The hotel is very nice, and the fact that it is the old Swakopmund station makes it a landmark in town. the rooms are spacious, but a bit dated. The bathroom was very small and very out dated. The shower in particularly was a nightmare. Staff was helpful but that's it! The restaurant is not fantastic, food is average and... More

I stayed here the past week end. Check in was a drag with the one receptionist on the phone speaking out loudly and trying to sell massages to me whilst still being on the phone instead of checking us in. The room was standard with all the amenities, The stairs to the room was a bit of a bother seeing... More

We loved the hotel. The room was great. Breakfast every morning was stunning - good variety. Staff are friendly. Unfortunately our stay was spoil because the air conditioner in our room was broken and was not fixed even though we reported it. Our room was unbearably hot which spoilt our stay. The hotel does not have family rooms so we... More

We had our wedding here, and from the start, the service and communication has been great. Service excellent, food is amazing, and the room was comfortable. Thanks to everyone who made it possible! Wish we could have spent more time here

Rooms are ok, and the hotel ok. But not ok priced. This hotel is almost the same price as I have paid in resorts in Europe. I can assure you that Swakopmund is not on any level with a European resort. It's difficult to even find a place at eat here in low season. But back to the hotel... It's... More

Any organization considering a potential venue for a major event ought to consider the Swakopmund Hotel & Entertainment Center, which served as the base for the 2013 Adventure Travel World Summit. Led by its creative and very positive leader, Janet Wilson Moore, the security staff, the hotel staff, the management staff, was just "on" throughout our entire stay and for... More

We stayed here for one night on the 1st leg of our short trip to Namibia. The hotel staff are friendly and the rooms were exactly what we expected - clean, efficient and quiet. The restaurant food was OK although some of the meat looked like it had been waiting since lunchtime so was a bit dry round the edges.... More

At time of our stay there was no bar - refurbishment- which was disappointing. The hotel did offer "room service" in the reception area - but the experience was awkward. The hotel was fresh looking - bits were being painted during our stay - and the inner courtyard - containing the pool -was beautifully maintained. Rooms were clean and well... More

Stayed here with my husband. The staff wrre eager and friendly. They were also very helpful. The hotel itself was not that impressive and the prices suggest. It is very old and I think they should update the furniture in the restaurants and rooms. I liked the food on the breakfast buffet. I am however not sure if I would... More

I stayed at the Swakopmund Hotel and Entertainment Centre for about 10 days in September. It is really quite a complex! It's the old rail station and you can tell, it has that air about it. It's sort of on the edge of downtown but very easy to walk to everything. Reception – This is nice. There's a lot of... More
