“Best Hotel in Windhoek”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

Prices are 5-stars, staff is really well-trained , the rooms are beautifully furnished with a touch of africa combined with european demands - so nice. as well as the bathrooms.
the restaurant strikes with its unusually chairs , and besides that, the tables are set as in any other good restaurant, good wine list, food extra-ordinare on the menu but on the plate so -la-la... especially if it comes to fish...
the hotel is surrounded by a beautiful garden and a very blue swimming pool, all clean, nice sunbeds, fluffy towels - you get spoilt here!

“Lovely place for sundowners”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2013

one of the best views in Windhoek so excellent place for sundowners, or afternoon cake for a treat if it is winter time. The restaurant is meant to be fine dining but we were not that impressed one time we ate there several years ago...

“My favourite place to have a sundowner in Windhoek and my five year old's favourite place to play "knights"...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 18, 2012

This hotel is an old castle,located on the Heinitzberg Hill and has the best views of Windhoek. The terrace has a "snacks+cakes+drinks" menu from morning till sunset. I have eaten almost once a week at the Terrace restaurant and it is undoubtly the best place to have a cake, coffee, a snack with the magnificient views of Windhoek. The staff are very friendly, the service excellent and they go the extra mile to make you happy. We asked if we could order "croissants" which are not on the menu for our one year old daughter and they made freshly baked croissants charging 20 N$ which (2 Euro/2.5 US$) which was not bad for five star quality. A cake costs around 40 N$ and snack meals under 100 N$. There is a "knights room" inside for breakfast which guests can ask to have a meal or a drink by reservation. Our son loves it. The "Leo's restaurant" inside is more chique and we have not eaten there. For me definitely this is the best place to have a cake. Try the "apple strudel with vanilla icecream". It is a treat to remember!
