The best springbok I ate so far, very well cooked. The wine recommendation also superb, congratulations to the sommelier. And the waiters and waitresses all very attentive and professional. A place worth dining in Windhoek!!

If you stay here, you will be overlooking the city of Windhoek, in three directions. Beautiful lights at night, scenic panaroma during the day. You will always be greeted by pleasant, polite staff, whether at reception or in the dining room. Our room was spacious and comfortable, with a side room with French doors opening out on to the pool.... More

We started our tour of Namibia in this beautiful hotel. We had a long flight from the UK and it was very pleasant to arrive and be brought a glass of sparkling wine as we unpacked. The room was lovely with plenty of space and it had everything we needed. The restaurant is a beautiful elegant room with views out... More

Even though the setting, for Windhoek standards, is rather picturesque: on top of a hill in the upmarket part of town, the restaurant in this establishment offered our group service so lousy it was ripe for a comedy. A couple at a table next to us ended up paying and leaving as their sandwiches came out, because they simply couldn't... More

Excellent accomodation on the top of a hill, thus a very beautiful panoramic view on the city. Staff extremely friendly and efficient. Food is excellent (gastronomic level) at quite an affordable price. Excellent vine list. Rooms are extremly nice and very well equipped, but be aware, only a couple of them do have view, most have none.

The Heinitzburg is not terrible, and probably deserves its reputation as the best hotel in Windhoek. However, don't be fooled by the Relais & Chateaux affiliation - if you are looking for an R&S experience (or even an average five-star hotel), you'll be disappointed. Save your money and stay at one of the new boutique hotels (the Olive, Villa Verdi,... More

In May I drove from Angola to Mozambique and stayed in this great hotel with a fantastic view over the city. Although I had not made a prior booking the hotel staff and Manager were very welcoming and helpful in accommodating me for one night. The hotel is quiet and very relaxing. The hotel chef cooked me a fantastic meal... More

Such a beautiful and unique building in an outstanding location. Rooms were beautifully appointed. Quiet and out of the way locale. Staff were friendly and helpful. Somewhat removed from downtown if you're a walker, and the hotel is at the top of a hill. However, very short taxi journey.

The rooms here are clean and decorated to a very high standard. I especially enjoyed visiting the restaurant and trying the tasting menu on offer... I wanted the same thing two days in a row! However we did experience a few small problems. The hotel advertises wireless access from the rooms... But actually we had to sit outside the reception... More
