“Good for golf and perhaps dinner”
Reviewed June 20, 2012

I have made two nice experiences at the Country Club. The first was a buffet dinner with about 20 other guests at a long table at their restaurant. The food was absolutely ok for a buffet. Some of it is freshly prepared in front of you, including a selection of meats and sea food. The service is attentive and very friendly.
The second, even nicer experience, was a round on the golf course. Very well maintained, interesting layout, a pleasure to play.
I would never book a room there, though. It iis too far out of town, so I can not comment on this part of the resort...

Stayed in this hotel for five days and it is very nice, comfortable, clean and modern rooms, excellent breakfast buffets, large flat screens in the hotel, friendly and accommodating staff, and free WiFi. The gym was also nice, the grounds are large and beautiful, and the beds are very comfortable.

The negatives on this hotel - limited TV channels, very far from town (no problem for us since we were managing a conference at the hotel), staff left all of the doors of the hotel open at night (winter time now in Namibia) and left all of the rooms cold, air cons/heaters did not really work, WiFi passwords expired every 6 hours, so had to get new ones.

All in all, a good hotel but if you are looking to stay closer to town there are better options.

The Hotel was an older premises that requires maintenance. The Hotel has a dark & dingy casino that is great if you like casinos that smell like a stale ashtray, the smoke in the casino was like an indoor fog. The Club had a great little golf course but the Golf staff don't really want anyone else on the course but their members.
A good place to stay for 1 night before leaving.

The design and concept of the hotel is very quaint. The rooms are very comforatble, clean and spacious. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful at all times. The buffet breakfast was absolutely scrumptious. There was such a big variety, the kids had a blast. The hotel offers you some entertainment with the casino.
Our overall experience and stay at this hotel was very good anxc will recommend it anytime.

Room Tip: Ground floor is the best. Easy access to the pool area and restaurant.

Flying in on Business Was booked into a beautiful hotel Lobby very nice and African. Staff very helpful and friendly. The room I had was nice well made up with all it should have internet TV fridge etc office type desk & nice bed. Bathroom was well appointed but showing signs of age/used & could do with a little TLC. The Golf course(not used) was a stones through out the back & looked superb with a driving range as well. The pool also set in nice gardens and spaced out tables chairs sun beds etc. The pool bar very cleaver design back to the Stone age great place to have a drink with a water channel attached to the pool & fountain. The main restaurant & eating area down stairs looked & was very nice buffet & or menu, with outside two water features which take some beating & took the show, nice if your in a romantic mood (Not for me this time!). Bit of a hike 30 mins or so from airport but well worth the trip. Will go again if in Windhoek again nice taxi ride organised by the hotel both ways slightly pricey for Africa but again well worth if you don't know your way there or around and as such very safe for me anyway.

Room Tip: Ask for a garden view but most looked good anyway with a balcony nice quite

This hotel is all facade and no substance. Staff are all well versed in side stepping should a request for anything extra, such as a toilet roll, be required. Calls to housekeeping go unanswered, or the receiver is picked up and replaced to disconnect the call! Going through reception with a request yields no results either. Beds are uncomfortable, towels supplied were threadbare. Bathrooms are gloss painted on the walls and floors, providing near impossible navigation when water escapes from the leaking shower door. Everything in the bathroom/s looks moldy and stained! Extractor fans in bathrooms no longer work. We booked two rooms on this visit and they were both in poor condition. Buffet dinner was mediocre, with poorly trained staff in attendance, both behind the buffet counters and on the tables. It took three attempts to get a round of drinks in the dining room, when one consisted of nothing more than a soft drink! If the establishment had been running at full capacity, one can expect delays, but the hotel was not busy. This hotel has the potential to be something amazing, but is neglected and poorly run. Staff, in every department, tend to give the impression that guests are an inconvenience. It should not have the star rating given and the room rates are ridiculously high for what is offered in terms of accommodation and service.

Room Tip: Choose another hotel!

Staff were generally friendly, however, became very unhelpful and bitter towards people with special needs. When asked for a softer pillow, as one suffered with an incredibly bad neck, the women at reception refused and said that she could not supply such. If this hotel is 4 stars, can they not provide a decent pillow? Decor of rooms and bathroom is incredibly bland and offers very little to the imagination. Very bad shower and the bathroom set up needs to be rethought. Dining room food is definitely not up to scratch and requires a lot more work, as the food was bland and rather overpriced for what you actually get. I suggest a different hotel, as this hotels ratings does not match its substance.
