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...

A restful stop in Swakopmund in this great B&B. Very friendly staff & super breakfasts. Nothing is too much trouble.

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...

We stayed here for 2 days during a trip around Namibia. We had one room for the adults and a family room for 3 children. We would reccomend this very highly as everyone was friendly and helpful. The owner helped us get tables at local restaurants. Incredible rooms, very clean with great views and also good shower rooms. Would like...

Good location on the edge of town by the coast but within easy reach (5 min walk) of the town and local restaurants. Lovely individual huts/rooms on stilts - a lot of thought/attention put into designing them. Great shower and electric blanket in the bed! They only served breakfast but it was a good one!

We stayed at the Stiltz for 2 nights as part of a mainly camping tour of Namibia. We stayed in room 6, which is almost certainly the best located room, with excellent views over the lagoon, sea and dunes. On arrival the receptionist could not have been more helpful. She immediately offered to make restaurant reservations, and organise activities for...

Our experience at the Stiltz was quite opposite from some of the others here on this website. We loved the Stiltz and had been anticipating our stay. I booked directly with the lodge and requested a very specific room, #6. We had no problems booking and I even e-mailed for suggestions for dinner and they made reservations for us. We...
