“All you need”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

I use this lodge as it is pleasant clean and near to EROS airport. The Pub and restaurant is all one needs and the rooms are more than sufficient with all the goodies a traveler needs. I will support this lodge in the future as it is convenient with various type of accommodation.
have not been in the summer but must be nice around the pool.

Room Tip: ask for the inner circle rooms

I stayed here one night as part of a Nomad trip. Most of our accommodation has been good so far on this journey, and Arebbush was no exception

The room was spacious and spotless, so was the bathroom with both shower and bathtub. Linen and towels were fresh, there was a hair dryer, safe and free wifi.

The lodge is situated a bit out of the town centre. That is no problem for one night only, but if you are in the Namibian capital for longer, a hotel in the centre might be more convenient.

This is a return visit, but the first time we have stayed in the villa.

This rating applies specifically to the villa.

The villa is a fully equipped house - : 2 x convection microwaves, dishwasher, tumble drier, oven, hob, fridge, freezer, and yes a gate with remote.......

There are three bedrooms, 1 with a double bed and 2 bedrooms with 2 x single beds in each.
2 bathrooms and a lounge with flat screen TV and satellite viewing. There are 2 identical villas next to each other. V1 has the bigger garden with outside braai area, tables and chairs.

Villa 2 (V2) has a smaller garden, but also has outside braai with table & chairs. There is even a washing line to hang up clothes you don't want to put in the drier. Thee units are air-conditioned, helps in both winter and summer.

This time we did not stay for breakfast, but from previous experience, their buffet-type breakfast has everything you want with out being cold / dried out. (and delicious coffee).

It never bothered us, but I feel I must mention that the lodge is right next to the presidential hanger.

Perfect place to stop if travelling between Springbok and Etosha, as it is on the edge of town and the nearest shopping mall is about 5min drive away. Maeura Mall - Woolworths food will be opening there in September, apparently.

Room Tip: Villa 1 or Villa 2 for families of 4 -6 members (and one on the lounge couch if needs be!)

Our decision to stay over in Windhoek en route back to Stellenbosch from high up north was a sudden decision and what a relief it was to get place for all 9 of us. Only problem we experienced is that no bedding, pillow or towel was provided for the xtra person (for whom a mattress was provided).
Breakfast was fantastic and great value for the 70 bucks per person. Service in the restaurant was excellent.

We stayed on one of the luxury campsites on our last day in Windhoek. The front desk was very professional and friendly. The campsite itself is excellent: large shower & toilet, small grass area, etc. Unfortunately, the luxury campsites are located right next to a very busy street, even at night. Sleeping is almost impossible. Because of the location describing them as "luxury" is very misleading.

In general nice place to stay for a few days:
1) Rooms are typical as for 3* hotel standards. Door lockers don’t looked safe, but fortunately nothing bad happened during my stay;
2) Very nice restaurant with decent food, drinks, good service and fare prices. Probably the best restaurant I've ever visited in Windhoek. Reservation has to be made in advance, as many tables are busy.
3) Reception staff (especially at night hours) are desired to be better. Guys are pretty relaxed and do not fully care about customer orientation.
4) Good value for money, but please, arrange everything in advance and have hotel confirmation at hand.

Room Tip: Pick up the room very close to Square area. It is the best location at the campus.

1. Rooms booked were changed with out our knowledge. 2. Wifi never works, every day the same answer "we're working on it" after four days still no wifi. 3. Breakfast tables are all reserved. You are expected to sit outside in winter. 4 staff have no knowledge of restaurants in the area and can't recommend anything. 5. Air cons in the "square" is so noisy it sounds like bees humming all the time in the room. 6. Still waiting for invoices that were supposed to be sent last week.
7. Same breakfast served for the last 5 years, no variety. Not even salt and pepper on the tables.

Room Tip: Choose the self catering rooms.

Points number 4 and 7, I can guarantee you, we are working on them.

Kind regards,
