C'est Si Bon Hotel
Ranked #3 of 12 Otjiwarongo B&B and Inns
Reviewed 20 January 2017

We booked 2 rooms at short notice & asked for adjacent ones, which we got. The rooms were clean & the beds comfortable. Visiting 6 or 8 legged creatures passed easily through the gap under the door, but was ok, we had insect repellent.
The grounds were beautiful, well maintained & the pool quite inviting.
Some staff were friendly, some useless & the girl at reception exceptionally helpful, alas, even she couldn't get the wifi to work.
Breakfast was a mediocre affair with basic cereals, mystery juices from some concentrate, eggs & bread.
If we had to stay in Otjiwarongo again, we would probably return, there are not that many places to stay.

Room Tip: Would recommend rooms as far away as possible from the restaurant/pool area, some patrons can be lou...

This accommodation was a mixed bag for us. Everything was either really great or really bad.

Pros:
- Attractive grounds and units (by far the best looking thing in the suburb)
- Good food
- Breakfast served at 6:30 to allow for early trips to Etosha
- Aviaries for bird lovers

Cons:
- Gaps between window frame and thatched roof, so we were plagued by mosquitoes at night (was unbareable and this is also a low risk malaria area).
- Gaps between roof and next door unit, we could clearly hear every word of the neighbours movie!
- We sat at a table outside of our room (directly in front) drinking whiskey, only to be told by the manager that if we sit outside we must order from the bar, otherwise we must drink in our room. Never experienced this before!

Beautiful garden and pool. Girl at reception rude. Manager is friendly but does not know how to solve problems. Cleaning only in the morning so pool was full of insects and dirt. They say they have wifi but it is not working.

Thank you for your effort in sending your review. We are sorry about the Wi-Fi, unfortunately this is due to our service provider who is waiting for new equipment which is delayed by the festive season. All the staff at reception immediately received more training.

Nice property with the #1 and #2 restaurant (hotel restaurant) within feet. Spotty wifi, but that's to be expected. Hot water worked, beds were comfy, AC works well and the lodge serves as a pleasant oasis to break up a drive from any direction.
