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.

The buffet breakfast is good with a variety to pick from. The rooms are fair. The service we got was good...they tailored our accommodation to our request. It is in the middle of town with shops a walk away.

Conveniently located in Walvis Bay. Check in staff slow. My ground floor corner room had a lot of street noise. Room was spacious, but fittings, as well as bathroom outfitting were worn. Restaurant lunch had limited availability, but food wasn't bad

This hotel is clean with Large rooms. Although in the city centre it not too loud and offers a free parking. Nearby some gas stations and shop so you can use the fridge. Breakfast is ok. Hotel is old and you see that with a loud fridge and the flooring and overall condition. Small restaurant we only had breakfast.
