Room had two lights that did not work. More importantly,the room was not clean. The coach was obviously dirty not just dingy. Toilet and shower areas barely worked and made lots of noise while doing so. Room needed at least a coat of paint if not outright redecoration. Staff tried hard, but could not overcome the limitations of the room.

The premise was ok, although, it took a while until somebody opened the gate after we arrived late in the evening. The staff unfortunately, wasn't as welcoming as hoped for and the rooms felt very cold inside (so cold that we questioned whether or not to take a shower). Breakfast, however, was tasty and WIFI worked perfectly fine.

Nice little guest house, room was big and clean. The breakfast for very nice and extensive and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The front desk helped me book a daytrip and dinner which were both really good.

The place it's very quite and paceful. The staff professional and helpful. One small on cozy pool, and garden. Meals and drinks offered a good price. Great offers of tours. My room ( the small) was tidy and clean, facing the garden. Very recommended

Rivendell really is a little oasis in Windhoek. I stayed one night at the end of an overland tour of Namibia. Loved the beautifully styled rooms with absolutely gorgeous furniture and artworks. Breakfast was delicious. We placed our order the night before for eggs, bacon, fried tomatoes, alongside a selection of fruit, breads, spreads, and tea/coffee/juice. I also enjoyed chilling... More

We staied in Rivendell for one day/night just after our arrival in Namibia. From here you can easily walk to the town center where all the shops are. All the stuff was super friendly and we were able on one of the two rooms we had to do an early check-in, which was much appreciated, expecially for our young children.

Very pleasant guesthouse! Not far walking from the center. The staff is nice and helpfull. I liked the carrot cake they made. The opportunity to have breakfast and to use the kitchen makes this place pleasant. I have stayed there for more than three weeks and have seen four rooms. Most of the rooms are big enough. The road is... More

Staff it is very well trained, they have garage so you can park your rented car, many activities that you can hire there also. There is only one room, but that's not a big deal thinking that you are paying so little to stay in a very, very nice place.

We stayed at Rivendell before flying home. Great location for exploring Windhoek. Secure parking a bonus. We had 3 rooms which all had good facilities, beds and bedding. 2 were overlooking the pool and the other the car park. Mixture of self catering possibilities and self service. Lots of choice for breakfast which you can have or not. Staff all... More
