"Elegant Guesthouse review"

1 night Arrived 5 Jan 2019
"Such a beautiful guesthouse in Windhoek.

We were treated very well and staff couldn't have been more helpful at giving us directions and advice on where to go. We didn't get chance to see much of Windhoek.

Went straight to Joe's Beerhouse for dinner." See all these reviews: 10n in Namibia; 2n in Botswana; 2n in Zimbabwe

"Elegant Guesthouse review"

1 night Arrived 2 Sep 2018
"Elegant Guesthouse was ideal for us as an overnight stopover. I have stayed in the Olive Exclusive which is smarter and has larger rooms but as we were not staying in Windhoek for long we were happy with this guesthouse." See all these reviews: 9n in Namibia

"Good solid B&B"

1 night Arrived 18 Mar 2018
"We stayed here on our final night. All we wanted was a bed and bathroom, and that's what we got. It was all very clean and nicely presented, although the room was a little small.

A standard breakfast which was perfectly adequate.

They sent us down the road for dinner to a lovely buzzy place which was absolutely packed with a great atmosphere.

The Guesthouse is on the convenient side of Windhoek for the airport.

There was a helpful young lad who happily brushed all the copious amount of dust off our bags after three weeks in the back of our 4x4!" See all these reviews: 18n in Namibia; 5n in South Africa

"Elegant Guesthouse review"

1 night Arrived 11 Oct 2017
"Information provided earlier in the review because we stayed here twice. [Ed: see below]

Generally good but marred the second time by the problem concerning the pick up of the hire car - not at all the fault of the guest house" See all these reviews: 14n in Namibia
