My wife and I visited the pub on Sunday afternoon. Both the Barman and change of shift Barlady were friendly polite and gave us an excellent insight of Lamberts Bay. We loved the vibe & atmosphere in the pub especially all of the fun posters on the walls which were impressive and made us laugh. Later on one of the... More

Started in 1888, then known at the Marine Hotel, this is the only proper hotel in this small holiday resort /fishing / potato chip factory/ crayfish festival / etc town. There have been many makeovers and it is currently comfortable, modern and light. The outside of the hotel is unpromising. Most upstairs rooms have balconies and mine included several pretty...

We arrived on a quiet Sunday afternoon. Because there is no secure parking we needed to bring all our luggage inside with us. As we're on a 19 day road trip there was quite a lot. My husband had an accident some days earlier & was struggling with walking. However, the receptionist put us in a second floor room, with... More

When in Lamberts Bay, this hotel is close enough to the beach and small harbor area and is a convenient stop for travelers passing through. It is from the mid 1950's era and has kept that charm. The hotel has a bar area with television and can get quite busy with local visitors when national sport events are taking place.... More

Lamberts Bay Hotel is old, just what we expected. We wanted an unusual stay in an unusual town and that is what we got. Although the hotel was old fashioned it had so much history which was really interesting, it was clean and neat. The staff were friendly and helpful, the meals served at the hotel were awesome. The pub... More

Owning and running a Country Hotel is not for the faint hearted. Very pleasantly surprised by the friendlinessof the staff,the overall cleanliness and wonderful personality of this coastal hotel. The bedroom had everything required for a comfortable night. A bedroom with a balcony was a big plus. Breakfast offered variety and was well cooked and presented. The overall impression was... More

The Hotel is old and the decor is not modern but the rooms are clean but very basic. The food in the hotel restaurant was excellent and we also had breakfast(AT 8am) on New... More

The hotel service was excellent food was top class. Our room was not of the best when it came to cleanliness the carpet could do with a wash and the sheets a bit of an iron. The skirtings aling the hallways were black and have not seen a feather duster in months. The carpets were badly stained. Overall the owners... More

The exhibition of the hotel on the net is furthest from reality. We requested double rooms and were given singles. Our room was next to the bar and was extremely noisy. Hotel is very old and so are the furniture and fittings. Not appealing whatsoever. Went out and looked at 2 different B&B and these did not have the 3... More
