We only stayed one night after arriving at the airport just after lunch time. It is easy to find and loads of secure parking. The receptionist/manager was so helpful suggesting good places to park in Windhoek (lending us change as we did not have any at that point) while we went for a wander round, making reservations for Dinner (Joe’s of course!) organising a taxi nothing was too much trouble.

Breakfast was all fine with a continental range and a cooked option as well (which we decided we did not want). Free tea/coffee/hot chocolate was on offer all the time as was a small ‘honesty’ bar with soft drinks/beer and wine.

Free wireless internet was a bonus and our room was good for the one night with everything we needed, comfortable beds, TV, air con, large powerful shower. The small pool was an added bonus and very quiet as well.

They do a laundry service but as we had just arrived there was no need to use it.

Stayed here for 2 days but at start of trip and then at the end. All rooms are suppose to be the same, but first room we stayed in was allot smaller than the second, Television was old model hidden in the closet, second room had Big LCD tv, reception on both was very poor, first room had no veranda, second did? Breakfast is good but small portions.Overall impression is that some minor adjustments need to be made.

We were welcomed by the very pleasant and helpful staff and helped to our room. The rooms, which are grouped around a courtyard, are very nicely appointed with modern furniture with clean lines. Nothing frilly (thank goodness). The bathroom was very modern and excellent. Comfortable places to spend some time and an honesty bar for refreshments (tea and coffee are free). Very good buffet breakfast with eggs etc cooked to order. Small, surprisingly cool, pool. The only downside is the location, which is in an upscale suburb, and not within walking distance of anything. And, of course, it isn't safe to walk after dark anyway.

Stayed here for one night and it was ideal for this. It was clean and
there was a lovely garden to sit in. Parking was a bit tight.
Staff were helpful but was disappointed they couldn't provide a
packed lunch without a days notice which is difficult if you are only
overnighting. We had not been told that we would need to do this
And felt they could have been a bit more accommdating.

OK place for one night, but bathroom window right on courtyard, no privacy as we were in room closest to main entrance and other window right on road...but traffic light. Tight space for 2 people. Door hard to lock. Think you would be happier else where for longer stay or better if only one person for longer stay. Cute decor. Nice employees. Safe parking. TV, safe, internet, average breakfast.
