I enjoyed staying in this hotel for 2 nights. The room was clean and spacious, the hotel staff very friendly and helpful. Their recommendations on what to do were spot-on. Breakfast was excellent, with bread rolls as good as those fresh ones I always love in Germany. The hotel is only 100 m from the beach, at the start of... More

Wow! From walking into the hotel and being met with a glass of cold juice to breakfast the following morning was great! The way you are made feel welcome and looked after is amazing and something that you do not often find. My room was perfect with the pristine white bedding, complimentary mineral water (yeah, you heard right), chocolate on... More

The location of the hotel, the quality of the rooms, the friendlyness of the staff and the value for money just make this a perfect hotel to stay in Swakop. the roof top terrace was also great; so was the breakfast - good variety & quality. Well done, keep it up!

We had a lovely large suite. Lovely comfortable bed. Staff were all very helpful especially the guys from the Bistro who came to our help when it was discovered we had a flat tyre. There is also a roof terrace which is ideal to watch the sunset whilst enjoying a sundowner.

Quite small rooms but very nicely done and lovely comfy beds. Was rather surprised to discover that both the hotel restaurant (next door) and room service ended at 6pm. As many of the cafes in the immediate area also shut early and The Tug restaurant is often fully booked you are left with limited options

The hotel has a large buffet style breakfast, ver y nice rooms and is located on the corner of the main street and the beachfront. Staff wil help you choose and reserve a restaurant, and even had my shoes repaired. Wonderfull experience! (All the restaurants are around the corner, and the environment feels very safe)
