We stayed here for three nights on our 4th trip to Swakopmund! It was a pleasurable stay and the staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly. Brigadoon is in a good location,both the beach and town are easily accessible. We would definitely stay here again if we ever get the opportunity to come back to Namibia.

Stayed here for 3 nights and really enjoyed it. The location is great because it is right across the street from the beach and within 5 to 10 minute walk to restaurants and shops. The room itself was pretty basic but comfortable. Internet worked well. Breakfast was really good and consisted of cereal, fruit, yogurt, toast, and eggs. It was set up outside of our room each morning and they even accommodated us one day by setting up early because we had plans.
The only thing I would recommend is the staff letting people know upon check in that most places require reservations for dinner. We had no idea and were getting turned away at all of the restaurants on our first night.

Excellet place to stay in Swakopumd. The rooms are large and nicely furnished, with breakfast served outside in the gardens. It's well located, not right in the centre but a very short walk from the sea and lighthouse in a quiet spot. And the staff were completely wonderful. - especially for someone travelling with a broken foot! Would definitely go again.

Stayed here for a couple of nights. Very nice rooms. Excellent breakfast. Friendly obliging staff. WiFi and every convenience. Well located for restaurants and an easy walk into the town for shops. Don't miss a meal at the Tug and the nearby Lighthouse restaurant is good too. Visit the museum - fascinating!

This is a very good B&B and will be unlikely to disappoint. The rooms are basic but comfortable and have TV (we'd not seen one for a while!). The gardens are attractive and they serve breakfast on the patio in front of your room. It is an easy walk to everywhere in central Swakopmund. Can't say we found a rstaurant nearby that we'd recommend but there are many places and we were probably unlucky.

They did our laundry at a very reasonable price - much appreciated after a couple of weeks of travel.

As everywhere in Namibia the people were very nice - helpful and friendly.

This stay was one of many on our recent world journey..The rooms were extreemly comfortable , clean & tastefully decorated.It was a delight to be served a real English breakfast on our balcony overlooking a nice garden setting.Kathleen was most helpful without being intrusive & even offered to make our restaurant reservations for the evenings.The locaion is an easy walk to all major points of interest & whilst not on the beach is only a few minutes walk.Whilst Brigadoon is classed a B & B I have stayed in many 4 star hotels of lesser quality.

We stayed at the Brigadoon for only one night, and i wont say the stay was earthshatteringly memorable, in the sense that they don't have some picture postcard views from their rooms that you can keep looking at. However, as an upmarket B&B, it is quietly efficient. The room we stayed in was quite spacious and clean, so was the bathroom. Yes, there was no door to the bathroom, but then that was the case in most of the places we stayed in Namibia. We were just the two of us (me and my wife), and it was not really 'open', so we didn't have any problem with that. Breakfast was served next day on the deck outside the door. It was lovely, the food was good, and the Chef came out to meet us and ask if all was well. It was a nice homely touch which gave us a feeling of warmth.
As far as the location is concerned, though I did say it doesn't have rooms with terrific 'sea-views', yet, the place is conveniently located, and you can walk down to the beach in 5 mins, or go to the town-centre in 10. Kathleen was also very helpful when we wanted to clarify our doubts as to what places we could go to in the limited time that we had, and also with information about banks,etc (for forex). They also have wi-fi with decent speed, for those of you who are interested.
Overall, a very pleasant, hassle-free stay. However, if I have to stay for more than a night or two, probably this place will not make the cut, but that is only because I don't like to stay at a place where I can't see much from my window (especially when I am on a holiday!).

Room Tip: if you can, try and avoid the rooms next to the main entry gate. Its quite common for inconsiderate...
