Ti Melen
Ranked #18 of 102 Windhoek B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 September 2013

Ti Melen is a great B&B - easily accessed on the edge of the city, on the way to or from the airport.
Elizabeth, the manager, is wonderful - welcoming, friendly, efficient and a credit to the establishment.
We had dinner there and it was great - highly recommended.
We stayed in the suite downstairs - very spacious, comfortable and 'quirky' ... but in a good way!

From our friendly greeting by Elizabeth to our wonderful upstairs room with a view, we were charmed by Ti Melen, with it's slightly colonial come african feel and the ever cheerful and helpful
Elizabeth. Breakfasts were outstanding and we always felt right at home.Sitting on our balcony having tea and listening and watching the birdlife was a real treat. It's only a short drive to local shops and into town for sightseeing, but the peace and quiet you have staying out of the city humdrum is certainly worth it. You can even be at the Avis dam which is a local meeting / exercise area by locals, in 4 minutes. We would not hesitate to stay there again.

Room Tip: Upstairs room is fantastic.

Ti Melen is a perfect introduction to Africa. We loved arriving from London to a very large and very comfortable bedroom with beautiful balcony and similar mountain views. The bathroom (with a double shower) was enormous. If you're especially keen on Windhoek (is anybody?), you'll think Ti Melen is too far out. It's definitely in the suburbs and you need a taxi (10 - 15 minutes or so) to go into town. We loved its location and tranquility. It's a short walk to a dam with waders and other birds. We stayed our first night here before going on a three week camping safari and then the last night before flying out again. Owners and staff are very personable, helpful and relaxed. Elizabeth did the cooking when we were there and provided us with the best meals of our holiday. The place has its own distinctive style. Large, open and warm. The decor was certainly too original for an average hotel and slightly too fussy for me. But overall Ti Melen was what we expected plus. A beautiful place in a great location with owners and staff to match.

We spent one night at Ti Melen at the start of our Namibian trip. We were made to feel very welcome on arrival and the environment of the B&B is very relaxed. Beautiful and spacious bedrooms with equally large bathrooms (great double shower in our bathroom). Bedrooms have air conditioning which was welcomed after a long day's travel. Great breakfast and friendly service.

We stayed at Ti Melen at the start and end of a week's trip to Namibia and regret we didn't have more time to enjoy the place. The guesthouse itself is beautifully located and done up (barring the pram in our room which creeped me out!) and the attention to detail in all aspects of decor and service made the difference. The rooms were spacious and the bathroom was wonderful...what I would give to have a fabulous shower area as that! Loved the little dragonfly on the toilet roll.

The breakfast was superb and its a pity I could enjoy it just once given our short stay. Bianca and Elizabeth made our stay special. Ti Melen was our gateway in and out of the country and we hope to go back there.

Room Tip: Ours faced the front of the house and offered a fabulous view

We have really enjoyed ouir stay in this incredibly beautiful guesthouse-especially in the common quarters. althought personally for me there were perhaps a little bit too many details and I wouldn't have them all in nmy house, I've thoroughly enjoyed them there. For instance, a small chameleon on the toilet roll or on your serviette in the morning, tea and coffee at your disposal in the room plus home baked cookies and rose petals strewn over your bed. Great! Fantastic breakfast, with many options-things just kept on coming, perhaps the most amusing being eggs in the shape of a duck ;-) Fun, fun, fun! Also, one morning we got up earlier and went to walk to the nearby dam, we enjoyed the fresh air and got to know some very nice people who invited us to the local horse racing club for coffee and a cake on Sunday afternoon. Really great! More like a boutique hotel then B&B, highly recommended1

We spent only our first night in Ti Melen, and it was very good start of our holidays.
Gwenael gave us a warm welcome and we felt immediately a ease in this beautiful house.

Each of the only 3 or 4 guests rooms and the common living area of the house are large and decorated with a lot of taste.

We also appreciated a lot the advices (restaurants and routes for our trip) which verified to be very good.

Highly recommended.
