“Good choice, nice food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2014

We ate dinner and breakfast here for our two night stay and the food was really good. There was lots of variety to choose from and the meals were different each time.

“Lunch not good ”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2014 via mobile

Unless you come in sort of prearranged group, the treatment is a bit poor. Ignored by staff, 4 dishes in the menu and overpriced.

“Disappointing Rooms - Bad Bad Food/Service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2013

The only thing good about this place is the surrounding red mountains. Rest is downhill. We came here from Doro! Nawas and found the rooms to be extremely disappointing.
The rooms are worse than 1 star hotels. The hot water did not work in our first room and so we were given another one. The reception folks were quick in giving us a new room , but the person who helped us took the key to our new room with him , so we had to wait for him to come back before we could make any plans.

The lunch is a huge disappointment. We went there at 12.30 and the server looked at us with a huge sigh !! "God , why did you come". She did not help us with anything and was extremely bored and sleepy. The rest of the servers were having a good stare at us :D

We ordered two chicken burgers and they tasted horrendous. When we asked for ketchup , the server gave it to us in a broken bowl with a huge 1 inch chip/part missing :D
Really ! How can anybody miss that. ?

The bar is okay and dinner at 240$ per person is not worth it.

People at the reception and store were nice , so the one star else I would have given 0.

You have to park your car far away and work with your luggage. This is not safe ! . While we were checking out , hotel help automatically cleaned our windows and screen. I would not prefer people to touch my things without me asking them. At another instance , when we were checking our tire pressure in the parking lot, this hotel help came close to us and touched the nozzle causing the air pressure to lower for a good 20 secs. What a terrible , forced attempt to help ! We had to go to the workshop to get some air. Spend another 30 mins !!

Pick another place close by and visit Twyfelfontein attractions and save your money ! Don't stay here !

“mixed opinions”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

we stayed at Twijfelfontein lodge for 2 nights. Lovely views, we had a nice nature drive and met the desert adapted elephants. The service is good, kitchen is also nice... but we didn't like to see the management sitting at the bar and being drunk. This was a very bad sight, even it was a sunday afternoon, go and have your drinks and getting drunk somewhere else, but not in front of your clients in a public bar.

“Good buffet”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2012

Good dinner buffet, but lunch is too expensive for what it offers.
Breakfast is good and with a nice view to the valley
