“Good”
Reviewed 30 April 2013 via mobile

Rooms vary quite a bit. Stayed near the main lodge and pool. The smell of the thatched roof is quite strong. Dinner was good in the restaurant. The pool was not heated there were no other restaurants nearby to go to.

Stayed April 2013, travelled on business

This place is OK. The service is not great. Check-in takes too long. They charged me twice for my stay. There is free wifi but they will try to make you buy an internet card, rather than tell you the hotel wifi password. A colleague of mine was able to get the password, even though earlier in the day the hotel tried to get me to purchase an internet card. The service through the card was not working, yet he still didn't give me the password for wifi, instead letting me use the office computer. I had to pay a deposit to have a remote to my TV. My room was OK. It was roomy and the bed was fairly comfortable, if not a bit hard. I did not like not having a top sheet on the bed and the double bed was just two twins pushed together. The shower had good pressure and always had hot water. It was clean. The air conditioner was also a nice relief at the end of the day. The main issue with the room was that it smelled terrible. I think it was the treatment used on the type of roof that was on the building - kind of a straw-type material. Whatever it was, it made the room smell like a room that had been on fire at some point. It was not pleasant. Also, do not plan on using the pool. It is incredible dirty at all times and not welcoming. The food was good. The breakfast is nothing special, but the dinner menu is good. I never had a bad meal. I would stay here again if I had to, but there may be nicer options.

Room Tip: There are barking dogs until about 11 at night, starting again around 5 in the morning. Ask for a r...

Reviewed 29 July 2012

My husband and I stayed one night at the Out of Africa Town Lodge. It worked well for a rest stop in between Etosha and Sossussvlei. The room was large and comfortable, except for the shower which was a tub with a hand held sprayer. There was a guard on duty so we felt that our car was safe, and the breakfast in the morning was nice. Overall though, it was a bit expensive for what we got.
