We stayed at this hotel for 1 night, after a long backroad drive from Windhoek, so we were really looking forward to arriving. Check in was smooth and painfree. The rooms are quite nice, not 5 star, but definitely the 4 star that this Protea has attached to it. The furniture has a beach feel about it, making it feel like a proper holiday hotel. We had a ground floor room which was really lovely, as you can open your door and walk straight over a small piece of grass to the edge of the Lagoon. Although the Walvis bay harbour is right next door, it wasn't noisy at all. Breakfast was really good here. We didnt have dinner at the hotel, we went nextdoor to the Raft restaurant which was fantastic as well. We saw Dolphins, Flamingos and Pelicans. The Wi-fi doesnt work at all, we tried it in all places and could not get a connection at all. Staff were friendly and would suggest this hotel for those wanted to stay out of the main towns of swakopmund and Walvis bay. It really was worth the stay.
