We visit the Lambert's Bay every year in March when the Crayfish Festival takes place. We love the charm of the hotel. Staff members are always friendly and helpful. The rooms are spacious and cosy. Buffet breakfast is lovely. We will be back.

R600 for a single room out of season is a cheek ! We booked the same day we arrived there, so it is not even a supply and demand situation. 1) the humming noise from from the factory in front right through the night kept me awake all night long. 2) the bathroom is FILTHY and fittings need replacing -...

Pretty sure the images on the website are photoshopped. Carpets looked like they havent been steam cleaned in years Grimy Mildew and mould on bathroom walls. The overall damp smell was overwhelming throughout the hotel. No Generator for loadshedding, Instead lots of candles placed on the floors and ballustrades. Dangerous if there are kids around. Shower head not attached in... More

We arrived just after 9 in the evening and although there were people in the restaurant we were told that it was closed. Very friendly barman then made us some coffee instead. Bedroom very tired looking but clean. The bathroom however is something else. Bath marked and stained and bath and handbasin has lots of dirt and mould around taps.... More

Lamberts Bay itself is a bit grim and desolate, and the hotel, behind the factories is as good as it gets - there is no reason to complain about the place, the pub is fun, the people friendly and welcoming, the room clean and tidy.

Lambertsbay has always been a fulltime fishing and fish factory village but it is no longer the place it use to be 25 years ago when we last visited. Those were the years when crayfish was still very affordable. Fisherman were quite busy as there was a good Snoek run. The hotel is slightly run down but still clean and... More

The Hotel has clearly seen better days. The rear entrance, from the parking area, is scruffy and dirty with loose wires dangling from the wall. The rooms are below par with threadbare linen. We had requested a room with a shower only to find that the shower was above the bath. and a hazard to use. Unfortunately we had arrived... More

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
