"Elegant Guesthouse review"

1 night Arrived 23 Sep 2023
"This was a great place to stay on our first night in Namibia. The staff welcomed us warmly and asked about dinner plans; when we said we didn't have any they recommended several places and then made us a reservation. They also made sure we had a taxi contact to get back to the guesthouse.

Breakfast was tasty and the accommodation comfortable. I appreciated having a private patio to unwind in though there were also a number of sitting places (indoor and outdoor) throughout the property.

Parking is in two secure lots. The only challenge is that vehicles need to go one behind the other, meaning that in the morning we had to wait a few minutes to leave until the people parked behind us were ready to leave. It wasn't an issue for us but just something people should be aware of if they are on a schedule e.g. catching a flight.

Note for Expert Africa: the report I read on your website indicates there are just six rooms at this guesthouse but there appear to be at least 17 (we were in 16 and there was a 17 next door). So it was larger than I had thought it would be. This isn't an issue; it would be good to update your report, however." See all these reviews: 14n in Namibia

"Elegant Guesthouse review"

1 night Arrived 1 Sep 2023
"The guest house was clean and comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful with the manager (Pauline I think) booking us a lovely restaurant The Stellenbosch for our supper.

We just had breakfast which was fine but I can’t really comment on the food. We didn’t stay long enough to participate in any activities." See all these reviews: 12n in Namibia; 3n in Botswana; 2n in Zimbabwe

"One night Windhoek stopover"

1 night Arrived 25 Nov 2022
"A pleasant stopover in Windhoek with helpful staff.

They booked our dinner reservation for us (Leo's at the Castle - highly recommend). Very convenient location coming from the airport. Room was fine for our needs.

There was continental and a cooked breakfast on offer, plus cereals, yoghurts etc.

There is secure off road parking for your vehicle." See all these reviews: 12n in Namibia; 4n in Botswana; 2n in Zimbabwe

"Elegant Guesthouse review"

1 night Arrived 30 Sep 2021
"Our first day in Namibia.

It is unfortunate that it isn't recommended to walk in the neighborhood at night, but the management helped us get a taxi to Joe's Beerhouse, which was a fine place for dinner.

The room, grounds and breakfast were all fine." See all these reviews: 15n in Namibia; 1n in South Africa
