Ghaub Guest Farm review
We loved this stop off. The manager was just the best, we were the only two guests and made to feel like royalty.
Rooms very good, except we were getting used to having open air!! Food home cooked. The pool huge with great views.
It has recently changed hands we will be very interested in visiting it when it upgrades itself, as it is a little in the dark ages, but added to the experience.
Ghaub Guest Farm review
Loved the location and .....great pool and rooms will be good when they have been refurbished. This property changed hands 3 days before we arrived. Sold by Namid Sun Hotels (who had obviously let it run down.eg. broken and rotten poolside loungers, no visitors book, bar needed refurb.) It has been bought by Andre Compian from Farm Elismor, who some people appear to like, while others appear to worry about his intentions and the future of the Guest House and Farm.
The Staff and girls in the kitchen were all great, and as we were the only guests we appreciated all their efforts.. under the circumstances. We found it very relaxing after our journey and a good place to stay on en route for a couple of days.
PLEASE NOTE THE GRADES BELOW [Ed: to the right here!] REFLECT RECENT SALE. eg. Facilities could be excellent when refurbished and the service was very good under the circumstances.
All to ourselves
This is a strange stay to classify. Firstly it took a long time to drive back down from the Okavango for various reasons and when we arrived we discovered we were the only two guests.
The property is set in a super location surrounded by hills and thick bush and a very good hide has been built overlooking a waterhole. This is then further overlooked by a swimming pool in a nicely laid area.
The accommodation is set in four blocks of three terraces and consists of a main bedroom, lounge area and en-suite shower and toilet and is large and airy - maybe because the property was once a mission station as we understand.
However we were told by staff that the farm was in the process of being sold and that the new owner was in fact going to be there the next day and that there was no guarantee that it would continue to be run as a Guest Farm.
This may explain the quality of our evening meal which has to be said was disappointing and the fact that breakfast was poor by previous standards.
However on location and standard of rooms a good stay.
Great place to stay
Only guests that night. Fully booked next night.
Checked on arrival if meal that night was ok with us - not suitable for Mrs B so they changed the meal to suit which appeared to be no trouble. Accom, grounds, everything was excellent.
The next day we drove off in what we thought was the right direction but it turned out to be a longer route and the manager followed us to put us on the right road.
