We spent 2 days here. This is an old hotel. It is spotlessly clean. The food is very good. Delicious buffet breakfast. An excellent dinner. Good value for money.The staff will go overboard to assist. They have secure parking. This is a small fishing village. A way to relax and unwind.

Very friendly staff, helpfull and friendly. Restaurant great for breakfast and other meals, had a great dinner. Some of the linen need replacement. But all and all a comfortable 2 days stay. Only place in the world where one can walk to an island full of thousands of breeding Gannets, from the hotel.

We spent 2 nights in a family room at the hotel, which we found was well kept with very friendly and helpful frontline and banqueting staff . The bedding was fresh...it still smelled of fabric softener, which is something that I very much appreciate. The buffet breakfasts had a fair amount of variety, although once the flapjacks are done, the... More

A friend was visiting from the UK and we decided to explore the west coast! As we had no real plans, did not book a room. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. Whilst not the most modern hotel, the room was clean and comfortable. For the price one is paying ( about the same as some backpackers) breakfast included,... More

A bit dated, but convenient, comfortable, and a restaurant serving huge and beautiful beef steaks at very reasonable prices. The breakfast, included in room price, was good, adequate, and served by pleasant staff with one waitress serenading terribly out of tune to her favorite CD plugged into the boom box-cum-music stage.

We stopped at Lamberts Bay on our way up to Namibia as my husband wanted to see this part of the coast. There is not much accommodation in Lamberts Bay to choose from. The room was OK - a bit musty smelling but the bed was comfy and clean. We had dinner in the restaurant - I had the west... More

I stayed at Lamberts Bay (Baii) Hotel on a weekend. The hotel is operated by the owner, it is a fantastic place to stay if you were traveling in that part of the world. The staff were super nice and friendly, room was clean and comfortable, and food was great. I had a fantastic weekend.

We stayed here for one night as part of a tour. It is a good basic hotel with comfortable rooms, kettle, coffee/tea, lots of hot water, comfy beds and good bedside lighting. Free WiFi in lobby area only. A few minutes walk to the gannet breeding area. Restaurant & bar on premises and across the street. There is little else... More

I stayed for one night in early October. This hotel is clean and comfortable, if a bit old-fashioned. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the food at The Lobster Pot restaurant at the hotel is good. You should try the local lobster (crayfish). Breakfast is also substantial and tasty - especially the savoury mince (which I found seems... More
