Rostock Ritz review

Rostock Ritz provided a welcome break on a long drive to our next destination. The scenery all around is stunning and although the rooms are smaller than all the other places we visited, the view from our terrace was beautiful. We loved the swimming pool; again with wonderful views. Our meals were excellent and the meerkats were entertaining. We took a self guided walk, of which there are several to choose from and maps are provided. It was really good to take a hike and absorb our surroundings after sitting in a car for hours.

A lucky upgrade

Upgraded to superior room thanks to a coach party occupying the standard rooms, one night stop over was sufficient to complete an evening and morning walk.

Rescue meerkats were entertaining

Rostock Ritz paradise

Faultless as usual. Staff so friendly and helpful. Off road adventure was great fun. The only place off the beaten track that provides an a la carte menu which meant an oryx free night!
Various well marked walking trails.

Rostock Ritz review

A quirky, out-of-the-ordinary place to stay amidst breath-taking scenery. We loved walking on the ridge behind the lodge, looking at the rocks and the staggeringly beautiful landscape.

The room was a bit cramped and we would have appreciated a coffee/tea maker since the main dining area was a short walk away.

The father-son team managing the place (sorry! can't remember their names) were friendly and supplied us some useful reference books (which we'd been keen to consult) so we could look things up.

Unexpected Delight at Rostock Ritz

We would have enjoyed another day here to explore its fascinating landscape. The well-marked trail system offers a great variety of rock formations and plant life, outstanding views, and wildlife. The meerkats, both in rehab and in the wild, were entertaining to watch. Everyone was helpful, and our meals excellent--though we did spend more than anticipated.

The igloo-shaped rooms are an interesting feature, but a little more cramped than most of our stays.

Rostock Ritz review

Wonderful setting and a great place to stay on the dusty drive between Sossusvlei and the coast. If you like walking stay for more than one night as the walking is great.

We had a family room which was spacious and comfortable with great views. The pool is beautiful (bring wetsuits in July and August unless you enjoy cold water swimming - water temp 14 degrees C! ) and the meerkats down went down well with us all. Food pleasant but not as good as guidebooks might suggest. If you do one walk do the Ugab springs walk

Could do better

Location very good and facilities. Service a lot to be desired as was the welcome. Host appeared to lack managerial skills.
Fawlty Towers comes to mind

Rostock Ritz review

I was at the Rostock Ritz for one night and could happily have spent longer there.

Pros:
1. Stunning location, fascinating chalets shaped like igloos, designed to conserve energy.
2. Very friendly and welcoming staff, includin the managers, the Goosens.
3. The owner came over from his house at dinnertime and walked around and chatted to everyone in the dining room, a really friendly and engaging gesture.
4. Excellent food and service at dinner, also at breakfast
5. There were several resident dogs around, which I enjoyed.
6. Lovely pool and the most comfortable pool chairs, of a most interesting design
7. The place hosts a meerkat rehabilitation center, which was fascinating to see in operation. It also generated some great stories.
8. The evening game drive took us over some remarkable terrain and the guide (also one of the managers) was very knowledgeable about the territory, and the animals and birds in it.

Can't think of any cons, except perhaps that the chalets were very small, and felt a bit cramped, especially after Sosusvlei :-).

Beautiful location, nice rooms.

The rooms are unique: those stone igloos are very nice.

A great place for hiking, with very well marked itineraries.
