We've loved hotel Thule! A hotel is situated a little bit outside of Windhoek city, in a quite area, with stunning panoramas. The room was spacious, the bathroom- functional, the staff was really nice and helpful, always ready to help. As we were in a colder season the outside pool was closed but we could enjoy the outside terraces with...

I love Hotel Thule! Why? Well firstly, it has great views over Windhoek - with the best views seen from the breakfast area / restaurant. Speaking of breakfast, a lovely buffet is provided with plenty of options for you to choose from: cold, hot or both; savoury, sweet or both! The staff are really friendly and made our stay most...

The menu is elegant and delicious. Really enjoyed the duck compared to many other places I have tried duck. The stuffed chicken was also top rated. Selection of wines was excellent for the menu. Desert also didn't disappoint. The service was exceptional and the restaurant duty manager checked up on us and ensured the service we were receiving was only...

Stayed for 2 nights. Large, clean, cozy rooms. Very helpful and friendly staff. The restaurant food is good, but menu could use more options. Breakfast is very big. The water pressure in the shower was very, very low. I would have asked to switch rooms if I stayed longer. Gorgeous views. Great hiking trail nearby.

4-star room, excellent location, good restaurant, and a host and a general service attitude that makes your stay.This was the first hotel we stopped at on our Namibia trip, and the best, both for quality and value. Thank you,Tripadvisor. The only negative observation was that it was quite difficult to find - especially in evening Windhoek traffic.

Lovely hotel, positioned on the hill side. Friendly staff. Great choice of breakfast - German style, pastries, hot English breakie. Rooms are light, airie, clean and have great facilities (safe, TV, WIFI, coffee/tea). Restaurant has a glass view of the town, which is very pretty.

When I booked a table for dinner I was given a table at the window (by Beate) and was happy with the choice as we were entertaining friends from out of town. She also informed me that we were the first booking for the specific Saturday evening and could have a window table. However, when we arrived we were told...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Thule was originally a one-time luxury home built by the late Edmund Lafrenz in 1960 as a sumptuous home for himself and his late wife, Liselotte. It was purchased by Windhoek businessman and entrepreneur, Wolfgang Egerer just before the turn of the century, who then reconstructed it into the beautiful up-market 25 bedroom hotel it is today. The outstanding panoramic views over Windhoek are a unique and unparalleled feature of this pearl of Namibia. Hotel Thule offers first class accommodation, quality service, tranquillity and style to ensure customer satisfaction. ... more   less
