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.

A modern international hotel

A well-appointed modern room.

It looked over the car park, but at least we could see the ocean beyond.

We had an excellent meal at The Ocean Cellar, with the meatiest oysters I have ever had, and very good kingklip.

Did the job

Broke the journey down the Skeleton coast. Staff very friendly, rooms clean but felt just like any other corporate style hotel.

We spent one day kayaking with seals and walking around the town (recommend quirky museum) and then got out of there as fast as we could.

Great seaside location

We really enjoyed this as a short break from the camps and great place to catch up with the football !!
Teenage boys enjoyed the beer and burgers.

Breakfast buffet was the best we have EVER had and we are pretty extensively travelled.

Staff in the restaurants were a bit ditzy, not very attentive or switched on!! Only thing which let this place down.

Strand Hotel review

Great location next to the beach & boardwalk & super short walk from the city center.

Rooms were nice & comfortable & I liked working out in the gym. We ate at two of their restaurants & food was a little better than average.

One minor complaint that is probably specific to our room was that there was a bad smell coming from the bathroom (maybe from the pipes)? We were too lazy to change rooms & we couldn't smell in when we shut the door to the toilet, so wasn't a huge deal to us.
