“Nearly great”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

Great setting, lovely main area but a little tired. The views are fabulous, the food is good, the service is ok but no better. With just a bit more care it could be fabulous. Having said that it was perfect for our overnight stay before flying home.

We only stayed one night here but it was great. After being stuck at the airport dealing with lost luggage we didn't know if we would make dinner. Phoned and the staff said it would be no problem they would sort out something for us if we were late. Happily we made it and dinner was fantastic. Rooms are super and the views are amazing. As to have breakfast outside so you can watch the animals. This is only a short drive to/from the airport so would definitely recommend it as a first night or last night option. As we had such a rotten flight over it was great to not have to go to far to get our first night of Namibian hospitality in. So a big thank you to our travel agent Rose Hipwood @ http://www.theluxurysafaricompany.com/ for suggesting it and offering every assistance. No thanks to Virgin for being late and losing our luggage.

Outside WHK, on top a hill. Great views to WHK at night. Amazing views towards the mountains in morning. Rooms are solid, clean & fresh and quite large. Lovely stoep to sit and take in the bush. Traditional Namibian/African experience. Decent B/fast. Would always go back again

We stayed here on the first and last nights of our trip. It is very handy from the airport, is only ten mins from a great shopping mall, and is a very pleasant place to stay. The staff were very friendly and attentive, the food was lovely. Nice decking area to sit and watch the sun go down and have a few drinks before dinner. The rooms are nice, individual little bungalows, very private, nice bathrooms and comfy big beds with great views. We would definitely stay again as it's so convenient, service was good and such amazing scenery.

We stayed in this hotel on our last night in Namibia. It is very conveniently located for the airport, but not so much for the city centre. We didn't attempt to, but I don't think you'd be able to walk. Also finding the entrance off the main road can be a bit tricky, so drive slowly as you approach.

The main highlight for me was the absolutely stunning view when you first enter the reception. It's almost like being in Italy and overlooking valleys covered with vineyards. They had a number of people arriving for sunset just to enjoy a drink at the bar, not staying at the hotel. The have a nice pool on the terrace as well with the view.

Rooms were large and comfortable. Unfortunately there was a curious smell in our room from the drainage. But I know our friends in the other room didn't have that same problem and I'm sure it's fixed by now.

I think there are many b&b type places in Windhoek. This is definitely a boutique hotel rather than b&b.

Food was delicious. But similar to most places in Namibia, it was a fixed menu rather than a la carte.

Visited this lodge on a business trip for a couple of days, very beautiful setting. Staff need a bit more extra training, made quite a few mistakes with orders for the group. TV's in room only have three channels, one local and one international news channel. Lodge have great potential to be great.
