Great Location!!

Our stay here was fine, and we enjoyed the view and fresh air from our oceanside room.

The twin beds were small, short for my 6'4 husband, but comfortable. Both breakfast and dinner in the hotel were good, and the staff was friendly and helpful. We explored the area and had two fantastic visits to Kolmannskuppe.

The perfect location for our agenda.

Nest Hotel review

The hotel is right by the sea but pretty boring and in a pretty boring town.

The room was fine and clean and the food in the restaurant good. The pool was closed all the time we were there for no apparent reason.

Expert Africa comments

The General Manager, Ulf, at the Nest Hotel has specifically asked us to post his response to this review in its entirety, which we are adding below, as requested. Expert Africa would also like to add that we tend to find that some people love the slightly quirky nature of Lüderitz, while for others it is slightly less interesting. Even within our team there are quite polarised views about it!

The response from the Nest Hotel:
‘Thank you for posting your feedback on your stay at our award-winning four-star hotel directly on the rocks and the sea with its own private tidal beach and walk-on jetty – unique in Namibia. I am pleased that you found our service and food offerings good. The vast majority of our guests love our “on the rocks and sea” location. During the last five years, we have carried out a N$Multimillion renovations programme which has attracted highly positive feedback. All our beds are extra-long (2.0metres/6ft6”). Our outdoor heated swimming pool is always open but due to intense evaporation, we have a pool cover installed which can quickly be removed. (two notices around our pool advising our guests to ring a bell that is connected to our Reception).

Please take note: Lüderitz is the founding “mother city” (1883) of Namibia and is rich in German Art Nouveau architecture and is included in leading and reputable tour operator Namibia programmes. Furthermore, the average length of stay is two nights in order to enjoy the many tours and attractions on offer.’

Nice room with sea view.

Very different to the other accommodation we stayed in, being a 73 room hotel and we were just another anonymous pair of guests. That said it was fine for what we wanted.

If we did the trip again we would probably not bother with Lüderitz. A long way to drive (there and back) for not a lot of benefit.

Nest Hotel review

I wish we had eaten our evening meal outside the hotel.

The food in the hotel was disappointing.

Top hotel in great location

An extremely well run hotel with very helpful staff - location and food excellent.

The sea view and sound of the waves right underneath our window were memorable.

Wonderful location and facilities

A very efficiently run and friendly hotel and the meals were excellent.

The location was wonderful with sea views from the bedroom windows along with the continuous sound of the waves below the window.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 day stay here.

Comfortable & a little more formal than most

The clientelle clearly expect a more formal stay at this hotel, which is in a perfect situation on the water's edge. However, we chose to eat out in the evenings, as the restaurant required no shorts etc.

Typical modern hotel right by the sea

Overall a good modern style hotel with usual facilities.

Food plenty of choice, although restaurant was very busy on our second night due to some outside tour groups using it for the food only. Although we had booked a table as had others staying at hotel, it was extremely chaotic with some staff becoming quite agitated.

They had over booked and had to make alternative arrangements for some.

Comfortable business style hotel

Large hotel, slightly lacking in character but in an excellent location on the edge of town perched right above the rocks on the shore of the bay.

Rooms were comfortable although not large and we were disturbed at 4 am by a security alarm in a nearby room which could apparently not be turned off without intervention from Windhoek - not available until breakfast time. There was no mention of the alarm when we checked out and no apology volunteered.

We really enjoyed going to Kolmanskop, a deserted mining town 9km away. Eerie empty buildings gradually filling with sand blown in from the surrounding dunes.
