The Langholm Hotel

The Langholm Hotel in Walvis Bay has received accolades as a Winner of the HAN Awards for Service Excellence since 2002 and enjoys annual occupancy levels in excess of 90 percent since 2008. This speaks volumes as to the popularity of our hotel. The Langholm Hotel is situated close to the magnificent wetland of the Walvis Bay Lagoon, and at the edge of the Namib Desert. The Langholm Hotel can offer the Eco-tourist a wonderful glimpse into the ecology of the area, as well as great adventure tourism. The Langholm Hotel has 12 double rooms (ten with double beds, two with twin single beds) each with bathroom en suite, television, telephone, safe and fridge, one triple room (three single beds), one family suite with a lounge and small kitchenette, a luxury room and a luxury suite. The Langholm Hotel offers a gourmet Dinner@Holm a la carte dinner service to its guests every Sunday through Friday night - the menu changes weekly and features a Chef's Special too, has a very festive bar - The NightCap - which boasts a collection of nearing 2000 caps/hats and a lounge where one can chill out in relative peace and quiet with a drink of one’s choice. Secure covered parking and both indoor and outdoor braai facilities are also available.

Langholm History

Bruce and Charmaine Stewart designed and built the Langholm Hotel in 1996 on two erven which were consolidated adjoining the single erf upon which they built the house for their family. Originally the Langholm offered 8 double rooms, 2 twin rooms and a family suite. On moving to another family home in 2004 they left their daughter, a qualified Silwood Kitchen trained Cordon Bleu chef, in the house with her family. Two of the rooms of the house, both en suite, were added to the hotel’s portfolio of rooms to let.

In 2005 Nic Adams bought the hotel and took occupation towards the end of April. With the assistance of Jeanette Stewart, who stayed on as Assistant Manager, Nic quickly learnt the intricacies of hands on hotel management. Occupancy rates were around 40% at the time he bought the hotel. After Jeanette moved on to mothering her young family the remainder of the house was extensively renovated and a double room, a luxury room and a luxury suite were added to the Langholm’s portfolio of rooms now totalling sixteen. Many late nights and very long days (some 18 to 20 hours long, day after day) set a foundation for the guests staying at the Langholm knowing that their best interests were being looked after and both them and Nic were enjoying the time spent together. Special theme evenings – curry nights, braai nights and watching sport on TV over weekends etc. - became really popular. Today we can boast that well over 80% of the guests staying at the Langholm have stayed with us before. A gourmet "Dinner@Holm"a la carte dinner service is also offered Sunday thru Friday night to our guests to ensure that dinner is available to those who will spoil themselves with a wonderful meal without having to venture out at night.

As a result of our attention to detail being a passion, the comfortable rooms at the Langholm are consistently redecorated, repainted, regularly decked out with new bedding, new curtaining and new linen - only 100% cotton percale - and the bathrooms also receive a facelift every now and then, as occupancy levels have allowed. This has ensured that we have maintained our focus on taking care of our core business and we are committed to continue doing what we do best, offering a “holm away from home” for our guests.
