Our rating: 4/5 Stars
Location: Swakopmund, Namibia

Accommodation Description

Rooms, spotless and tasteful, come in a variety of sizes and configurations, most of them sea-facing, and are equipped with the modern hotel’s in-house conveniences like wi-fi, flat-screen TV, international plug points, air conditioning and, to be on the safe side you’ve got a mini-bar and room service. You get the impression they really want you to eat, drink and sleep well at the Strand Hotel. And so you shall.

The Brewer & Butcher is clearly building on the Brauhaus and Kucki’s success stories. A lively place to enjoy traditional Namibian food which is, by turn, influenced by German food so except jolly portions of Eisbein sidestepping trays of cascading bierkrüge held aloft. The Welwitschia bar, lounge and terrace is equally pleasant in the middle of winter or those (ahem, rather rare it must be said) warm days as are the Farmhouse Deli and the Pavillion for a more informal munch-and-go deal. The Ocean Cellar is The Strand’s signature restaurant and presents an exciting and much-needed quality seafood restaurant to balance out Swakopmund’s meat-heavy palate. The sushi is excellent as are the oysters and, like all the eating options, you can see, hear, smell and even taste the sea. Or you can turn and face the show kitchen and enjoy that oh-so-soothing experience of watching a team of experts at work.
