“Great bungalows with heating”
Reviewed 4 January 2014

The bungalows are huge, we had two bedrooms with a large open plan lounge / dining room / kitchen. The bathroom was a good size with a separate WC. Each has its own patio with BBQ. The breakfast was very good and a really nice dining room. It's a bit of a walk into the centre of town but only around 15 minutes. Very close to a lovey beach. Other than being served in the dining room we had no contact with staff so cannot comment on general service - everything we needed was there so no need to contact staff.

Nice campsite with a private little washroom for each site. The place is nice and neat and close to most everything in town. The configuration of the site is such that if it is windy (you are only a couple of hundred meters from the sea) that the wind is kept out for the most. Would recommend this for sure.

We stayed two nights on a private campsite which had our own bathroom, built in braai (bbq), outdoor sink and electrical outlets. The site was very clean and secure with guards walking at night. The campsites were really close to each other so it was easy to see your neighbor, but other than that it was walking distance from the beach, aquarium, pier and to the city centre. I would highly recommend it!

Room Tip: Ask for a campsite near a corner for more privacy

After the dust of Caprivi, Estoha and the journey southwards, two nights in a clean grassed and private campsite was marvelous. We were recommended by a local friend and arrived with out booking but were made to feel welcome from arrival. The private ablutions were ample for the four of us, with a good supply of hot water, a washup for dishes and electrical power pionts. Cell and Wifi reception so we caught up with the outside world. Close to the beach and town which has a vast selection of restuarants for tired of cooking campers. We will return.

We stayed here as part of a group tour enroute from Sossusvlei to Etosha. The facilities are good and the location is very close to the beach and the town. The self catering aspect allowed us to have a group barbeque which worked well in this setting.

The breakfast, which is included in the rate, was very good.

As a group of retired Hoteliers on a camping trip to Namibia we needed to refresh , clean up , do some vehicle repairs and supplies shopping en route from Etosha to Sossusvlei, Fish River Canyon and home via Kgalagadi Transfronter park. We stopped in Swakopmund for three days, no booking and simply drove around , looking for a place to camp or stay.
Well fortune smiled upon us as we stumbled across Alte Brucke!
This is one of the cleanest , most friendly , well organised , well considered , well thought through and best managed places it has been my pleasure to experience in Southern Africa.
The campsites are lawned, with private ablutions , the gardens are fresh and lovely whilst the chalets are perfect , well equipped, comp bottle of wine, immaculate and fresh.
The staff we dealt with were kind and attentive. Our breakfast chef went out of his way to please us and the Management took time to ensure we had all we needed and offered assistance and advice at every request.
In my opinion Alte Brucke sets the standard to which every such place should aspire. Well done and thank you...We will be back.

This was our first campsite with private bathroom. Unfortunately the weather was terrible when we arrived. We had to make a campfire for keeping warm. Staff was very friendly and the bathroom was clean and had a good powerful hot shower. It a bit far from the town centre, but close to the beach.
