“Very good hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 September 2013

We spent one night at this hotel before our flight back to Europe.

We had a nice bungalow with a terrace, a double bed and a single bed (the single bed was under the roof), cooking facilities and a bathroom with shower.

We did not need more!!! We could cook a light dinner and enjoy it on the terrace.

The staff (we only met one lady, I forgot her name....) was very kind and helpful.

Of course if you expect a 5 star hotel you will be disappointed, but this is a lodge (and that is what you pay for), so I honestly do not understand some of the negative comments I have read about this place.

I would surely go there again.

Room Tip: I only saw our room... so cannot judge.... but from the look and size of the bungalows they all seem...

My husband and I stayed in one of the chalets, which had two units under the one roof. It was very clean and had lots of atmosphere - slate floors, good bathroom, two single beds, a spare bed in the loft, a large deck overlooking acres of beautiful bush, populated with blesbok and gemsbok and was very peaceful. The food, prepared by the entertaining cook, Sarki, was very good, both dinner and breakfast. Breakfast was included in the tariff. The restaurant also had a lot of atmosphere and was a very short walk from the chalet . There were facilities for self catering by arrangement.in the kitchenette and a braii was on the deck.
An agent had made our booking and there was some confusion re this but the agent had let us down in many areas on this trip. Sarki soon sorted this out. The couple in the adjoining unit were on a second visit and also enjoyed the accommodation.
We would certainly stay there again.

Room Tip: Any chalet would be pleasant as they all overlooked a great view and were well spread out.

I booked this property from the USA in 2012, based on the web description, airport location /photographs etc. Boy was I disappointed, let down, and embarrassed,especially as my brother and his wife were travelling with my husband and me.
When arrived we noticed the sign was literally falling apart, bad omen! When we pulled up to "reception" we were told we had one cottage for the 4 of us! Fortunately I had a print out of the reservation and we were ultimately provided with a cottage for each couple. I had paid in full for this stay at the time of booking. The cottages were fairly clean although the bathroom had a strange odor and was very dark and dank. In the morning we went to the "restaurant" for breakfast which I had been led to believe was included, turns out we had to pay and were overcharged for a very poor meal. When we returned a week later (reluctantly, but I had been told I couldn't cancel the second reservation, also paid in full), we were told we didn't have a reservation! Again thank goodness for print outs! So then we were told they had overbooked for a "large group", and we were moved across the road "upgraded". I don't usually write negative reviews, in fact this is my first one, but be warned, stay away from this property! The descriptions and photographs are not accurate!

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else!

Although the lodge is called Airport lodge it is 20 kilometers away from the international airport. At an additional fee we were picked up from the airport by the owners.
The cottages are very clean and it is a good place to start or end your vacation in Namibia.
The service was very good.

We booked a day-room at the Airport Lodge Namibia as our flight from Europe landed early in the morning and our connecting flight to Cape Town was in the evening. Luckily for us, as staying at Hosea Kutako Airport for 12 hours would have been a nightmare. The Lodge consists of a cluster of double-cottages, which are spacious and each have their own private terasse. We were happy to have a bed for the day, and the owners of the lodge arranged transport from and to the airport at an additional fee. Day rooms are not particularly cheap there, but it´s difficult to place a value on a bed and a shower when your option is an uncomfortable airport. The staff were very friendly, and we were able to buy drinks and hot lunch, even though we were the only guests, so that we arrived in Cape Town a little bit more refreshed. We would stay there again, but only for a day or an overnight, as there is not much to do at the lodge or in the area, other than relax.
