“Very friendly, hospitable hosts; relaxing & personal guesthouse.”
Reviewed July 22, 2012

We spent the weekend here with our 3 children. The hosts, Adrianne & Mac, were very friendly, helpful and welcoming. They were very accommodating, in a relaxed way, with our children, which made things very easy for us. The guesthouse itself is spotlessy clean, with comfortable, warm (in winter!) rooms which are well equipped. There are two inviting living areas which is great if you feel like relaxing instead of mixing with the crowds in the town itself. We enjoyed ourselves very much and would most definitely stay here again, and highly recommend it to any individuals, families or business people who are looking for somewhere to stay without any hassles!

Very personal and comfortable guesthouse. We enyoyed the cosy atmosphere in the
house.Nice area to go for a jogging tour and to take walks along the beach which is in the neighbourhood. Can really recommend the Royal Benguela Guesthouse.

after a long and dusty camp tour we jumped to Royal Benguela Guesthouse for couple of nights - not so far from Swakopmund downtown (max 10 minutes driving).
great breakfast in the morning for quality and quantity; charming living room very well equipped with a lot of books, hi-fi, fireplace, and wonderful sofas..drinks are available (nice white and red wines) and affordable.
rooms are really big and confortable, bathrooms large and clean.
Wi-fi network available and works very well - free of charge

The only complaint I have about Royal Benguela and the staff there is that I wasn't able to stay longer. I was personally greeted at the train station by Mac -- the guesthouse owner. He took me on a tour of the town, pointed out some areas of interest. When we arrived at the guesthouse, he promptly confirmed all of the logistics for my various excursions and transfers and then introduced me to Eddie, the house manager, to take care of anything else I needed since he had to leave for a trip.

I was traveling alone and felt completely safe and comfortable. The house is beautiful and the perfect place to relax. Bed is comfortable, towels are thick and soft, the breakfast was great and the honor bar well stocked.

The house is a bit away from the main town, so plan to take a taxi. However, Eddie is a great resource on which taxis to take for the best deal. The neighborhood is also great for running near the beach or walking around and exploring.

We stayed for 2 nights and were sad to leave. Everything was great, especially our
Hosts Mac & Adie. Also loved Eddie, one of their employees who seemed more like a
family member. The house is really beautiful and very comfortable. Views from the upstairs
deck are wonderful, especially at sunset. The beach is just a short walk and there is also
a great restaurant, The Wreck, also walking distance. This place is few minutes from the main town, but nice to be in a peaceful neighborhood. Our every need was met with a smile.
We feel like we have made new friends. We loved their wonderful dog, Bella as well.
Can't say enough about our stay at The Royal Benguela.
