Intermezzo Guesthouse: Our full report

Intermezzo Guesthouse is a small bed and breakfast located in a quiet residential area of Swakopmund, about ...

... 25 minutes walk from the town centre, or a short drive.

The 9 rooms are made up of seven twin,double or triple rooms and two family rooms. Each are clean, bright and fairly spacious and offer hairdryers, telephones and tea and coffee making facilities and some have a small balcony with a table and chairs. The larger family rooms have a small seating area which adds a bit of space, and stops them from feeling too crowded. The rooms all have large en-suite bathrooms equipped with showers, and some of the rooms have an additional bathtub.

The brightly coloured lounge has several comfy sofas looking out over the well-manicured gardens, and adjoins the light and airy dining room. Breakfast is served here as a buffet, with hot food also available by order. Plants, shells and African carvings dotted around these areas soften the edges, and lend the guesthousea homely feeling. This atmosphere is aided by the staff, who have always been incredibly welcoming, and the personalized ‘good morning’ notes are a thoughtful touch.

All activities and restaurants in Swakopmund can be booked at reception.
