We stayed 3 nights at the Stiltz in Swakop. Staying in Swakop usually comes with a lot of activities - spending the night in the Stiltz however feels like still being in the desert. Wonderfully arranged venue, high above a ground, with a view on the Atlantic Ocean (comes with the sound a fresh smell of it!). Wonderful breakfast in...

Having arrived in Swakop and after getting over the shock of it being so cold compared to elsewhere in Namibia we were delighted with the Stiltz - especially the electric blanket! We were very well looked after - the breakfast was super and you could choose what you fancied egg wise, which is always a nice touch. It's a wee...

The Stiltz is very nice Lodge type of hotel on the edge of Swakopmund only 200 meters from the sea. The staff was super friendly and always willing to help and assist. Nothing was too much for them. The Chalets are very spacious with great views of the Swakop river towards the sea. The only thing I did not like...

We chose the Stiltz as it boasted good views over the Swakop river estuary and were not dissappointed. The river was dry at the time of our visit but there was still plenty of beach to look at and the location was fairly unique in a town of this size. As the name implies the 'chalets' are built on Stilts...

The chalets/rooms on stilts looking out to sea. Lovely idea. Furnishing is simple and tasteful. A number of african wooden sticks serve as decoration. Beds are hard but amazingly comfortable. The constant sound of breaking waves helps one to sleep beautifully. The wholestructure is wood with high thatch roof. Equipped with small minibar and tea/coffe making facility. One draw back...

"Excellent" is the one word that sums up this place. Excellent people, excellent rooms, excellent breakfast,... It's not only accomodation, "The Stiltz" is really a home away from home. Loved it and if I have the chance, I'll go stay there again any time.

I decided to give a 5 out of 5 because of the lodge excellent value. The stiltz was probably the best priced lodge we stayed at in Namibia. The location may seem a bit odd at first (we arrived late afternoon and it was pouring) but it turned out to be a beautiful and safe location. The staff was extremely...
