              All was fine. Secured parking, friendly staff and clean rooms. Food was good.

              The guest were friendly and helpful. The place is neat and clean and the food was good. The room we stayed in was also good for the night we spent there but if I were to stay for longer I would request a bigger room.

              We stayed here for 3 nights and even stayed an extra night we enjoyed the place. It was the cheapest place we could find in Swakopmund and I would recommend it to anyone. The room was cleaned everyday and the place itself was neat and tidy. Friendly staff always willing to help. The only I can fault them on is the fact that their WiFi was incredibly slow and there was no kettle or tea and coffee in the room.

              Place is neat and tidy. But has more of a back packers feel then Guest House. A small bar fridge in the room would be nice. Enjoyed the stay

              My girlfriend and I enjoyed our weekend getaway very much. The breakfast served was well done, the staff very friendly and most helpful.
