Spent 2 nights here. Arrived at 7 a.m and they arranged a transfer for me from the international airport via Windhoek Tours and Transfer (150 Namibian dollars) Complete breakfast was waiting for me ($8Cdn). Bathroom, dining room, living room, TV and WiFi available while I waited for my room to be ready. Very accommodating staff. Friendly owner, David Cartwright, also can design travel plans for you through ATI Holidays. I had room 2 however the toilet was in the main building. Lights were left on at night but a small inconvenience considering the price. The Condor Room, self-service apt, is wonderful with cooking facilities, great shower and WiFi on your porch. It was nice to sit around the swimming pool in the sunshine. A bit cool for swimming in the winter.
Walked downtown - 10 minutes - picked up groceries at Pick and Pay. Would highly recommend the Namibia Craft Centre for shopping and a great café on 2nd floor (closes at 1 pm on Saturday and closed on Sunday) Café has slower service as each entrée is carefully cooked to perfection.
It was also great to hear travel stories from the fellow guests.
