Our family of six had a fantastic six night stay at Footprints. We stayed in the family units, which were spotless and had all the amenities we needed. Lorraine and her team were extremely helpful over the duration of our stay and made us feel very welcome. Laundry, bookings, etc. were expertly organised for us. Great experience.

We were two families who stayed for two nights on holiday and made us of the self catering family units. Very clean, well equipped and very comfortable. The sea view from the roof terrace is amazing for sundowners. The owner and all the staff are very friendly, very knowledgeable and very helpful. They also have a lot of day-trip sight... More

Very nice place for business or non business travellers. Very clean rooms, you can choose either from the newly renovated or the older rooms. They have very friendly staff. Weather allowing, one can enjoy a sun-downer at their roof top bar .

Place is average. Rooms are quite large, well equipped. Very clean. Free wifi is extremely slow. Breakfast is below par, really did not enjoy it at all. It is a nice place for a night or two. They can improve on a lot though.

We stayed for three nights. It is a 10 min drive out of town although that puts it within walking distance of the fabulous Wreck Restaurant. Apart from that there's nothing much else around there but it's easy to find and gets you to the main roads quickly. I wouldn't describe it as characterful or charming. It's appearance is more...

This B&B is clean and has basic facilities, but is far below the general high quality of other Namibian B&B/resorts.Our bedroom was quite large but bathroom had no door (Yes...you got it right...and it was pretty cold inside. Breakfast was ok, lounge/reception pretty shabby.

This is a great place to stay. Unfortunately you would need a car as it is about 5 kms from the centre of town. I would think one would need to hire a car in Swakopmund though, so shouldn't be a problem. It is well signposted, and Lorraine the owner will give you a map. Breakfast is an option, and... More
