The Severin Sea Lodge provided a true oasis in the chaos of Mombasa for a transit stop overnight. It is someway from the centre (about an hour from the SGR station), which I viewed as a positive and a chance to escape to a little peace and quiet!

The grounds were well kept and staff generally pleasing; and the beach-side "Swing" bar a beautiful spot for a sun-downer or 2.

Both breakfast and dinner were of a good standard and during the course of the former some local entertainment from an acrobatic troupe which was a nice value-add.

Our garden-facing room was basic, but functional, however sub-optimal bed-nets had allowed a few small visitors into my space by morning time, so worthwhile ensuring suitable repellent is applied before lights-out.

A beautiful hotel at a beatiful beach. The staff are friendly and ready to assist whenever required.
The food is good but not soo much variety, they need to improve on this.
They have two beautiful and clean swimming pool, one has a slide which is fun for bigger kids and adults.
Doesnt have any kids club or entertainment activities which is a minus for them.
The rooms are clean.
Good when you want to have fun on a budget.

Dear Eadiey,

Thanks a lot for taking your time to write a review here on Tripadvisor. We're happy that you have enjoyed your time with us.

We just had a chef from Germany working with our kitchen staff and have implemented a new and great kitchen concept that will for sure enthuse you.
We also do offer some entertainment for our guest, a daily list can be found at the board near the reception.

We would be happy to welcoming you here at Bamburi Beach again and convince you of our services!

Best regards

Again, a 5 star review for my favourite hotel in Mombassa. I visit the area yearly for work an this year decided on a change and to stay at a hotel closer to where I work at the Bombolulu Cultural Centre. However, I lasted only 1 night and moved to the Severin for the 3 remaining nights. It was, and always is, like coming home! Thank you again to all the staff (new and old) at the Severin Hotel for making my stay once again comfortable and welcoming - I shall be back next year!

Room tip: As new to the sea as possible in Comfort Class
