"Great location and food"
The food in the restaurant was the best we had on the whole trip and the price of the wine the best value for the quality as well.
Very well placed for visiting Kolmanskop and Luderitz." See all these reviews: 15n in Namibia
"Situated in a very small settlement "
A notice advised that water was scarce here in the desert. It was heated by solar power which would be hottest in the afternoon and evening and it would cool down overnight. If no sunshine, electricity would heat the geyser. Thus evening showers were appropriate during our stay.
The main course of the evening meal was buffet style with the starter and dessert served at the table. We were very upset regarding the wine; on tasting, we found our bottle of Merlot was corked and undrinkable. Initially the inexperienced waitress stated we would have to pay for the bottle as it had been opened! It was not until our Ultimate Safari guide intervened that 2 acceptable glasses of house Merlot were produced and for which we paid.
This hotel in Aus is well placed to see the wild horses which live in the spectacular desert landscape and for us, was over an hour's drive to Kolmanskop, the old diamond mining town which we particularly wanted to visit." See all these reviews: 17n in Namibia
Lovely outdoor dining area on a balcony around the main building. Food was very good, service friendly, eager to please & welcoming.
The wild horses were worth a visit but sad to see them in such a poor state & learn how man is interfering with nature." See all these reviews: 27n in Namibia; 1n in Botswana

"Great stay at the Desert Horse Inn"
We were a little late in arriving so did not see the horses at the nearby waterhole but by getting there early the next morning, we were rewarded by a beautiful sunrise and seeing the horses (6) saunter over from afar to drink at the waterhole, followed by a lone Oryx bull.
As elsewhere in Namibia, the scenery was outstanding." See all these reviews: 22n in Namibia
"Desert Horse Inn review"
"Very homely with a lot of thoughtful touches"
The restaurant and bar area were lovely - we didn't eat dinner there as we were full from lunch although the barman did suggest a cheese platter which went down a treat - breakfast was lovely with lots of home made treats" See all these reviews: 15n in Namibia
"Relaxed camping at Desert Horse Inn"
However, this gave us the chance to visit the Garub waterhole immediately. The campsite itself is nicely located at the side of a few mountains. All facilities are good, the main building and reception area are at Klein Aus Vista which is 2km from the campsite." See all these reviews: 9n in Namibia; 2n in Botswana; 1n in Zimbabwe
