Friendly staff, clean and spacious rooms, great beds! Located quietly but walking distance from city center. Free WiFi in rooms, great breakfast with fresh baked bread. Staff helpt you to make reservations for restaurants or excursions.

Stayed here in June 2015 with the family. Driving up to the guesthouse you see a rather cute building...it actually looked really nice on the sunny day we arrived. It's in a quiet neighborhood on the edge of town but you walk 3 blocks and you are in the center of town!!! We had a nice apartment on the 1st... More

We stayed two nights at this guesthouse and it was a blessing (our travel agent Desire Africa did an incredible job arranging our Namibian adventure). We were able at a very affordable price to have all our washing done at the guesthouse and they went out of their way to make our stay great. Rooms are great and connectivity good.... More

Value for money. Friendly, efficient staff with very nice rooms. Good business travellers. Because it is close to the town centre and located in a safe area, you can go to the beach, shops and restaurants on foot.

The guesthouse is situated 3 minutes walk from the hub of activity in swkopmund. But its still very quiet. There is excellent parking. The rooms are airy, well appointed and very clean. We had a room upstairs and its was really large. Very comfy beds. The breakfast area and little lounge facing the road is a conservatory style facility letting... More

We stayed to nights in March. The location is good - a short walk into the main town. It's a quiet location. The rooms are very clean and well decorated - in a beach style. Everyone is very helpful - they will book meals at local restaurants if need be. It is rather motel style but we loved the place.... More

This is a great guesthouse. The location is perfect - you can walk almost anywhere in Swakopmund from here and yet the guesthouse is located in a nice quiet area. We had two inter-connecting rooms for our family which worked really well for us and everything was clean and worked well. The guesthouse staff were very helpful - and had... More

Guest house is very friendly, clean and efficient. Swakopmund feels safe and has some good restaurants and is a centre for activities. We tried to quad biking near the guest house and it was excellent and the guest house staff were very helpful with recommendations and advice and local knowledge. The rooms are spacious and clean and in a quiet... More

Very clean, safe, and easy to find... But no character and very limited view! It is excellent for 1 night transit, but no time to spend there... Breakfast are fine, but a lot of guesses... It is very much used by the tour operator who get I guess a maximum of profit with this guest house! Location is quite good,... More
