After an 8 hours drive from Damaraland this place was just what we needed. Beside the sea with the waves and wind to revive you and really down to earth and friendly staff to welcome us it was great set up. Each cabin has a feeling of its own little world and the walkways joining the cabins add a great...

Stayed here for 3 nights in one of the 'seaview rooms (6,7,8). We choose this place for its small number of rooms and unusual stilled construction as something different . We had room 8 which was OK but think room 7 has the best views of both sea and lagoon and is the least overlooked. Initally I wanted to leave...

I enjoyed my stay, nice set up with the cabins and walkways. No problems with noise (we were in the middle of the walkway). The staff were very helpfull, probably the freindliest we met in our Namibia trip. The room was all wood columns and thatch. Nothing wrong, but I think that they could do with a redecortion. Tea and...

The Stiltz villa is well kitted out, comprising of 3 rooms and a large lounge area. The facilities are good, and each bed has an electric blanket which is needed as the room is quite cool. It is located at the edge of Swakopmund boasting great views of the ocean and the river. The breakfasts are of good quality. I...

I have just been looking through our photographs from a wonderful holiday last year and it has roused me to write a review of this wonderful place. We were on a three week self drive safari with young-ish kids (10 and 6) and were mixing accomodation between camping and lodges. We tied in our stay in Swakopmund with the excellent...

We stayed at The Stiltz for 6 nights in March for a family wedding having spent 6 nights in Cape Town . It is essentially a B&B so they only provide breakfast (which we were aware of - but it was good). The rooms (we were in Bungalow 3) are fantastic. I loved the smell of warm wood each time...

The Stiltz is a unique proposition. Built into the mouth of the Swakop river the rooms are on stilts (hence the name) above the river bed. The view from our bungalow (no 6) was directly into the estuary and had some lovely views over the reed beds. We came here on our honeymoon, however, and in every place we stayed...

Not really a hotel, just (admittedly pretty) rooms for rent plus an average breakfast. We arrived late in the day after a long drive, to stay for a pre-booked two nights. Only the security chap was on duty, who was helpful and polite. No power in the room, so he provided us with a portable lights. Luckily I understand electrics...

My husband and I stayed at The Stilz recently during a 7 day stay in Namibia. I had looked at the website and was greatly looking forward to our 2 night stay there. I did however look on tripadvisor a few days before going and was therefore a bit concerned about the mixed reviews. On arrival we were shown to...
