We arrived at the Lambert's Bay Hotel on a Saturday evening with no reservation. We were greeted by charming staff on reception who gave us a discount on our room as we stayed for three nights.
The location is fantastic - right on the main road running along the waterfront. There is secure parking and the police station is next door. Unfortunately the police had a very noisy party intil 3am the night we arrived. Our other two nights were very quiet.
Breakfast is good and the choice and quality of evening meals - particularly the seafood - are great. The wait staff have real personality and are a pleasure to talk to. The laundry service is extremely economical. The pool area was small and the pool itself was not terribly inviting.
Our room was okay - fairly old furnishings and smallish twin beds - but certainly comfortable enough. There was a tub and separate shower in the bathroom and we had a small balcony.
I would recommend this hotel.
