Various boat and dune tours are also on offer by various operators.

Please note the following important information:
The Krabbenhöft & Lampe Building is over 100 years old. It is a national monument but is not financially supported as such. It is in this extraordinary setting that we provide accomodation which has the atmosphere of a historic house. There are no lifts, only stairs. Renovation is required in a variety of spaces and is carried out on a continuous basis. This includes walls, ceilings, wooden floors, plumbing, electrical items etc. etc. etc. nothing is perfect; it's OLD.
Although we try our best to keep everything clean, if the wind blows (as it does a lot in Luderitz) there will be dust, there will be some sand in the windows and all kinds of things blowing through the yards. The roof and building will express its age with a variety of noises.
Our establishment is NOT a hotel; there is no reception desk, no portier to carry your bags and if you arrive after normal working hours (17h00) you will have to contact the on duty manager and can expect to have to wait some time before they will arrive to check you in. There is a licensed restaurant on the premises where you can enjoy a drink while you wait.
Arrival after the restaurant has already closed (20h00) defines a "no-show" and you will have to find an alternative establishment for that night.
While our service providers provide their services (which unfortunately is also never 100% guaranteed), you will certainly be able to enjoy DSTv (movie and sport channels), free WiFi to internet, clean running water, electricity and hot showers.
Thus we provide for the general friendly, fun-loving, no-fuss, no-stress, relaxed people who enjoy taking a trip and enjoy life with all its imperfections. If this is your style : welcome to Krabbenhöft & Lampe!

Guest Comments

Lovely old building, which needs some TLC. The blinds are old and broken, the furnishings are very outdated, but comfortable. Pity we never got to meet the owners. Luderitz is an interesting old town, but would have loved to hear some suggestions from the owners on what the best attractions are. They do provide wifi which was greatly appreciated.

This was more than what we needed and we felt extremely welcome. had a very nice stay! enjoyed the space of Lampe Haus as if we were at home!!
- Johann Leuvennink

The establishment has no reception area, receptionist or safe parking. We had to ask three people where to check in. We were told to go find the old lady. The room we booked was given away to another couple. After careful consideration we decided not to stay and booked into the Protea hotel. We went back to return the room key, the lady didn't even ask us why we decided not to stay. I wrote a letter to the owner and she didn't even bother to return my mail. Horrible service.

Very quiet and pleasant.
