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

Excellent accommodation with a very comfortable mattress which was most welcome after the long flight from London. There was an onsite guard keeping an eye on the entrance to the property and the cars in the driveway. For me the best was the location which was a short walk downhill to Joes Beerhouse where we had a most memorable dinner. The coffee machine in the room was also a winner.

The owner came out in the morning to speak to us and we appreciated the personal touch. He advised us to buy a cooler box and told us that ice would be available at all service stations so we could keep our lunch drinks/provisions cool. This turned out to be a great suggestion and worked well for us.

As we had a double cab vehicle with a canopy, he also recommended that when driving we should keep the canopy windows slightly open to avoid the pressure building up in the back of the vehicle and excessive dust being sucked in. In truth the dust was so bad it was only the bin bags that saved our suitcases from certain death!

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.

Hilltop Guesthouse review

Hilltop was an excellent start to the holiday although finding it can be a little tricky, and having done so, the parking is a little tight.

The staff are excellent, from help with parking to receiving guests and helping with any enquiries. The accommodation is first class and spacious.

We found that it was simple to arrange a taxi to the iconic Joe's Beerhouse for N$70 each way. It is the type of place that makes one regret that they hadn't booked another night.
