Very beautiful and comfortable location. Near to the centre of the city. The staff is always helpful.
Excellent accommodations and attentive staff. They assisted us in every way possible. Much appreciated!
Parking space is limited for big 4x4's with offroad trailers. As for the rest, all was good and in order.
Very friendly and helpful staff. The place is comfortable and we used it to stay in Windhoek for our last night.
Comfortable and conveniently located. A sensible first stop to gear ourselves up for the more remote areas ahead.
perfectly adequate - breakfast was nice and they were helpful in dealing with windhoek and needing to fix a puncture.
Nice and clean with a very relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Really enjoyed breakfast made a good start to our long day
Lovely people, couldn`t be more helpful, and we had a great room by the pool, a good choice to begin and end our holiday.
Great venue, spacious rooms, great service, amazing service - wonderful breakfast goodie bags as we left early - felt spoiled
If I ever want to do business in Windhoek I will go there the hosts are so acommodating will not even consider any other place
Very pleasent nice place with good service, realy a home enviroment. We were very satisfied. In case we come again to Windhoek, we would like to stay here.
We were placed in the old garage, no ac only a fan. Afternoon sun had the temperature up in 30's. "we have so many guests", they will not have us once more.
Was a good choice to get adopted after entry. Very lovely familiar place to relaxe - good bargain! Friendly staff - as in all places we have been around Nam :-)!
Rivendell was the perfect spot. It is a beautiful place, the breakfast they offer ist great, the service is friendly, efficient and they really go the extra mile. I loved it there.
Excellent place to start or finish. Very helpful staff, good location, great breakfast, good rooms. Surely Namibia must be one of the few places left in the world with honesty bars.
Nice, comfortable room overlooking pool. Staff very welcoming, friendly and helpful. Parking area a bit small. Good breakfast. Could order in dinners. Close to downtown, museums, etc.
Good quality and convenient accommodation at the beginning and end of our trip. Excellent breakfast. Appreciated the communal kitchen and eating areas for self-catering in the evening. Friendly helpful staff.
Very good accommodation. Friendly and helpful. Only negative was the downstairs room we were given on our second visit. It was airless and damp and we were kept awake by a bad smell from the drains. Also, it would be nice if the owners banned smoking around the pool.
A lovely atmosphere with very friendly service. The rooms are neat and provide all the basic necessities. The option of the self catering kitchen is a real bonus, especially when you've been travelling all day and just want to relax next to the pool. I would recommend this establishment to all.
