Positives
>Good experience overall starting with smooth and friendly booking through Wycliffe in Reservations.
> Service was friendly and efficient and the food very, very good.
>The room (167) was spacious and well appointed.
>The premises are kept very clean.

Negatives
>Entry to the rooms is like a backdoor, too close to the perimeter wall and the noisy neighbouring hotel. Entry from the garden area would be better.
>Mosquitoes in the room - their breeding areas need to be cleared regularly.
>Reception area should be remodelled so that guests have an unrestricted view of the ocean as they check in. At the moment, the entire reception area blocks the ocean breeze.

Overall, a very good hotel.

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

James Boho
Guest Relations Manager
