"River Crossing review"
"Better than a hotel in Windhoek city?"
"Convenient for the airport"
"Great location near the airport."
A great location if you're needing a short journey time to the airport too." See all these reviews: 14n in Namibia
"Ideal location near Windhoek airport"
Our chalet had a small terrace with seating and great views looking out over the bush towards Windhoek in the distance. The room was spacious and comfortable with kettle and tea and coffee. However the bathroom was badly in need of a refurb and whilst the shower was very powerful, the cubicle was in need of a deep clean. It was great to be able to catch up on TV once again but a shame there was no mirror in the bedroom or spare electric sockets which meant hair drying couldn't be carried out adequately.
Food was excellent with Oryx beautifully cooked. At breakfast we ate the best scrambled eggs we had tasted during our time in Namibia. It was also welcoming to find that tea and great coffee was freely available in the restaurant area at any time of day.
With the addition of a mirror in the bedroom and a refurb bathroom I would class this experience as excellent" See all these reviews: 17n in Namibia
"River Crossing review"
"Great place to rest after long flights"
The cottage was really nice, secluded and thus quiet, and the bed super comfortable, the shower had lots of hot water and the swimming pool in the main house an extra comfort.
The dinner was very tasty indeed and staff very friendly." See all these reviews: 6n in Namibia; 5n in Botswana; 2n in Zimbabwe
At last met up with Sabina and her husband Nessa. A delightful couple." See all these reviews: 9n in Namibia
"The birds were a wonderful surprise!"
They now do meals, which were very good, and meant that we could relax rather than going into Windhoek" See all these reviews: 19n in Namibia
"Excellent option for first or last night stay"
I will preface my review (as I will for most) by saying that we had a fantastic trip and therefore almost all ratings from us will be excellent, despite any comments and observations I note that might indicate otherwise. They are simply comments that we felt might improve the experience for future guests or be somehow noteworthy. We were in Africa and there are therefore some challenges and allowances have been made for this.
Almost all were excellent in our opinion, some were outstanding and some other small things we feel could enhance the guest experience.
To River Crossing: Beautiful location, warm welcome, stunning deck with superb views for sunset drinks and morning breakfast.
Personally we had no issue at all with the choice or quality of food (both dinner and breakfast), and found all staff that we interacted with to be personable, accommodating, relaxed and comfortable in their work and around guests. Nicely designed communal area with pool.
Rooms were not on a level with some of the more specialist lodges that we stayed in, however our room was clean and everything provided that we needed for a one night stay.
Wi-fi would not connect for us in the room and was sporadic in the main communal areas. There was a television mounted on the wall in the room but no channels seemed to be programmed. This was not an issue for us as we had no interest in watching television, but in such a beautiful location are they really necessary (maybe for the radio channels?).
We would happily revisit." See all these reviews: 22n in Namibia
