"The Delight review"

2 nights Arrived 22 Jul 2017
"Clean, nice, big bright rooms. View not very interesting but balconies make up for it.

Definitely the best breakfasts in Namibia or at least of our entire trip.

Good location, a bit boring but within easy walking distance from wherever you want to go in Swakop." See all these reviews: 12n in Namibia

"Delightful stay at the Delight."

2 nights Arrived 10 Apr 2017
"This is a modern hotel near the old railway station and had a very unique layout and ambiance. Location was very good, easy access and a short walk to the beach.

The rooms were oriented to beach holiday visitors with plenty of space and amenities. The breakfasts were terrific and our room was especially spacious with a loft and cathedral ceiling.

Secure parking was provided" See all these reviews: 22n in Namibia

"The Delight review"

2 nights Arrived 4 Apr 2017
"The Delight is very new and we were impressed by the design and attention to detail throughout. For instance every room has a fridge and extras such as a large umbrella. The rooms were large and comfortable with fun decor. The buffet breakfast was particularly good and even included oysters and bubbly! There were few negatives but we did arrive shortly before a large coach trip which meant that no-one seemed to be available to help us with our luggage or to find our rooms.
