Odd smell in the rooms?Read more about the whole trip
Lots of space in the apartment, a good view of the beach and clean with decent facilities like a much-welcomed washing machine.Read more about the whole trip
Swawkopmund was cold and bleak when we arrived and the room felt cold, good value for a B&B with a helpful proprietor.
The kayak trip at Walvis Bay was fantastic and I am so glad we booked this in advance, it was in many ways one of the highlights of the trip.

Our children's favourite place!
This was one of our highlights of the holiday, the staff were incredibly helpful, especially Margaret in booking our Living Desert Tour, lending us sand boards and giving us directions on where & how to use them, as well as recommendations (tried and liked) for restaurants! She was also really helpful when we were trying to find a Nissan garage to replace our lost hub-cap (unsuccessfully)!
It was wonderful to have the independence of a self-contained appartment. The voucher sent to us to confirm our booking stated we were on a B&B basis - but it was self-catering. This was fine. It just would have been nice to know before we arrived. The kids loved the apartment and the freedom to roam around the rooms playing or watching DSTV. It was also nice not to have to get up for breakfast for an allotted time. It was very clean, well decorated and well equipped. The opportunity to do our washing and to dry it was great! The location was close enough to the beach and town centre to walk in a few minutes, but in a residential area and so quiet. We think our kids liked this accommodation the most.
We had read a rather unflattering review of Brigadoon, but we found it fine. The rooms were perfectly adequate, very clean if not luxurious.
The breakfast was good, served outside the room in the small garden, which was a very pleasant green space after the desert.
All the staff were very friendly and helpful. The location was nice and central and we would certainly stay there again.
Everything was OK, just that everywhere else was so much better.
The mini 4x4 tour to Sandwich Harbour (run by the guy that owns the ballooning operation in Soussevlei) was great fun.
