"Terrace bay 10 out of 10"
Staff had a sense of humour, which one needs if one is to live permanently in TB.
It was exactly as we expected. Therefore have to say 10/10." See all these reviews: 9n in Namibia
"The end of the road at Terrace Bay."
The facilities are basic but clean, they are oriented to fishermen going after the plentiful fish in the bay.
The rooms were a good size and had a nice view of the Atlantic. It is the only place to stay and one must keep in mind that caters to a different clientele than other resorts. The food was basic but very good with an excellent breakfast." See all these reviews: 22n in Namibia
"intersting but is it worth the drive?"
The rooms are left over lodging form decades ago mining operation and they are in desparate need of an update. They are noisy, drafty and very poor standard beds and shower facilities. the main staff is not all that friendly but the dining room staff is very good. The rooms are not all that clean so it does not appear to be very well run. t
This was definitely the worst facilities we experienced in our month in Namibia." See all these reviews: 27n in Namibia
"Basic accomodation in remote location"
The accommodation was right by the beach but it was dated and basic and the wash basin leaked. The food in the restaurant was surprisingly good given the remoteness of the location." See all these reviews: 17n in Namibia
