A mile away is another Protea hotel and according to bookings.com was only R150 difference in rate. This means at this price you would expect more than a road lodge. However this hotel sits more on 2 stars. Clean rooms but you battle for warmth. Forgettable buffet both at night and in the morning. Nice touch of free Wi-Fi.

Stayed: August 2018, travelled on business

I think this met all my business requirements especially as I was a female travelling alone in a foreign county, I even explained this to your staff member Eino and because I had an outside room he arranged an inside room for me without any fuss. This hotel caters well for breakfast but I do believe they can "spice" up the dinner menu as this was very one dimensional but never the less portions are big.

Room Tip: Try to have a room inside and if you a few groups outside booking will suit you

This offers a good standard of an unpretentious upmarket place to stay in Walvis Bay. We had perfect adjoining rooms and enjoyed tasty room service on a windy Sunday evening. The kids loved the free wifi, and we could see the sunset over the ocean from our room. The breakfast buffet was generous with delicious pastries. Everything was up to standard and was a welcome oasis of service after our experience in Etosha.
