It is difficult to say it very exact, because we stayed only one very short night, because we had to leave at 4:00 am to the airport. But what I can say about this, it was working excellently to get our breakfast-to-go in the fridge and to leave aur key at the night guard. Thanks!

A very nice guesthouse. Friendly service and delicious food. You do have to pay for internet access, but the rates are reasonable (20 R for 45 min). I would certainly stay here again!

Very nice in general. A couple complaints- my small single room was nice but very dusty; apparently had not been cleaned properly in a long time. Shared a toilet & shower that were near other rooms in the main house, so not a very convenient location for the single room (in an outlying building). Only one toilet and one shower shared by all rooms in the main house (maybe four doubles) plus the single room. Thankfully these were kept very clean.

The guest house is very comfortable, Situated in a quiet location and the walk to Town is 10 minutes. An excellent breakfast is offfered in the mornings at a reasonable price if one decides to have some. The staff have a good demeanor and are easily approacable. They are available for answering questions througout the day and the evenings. It is an excellent place to stay for both singles and couples. I would recomment it to others and would stay there again. Claudine.

Not the cheapest deal in town so you can expect some more value for your money. Our expectations were exceeded indeed: very clean, big facilities, quiet atmosphere (not the usual backpackers vibe), great kitchen, very friendly and helpful staff, close to town, a pool, a terrace.. Great place for couples/families or those that seek some quiet days. Would always recommend it!

Windhoek is a difficult city in general to get around so we had a bit of trouble finding the lodge. The directions were accurate, but arriving at night in a busy city made it problematic to identify streets. The lodge is very nice, spacious rooms, nice swimming pool, very helpful and knowledgeable staff. Has secure on street parking.

Amazing! Wish we'd been able to stay for much longer. Better than most B&B's in the UK, and only a fraction of the price. Fantastic value for money

Rivendell is a very pleasant guest house. The staff are very friendly and caring. They ensure that guest are comfortable and safe. They arrange tours and will go out of they way to please the guest. It is a very good place to stay for families, couples and individuals. The price is reasonable and within easy reach of the capital. Tea and coffee is provided and the breakfast is excellent both cooked and continental.
