Central Guest House review

We stayed two nights at the Central Guest House in Swakopmund. It was well appointed, comfortable and clean. The beds were very comfortable and the bed-linen immaculately laundered. Breakfast was generous and very good.

Our hostess was very helpful.

Great location, clean and friendly

The lady at the front desk was very welcoming and showed us to our room, which was very easily accessible in an annex to the house. Parking was private and secure. This is essentially a B&B and the owner's children were around in the living area most of the time. Service was helpful and breakfast was good.

There was wifi in the main area, which was great after 6 days without!

Our room was very spacious, clean and modern and a big step up from some of the previous places, it was nice to have some home comforts such as a television too.

It is located a short walk from Kucki's Pub and some of the main places that the guide book recommends.

During their stay, we organised Pelican Point Kayaking for these travellers, they commented:

This experience was fantastic because it took us out to Walvis Bay, which is a beautiful town with hundreds of flamingoes on the beach that you can sit and watch until your heart's content - great for photographers to get up close to them and not many tourists scaring them off, it's a nicer more suburban area than Swakop.

Jeanne who took us out kayaking was very friendly, informative and helpful, she met us at Dolphin Cafe and was happy to answer any questions we had and was very enthusiastic about the excursion, she was also happy to make plenty of stops along the way for photos of the wildlife too.

The only thing that was slightly disappointing was that it was quite rushed, we didn't have as much time in the water with the seals as we had hoped. I also thought we might have a little more interaction with the seals but of course that's not up to Jeanne!

However, Jeanne took plenty of photos and a video of us, which she promptly emailed to us that same day. All gear was provided as was a lovely lunch on the beach - we even saw a humpback whale whilst we were sat eating our sandwiches.

Great location and lovely staff

Central Guest House is in a great spot, right in the middle of Swakopmund.

Rooms were clean and comfortable, and breakfast was great. Renata was so helpful in finding us a great dinner option and answering all our questions.

We would absolutely recommend Central Guest House

Well placed for exploring the coast

Clean, comfortable rooms. Owner very friendly and informative. Good breakfasts
Secure parking was an added bonus.

A formal welcome on arrival, even though this was after dark on a Sunday, would have been appreciated.

The dolphin cruise, by Laramon Tours, was very well organised, informative and enjoyable. The shuttle service from the Guest House to Walvis Bay was helpful.

Central Guest House review

Loved it.

The rooms with the nautical decor, the cozy, tiny common area and breakfast nook, the perfectly manicured flower beds and flowering trees, the shady courtyard, the central location within easy walk of any point of interest in Swakopmund.

Every detail felt homey and authentic.

Expert Africa comments

Day trip to Sandwich Harbour at the coast.

Kai - our guide and driver for the day was a fount of knowledge and very good company. He dealt with a flat tyre with ease and added just enough danger to an exhilerating drive through the dunes on our way back. He was absolutely brilliant!

We were lucky in our wild life sightings too - with terns of many kinds, hawks, pelicans and of course flamingoes being just a few.
The carcass of a whale - before it had begun to smell was also an amazing sight.

I would really recommend this trip to anyone with a spare day in Swakopmund.
