Friendly welcome, great view, good service

Only stayed a night but owner was super helpful and gave us loads of tips for our journey.

Even offered us a cool box he had spare. Room was very nice and the balcony had a great view over the town. Breakfast was top notch and great service.

Was a bit far from town center, but not a problem for us.

Hilltop Guesthouse review

The owners were on holiday, and the lady who was standing in for them was very concerned about guests safety. She advised us not to go out at night as a couple and we joined a group of 5 other guests to walk to a local restaurant. She informed us there had been recent incidents against guests staying at Hilltop. There was 24 hour security.

On checking the Uk Government web site it does inform visitors to Windhoek to be careful.

This experience did raise concerns for us having just arrived in Namabia.

Expert Africa comments

Although we understand that there have been some incidents involving guests at Hilltop Guesthouse in the town centre at night, we have heard from one of the owners on this matter and they do not believe that it is specifically Hilltop guests who are being targeted.

Hilltop a hidden gem

We were only one night at Hilltop but the manager/owner and staff couldn't have been nicer and the rooms were excellent for a B&B.

It's a little bit out of the way and hidden but there are a couple of restaurants at the foot of the hill that served good foor and wine at a reasonable price.

Thanks goodness we had a satnav to find it though.

Perfect stopover

We stayed just for one night after landing at Windhoek airport.

The location is nice, with a view out of the suburb - and a nice first African sunset. It was too far from the city centre for us to venture out during the afternoon we had there; we were recommended to take a taxi for any trips outside.

Restaurants are available nearby for an evening meal (short taxi ride).

The room was spacious and very comfortable. There is a reasonable sized swimming pool (which we didn't sample) and nice deck area for relaxing

Hilltop Guesthouse - perfect first night stop

Easy to find and well located on-top of a hill in a lovely part of Windhoek.

A perfect stop for a first night in Namibia as is reachable in less than an hour from the airport - and very little traffic encountered.

Good parking and secure. Felt very comfortable and safe. Easy to reach nearby restaurants e.g. Joe's Beerhouse.

Lovely, lovely rooms - very large and comfortable.

Great breakfast served on the terrace in the sunshine overlooking Windhoek.

Only regret is not staying two nights and using this as a base to see more of Windhoek...

Convenient Stay at Hilltop Guesthouse

We were impressed that we were booked into TripAdvisor 's top pick in Windhoek.

We had a great welcome when we arrived. Our rooms were spacious and lovely. Breakfast was probably the best one of the holiday.

It was convenient to eat at Joe's Beerhouse (which we really enjoyed) and downtown Windhoek.

Hilltop Guesthouse review

Glad we ended up at villa violet on way out - we thought it was better, hiltop is noisier with traffic nearby, two of our party had to endure cold showers in the morning we left as hot water rN out and there were no hair dryers in room / poor for the capital when they had often been provided rurally ) and unnecessarily for rural

Locations! Food was good though and host. Pleasant

Hilltop Guesthouse review

Excellent

At the start of the trip we had stayed at the Hilltop Guest House in Windhoek. This took some finding and I was grateful I had bought a map map of Windhoek to help us do this.

Once we were there we were very well cared for and the owner gave us the good advice to dine at the Social. We had an excellent meal there.

Also we were grateful we did not have to drive far that first day since we had not slept much on the overnight flight from London.

We stocked up on lunch type food and water at the Eros Centre below the Guest House before leaving Windhoek next morning.

Hilltop Guesthouse review

This was nice comfortable guest house.

The staff were very nice and the owner gave us some helpful information but was not around at check in and we felt that it would have been nice that the owner greeted us. I believe the owner lived offsite and this felt like it was the case. Breakfast served on the deck was very pleasant. Location was in a nice area of Windhoek but required a car.

All in all a fair place to spend our first night.
