Very Welcoming. Good place in a strange town

Arriving in Swakopmund on a murky winter evening in the mist feels a bit like arriving in a place the day after a nuclear bomb! No-one on the street. Nothing open. Chilly damp air. All a bit weird and, we believe, a pretty frequent occurrence!

Central Guest House is a welcome haven from that. Very nice rooms, good breakfast and very helpful service. Excellent wifi.

Central Guest House is a great place to stay

As the name suggests, the guest house is Central - very convenient for walking into town in a matter of minutes.

Nadine made us very welcome and did everything possible to make our stay very pleasant.

Best packed lunch of the trip.

We ate one dinner at The Tug which was first class - we had booked a table before leaving UK which was necessary as the place was heaving.

We also had a meal at the Western ???? - not recommended. They had Crayfish on the menu which I ordered - they had tried to cook it from frozen and it was still cold and, knowing that a very upset stomach would result, I returned it uneaten. The very pleasant waitress showed no surprise and said that it was frozen because it was out of season!

Central Guest House review

Central Guest House turned out to be what we expected--adequate to very good room and facilities. The breakfast was very good including cooked eggs and bacon with lots of choice, The owners and staff were very friendly and helpful, advising us as to where to go and what to do. Good location a five minute walk to the central down town.

We walked around town several times and drove to Walvis Bay as well. Overall we did not see much reason to return with a group. We spent an entire day on a drive through the Namib desert park and enjoyed that very much. But given the 6 hour drive from Windhoek and the 6 hour drive to Kalala Desert Camp, we are not sure how to make it work to include Swampkomund.

Central Guest House review

It wasn't the hotels fault, but we were overall quite disappointed with Swakoppmund. Not quite the experience we had expected.

Even on the night of the 31st of Dec, the streets were empty and quiet. Most restaurants were closing at 9pm. A lot of the bars/clubs weren't open for NY celebrations.

But the guest house was perfectly fine. Within a walking distance from everywhere.

Central Guesthouse

Perfectly suitable for a stay in Swakopmund.

We can recommend the Fish Deli just down the road. Looks a bit like a cheap cafe, but the fish was excellent. The Living Desert tour with Chris was superb. Can thoroughly recommend this.

A Good Choice

Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Very conveniently situated just a few minutes walk from the main street of the attractive town of Swakopmund. Friendly and efficient staff ensure Central runs like clockwork. Smart and clean, there is a guest lounge with comfortable furniture and complimentary sherry in the evening. Free wi-fi in the public areas. Breakfast is excellent.

There is a complimentary drinks station on the first floor landing but this is not ideal as you are conscious of making a noise which could wake other guests when making an early morning coffee. We had room 6, which though small had our required twin beds and bath/shower, and was fully equipped. The bath was a welcome luxury in what can be the very cool micro-climate of Swakopmund. This is a comfortable base and a good choice.

A good place to stay in Swakopmund.

The guest house is very central as the name implies.

The rooms are comfortable and the staff very hospitable.
