Our first night on the arrival in Namibia. - Room 3
Extremely cold room, small, shabby and dirty with black hair in 6" long pieces on the bed and the floor. A cold corridor to wash, shower and toilet. An inadequate fan heater on all night to try to get warm. Very dull lighting. .
Breakfast good, the workpeople delightful.
Second visit. - Room 11
Better, larger room, warm with air conditioner. This apparatus ceased to be programmable by the next morning. Old TV with one working channel and massive interference. Beds 'gritty' ?! Floor in urgent need of vacuuming. Gas water heater in bathroom somewhat frightening when it 'explodes' when turning on the hot tap. One more explosion and the appliance shut down; no pilot light, no hot water! Some several minutes after complaining two persons tried for some time to get it working, which eventually they did. Shower doors not closing properly. Broken light fitting above mirror in bathroom with exposed electrics. No plug in the washbasin. The overflow exit from the washbasin was filthy. Kettle broken - lid loose - no milk. Generally a very poorly serviced unit, which corresponded to our impressions on the initial visit.
The door has to be closed using the key, as the latch doesn't work.
Again breakfast and staff as above.
Grounds quite large but minimally cared for. This could be an excellent venue, but not up to the standards that an international traveller expects. We know many people who would not have stayed here, and neither would we but having already paid.........
Suitable for travelling workers, not tourists except, maybe backpackers.
