Swakopmund Guesthouse
Ranked #13 of 52 Swakopmund B&B and Inns

Reviewed October 15, 2012

We arrived in a broken down car, the staff immediately took charge, phoning the car rental agency for us, insisting that we be taken care of properly(this went on for two days, and due to the staff hat the guesthouse, we were issued another vehicle to continue our journey). The location was great for exploring the town and walking to dinner. Dinner was recommended and reservations made for each night we were there. Everything was very clean. The best breakfast we had the whole two weeks was here, including homemade bread. I would highly recommend this place, and will be ever grateful to the kind assistance of the staff.

This guesthouse is nice, clean and well located near the city center of Swakopmund and it offers a goob breakfast with fresh breads. Given the options in Swakop, I think it is a good choice.

However, there were a few things that annoyed us during our stay, one of them is the fact that we could hear the next door guests talking very distinctively (walls seemed as thin as paper).

The other is the fact that the internet access was not working at all in the room and was quite unstable in the lobby/dining room area.

Finally, there was a TV in the room, but it only offered a handful of channels. It was raining the night we spent in Swakop, so after dinner we headed back to the room and unfortunately, there was not much to do.

The guesthouse has a good location from which to explore Swakopmund by foot. That was a nice change from all the driving around Namibia. They also recommended very good restaurants to spend our evening. The guesthouse rooms are well equiped and nicely decorated. A rather cosy atmosphere. Breakfast was well taken care off and plenty of choice. All in all: a good place to stay one or two nights to enjoy the surroundings. We also saw business people stay over there, so both a holiday and business spot.

We had just come from staying at all the wonderful Safari lodges so it might have influenced my opinion on this place, but for my taste this guest house was like a concrete cell. Everything was concrete, painted white and sparse.
The staff was also a little chilly.

Lovely, clean and very comfortable. Hospitality warm and generous. Breakfast is sumptuous and the breakfast room is a jewel -- an always beautiful start to the day. Location is perfect, quiet, and withing walking distance of good restaurants, shopping and banking. Hosts very helpful with information and advice, and Sylvia especially kind when one of us got sick. Great choice for a very pleasant stay in Swakopmund. Highly recommend.

This one is a nice,clean,comfy guest house. I liked their all white interior. Their location is great. Every possible place you can go is just within walking distance.
They serve good breakfast. Hosts were also very nice and friendly.

I loved their flowers.

Room Tip: Rooms are nice,but not as big as it looks in the photos.

We loved this little guesthouse - everything is white and decorated Long Island Style. There are rocking chairs all over the veranda, and it felt great to be in such a clean chique place after the desert! The guesthouse is right in town, you can walk all over. Service is very friendly, and breakfast nice. A great place to stay! There is only one thing to consider: there is only one chair in the room and no lounge area - so after dark there is ni real place to sit, if it's cold out. Didn't bother us, but if yiubwant to soend time in the room, it's nit ideal.
