It's wonderful and very relaxing. Though very expensive for drinks and food. The breakfast has rather no German affiliation, there is no good cheese and cold cuts as what we expect from a German hotel. The service is friendly but it takes time. The rooms are excellent if you are booked in the superior category. Unfortunately no one speaks the French language so the future is non French speaking clients for the Severin.

Stayed October 2013, traveled with family

I recently stayed at Severin Sea Lodge and I found the hotel very very nice, staff were very friendly rooms were large and clean and the food was excellent. The swimming pool and the grounds were very well cared for. Definitely worth a visit.

Room Tip: I stayed in the higher rooms and found the view was excellent

i went with a few friends for one night as we were moving on to the south coast...
the rooms were amazing and clean ...we got upgraded to the superior room, which was nice and had a view of the pool and the sea.
the swing bar was my favourite place in the hotel... it over looks the beach and sea and was great for a sundowner drink.
we got great service and hospitality.
the only thing I did not like was the breakfast.... but all in all was a great hotel.

Room Tip: get a superior room

We ahd been to Kenya to see friends and as part of the flight deal we had a one night stop in Mombassa as we had an early flight to UK.
When we had taken this before we had been placed in a not very nice hotel and an awful room.
What a surprise the Severin Sea Lodge was. We will certainly return here and use as a base for a safari holiday.
Room was excellent, staff were friendly, food in the a la carte was not only excellent quality but excellent value. Oscar the waiter was very funny insisting he was 6' 3'' when in reality he was 5'10''. It was a very funny evening and we really enjoyed it. Nice guests as well.

Visited here end of Sept/ start of October and booked here with Thomson. Excellent value for money and great rooms and pool. Watch out for the monkeys, really funny and cute but will steal anything.

We came here B&B which I would recommend, I think we might have got a little bored of the buffet.

On arrival our room was upgraded, really nice service in the hotel and really helpful.
