We have been there "and got the T-shirt". Lovely stop-over. We were frustrated that the borders were closed. Covid. Will go back when we can. Everything was comfortable and staff pleasant. You feel as if you are in the middle of nowhere ...

We stopped for a beer on our way to Keetmanshoop. Next time we want to stay here in stead of Keetmanshoop. Seeheim is only the hotel and it just appears charming to stay here. There was also a number of people camping.

This was our first stop in Namibia on a road trip and we were looking forward to the beautiful hotel we saw in the pics online. What a huge disappointment. The gravel road to the hotel was in quite a bad state. Our room was less than comfortable and our bed was the worst I had ever slept in! The pool was empty, but as this is their winter, we understood the reason. As there were no tv's in the rooms, the younger members of our party were very bored, as there was absolutely nothing for them to do. The receptionist Jeanette deserves a mention for her pleasant handling of our booking and booking in procedure. I do believe much of the hotel had been gutted in a fire a year before, and it is understandable that this might well have impacted in a large way, but the pictures online was very deceiving. Our supper was less than average. But as there are no other shops, cafes or restaurants in the vicinity, we had no choice. Seeheim consists of the hotel and the railway station only.

If you are looking for an average city hotel or tourist resort experience then stay in your car and drive right on past, because you won't find it here. But, if you want a real, rural Namibia vibe, great food and oodles of character then you will love the Seeheim Hotel. It's like Hotel California crossed with the Royal Hotel, where anything might happen. We stayed only one night on a road trip through Southern Namibia and I'm so glad that we did. After a long drive across the Kalahari from the Kgalagadi it was a welcoming and wonderfully restful stopover en-route to Luderitz. The bar is real country style with so many ornaments and trophies on the wall, each one with a story to tell. For those who are squeamish about hunting, maybe the bar is best avoided, but this is Namibia and it's part of life, so my advice is to just go with it. Dinner was Gemsbok (Oryx) steak done to perfection with all the trimmings to make it a memorable meal. The room was comfortable and while there was no air conditioning the ceiling fan did a good job of keeping things cool. Our visit was in April, not the hottest month, it could get very warm in mid-summer though. The bed was very soft, too soft for us, and bedding somewhat tired, maybe time to replace some of it by this stage. As others have mentioned, the hotel is off the grid, which means a "donkey" boiler to heat the water for showers, so no early morning shower is available unless by special arrangement with Zirkie, the owner and manager. It also means no coffee station in the rooms so your morning caffeine fix will have to be obtained in the dining room. Special mention needs to be made of Omaruru, the African Grey parrot who makes himself at home around the guests. As a bird lover, for me, he was the icing on the cake, such a cool bird. So all in all a different experience, bring an open mind and enjoy an aspect of life that is fast disappearing. This gets the Travel Junkie seal of approval, all the way.

First of all I have read numerous reviews on this hotel, and would like to clarify some statements made which I have read in reviews. A lot of people did complain about not having warm water - Zirkie the owner told us to have a shower in the evenings as the donkey(which makes hot water) is on in the evenings, and the fire will die throughout the night and not be able to provide hot water in the mornings. The owner told us to inform him if we want to shower in the morning so that he could arrange making fire in the donkey early morning so that we could have warm water. We showered in the evening and in the morning, and had hot water on both occasions. Operating this hotel in the middle of nowhere without electricity is difficult. They run of generators and solar power - so please bare this in mind before you guys complain again!! Lots of people complains about the squeaking beds - did you know that the owner runs a wood work factory behind the hotel and made all the furniture himself by employing local people, learning them the skills to do proper woodwork, and so providing a life and future for them!! Ok lets start my review - First of all Zirkie many thanks to having such a wonderful evening at your hotel. You are doing a great job at recovering after the devastating fire. We stayed here for 1 night, and I will definitely do it again. Its an experience we will never forget. Its not a 5 star hotel, but I had an amazing time here. Better than some luxury resorts where I have stayed before. We wanted something unique, and we got it at Seeheim hotel. We arrived and were welcomed by the owner himself. We had a lovely chat outside while he told us the story of the fire. We wondered around and inspected the damaged building that was burnt down. After that we went inside the bar for a couple of cold ones. The bar is a proper old hotel bar which you can see have many stories to tell. The walls are decorated with nice trophies and old photos. Since we were the only 2 people staying at the hotel, we decided to have dinner at the bar. The owner and us had a wonderful time chatting, until we decided when we wanted to eat. While drinking at the bar the African Grey parrot entertained us as well. The owner then made us the loveliest medium to rare Gemsbok(Oryx) steaks with fresh salads. Man what an experience to eat at the bar with the owner. Zirkie all we can say is that we will be back!!! And I will tell everyone about your nice hotel. Our room had everything wee needed - extra blankets for the cold, working electrical points, nice big shower with hot water. Yes we were woken up by the workers as well, but bare in mind this hotel is being build up again after the fire. Currently there are plenty of workers very busy, so please give it time to complete the repair work and come visit again. I can guarantee you will have a different experience. and so what if you got woken up early - enjoy the lovely landscapes with an morning walk, go take photos at the old railway houses. Your are on holiday!! I can say nothing wrong about this place. It's unique, and a definite must do on your road trip in Namibia!!
