Stayed here for one night after a tiring drive en route from Sossusvlei to Damaraland. As we approached the coast, we were surprised to encounter fog, and a decidedly chilly wind.But a warm welcome at this pleasant hotel revived our spirits. The hotel is situated in a quiet road just across from the promenade and ocean, with shops and banks nearby. Modern and clean, it looked a better bet than some of the other hotels we came across.
Our room was located above an adjoining restaurant, and could be reached by a small footbridge from the hotel, or directly from the restaurant steps. It was large and comfortable, with a wonderful bathroom containing bath and shower.
We took dinner at this restaurant ( I think it's called Zum Kaiser) in front of a blazing log fire, and food was good and reasonably priced (N$340 for two, including 2 large glasses of good wine, beer and bottled water).
There is a private car park to the rear.
All in all, a good little hotel.
