Not great. Suburban feel and rooms smelled damp.

Staff very friendly and helpful.

Good place to stay in Swakopmund

Small room in Central Guest House but use of lounge area. Help from Andrea with restaurant bookings.

Interesting town with a lot of new development. The Kempinski Hotel is now the newly developed Strand Hotel. We ate one night in the restaurant there, the Farmhouse Deli - very attractive and food fine but rather limited menu. Better was the second night at The Tug, with a very big seafood and fish menu.

Our scenic flight, booked with Pleasure Flights (we did the Classic Sossusvlei one, which also encompassed ship wrecks , abandoned diamond mines and seal colonies) was very worthwhile (but of course expensive - $10,660 with one additional person on the flight. I had been called in London to ask if we would agree to another person and to doing the flight in the morning. The cost included pick up and return to Central Guest House and a dvd of the flight)

In great location for Swakopmund city walks

We found the location very good, for exploring Swakopmund. It is a guest house and does what the name suggests - we had a lovely room, very private, the breakfasts both days were very nice; the staff weren't present that much but we did not mind this at all - preferred to be left alone and in any case, we were out most of the time.

We must mention the two highlights of our stay in Swakopmund - firstly, our kayaking trip with Jeanne Meintjies in Walvis Bay Lagoon, seeing thousands of seal, playing with them, rescuing a seal pup, also so much enthusiasm, knowledge and wonderful service from Jeanne. We recommended the trip to two people whom we later met at Desert Rhino Camp, who were going to be a few days later in Swakompund, and they contacted Jeanne and also went kayaking, and both got back to us to say that the activity was absolutely excellent.

The second highlight was our dinner at The Tug by the jetty in Swakopmund - best seafood we have had in a long, long time.

Good, friendly central b&b

Between the two cars we had two punctures and one cracked windscreen to deal with. The guest house was very accommodating about us being in and out during the morning while the cars were being fixed. Nice breakfast - much more generous and tasty than in Windhoek.

Well situated for the town centre

A warm welcome after a rather long drive from Etosha was much appreciated. The Central is very comfortable, pleasant rooms and a great breakfast choice. The secure parking is very useful, we left quite a lot of stuff in the car throughout.

Only a few minutes walk from the town centre with its good shopping and about 15 minutes to the coastal promenade.

Central Guest House review

We arrived and asked where we could eat, told everything was booked, asked for suggestions given a few with the fact that we would have very little success.

After long journey, that was the last thing we wanted to hear and to offer virtually no help was poor.

Managed to find a lady who was closing her shop on the High Street, most helpful, managed to find excellent restaurant.
