    There is a weird, almost surreal feel to Lüderitz, a town with cloudy skies, an angry sea and houses built on rocks on the edge of the Namib Desert. The Nest Hotel offers a stark contrast to the broody atmosphere of this diamond town: impossibly bright, the 4-star hotel is painted a plastic toy yellow and orange and is an anomaly next to the grey waters of Lüderitz Bay.

    Looking past the 80’s fake wood interior, this large 70-room establishment is rather like an eccentric uncle — not really fitting in, but endearing in his slightly faded attire. The hotel is lacking energy and personality, but soft refurbishment is underway and will update the look to a more contemporary and fresher feel.

    The hotel’s long list of amenities include free and fast in-room Wi-Fi, heated towel rails, satellite flat screen HDTV and extra large beds. The three suites have king-size beds and separate lounges, and families are accommodated in inter-connecting rooms. There are three rooms for mobility impaired guests. All rooms have a sea view and the loud rush of waves is just outside the billowing curtains.

    Nest Hotel has two pools (including one children’s pool) in the hotel’s grassy courtyard, complete with palm trees and colourful loungers, and a there is a small sandy beach within a few meters of the hotel restaurant’s terrace. Hotel services include airport transfers and booking of activities and day trips.

    There are a couple of redeeming aspects to the Nest Hotel – its proximity to the ocean and the delectable breakfast buffet. The extensive breakfast buffet menu is, well, extensive. Starting with bubbly on one side, fare range from the usual hot suspects — eggs, meats, sausages — to cold options such as cereals, freshly baked German breads, toppings, cheeses, and jams. Dinner, however, was average and unimaginative. The hotel’s Penguin restaurant offered less than expected at a price higher than expected.  Staff seemed nervous and the seafood was not what one should expect at a seaside restaurant. However the setting with view of the ocean was magnificent, and individual chats with staff members provided insights in the personality of the town.

    Nest Hotel with all its faded finery, still appeals and somehow complements the mysterious allure of this strange town.
