“Business Stay”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

I am a frequent traveler and have stayed in many guest houses, lodges and resorts all over South Africa, Namibia and Botswana. It is always a pleasant relive when I stop at the venue were I have to overnight and one is greeted by a welcoming host, who shows you a place where you just know you will be comfortable and you will be able to have a good night's rest.

This guesthouse reminded us of ones we’ve previously used in South Africa, in that the rooms are separate from the owners accommodation, meaning you don’t feel like you’re staying in somebody’s house.
The room was a good size and contained everything we required, such as kettle, hairdryer and fridge, plus there was lots of space to put your luggage without it cluttering the room too much. The bathroom is quite small and open to the rest of the room, and that includes the toilet, which we didn’t like but were prepared for because we’d read about it previously on Trip Adviser.
As others have said, breakfast is served on your patio although on the two mornings we stayed, it was surprisingly cold, which made it more of an endurance test than anything romantic – but the quality of the breakfast is good, especially the hot breakfast which was really nice. They have an excellent breakfast chef here.
The staff were helpful here too, and did go out of their way to help us with adapters and also arranging an early breakfast for us as we were off on a kayaking trip in Walvis Bay.
The location of the guesthouse also means that there are good restaurants within walking distance and although the town was quiet at night, we never felt unsafe.

We stayed two nights at Brigadoon Guesthouse. The welcome was very friendly and the room we stayed was very nice decorated and pretty big. We had the chance to see all 7 rooms and we and our friends had rooms 2 and 3, definetely the best rooms. The breakfast was very delicious and very nice presented. The service was very good and the staff always very friendly and helpful.

Our overnight stay at Brigadoon could not have been better. On arrival we received a friendly welcome, we were offfered helpful suggestions regarding things to do and dinner reservations were organised. Our room was very clean, modern and comfortable. The location was excellent in a safe area within walking distance to the shops, restaurants and close to the beach. The garden setting was a very welcoming oasis after the desert sands of Namibia. The breakfast was excellent and we enjoyed eating it on our verandah. If you book Brigadoon I can guarantee that you will not be disappointed. It was easy to find with free parking and a wonderful hostess.

We had an excellent stay at the Brigadoon. We arrived early and left our vehicles at the B&B and wandered around town. The rooms were warm and pleasant and breakfast was a treat on the patio. The young man at the front desk was extremely helpful and very informative on waht to do and see in Swakopmund.

i don't think I've ever stayed at a guesthouse where the staff are as well trained and friendly as at Brigadoon.
The personal breakfast on your private garden patio is an excellent touch. The rooms are lovely and the garden beautiful.
I loved every moment there.

I have stayed in Brigadoon several times over the years, and it is getting better and better. Location is great - very close to the beach, restaurants and town centre, yet peaceful and quiet. Rooms are spacious and comfortable, and breakfast, served on the patio outside your room, was the best we had in Namibia! Well done to everyone in Brigadoon, you made our two days in Swakopmund truly memorable.
