Severin Sea Lodge
Ranked #3 of 14 Hotels in Bamburi
Reviewed 14 November 2013

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.

This hotel is a brilliant place to stay, Just come back from 2 weeks there, the service, staff rooms are brilliant. The rooms have just been refurbished and are cool clean and comfortable. The food good, a mixture of a la carte and buffet loads to choose from, slow service at times when busy but if you are in a hurry let the staff know and they will be double quick. The manager was brilliant he donated lots of surplus supplies to our charitly to help out a local orphanage. Just to mention too the all important air conditioning was amazing never let us down was clean and comfortable and did not get the usual throat thing going on, so well serviced thanks to adam's company http://www.panashcoairconditioning.com
I have been to Kenya 3 times in 18 months now, stayed in differing hotels and apart from the amazingly expensive white sands I cannot fault this hotel. You won't be dissapointed. Thanks to management and staff for making our stay one to remember x

I just checked to see it was convenient but not at all, there are more hotels with same service and better prices (half of it). The only nice thing is the pool facing the ocean and its garden, but if you are in another hotel and going there for a drink is the same....

We stayed at the Severin Sea Lodge in May 2013 as it was one of the few hotels in the north coast offered by Thomson. Stayed bed and breakfast, breakfast was perfectly adequate but we felt the food in the evenings was expensive and not that spectacular so we ate out most nights. The bar prices were expensive too so if not out at a local bar we drank our own alcohol in our room.... We felt this was a shame as we probably missed getting to know the staff and it didn't feel quite as relaxing as previous holidays in Kenya.
The superior room was lovely and we were very happy with it. Fab bathroom, comfortable beds and good air conditioning. One major irritation was the unreliability of the free wifi. It didn't work at all in our room and was intermittent in the bar areas. We had to change our password several times which meant waiting round the cash office for long periods as most staff did not seem to know how to deal with problems with the system.
Would not go back as we have felt more comfortable elsewhere but it would suit some people fine.

I spent a few days here with a friend recently and overall was what I expected. The reservation team in Germany were very helpful and even upgraded our room. I found the staff throughout the hotels extremely accommodating and friendly making guests feel welcome. Premises were well kept and spacious. The only downside are all the local Beach boys selling their wares which discourage you from spending too much time hanging on the beach. Overall would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for good value in Mombasa.

Room Tip: Book through the reservation center in Germany
