Krabbenhoft & Lampe - National Monument & Accommodation

Traveller (3)
Room & Suite (14)
Family and Play Areas (5)
The Krabbenhöft & Lampe main building is over 100 years old and one of Namibia’s National Heritage Monuments. It is in this extraordinary setting that we provide accommodation which offers the unique atmosphere of an antique house with many hints and tell-tale signs of history which have accumulate over its time. While the ground floor is still used for trading and storage, the first and second floors offer three spacious self-catering apartments containing wooden floors, high ceilings, antique wooden window frames and a still present history in many aspects. The accommodation however is certainly not comparable to the luxury of most modern guesthouses. Present without most luxuries offered elsewhere, it is homely, antique and special. It will welcome guests who have a love and respect for such things, but it may disappoint when expectations compare to modern luxurious standards. There are no lifts, only wooden stairs.

The building is fantastic, we loved the old wooden stairs, the flair, the fact the Diaz Coffee Shop and Oyster Bar is just next door! Virginia and her team are great. Our mattresses were new and we enjoyed every minute. Nice location.

Its a nice house,which is historically great, and well maintained, however, the bedding and all furniture is very old. The room with a balcony that we booked was given to someone else, and we got a choice to either move in after one day, or take another apartment. Its fine to

We chickened out of camping at Shark Island at the last minute because of strong winds. The staff here accommodated us at short notice and were friendly. We were assigned the top floor which was a huge four bed apartment. On the surface things were fine but everything was all

Lovely to live in a national monument. Beautiful woodwork. Quaint rooms. Great facility for a group to self cater. Eateries within walking distance. Windy town. Pop over to Kolmanskop to see ghost town. Why we weren't allowed into Elizabeth's Bay. Grocery Shopping good.
