The staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms are spacious, neat and clean and the air conditioning was a godsend. The restaurant serves delicious foods, the food service is not quick, but this is not a fast-food establishment and it was definitely worth the wait. We will definitely stay here again.

Overall we found the staff friendly and pleasant. Our room had clean linen and aircon that worked. Was well stocked with tea/cofee. Food was good at dinner and our traveller's breakfast was great. We would definately recommend this hotel to friends and family.

Myself and three companions on a motorbike trip to Namibia shared a self-catering unit. The price was reasonable, the dinner was wholesome and tasty. The room and facilities were spotless, well maintained. The owner paid us a personal visit, offered us an early breakfast and really went out of his way toe make us comfortable.
