Stayed at Burning Shore for 3 nights. The rooms are spacious and clean. The friendly staff make you feel welcome and are pleased to assit. Excellent sea views from the bedroom and balcony. The bedroom linnen and Towels were crisp and changed daily. Restaurant offers a good menu which is reasonably priced. What a great place!

Yes, this is the place Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie chose when they stayed in Namibia to welcome their first child together. This is a bed and breakfast in a great location righ on the beach, but quite a drive from swakopmund or walvis bay,the latter not worth a visit, and the former a quaint German town. The rooms were spacious albeit in need of a renovation. The carpets in the common areas threadbare ,the overall maintenance not up to standard .the hosts were nice and helpful ,but the location is what may put people off. You need a car to get around as taxis are unreliable. All tours and excursions recommended and booked were very good.

Actually set in the toytown development of Landstrand, some 15km north of the town and roughly half way to Swakopmund, this place hit the headlines when it bizarrely became the spot in which Brad and Angelina decided to stay whilst having their first child.

As a frequent visitor to namibia and particularly Swakopmund over the last several years, I decided that due to all the hype surrounding this place I would give it a try. The hype being the fact that Brad and Agelina stayed there a few years back for the week. The Hotel itself is set right on the beach front, but it is in a really strange area of development, which kind of resembles Toytown. The area is quite upmarket place, with lots of upmarket holiday homes surrounding it, but there is nothing to do other than walk the beach. If you want to get anything you need to drive 20 minutes into Swakopmund itself.

The Hotel accommodation is very comfortable and is comprised of five luxury suites, the one i rented even had a jacuzzi. Downstairs there is an comfortable lounge and dining area which has a garden. The food and service were pretty good, but you can only handle the same Restaurant a couple of times, hence the need to get out and go into town. Which by the way has some excellent Restaurant options.

Although it is a comfortable and reliable option, i cant see myself staying there again, as I much prefer to base myself in nearby Swakopmund.

Room Tip: They are all good rooms with great sea views

Was in Namibia for two months...started and ended my stay at the Burning Shore. The bad hype is behind this property- excellent, friendly staff, lovely accomodations, and a great restaurant to boot! Exactly mid-way between Swakopmund and Walvis Bay in an area known as Langstrand, an upscale residential beach community. Dune riding and kayaking very nearby. Rates were not extremely high, as might be expected of a beach-side resort of this caliber, in this part of the world. Can't say enough about how attentive everyone was.

Room Tip: Each room has its own charm. I enjoyed the Bay Room, just above the entrance to the restaurant. Kind...

We had such a wonderful stay at Burning Shore! The staff is professional and friendly, the establishment is clean & tidy, the security was great, and we felt really at home there! The breakfast was delicious, with a wide variety of treats to choose from! If you're looking for warm hospitality, a home away from home, and a gem in the desert, THIS IS IT!!!!!!

We visited The Burning Shore for holidays a week ago and we were surprised after reading all the bad reviews. We enjoyed our stay and were very happy with all the services and we dont have any complaints. Please dont see it as the Brangelina five star hotel, just see it as a normal Namibian hotel for normal people who can afford to stay there.
