“Great staff, comfortable but no frills room”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2010

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.

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2009

The Lamberts Bay Hotel was definitely the poorest establishment we stayed at during our road trip through Namibia and the Northern Cape of South Africa. The hotel was totally overrun by a group of bikers that smoked up a storm in the lobby area causing the entire hotel to reek of cigarette smoke. We complained about the cigarette smoke stench in our allocated room and were upgraded to the honeymoon suite. The linen did not fit the bed; it was a king sized bed with double bed linen. The “fitted sheet” was a double bed flat sheet laid over the mattress. The shower did not have enough water pressure to work. Room service took an hour to make a toasted sandwich.
On the bright side, the restaurant is really good and the food was excellent. I would recommend the smoked Snoek pate with Rooibos bread as well as the Calamari.

Stayed September 2009, travelled as a couple
