A shame as the hotel is a beautiful little boutique guesthouse however no sense of hospotality management. The rooms are small and cosy however no fan and no water offered, fan was missing, additionally when we wanted to freshen up there was no soap in the shower (at all). We asked for the wifi and the receptionist Erna was not...

It is a really nice Guesthouse. Nice rooms and there is enough space for everyone. The breakfast is really good. A lot of different breds, jams or fruits or you can order a egg. A lot of cheese and sausages. The people are friendly and to the center of Swakopmund its about 5 minutes. The price is also really good....

I doubted between three or four stars. I feel like three is a little low, but we had ants in our room so I couldn't give four either. The place is fine, rooms are spacious. Not brand new but still fine. Breakfast was great and the staff friendly. Location is great, walking distance to sea and centre of Swakopmund.

As a family of five we stayed in the large appartment for three nights. We liked everything, location, very friendly staff, great breakfast... But the biggest asset is the management: Christiane helped us organize just about anything, trips, restaurant reservations, laundry service, next lodges... A real home away from home.

There was nothing really wrong with this guesthouse and breakfasts were excellent, however we felt that it needed some TLC. There were parking spaces and an overnight guard. It is only a 5-10 minute walk from the beach.

What a lovely place to stay. You don't just only smell the sea, but the rooms have a beautiful beach house look with crisp clean linen and a tranquil garden. I've been there for business purposes, but I'm sure it will be a great place to go for holiday as well as it is close to town and great restaurants....

We spent only one night. We were in the room directly across from the lounge main office dining area. The room was very clean and nicely done but the French doors which were the main source of light and ventilation opened onto the main courtyard throughway. This meant we had to keep the shades completely closed for privacy. Happily there...

Staff were overall helpful. The location is in a rather ugly corner. They were kind enough to stop the construction so that we could rest one afternoon. Breakfast was just OK (horrible pseudo-orange juice!). There's not much to the town to be fair, so this place stands out for its very pleasant decoration on the common areas (not so much...

Marine theme can be a bit overwhelming, but overall ambience clean and fresh, excellent breakfast and the owners and staff charming and helpful. Good location, a bit out of town centre (only 5 minutes walk) and quiet with decent parking
