Very good. Just what was needed and `The Tug`restaurant across the way was good too. We had a great time here.

The hotel is quite luxurious and has nice views of the Atlantic Ocean. Staff are friendly and helpful and there is off-street parking. Within easy walking distance to several nice restaurants, as well as the jetty.

Very glad we visited Walvis Bay and went on a Dolphin Tour. The room was very nice; the food was good but we should have gone out and tried other restaurants more. It was nice to have a fridge so that we could store some of our own food and not go to restaurants for every meal.
