful with restaurant bookings

I stayed here with a group of friend before we started our tour of Namibia. We couldn't have made a better choice.

It's great value for money!!! I would defenitely go back

The room was very nice. Breakfast in the morning had plentiful items of all kinds, including for vegetarians. Swimming pool was good sized, although we didn't use it. Friendly and helpful staff. We would stay there again.

Very friendly helpful staff. Great choice at breakfast. Nice to eat outside too! We had the family apartment with kitchen facilities and childrens' beds in separate room from ours. The pool was icy cold, as is to be expected at this time of year! Obviously had to go in to prove to the kids I wasn't chicken. Free internet access... More

Great stay! Really friendly. The rooms were clean and breakfast was tasted great. The staff were helpful with the continuation of our journey suggesting advice on the best way to do things. Everything provided and even sent my laptop charger that I forgot back to Australia.

We started and ended our trip here. Warm welcome, nice rooms, quiet and very friendly stay. Home made carrot cake was delicious! They had answers to all our questions and gave enough information. Thank you!
