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.

Comfortable place to stay

We didn't really like Swakopmund - the weather was cold and grey and we'd driven down from Damaraland, which we'd really liked. The guesthouse is fine, comfortable and the staff were very helpful and friendly. To be honest, we couldn't really see anywhere that looked better, as most accommodation appeared to be in similar guest houses.

The activities we did in Swakopmund were good - our children (aged 20 and 23) enjoyed sand boarding and quad-biking whilst my wife and I did an excellent trip to Sandwicj Harbour with Turnstone Tours (highly recommended).

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.
