5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012

We stayed at Sandfields for 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed it!! The rooms each has its own fireplace, very comfortable beds and en-suite bathroom. Excellent breakfast and very friendly staff. The dining area also has a cosy fireplace. It's only a short walk to the beach and quite close to town. Will definitely recommend it.

We stayed here for two nights, in two adjacent rooms, both of which were good-sized with well-appointed en suites, comfortable beds, and open fires, one of which we lit each night. In between the two rooms was a small kitchenette for making tea and coffee.

Jean the host was very welcoming, and helped us decide what to do whilst staying (in a good way, not pushy at all, like some hosts can be) - the kids quad-biked on the sand dunes and we explored the Welwitschia Drive - huge, dramatic landscapes. She also provided enormous and delicious breakfasts, amongst the best of our whole year travelling the world. With free wifi and secure off-street parking, this place was very nearly as good as it gets.

This place is a desert dream! Fireplace in every flat is delicious and the courtesy is the sign of pepole who manage this wonderful hotel. We hope to visit again Namibia and for sure to come back in this place that I feel like home

We were starting our self-drive safari from Windhoek and after a few desert days need two nights of care. Sandfields guesthouse provided two adjoining rooms in an annex of the main building. The rooms are large, with spacious bathroom (huge shaped tub in one) and twin or double beds. Very nice breakfasts and great library in the lounge to plan the onward trips. Highly recommended

Room Tip: Families wanting two adjoining toom should ask for the annex with own entrance. Not a 'party do...

We stayed at Sandfields guesthouse in Swakopmund 3 nights and had a wonderful experience! We had 2 close rooms – one for parents and one for 3 grown children. Ideal for families. The rooms are clean, big and comfortable. A huge benefit is the ability to have free wifi connection. Another advantage is the free private parking. The staff was kind, helpful, and efficient. Jean and her husband are congenial and exemplary host. Jean was very kind and made dinner resveration for us to a recommended restaurant. The water was hot which is a very good thing after the activities in the dunes. The place gave us a homely feeling. Another wonderful benefit of Sandfields guesthouse was the rich breakfast that contained coffee, fruits, cheeses, yogurt, meats, cereals, with made to order eggs. We had use Sandfields guesthouse's laundry service, and we were very satisfied. We will happily return!

Without doubt, the nicest guesthouse in Namibia. The owners are friendly and completely on top of every small touch to make this the perfect place to stay. We were especially happy with the in-room fireplace (wood provided!) but everything from the breakfast to the laundry service was done perfectly and with a smile.
We'll never stay anywhere else in Swakopmund!

Room Tip: All the rooms are nice in this small guesthouse.
