"welcoming and very suitable for first night"

1 night Arrived 6 Sep 2016
"after the car hire nightmare at the airport, Hilltop suited well for first night. the important email communication worked well. Just room for secure parking for each room.

we had decided not to attempt to eat out and bought food in from convenient supermarket as we entered Windhoek. Hilltop rooms had balconies to each room with convenient table and chairs, allowing relaxed informal eating. Breakfast individually served on this table was excellent."

"Top marks for Hilltop Guesthouse"

1 night Arrived 4 May 2016
"We had stayed at Hilltop Guesthouse on a previous visit to Windhoek and had thought it ideal as a stopover after our long flight to Windhoek. We requested to stay here again and were not disappointed. It is situated on the outskirts of town with a lovely open view. The owner is very welcoming, helpful and informative.

Our room was spacious, tastefully decorated and well equipped with water,tea/coffee,safe and hairdryer. It had a great view over the swimming pool and garden to the hills in the distance. The bathroom was also spacious with a powerful shower. The veranda in front of the room had a table where we were served a delicious breakfast. All staff were friendly and helpful.

I would have no reservations in highly recommending this accommodation.

We had a very good evening meal at The Social just a few minutes walk from the guesthouse, a modern Portuguese restaurant specializing in fish." See all these reviews: 12n in Namibia; 7n in Botswana
