There's not much choice around this area, but considering, we were satisfied with the room and the beach balcony view. Room equipped with usuals and spacious enough. Wifi was weak but seemed to work better in the lounge area. Dinner was included with the room fee and I felt it could have been a lot better. It didn't taste that...

It's location says it all really. Situated on a lonely section of the skeleton coast yet just a few km from the coastal road and nearby Fur Seal colony this is an ideal stopover or for a few nights stay. Our reception was very friendly and we were promptly shown to our two adjacent and interconnecting rooms. The room was...

We cannot recommand more this place. After our car broke down while driving on the Skeleton Cost, we were wonderfully welcomed by the manager and all the staff, who offered us a discount on the room and helped us with all the administrative trouble. The manager even drove us herself to the Seal Colony while we were waiting for our...

This is absolutely NO place to stay or to eat! The rooms are dirty and badly maintained. Dinner and breakfast were unsatisfactory. There is absolutely no value for money. It was the worst experience on our trip through Namibia.

The rooms are clean and spacious but fairly basic. Nice views onto the ocean and far enough away from the seal colony that you do not get the associated smells. The restaurant was very good for the evening meal and breakfast was basic but good.

Beautiful spot on the coast and the rooms are lovely all with a balcony over looking the sea. Dinner and breakfast included, tea, coffee and cake - on tap during the day! Management were lovely and very attentive. Minor item was that due to a wedding taking place the following day the marquee blocked part of our view of the...

Fantastic staff. Steve, the manager, was very gracious. We were the only guests at the hotel. It was off-season. The hotel is perfectly situated next to the seal colony. The food was fantastic and the room was very comfortable and roomy.

Such an atmospheric location...isolated, on the beach, the lodge was a great place to break the journey between Walvis Bay and Terrace Bay. The room was large with plenty of character, and plenty of hot water in the massive bathroom. Saw seals and porpoises as the sun was setting...magical. Dinner was a surprisingly delicious set menu, and there was enough...
