Great stay at Strand Hotel

Excellent two night stay here. We were upgraded to a seaview room on request which we appreciated. Very comfortable, tastefully decorated and nicely equipped.

Spa was an unexpected surprise. Arranged a treatment at short notice, which was of good quality.

Ate at the seafood restaurant both nights and thoroughly enjoyed both meals. Delicious food and very nice welcoming staff.

Nice location, easy to find.

Strand Hotel review

Great location. Felt safe walking to and from the hotel at night. Nice hotel, modern and clean (albeit some premature signs of ageing / poor cleaning quality in the bathroom) but felt quite corporate and impersonal.

Check in was quick and efficient and the member of staff was very helpful in advising on things to do during our stay. Breakfast selection was superb, loads of choice but I would have liked to have been able to order off menu. Breakfast drinks service could be improved as was slow and it was necessary to seek the attention of staff.

We were very disappointed with the view from the room. We upgraded to an ocean view room. Whilst we technically did have a view of the ocean, we had to look across the large car park and the glass roof of the restaurant to see it, which generally wasn't a pretty sight and not one I would have upgraded to had I known. Had very good food and service at onsite fish restaurant.

A really super place to stay

It was so different to stay in a hotel within a resort town after a week of lodges, but we really welcomed the contrast. The Strand was excellent - great facilities, beautiful room and a huge variety of options for breakfast. The on-site bar with micro brewery was also a big win.

Although it was so much bigger than the other places we stayed and less personal, they still made a huge effort as we were on honeymoon, with rose petals on the bed, a bottle of fizz and strawberries and cream!

We had a great time in Swakopmund and really enjoyed the lower temperatures! We tried lie down sandboarding which was great fun (which we'd organised ourselves with Alter Action, who were very good) and then had a beautiful walk round the lagoon at Walvis Bay and saw lots of flamingos.

It was great to be on a B&B basis in Swakop so that we could venture out to try a couple of different restaurants and have a bit more freedom in what we wanted to eat!

Strand Hotel review

Brownie Points well earned.

After a few days of longish drives, this is a great place to get to, take a massage, eat some great seafood and indulge in some retail therapy, possibly should have stayed longer.

Rooms are excellent, staff were amazing, Spa was great and the restaurants (great breakfast) are very good, but this is not why we are here.

Good modern hotel with excellent breakfasts

Comfortable spacious modern rooms and a good range of eating establishments attached to the hotel which channels a German vibe; we enjoyed very good seafood at the fish restaurant, tasty schnitzel at the sports bar and the most incredible breakfast buffet I have ever seen in my life in the brasserie. They even had Sachertorte. Bonkers!

Staff were faultless: couldn't do enough to help especially Beverly in the Brasserie who made a special take away packed lunch for my son with a nut allergy.

Strand Hotel review

Particularly impressed by the genuinely friendly but professional service and by the quality of food in the seafood restaurant.

We stayed 3 nights which on reflection was too long. Swakopmund itself does not quite feel like Africa but we knew that before we went. Recommend the fat bike tour into the desert.

One small point was that my wife didn’t like the wild birds flying around inside the restaurant .....

Strand Hotel review

This hotel was very comfortable and had great laundry facilities.

Our concierge Jeffrey was excellent and went out of his way to arrange a scenic flight to fit in with our schedule. He was exceptionally helpful with giving us information on the locality and made great recommendations.

We would recommend travellers use the opportunity whilst staying here to have the inside of the car cleaned of the dust collected whilst driving on the dirt roads to Swakopmund.

Strand Hotel review

The rooms were lovely and the staff very attentive.

Service in the Farmhouse Deli restaurant was haphazard and slow.

Breakfast was ok but nothing special.
