It was only a 5 or 10 minute walk into the town centre which was great. Nice accommodation, very pleasant and helpful staff and great breakfast. I left a small parcel behind and they went out of their way to get the parcel to me. A big thank you!

We stayed here for 2 nights between our trip in the Namib Desert and heading up to Etosha. It was very clean and comfortable with tastefully decorated rooms. The breakfast was good with great omelettes as well as buffet. No problem recommending staying here.

Dear BobCScotinWales - I loved reading your feedback and the good time you had here at Namibia's no 1 coastal town! Yes I know our local shop opening hours on weekends are a little "old style" in this sleepy town! Hope you still had an excellent time travelling through other parts of Namibia - greetings - Namib Guesthouse
