Reviewed 9 January 2017

Loved the comfortable, large rooms, the breakfast buffet, the location and especially the incredible service. Paulina was incredibly welcoming and helpful, going out of her way to make sure we had a good experience, making our Christmas breakfast even more special.

Dear E3197OBmiked, traveling over Christmas is a different ball game all together and I am happy to read that you had a wonderful time here, and you felt rather "homely" - greetings from Swakopmund - Namib Guesthouse

The room sizes are smallish but are clean an modern. They are tastefully decorated and are comfortable. The guesthouse is intimate. Service is friendly and efficient.Breakfast is highly recommended. Avoid the room closest to reception as you will be woken early morning by staff.

We were there for just one night, but regretted we couldn't stay more. The staff was friendly, breakfast great and the room one of the best we've stayed in during our SA and Namibia trip. Definitely recommended, will stay there again if I happen to be around again.

We stayed here for 2 nights. The guesthouse is modern, clean, friendly and efficiently run. It's an easy walk to the restaurants - we tried the Tug and the Jetty and marginally preferred the Tug - and took the guesthouse's advised taxi back. Good shower. Take care in town: we were pestered by a young man walking alongside for quite...

Stunning, big rooms and very clean. Only stayed for one night but was thoroughly impressed. Have been to Swakopmund many times and discovered it only now. Even though it is not close to the ocean it is a great place and I will be staying there again. Did not get a chance to enjoy the breakfast.

Nice little Hause with frindly service and super breakfast. Good located in walking distances to anywhere. It has all what you need to stay for one or two nights. Swakomund was for us not really a place to stay any longer than one night.

Our stay at the Namib Guesthouse was an absolute delight. Pauline gave us a really warm welcome and gave us excellent tips regarding activities and restaurants. She also took care of all the bookings we wanted to make, with a big smile. The rooms are large and equipped with a comfortable bed and a great shower. On top of that...

Easy to find but quiet location in Swakopmund with easy walks into the centre of town for evening restaurants. Rooms are very pleasant and the breakfasts are excellent. Nicky was a charming hostess, spoke three languages (at least) and was able to give lots of help and advice.
