                      Doesn't feel part of town at all. Was great and relaxed. Clean and neat. Restaurant was good we had dinner and breakfast. Remember dinner is between 7 and 9 and if you are still there by 10 to nine they start dimming the lights :(The rest was good.

                      The rooms were comfortable, but neither of them had been properly 'serviced' as there was no soap in one bathroom, and wastepaper baskets had not been emptied.We had a trickle of hot water in our shower, but our family had only COLD water!Although advertising an a la Carte restaurant only a set 3 course dinner, which at N$195 we thought was very costly for what we got, was available.The groiunds are very pleasant, and it is very well situated for visiting Finger Rock, Twyfelfontein, etc.

                      The accommodation was a very different experience and one we were not expecting. The chalet had only one bedroom though 4 beds (2 of which were in the "lounge") The facilities for cooking were very Spartan, though adequate. The chalet was very dark, because of the local building materials used and this probably clouded our experience. The setting however was quite pleasant and very private.Overall our experience was quite good. the general facilities were more than acceptable.
