Namib Guesthouse
Ranked #5 of 50 Swakopmund B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 February 2014 via mobile

We only stayed at Namib Guesthouse for one night but our experience was a memorable one. This is a reasonably expensive B&B so we expected impeccable service, comfortable accommodation and tasty food. We were not left disappointed. The room was very tastefully decorated, the linen and towels were luxurious. The bathroom was small but more than adequate. Free wifi is included. Possibly our only criticism was that there was no air con (although this is hardly needed in cool Swakopmund). Staff were professional and warm. We received some extremely useful dinner advice to eat at The Tug, where we had what was probably the best tuna we've ever tasted. Breakfast the next morning was the best we had during our stay in Namibia. The fruit salad, home made muffins and the steaming pot of coffee come highly recommended!

We stayed here with the family ( all adults) in November on our Namibia holiday. The lady who owns it runs a tight ship. Great service, very clean, rooms have high ceilings and the beds were very comfortable, showers spacious and breakfast buffet excellent. It's a small Guesthouse, all rooms face a courtyard, so be aware that you may hear other travelers coming and going. Namib Guesthouse is within easy walking/driving distance of town and restaurants. We'd stay here again for sure!

Very happy with our rooms, the service and the breakfast at this Guesthouse. It's several blocks from the ocean, but Swakopmund is not big or busy, so we actually liked the walk (or driving is quite easy). Our room didn't have AC, but it wasn't really too hot at night (and you could keep your windows open -- there aren't bugs -- if you wanted).

The owners couldn't of been friendlier or more helpful. They sent out our laundry, booked a couple of tours for us, recommended places to eat. It was a great location and an easy walk into town. The rooms were clean and comfortable.

When our fishing trip and kayaking trip was cancelled because of bad weather the owners were very understanding when we left a day early. I can't think of one thing we didn't like

Room Tip: no bad rooms!

Beautiful rooms. Spotlessly clean and well equipped (no fridge but kettle). Staff (Sulki and Nikki) were friendly,welcoming, helpful and personal in their approach.

We received lots of information about the area and felt that any problems would be sorted out quickly (although we had none).

A lovely, simple but comfortable base for exploring Swakapmound.

From the moment of arriving we were warmly greeted and looked after. Paulina booked us a great restaurant and arranging quad biking for the next day. When we went on a scenic flight with an early start a packed breakfast was made without question. The rooms are modern and comfy with great baths and showers. Breakfast is good with a choice of hot and cold dishes. Having a drink from the honesty bar in the lovely courtyard is a great way to relax. Less than 10 minutes walk from the main shopping and restaurant area.

Beautiful small guesthouse in a quiet residential area, a few minutes from either city center or seafront offering a warm welcome. Friendly host offers assistance in booking excursions and restaurants.
Large clean bright room opening on the patio, tea/coffee making facility but no fridge, huge modern bathroom, parking available right in front of the house with a guard at night.
The nice patio allows to enjoy a drink taken out of the "honesty bar", very good breakfast with extended choice for such a small property.
A good choice for a stop in the middle of a trip around Namibia !
