We stayed at the Burning Shore hotel for 4 nights. The location was great and our rooms as very nice and clean, but that was where the good news ended. The service was the worst I have ever experienced and we will never return to the Burning Shore!

The rooms at this hotel are beautiful...crisp linen, coffee making facilities, lovely sweeping views of the ocean. The decor is classy seaside-themed. We really felt it was a good place to just rest. The rooms are right on the beach- perfect for a walk on the quiet sands. The reception is friendly, and there is a great selection of maps...

I will start with the positive - the staff are extremely friendly. The location is great - right on the beach! The rest unfortunately leaves A LOT to be desired. It is supposed to be one of the African Pride luxury hotels of the Protea Hotels network. What a disaster! The place is neglected from a maintenance point of view...

We spent four nights at the burning shores. Our room was large, sunnny with ocean views from two sides. Room was clean. Manager lied to my husband about an upgrade he is entitled to. She said the room was being renovated. He asked to look. No renovations. !!?? All told over the four days we had catastrophe after catastrophe, hassle...

Unfortunately, we booked in here for three nights. Thought it must be really good because of the Angelina Jolie/Brad Pitt connection. What were they thinking of?? They obviously never returned and those days are long gone. I couldn't agree more with the comments from the StevenB81 review. The location was so awful we just couldn't believe it! The hotel is...

Having high expectations coming into "luxury, 5 star accomodation" part of Protea's exclusive African Pride label in Swakopmund Namibia this was an utter dissapointment. Let me actually start out with the good (yes, there is some). The accomodation itself isn't bad. The two rooms we were shown were spacious, had decent facilities and a nice ocean view.

We recently stayed two nights at Burning Shore. The rooms were very clean and spacious. The staff were great. Wonderful sea views right on the beach! The towels and bed changed each day. The restaurant has a good choice of menu and reasonably priced.

Yes, this is the place Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie chose when they stayed in Namibia to welcome their first child together. This is a bed and breakfast in a great location righ on the beach, but quite a drive from swakopmund or walvis bay,the latter not worth a visit, and the former a quaint German town.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
As the shifting sands of the Namib Desert swirl in time to an ageless rhythm, this hotel rises above the wilderness in an oasis of calm like a soothing balm upon the scorched earth. It is here, on the edge of one of the world's largest sand dunes, that visitors pay homage to the stark beauty of the Namib and the mighty expanse of the Atlantic. African Pride Burning Shore offers four standard rooms, three luxury rooms, four superior rooms and one suite. The hotel is located on the beachfront at Longbeach, only 15 km from either Swakopmund or Walvis Bay and 20 minutes from the nearest Regional Airport. It's a hotel that complements your travel style. Dine at our in-house restaurant that serves exquisite cuisine or sit down for your favorite drink in the cocktail bar. Guests can also head to the deck for alfresco dining with direct access to the beach or indulge in activities from quad biking to dolphin cruises. ... more   less

“We had 'Shiloh' room which was a luxury room, but it is open plan with the bathroom. Not a good idea if you want privacy on the loo! Otherwise, a nice room with a partial view of the beach and sea. We upgraded from a standard room which a member of staff said was very small. (We didn't see one.)”
