COVID-Times Review: We ordered basic takeaway from the Hotel while staying elsewhere in Keetmans. The food was generally pretty tasty, though the portions are quite large and the soup was way too thick. The ordering process was simple and the food was ready quickly. The menu is typically massive.

The menu used to be great. Now it is stocked full of 'trendy' items, but nothing special. No information on sides. The two items I did order were also nothing special - trying to cater for everybody's wishes, but not realy presenting anything extraordinary.

After we cosult Tripadvisor for a recommendation for the best restaurant in Keetmanshoop we visited Country Lodge twice. What a big dissapointment... from bad to worst. During the first visit the sushi arrived two houers after we ordered and after the dessert. We waited 45 minutes plus for drinks. There was not enough menus for everyone, and after a few minutes, before we finished the order, the waiter took it for another table. The floor manager, Tessa, apologised but explained there was a crisis in the kitchen with a pregnant cook, to few staff and the manager gone home. Maybe the absent manager is the core of the problem. During the second visit two weeks later, we orderd only small plates of chips and one wrap and drinks. The same old problems... The waiter Buti explained after an hour the kitchen forget about the chips! This time the manager was present but swear at the personel ( in front of our children) when he asked them why we had to wait so long. The best is between his swearing we heard Tessa gave us the first time a false name. Her real name is Roxanne! The food is good, the drinks are cold, but the manager and his personel is incompetent.

The restaurant is not the cosiest you have been too. The people are friendly, the food decent and tasty and the service excellent. Milkshakes from the on-site ice cream parlour a must have. The prices are reasonable. Parking in the street was dodgy and we would have returned if we knew there was private parking available.

The food is reasonable but the service is poor. One of our meals came 10 mins after the other as the originally ordered meal turned out to be 'out of stock, when it was due to be served. We told the owner but she wasn't bothered. Like most people we were passing through which is how a poor place such as this manages to survive.

When i visited central lodge in 2007, it was the most attractive town lodge in the country. Going back there 10 years later, i found a run down lodge with poor service levels. Surely management should wake up to modern facilities such as Quiver Tree and Birds Nest. Central Lodge is not recommended.

Not sure if this is actually part of Central Lodge as it wasn't the actual restaurant but it's next to the Tourist Info place and it's all attached so assuming so. After experiencing difficulty in finding cafes to stop off at during our road tour of Namibia it was a relief to find this lovely little place to stop for a coffee and snack. Nice staff, decent coffee and food and most of all cool in the heat of the day.

This is the first "major" town on the B1 and an excellent stopover before heading further into Namibia. Central Lodge is old world and can do with a bit of maintenance. However, the rates are good, considering breakfast is inclusive and the rooms are air conditioned and beds comfortable. Everything is clean and the staff are wonderful. Quite happy to return.

We had to wait for a place in the restaurant, but the food was fine and we enjoyed the meal. It is not fine dining, but is reasonably priced.

Place is very nice but we arrive on a public holiday and everything was closed in this town. Rooms were nice and comfortable . We could only order food by the evening as all the staff was off. Only the receptionist was there to welcome us. Thank God for the air conditioning as this place was extremely hot.

Our stay for one night was OK. Compared to other locations in namibia it is worth for a stopover for one night. Food/dinner was good though!

We found the restaurant by accident , looking for a place to eat in Keetmanshoop. The food is more than OK , certainly taking into account the price. If you are traveling to Fish River Canyon , this is a nice place to have lunch. Best to sit outside in the garden.

The staff are all very friendly and helpful. I think they have the best breakfast you can get and the omelet is absolutely devine. Latest addition is the wifi connection that one can access in the dining room and patio. There is a kettle in the room with tea, coffee, creamer and sugar. I noticed that thebar fridges are removed.
