“Great Value for Money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2012

Great service, great breakfast and a really nice place to stay. Would recommend to anyone over a hotel. This was probably the best value accommodation in Namibia and it was a great start to our holiday.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2012

Very nicely appointed and well decorated guest house. Host went out of his way to make us comfortable. We were working and it was like working in own home.
We had dinner too, which although rather pricey, was delicious and saved us having to go out.
Not in the center of Windhoek, but not far from the centre.
Recommended.

Room Tip: Rooms facing into the courtyard are quieter.
