Stunning looking hotel in amazing surroundings..... but thats where the amazement stops.
If you're not driving... forget about this place.
We were initially quoted $180 USD and later $150 USD by Hotel Reception for return for 2 from Sesriem (all of 21km away). Note: we travelled Windhoek to Sesriem, c400km for $40 USD/pp!!! As such, this hotel is VERY HUNGRY.
At the pool we ordered, or at least tried to order.... stuff as basic as toasted sandwich, or an icecream etc only to be told there was none or the icecream was only available at adjoining restaurant building, c200 yards away, and that opens at 6.....after the sun has gone down!!!
Sundowners offer nice views, albeit the drinks are extra but no problem there.
The evening meal menu is a highlight, good food, well prepared and service at the restaurant is very good.
In general, some better management, bit
of proper upkeep (relying on views only last so long, a tired building will eventually catch up to owners detriment) and offer some token value and this place could survive. If not..... this place is in danger of being a thing of the past!!
The in room brochures etc are all tattered and when asked if there was local taxi firms etc, no response was forthcoming or little assistance in general.
In short, we wouldn't stay again..... at half the price...
