Back in Walvis Bay, and as usual, I stayed in this hotel. This time, I stayed in the main building, instead of the outer rooms. BIG HIT… comparatively. I must admit that not much has changed since the last time I was here, and maintain most of the points mentioned in my previous report. However, in the main building, at...

Reviewed 3 weeks ago via mobile

Lovely big rooms and well equiped bathroom, but renovations are being done so there is lots of noise during the day. During dinner they ran out of food which infuriated some of the guests that came in late. Breakfast was good. They do have a laundry service but it is expensive, rather go down the street to the towns laundry.

The hotel is well situated in the city, and it looks pretty new. The rooms are well designed, the bathroom is big. The power sockets are South Africa style (like UK but with round pins) but there are also EU style avalable (not Shucko). The ground floor rooms are a bit noisy and the windows are not closing tight and...

Ok hotel, but some noise during daytime due to repairs. Breakfast was good. Staff was helpful and polite. I brought an adaptor for power outlet with many options but nothing did fit. Reception did not have any to lend out.

I stayed 2 nights at this hotel. The staff were very friendly and provided good service. It has a nice internal courtyard next to the restaurant where you can sit down and relax. I observed several family type chalets available.
