We were recommended to eat here by the owners of the guest house we were staying in nearby. Restaurant opens at 5 but there is also a bar where you can have a drink and wait. Down a gravel road with secure parking, well signposted from the main road. Our waiter, Liberty, was excellent, attentive and courteous with a lovely smile. Very good menu and large portions for both starters and main so we couldn't manage dessert.

A stop over night on our way to Joburg. The lodge is well sign posted down a very bumpy road. Welcome not bad but not taken to our rooms to explain how everything worked .. rooms are lovely although not sure about stable doors. Restaurant and staff was fabulous-food is really amazing and service very good. Breakfast not so good. Eggs and bacon already on a hot plate and nothing cooked to order everything was luke warm sadly - could be better when you know they have an excellent chef. All in all a good stay ..

This was the first night of our honeymoon (also new husband's birthday). Welcomed by friendly staff even though it was cold and dark, room had hubby's pre-arranged birthday bubbly and chocolate. A lovely warm bed fitted with electric blanket for the cold night saw to a good night's rest. Breakfast was greeted with warm coffee and delicious breakfast. Thanks for a lovely stay.

I'm really easy and not one to complain but this was a terrible experience. Room smelt like chemicals , eventually had to toss duvet and sheet out onto veranda in order to get some sleep. slept with quilt on matrass protector. They moved me on the second day but when I complained and asked for a refund they told me my personal preference regarding smell was the problem!! So chaps .... unless you like the smell of mothballs in your bed so strong that it makes you gag and your eyes water don't go here. The restaurant was average , the whole place was understaffed, getting a drink from the bar was an effort and I had four cats that kept trying to come into my room. And I paid for this??

We have stayed at Arcadia Guesthouse many times and it is one of our favourite places. Disappointed that the excellent restaurant wasn’t open for dinner but the breakfast was delicious. I love the cats and the homely atmosphere. The rooms are well decorated and very comfortable.

Out of town peaceful surrounds with plenty shade and trees and many many cats for cat lovers. Good cooked dinner and bar facilities a bargain. Lots of shaded parking. Good buffet breakfast. Missed proper strong filter coffee. Enjoyed good music while eating. Reception was unmanned at arrival but managed to check in.

We were very pleasantly surprised when we arrive at the Arcadia Guesthouse in Kroonstad, It is a little jewel in a secluded part of the town, with wonderful staff and a great restaurant where we had the best chicken salad, ever. The guesthouse had a lovely atmosphere in very secure surroundings. Highly recommended. In the same breath we also want to mention that the exceptional service we received from Desert Ace Tours & Charters in Namibia, who made all our booking arrangements, incl. flights, accommodation and vehicle rental. Stella who was our agent made all the arrangements and everything went off without a single worry. From travel directions to our personal needs - everything was covered which made this trip a pleasure. THANK YOU DESERT ACE!!
I highly recommend anyone wanting to book a trip too Namibia to contact www.desertace.com.na for top quality service.

The rooms seem well appointed and clean. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful however the dining experience leaves much to be desired. The menu offers some variety however the food is poorly prepared and arrived under or over cooked.

"Since it is a quite guesthouse I would chose close to the restaurant and main building to save me walking, unless you are a late sleeper."
