Great place to stop over on way to airport

This was a good alternative to stopping in Windhoek and was in a peaceful location with nice views. It is quite difficult to find due to poor signposting and little useful information from Expert Africa. Best to get there in good daylight and look for the railway bridge as a nearby landmark. Maybe call the hotel for directions. Hotel sign is sideways on to the main highway and directions after that are lacking. However, when you leave it is really easy to get to the airport from here and avoids the traffic of Windhoek.

The room was basic and not particularly spacious but had a TV and fridge and was quite comfortable. There wasn't a mosquito net. It also had a lovely porch ovelooking nice views of the surronding hills. Staff were very friendly and service was good. Food was good and reasonably priced. There was a comfortable lounge to sit in in the cool of the evening. On the morning of our departure we really enjoyed being able to sunbathe on the pool terrace which had superb views and a cooling breeze. The manager kindly provided some free coffee and the best chocolate brownies I have ever tasted which was a lovely farewell gift from Namibia.

A good place to stop and repack at the end of a wonderful safari.

River Crossing review

We liked this hotel. Good location from the airport and nice food offering.

Not sure that it would warrant more than an overnight stay, but was good for a first or last night option.

River Crossing was a great place to start

The view of grazing oryx from our veranda was stunning and we enjoyed the view of the sunset from the deck before dinner.

The welcome was warm and River Crossing made an ideal and comfortable place to get over the flight from London and prepare for our adventure in Namibia. The food was ok and we enjoyed our short overnight stay.

Lovely location River Crossing

Great location, 15mins from town, and 20 from airport. Beautiful views.
We like River Crossing but it had a feel of needing a bit more management. Various things didn't work in the room, and nobody could manage the lock on our door even though they all knew it was dodgy.
The pool wasn't cleaned even though it is central to bar and patio and so everybody sits round it .
Confusion about whether we were on full board. They thought we were but because our voucher said B & B we had already booked to go out.
The dining room was nice, breakfast good. The second dining room which contains the reception sofa needs more thought. Very cold and dismal. A couple had to dine in there on their own and they were really miserable.

Pleasant enough for first night in Namibia

Welcome was good we were offered a juice drink straighaway. Very refreshing after the long journey from England!

Food of good standard and room spacious and comfortable. Did hear that this was part of a group and other Lodges in the group had been sold off. Would imagine River Crossing could be on the market as well.

Fine for last night stay

Convenient for the city and a lovely quiet location, but the place needs to be more professional in its service and general offering.

River Crossing review

Good spot for a stop-over on way in or out of Windhoek. Convenient to airport and we were happy to be there rather than in Windhoek. Neat to be out in the bush but near civilization.

The one surprising thing is that the website and marketing material suggest that there are activities and self-guided walks, but the attendant at the front desk gave a simple "No" when we asked if there were any activities that we could do.

River Crossing review

Beautiful views. Lovely location for the hotel and especially - due to it's proximity to the ariport it was perfect for us to catch the 6:30am flight.

Would recommend that as the best accommodation for the last night in Windhoek.
