We arrived late and they couldn't have been more amenable. I highly recommend getting a 'First Floor Room' as they are literally right on the ocean. Sleeping with the balcony door ajar and hearing the sound of the ocean - WONDERFUL. Cutely - they say internet is COMPLETELY DEPENDENT ON NAMIBIA TELECOM - and I must say I agree -...

Rooms are spacious. Great potential. Carpets badly stained, bathroom needs serious upgrade. Cleaning is an issue. When we mentioned the cleaning issue, the room was cleaned well. One should not take a housekeeping job in order to get a clean room. There is no complimentary water in the room. Some of the staff is ok but most are just going...

I really love Luderitz as my goal is to speed kitesurf. I have stayed at Nest Hotel for 14 days 2013 - 2017. I really have felt incredibly welcome and wonderful service from all employees.

I've been traveling to Luderitz regularly in the last 5 years and the Nest Hotel feels like home to me. They care about you and your needs, the holtel crew is so kind and rooms are comfortable, with all that you could need. Recommended, and Luderitz itself has a lot of hidden gems too.

Stay here because you want to hear the ocean and wake up to an absolutely gorgeous setting. It's also not expensive (you'd pay the same a similar figure at a City Lodge in RSA). Don't stay if you're after luxury and top service (the luxury is the setting / view) Having read the previous, helpful, reviews we felt 'armed' for...

Well, the views from the rooms are great and the AC is fantastic, but some of the staff needs to be retrained. The man at the front desk who checked us in seemed pretty bummed to be there and couldn't crack a smile if his life depended on it. Perhaps he was having a bad day. The restaurant took forever...

We stayed over one night as the intention was to visit Kolmanskop. The hotel's location is awesome as it is right on the water but it feels and sounds (read: the lift) a little dated.

Poor wifi and some distance from town do not help this hotel. The service was acceptable but disinterested, the food ok and the rooms basic but clean. All in all ok, and probably the best you will get there.

The staff at this establishment were are very friendly and helpfull. The rooms are a bit worn for a 4 star hotel - sheets are nice a fresh but the bathrooms need a revamp. Restaurant and lounge are both top notch and the breakfast is EXCELLENT. Setting is as perfect as you can possibly get. Thumbs up!
