A Delightful stay in Swakopmund

The Delight hotel is situated in a convenient central location in the town, opposite the old railway station and close by the Kristall Gallery, both places being recommended to visit.It is also a relatively short walk from the waterfront area and some historic monuments. The hotel has a pleasant landscaped central courtyard with rooms overlooking it that are very comfortable and well equipped. Front desk and service staff were very welcoming and helpful and parking was no problem. One of their font desk staff, Denise, was extremely helpful in recommending an excellent restaurant for dinner in one of the other hotels and was able to book us a table on a busy night. The hotels small lounge area was a pleasant place to relax.
The breakfast quality was good, although some of the made to order breakfast items were slow in being served and some were forgotten.

A good base in Swakopmund

A modern hotel with well appointed rooms and within easy reach of the town centre, restaurants and coast. We stayed for 3 nights to give ourselves the opportunity to make the most of the activities available locally.

Heading out to Pelican Point from Walvis Bay and kayaking with the young seals was great fun. We saw loads of flamingos, pelicans and other sea birds as well as a Jackal.

Day 2 was a trip out for the Sandwich Harbour Experience along the beach and through the coastal dunes. Lots of sea birds, jackals enjoying a seal carcass, ostrich, springbok etc. Rudi from Turnstone Tours was excellent - very informative. and interesting. We also had a wonderful lasagna for lunch among the dunes.

Lots of secure parking at the hotel and a delightful young lady on reception who helped us to sort out some confusion over one of our activities. The hotel only serves breakfast, but there are plenty of places to eat within reach.

Pack your warm clothes

On our first night we were freezing cold and asked to be moved. It as full so they moved us the next day. Remember to take warm clothes with you - it can be really cold. No dinner available but breakfast was excellent and dining out was easy and inexpensive.

Great Swakopmund stop

Unusual to stay in a 100 room hotel in Namibia, but we liked it a lot.

Well designed public areas, good room, great location, friendly efficient staff.

The Delight review

What a brilliant place to stay in Swakopmund. Very easy to find and in a central location which allowed us to explore Swakop very easily.

The rooms were perfect (we were lucky to have a room backing onto the secure car park), the staff were very helpful (especially Steven and his friend who did not hesitate to help us to change a tyre in the hotel's secure car park at 7am!!!)

The breakfast was excellent.

No complaints at all and we would definitely stay here again!!
