A five star guesthouse with regards to comfort, friendliness, helpfulness and breakfasts. The decor of the spacious rooms have been well designed with quality fittings. Nicolette and her staff work as a great team and the location of the guesthouse is a gentle 15 minute walk from the centre of this quiet town. It is safe to walk back to...

Dear BobCScotinWales - I loved reading your feedback and the good time you had here at Namibia's no 1 coastal town! Yes I know our local shop opening hours on weekends are a little "old style" in this sleepy town! Hope you still had an excellent time travelling through other parts of Namibia - greetings - Namib Guesthouse

This Guesthouse is very comfortable and relaxed place to stay in Swakopmund. The staff is more than welcome to help you out with tours, dinner reservations, etc. Rooms are clean, modern and spacious and the breakfast is excellent.

It was an amazing decision that I chose to stay and spend my holiday's in Namib Guesthouse. The place was not only classy and chic but also equally well supported by the staff and Nicoletta who went extra miles to make sure you have a comfortable stay. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Great place for the price. Felt safe here and the place was very clean. Breakfast was included and had a nice variety of food. The bed was super comfy and I slept great. It is within walking distance to all the restaurants.

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.

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.

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.
