Central Guest House review

No complaints.
But very uninspiring - very much a place to put your head down rather than a place to enjoy staying at

Felt that owner was sometines rather disrespectful to staff - they may have been inexperienced, but they were clearly trying really hard, and not sure owner was being too kind to them. Made me feel quite uncomfortable.

Central Guest House review

Alex the manager could not be more helpful. everyone was very nice! made our visit to Swampamund special. loved the convenient location into town. easy walk.

Sea kayaking around Pelican Point - What a great thing to do! we love the kayaking. saw tons of seals , dolphins and a surprise visit by a humpback whale! Wow! tour guides were very nice and enthusiastic! loved the trip.

Day trip to coastal desert south of Swakopmund - Earnest was the BEST!!! we cant stop talking about our day with Earnest! he was not only informative, enthusiastic but comfortable to be around. our kids loved him especially when he told them to take off their shoes! the dune rides were exciting! loved seeing all the wild life! great great day! didnt want it to end! highly recommend! especially Earnest! good man!

Ideal location in Swapokmund

We had driven down the skelton coast from Damaraland, and were warmly received by the staff at Central Guest House, which is in a convenient location as the name suggests.

We were assisted with our flight and restaurant bookings and nothing was too much trouble. The room and the breakfast were excellent, and the atmosphere friendly and relaxed.

Central Guest House review

Really great, the children loved the luxury of a TV for 3 days and as we were 8 people we had the top floor to our selves. It didnt matter at all that we were inland slightly.

The owners we really helpful about booking resturants and sorting out how to get the air con fixed on our car which was beginning to get a big probem as it was hotter than expected during the day. Breakfast superb.

The only thing that troubled me was the need for the night guard, the cars seemed secure enough behind a locked drive way and I couldnt help feeling uneasy that first he was deemed necessary and then that he was standing out in the cold ALL night evey night.

Quad biking was expensive but worth it and very close by, it was easy to book the day before, but we would advise booking at least the first night's resturant before arrival.

Central Guest House review

This is a gem in the middle of Swakopmund. It's a gorgeous bed and breakfast. The rooms are lovely and the breakfasts excellent. It's very well located so you can easily walk into town and the owners are very friendly and helpful.

The only downside for us was that we found it rather noisy at night. It was surprisingly hot while we were there so we slept with the windows open and could hear a lot of traffic and train noise. I suspect if we had been there at the beginning of our holiday we wouldn't have noticed it so much. It was probably because we had had two weeks of blissful silence in the desert.

We would highly recommend the kayaking trip with Jeanne - fabulous.

Immaculate accommodation, central location

Easy to find, very close to excellent restaurants (we went to Kuiki's and Grapevine). Accommodation was immaculate and lovely to have a bath. Elke the most charming, attentive, welcoming hostess.

Had a fantastic day out with Ernst from Turnstone Tours to Walvis Bay and Sandwich Harbor, take this trip if you can. Super breakfasts and the perfect cup of tea. Left there with a hug and the offer of assistance whereever we were. Highly recommended.
