Safe, clean, helpful & friendly staff and owners. Good breakfast, and a modern kitchen area that can be be used by guests. Well thought out guest facilities with sunning area chairs and nice pool. A short walk to town, and the Pick and Pay supermarket located in an upscale shopping mall.

We stayed here for our first night in Namibia. It's quiet and secluded and we had a spacious room, which opened onto the patio by the pool. The room was equipped with everything we needed, breakfast was good and the staff were warm and friendly. I liked the honesty bar. The two fridges were well stocked and items were fairly... More

We stayed a total of 3 nights at the Rivendell while between tours and flights. It's a lovely place to stay with a very friendly staff and the room was spotless. Breakfast was delicious as well. The fan in our room was very noisy the first night, but when we complained it was promptly replace by a very good floor... More

My wife and I have stayed at Rivendell many times for work. Most of these stays have been extended stays for a few weeks. The grounds are lovely and the staff are very polite, courteous and always available to help if need be. I particularly like that there is a kitchen that guests can use to cook dinner and recently...

Stayed here for one night in mid-December. The grounds were neat and tidy and the room was big and clean. The bathroom had recently been renovated and was excellent. Plus there was a lovely small cat named Frodo and a huge Mastiff named Tess who loved having her belly rubbed! The drawback for us was that the bed was a... More

We stayed here for three nights on our stop in Windhoek. Nice, big and modern room with a good ensuite bathroom, friendly staff. On a good location in Windhoek, on walking distance from the towncenter. Save carpark. The only drawback was that the wifi internet was not working, especially when you want to make further arrangements for your trip.

A group of 5 of us stayed here on our first night in Namibia. The guest house is a really decent b&b. The rooms are large and clean. It has it's own communal kitchen, which rather reminded me of my backpacker days. The owner / manager was really helpful and knowledgeable. She gave us so much advise for our trip.... More

Place very clean and offer more than expected. Area also reasonable quite no loud noises during the night in-spite of it being Saturday night. Will use the place again in the future. Save parking inside easy entrance.

Nice room and good breakfast, with all guests around the table. Friendly people. Drinks available for a good price. Walking distance to the city centre, but not really close. We stayed just one night on the start of our holiday. There was even a Dutch channel on the TV.
