Overnight stay at Central Lodge, Keetmanshoop

A convenient place for an overnight stop. The room was comfortable and the food good.

Most members of staff were friendly and welcoming and the owner/manager was involved and keen to have comments from us.

Central Lodge review

Young but inexperienced restaurant and bar staff, but they tried very hard to help. That said the rooms were spacious and very clean. We had a nice few hours after our arrival sitting in the garden area which was quiet and peaceful.

The manager was very helpful when we had to get a small repair done to our vehicle and directed us to a garage / workshop in town that could help us. He even phoned ahead to let them know we were coming, which was nice.

Stopover at Central Lodge

This was designed as a stop to break up a very long drive and it served its purpose. The rooms are tired and the A/C didn't work.

The pool area appeared very inviting for families.

Central Lodge review

We chose Central Lodge as a place to stay overnight to break the journey from Windhoek to Fish River Canyon. It served this purpose well and is also conveniently located for visiting the local attractions: Giant's Playground and Quiver Tree Forest. We were also able to join the cheetah feeding at 5pm at Gariganus Farm, where you buy your tickets for the Quiver Tree Forest.

We had dinner at Central Lodge in the evening and the meal was fine. Breakfast was another matter. We arrived at about 8am to find that other hotel guests had eaten all bread on the buffet and it was virtually impossible to get anything to eat! My repeated requests for toast were fruitless, whilst I saw toast being taken to several other tables!

This would be an excellent place to stay towards the end of a journey, as by the time we left I was wishing that I was back at home!

A memorable Manager!

We were disappointed that the 'luxury ' room with bath we had booked was not available apparently due to flooding .The alternative room with shower only was ok but the bathroom smelled of damp and the sheets on one bed were full of holes and the other was quite stained.

It was also very noisy right next to the outside terrace of the restaurant and with staff noise and radio sounds coming through the bathroom window on the other side as well. We had to wait a long time after we arrived for towels and toiletries to be provided so we couldn't use the bathroom straight away.

The manager was a marvellous, personable man who took it upon himself to bring them in the end and the next morning he also ensured we got breakfast even though it had all been cleared away (despite us arriving before it was due to finish and even having told the reception that we were going for a walk first and would be back to eat 15 mins before it ended) We were impressed that he asked the restaurant staff to lay things out again for us and even sent out to a shop for supplies as there was not much left after a large group had been in residence. We had initially been turned away by a waitress when we first arrived and were glad we had persisted and were able to enjoy the most beautifully cooked omelette of the entire trip!

A request for extra coffee supplies in the room to supplement the rather meagre existing ones was very promptly, politely and generously supplied so ironically the service was very good overall when it came to remedying 'problems'! The accommodation was in a useful position for walking round the interesting town and was a pleasant urban stopover with an attractive appearance and nice outdoor area.
