A nice place near the airport

Our visit to Elegant Farmstead was as a final "shipping off" point, so we were only here for a minimal time. The room was adequate. The staff was friendly and the grounds were lovely. We did take a dip in the pool. There was wifi in the main area but it was a fairly weak signal.

Elegant Farmstead review

No porter service.

Staff not particularly well-trained, though generally friendly.

Good stop-off before Windhoek

A slightly disjointed lay-out and poor wifi.

Service also slightly erratic but done with smiles.

Lacked staff training.

Good stopover place

Rooms were simple and food was nice. A good start, although it seemed a long drive from the airport on pretty uneven roads.

Relaxing, great place near Windhoek

A great place to stay an easy drive from Windhoek. Lovely gardens and lots of places to sit and relax. Friendly service. From our point of view, a much better place than the city to finish our trip. Lots of nice treats such as home-made cake with afternoon tea, hot water bottles, and a chocolate on the pillow. A larger swimming pool than most places.

There are some good well-marked self-guided walking trails, though there seemed to be an expectation that guests would only follow the shortest trail. A better map or leaflet showing the trails and indicating the length of the different routes would be very helpful. We saw quite a lot of wildlife along the trails - kudu, ostrich, warthogs, blesbok, baboons etc.

Great place to stay

We only stayed one night but would have preferred to have two nights here to take advantage of relaxing in this lovely place. Self-guided walks, swimming pool etc. Perfect service.

The manager went out of her way to help me check in at the airport by lending me her laptop. Great service.

Great stopover on way to Etosha

Pleasant facility with helpful staff. Some very tasteful decoration and touches. Food was really good and excellent choice of wine.

We did the walking trail which was a good way of stretching our legs after the long flight. The sundowner was worthwhile with a good location to see our first sunset of our trip.

Afternoon tea and cake a nice touch.

Elegant Farmstead review

A wonderful introduction to Namibian accommodation - and we were sorry to have spent such a short time there.

Lovely gardens, a great restaurant, friendly and welcoming staff.

Elegant Farmstead

An excellent stopover on the way back to Windhoek.

Our room was decorated in honour of our 35th wedding anniversary and we had a private dinner in the wine cellar! A delightful surprise.
