Hilltop House review

We only stayed at Hilltop House for 2 separate nights when we arrived in Namibia and before we departed. The time we actually spent at Hilltop was therefore very limited.

We found the set up a bit strange and felt a bit awkward as though we were intruding in the owners' house. When we returned to Hilltop before departing the owner showed no recognition of the fact that we had stayed there only 6 days previously and did not ask us about our trip. It would have been a nice touch to remember us (there are only a few rooms and they were not all full so it would not have been that hard!).

The room itellf was nice enough and the breakfasts were good but I would probably not recommend Hilltop to others simply due to the fact that we did not really relax or feel very comfortable here.

A place to relax at the end of the tour

We arrived at Hilltop house at the end of a long a tiring journey. The location is excellent with splendid views, and the rooms are spacious and comfortable. The snacks provided by the poolside were tasty.

Our host organised our restaurant for dinner and taxi and also allowed us access to our rooms with no extra cost on the day of departure. This is an ideal place to stay at the beginning or the end of the journey.

Hilltop House review

Made very welcome after arriving. We feel we had the best rooom with the largest veranda and a good view. Someone even made us a snack which saved us going out and finding that Windhoek was all closed down on a saturday afternoon.

Downside--- they advised us not to walk back from Joes Beerhouse after dinner in the evening and gave us the card of an in house taxi driver who conned us into paying a lot of money for what was a five minute ride! Innocents on our first night in Namibia ---we should have known better and asked the price before we got in the van.

Hilltop House review

Was it us, or are the maps of Windhoek really upside down ?? Anyway, we found the house and thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay there.

The room was spacious, beautifully decorated, and with a dramatic view over the hills beyond. Breakfast on the balcony overlooking the town, flowering jacaranda trees & hills was lovely. The owner was extremely helpful and informative.

Conveniently placed for shops just down the hill, but advised not to walk there!

Hilltop House review

Good option for first night in Namibia. Alan was very helpful - gifting a travel adapter to us for the entire trip (it turns out that what had been sold to us in the USA as a Namibia adapter was no good as the pins were too small since all the sockets are actually South African format).

Expert Africa --- be useful to advise clients that the typical multi-country adapters that traveller have are no use for Namibia - most places having SA sockets as indicated above. Also local supermarket stocked adapters at very low price.

Hilltop House review

We only stayed here for one night and it was a welcome rest after a long flight, including the steep walk up the hill to stretch your legs if you walk into the city. The location is really good as it is only a short walk from the main part of the city. The rooms are to an excellent standard and very comfy.

The staff are very helpful and immediately upon arrival will make an evening reservation for you. We went to Joes Beer House which is a brilliant place with a great atmosphere, good if you are a meat eater, but us veggies are well catered for also!

It is worth checking with the owner of the hotel in the morning for directions onto the main highways as there are a number of roadworks and diversions at the moment, we found this advice and the route pointing out on the map really helpful.

Great View

This place offers a great view of Windhoek but not too convenient for just strolling into town.

The owner offered very good advice almost on anything in Namibia.
