“Old and perhaps fading but still a nice hotel.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2014

The hotel stands out in Lobito. It has an impressive look as you drive in. Others told me that this is the best hotel in Lobito, and I can believe them.
It has a comfortable, old 'shabby-chic' feel to it. It must have been very impressive in its old colonial heyday. Now, the large rooms - suites in fact - still have that old colonial feel, and remind me somewhat of the rooms in Raffles Hotel in Singapore. The bathrooms are large and clean, even if some fittings are from a time of older plumbing styles.
The restaurant serves good food, although as it is open to the beach on one side, the birds do tend to profit from the food that is on the buffet counter.
The restaurant looks out over the beach and the beach bar where I have yet to see anyone - client or staff.
The staff are friendly and very accommodating.
Overall - I like this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the ground floor, say 101 to 110, and check that your window bolts are closed at n...

I came to this hotel to spend a day at their beach and beach bar, and it was amazing. The hotel bar on the beach has very good sandwiches and other light food items, that good very well along with a day spent on the sand doing nothing! The sand is kept very clean and everything is thought to promote a relaxing atmosphere.

This is a nice hotel. Its grandeur has faded somewhet but its got an understated coolness. Its got hight ceilings and four poster beds and its got old facilities. The brunch area and beach bar bit is really nice and a bit of an oasis in Lobito. I'd definitely go again. Unfortunately, I heard rumours that it might be modernised....urgh. That would be the end of it.

Clean very ok Hotel. Felt safe and was well looked after. Was recommended by colleagues to pay in $ cash and not use plastic. Food good ish. Beer cold and beachfront very clean. Bedrooms clean. If you charge sensitive electronic kit beware of power surges. Frequent. Take a four gang strip with surge protector. Saves on amount of travel plugs as well.

I travelled as a single woman on a business trip to both Luanda and Lobito - I looked at various hotels and apartments and I can say the Terminus was by far the best - The staff were lovely and friends, the food was nice and Lobito itself is pretty compared to Luanda. I would recommend this hotel

Beautiful colonial-style hotel, just getting somwhat aged now. Prices as usual in Angola: single room +300$ per night.
Restaurant overpriced and nearly no local food available. Nevertheless probably best choice for the time beeing in Lobito.
