“Great Stay”
Reviewed 23 September 2008

Hotel is perfect for business and family travellers. Location to the regional airport is perfect if you intend to fly to other destinations in Namibia. Hotel rooms have recently been upgraded and are clean. Good variety of TV channels.

The golf course is a good challange in the heat.

Staff is friendly however some of the food on the buffet needs a little work.

Stayed here for a night coming in and going out, both times fine but not great. Our non-smoking rooms smelled like smoke (although I saw that they are renovating a section of rooms which will be non-smoking), they were totally confused at the front desk by our reservations (we had three rooms in our group, but it was clear in the reservations who was in which room, etc.), and the key for one room was a nightmare the first time (didn't work, they got confused, then belligerent, lots of back and forth with the desk, and it all took a long time to resolve). That said, the rooms were big, and the breakfast was okay. I don't recommend it highly, by any means, but for large resort hotels in Windhoek at this price, I think the options are limited (based on information from people we were with who come often).

  • Liked — easy access, can book through Expedia, pool for kids

We were given a smoke-filled room which we could smell walking down the hall - little did we know it would be ours. There were welcome flowers and envelope for Ambassador ? on the coffee table! I asked Reception for a non-smoking room. This time we had a problem getting the key to open the door, when it did the room was a complete mess and OCCUPIED. So much for security. The third room we were told was the model suite - this was falling apart - wallpaper hanging off the walls, torn drapes, taps hanging off the sink, shower didn't work. I could go on - not to mention the food.

Really good hotel with great staff. First trip to Namibia so didn't know what to expect.Some less than good reviews so thought about changing but didn't. Great base for the local Eros airport to start any fly in Safaris or trips to the coast and the dunes. Good location in Windhoek with a shuttle service to town centre. The concierge manager is a real character and was extremely helpful.

After visiting Namibia for 2 weeks we needed one last night 's accommodation in Windhoek to catch an early morning flight. Finding accommodation in Windhoek I found a little challenging. We didn't want the hassle of a bed and breakfast and a location that wasn't in the downtown was important to us. We chose the Windhoek Country Club based on location, and its rating. We joked about staying at a 'Country Club' and thought it would be very nice. We were looking forward to a very nice hotel to rest before our flight.

The location was terrific. We had been driving all day and we were both beat. We checked in and the restaurant and lobby was very nice. Our room was more like a roadside inn. The mattress, pillows and bedding were deplorable. Everything should have been recyled or thrown out long ago. The mattress was worn, sagging and awful. The sheets were so thin they were like cheesecloth.

Another disappointment was the dining room. We were hungry and so looking forward to a good meal. Well not at this hotel. They have one restaurant and it was serving a seafood buffet ONLY. No ala carte menu that night. How can a hotel with only one restaurant not offer its guests more of a choice than a seafood buffet? What if you were allergic to seafood? We ended up ordering room service and it was barely edible.

The highlight was the buffet breakfast the next morning. I will give them credit for that. It was an awesome breakfast, the best in all of Namibia. Unfortunately a breakfast doesn't make up for a poor sleep and poor dinner.

  • Liked — Buffet Breakfast and Location on the outskirts of Windhoek
  • Disliked — Dining options, rooms need a renovation, beds should be thrown out!!

Unless you' re the type to make a pile of your money and set it on fire - don't waste your money or your valuable holiday time HERE!!!! It's slim pickings in WIndhoek - but google bed and breakfasts!!!! I found a magic one in the similar price range for my return journy to Windhoek. [separate review]

Ugh! is the best way to describe this wretched faux Africa decor unless of course kitch is your style. Ugh! is the best way to describe the food unless of course you adore bad service and over cooked buffet fare. Ugh! is the only way to mention the bedding in the room unless of course you like to wonder if the sheets have been washed.

A more soul-LESS venue you could not find for love or money. Seriously folks. Seriously?

Rooms very average - be sure to request a room that overlooks the pool area. The pool has a "lazy river" running around it that was a hit with kids, no adults in the water too cold. Large breakfast buffet - pretty good. Dinner average, not very attentive service. The Chinese restaraunt was fun and average food. The hotel is not with in walking distance to anything, but you can take a walk around the golf course. Next time I woud stay in the city with walking access to shopping and dining. Word of caution - we (four adults) were seated in our van in front of the Department of Tourism in downtown Windhoek waiting for our guide who had briefly run in. A group of six local men walked up to one side of the van and began banging on it and making threatening gestrues. While they maintained our attention, another man went to the other side of the van, reached in an open window and stole a bag. Our guide told us this is a common practice throughout Namibia.
