A nice friendly welcome showed things looked good. Rooms good size, clean good bed. Fairly quiet location and easy walk into the town. If you like you can help yourself to a glass of sherry before you head out in the evening. Breakfast was delicious. If you are travelling on long distance I can recommend the packed lunch, very tasty... More

Very central in easy walking distance of the town centre and sea. A clean and comfortable stay. Helpful support with plug challenges, and good recommendation for things to see and do. Breakfast ok. Good post-stay help after we left a jacket behind by mistake.

We stayed here for two nights before our safari began. It's a lovely place - spotlessly clean and well run. The breakfast was really good. Eggs any way you want them (including poached!) and a good mix of bacon and mushrooms. Lovely food. Overall a great experience, very good location, can't fault them at all.

Lovely place to stay in Swakopmund: 1) Very good location with few minutes’ walk to town center; 2) Simplicity and perfection in every detail of interior; 3) Atmosphere of old fashion house and passionate love in the building; 4) Very nice personnel who supplement the spirit of the house.

Central Guest House is just that. It is well situated to be able to walk around Swakopmund easily. Rooms are comfortable, although quite small and tastefully furnished. The lounge area provides internet access and therefore a meeting place for guests. Breakfast is fabulous and beautifully laid out. Service is friendly and helpful. There was no problem in giving us an... More

Spent three nights here before travelling onwards to Etosha Park. Lovely comfortable guest house in a quiet street but within walking distance to the main roads , restaurants, beach front and "sights". We had the spacious corner bedroom at the front, with a large comfortable bed and clean, modern shower room with all the necessary toiletries. The breakfasts were amazing-... More

Central guest house is a very comfortable b&b, but you do very much feel like you are in someone's house. The rooms were large and clean. The cooked breakfasts were really tasty. Make sure you order when there and not just stick with the continental breakfast. Swakopmund is tiny, therefore pretty much anywhere you stay, you'll be really central. It's... More

This is a small bed and breakfast on a quiet street in swakopmund on a corner allowing good views. It's a short walk from the Main Street making it easy to stroll in and out to the main town centre. The staff are very helpful and friendly. They use nice african toiletries which we ended up buying up a few... More
