This is still my favorite place to stay in Walvis bay. Small, friendly, neat and quiet. Although my last stay was more than acceptable, it seems that there is someone new in management as everything somehow seems cleaner, neater and more perfect, right down to the hot cup of coffee in the morning. Great morning sunrise for breakfast. Will be...

Lovely setting fronting the lagoon, not far from “everything”. A few things needed attention and they were all dealt with. Very helpful and welcoming staff. Our room had a great view of the lagoon, users of some rooms would need to use the generous lounge near reception for a full view. The upstairs breakfast area was a delight, sharing the...

This is definitely my favourite place to stay in Walvis Bay. Rooms are neat, functional and always clean. The breakfast room has an awesome view over the lagoon. So relaxing watching the pelicans and flamingos feeding, while you wake up drinking a fresh cup of coffee.

Had such a fantastic time at the Oysterbox GH. Dolores (the most amazing host) helped us arrange all our activities and gave great advice on restaurants and locals. She checked up on us after each activity. Also arranged our friendly and chatty cab drivers for us.

This well located guest house on the Walvisbay lagoon offers great rooms and good service. On the esplenade. Well located, walking distance from good restaurants and attractions. Highly recommended. Very contemporary with tastefully decorated rooms and all the luxury that your require.

Nice location, lovely friendly/helpful staff, nice restaurant, great breakfast, nicely decorated and fitted out. The only improvement would be a mini fridge in the room and tea & coffee making facilities. Other than that would be happy to stay there again and recommend it to other travellers.

This review was difficult to write. On the plus side, the location is amazing; we saw many pelicans and flamingoes from our bedroom. There is also a lovely outdoor seating area. There was however something really lacking and it's not easy to describe. The staff were courteous but always standing quietly in the background without a smile. None of them...

The location is excellent with views of the sea and often flamingos and pelicans to see.There are nice areas to sit out and watch the sea.The...
