Swakopmund Guest House is a modern bed-and-breakfast hotel owned and operated by the Borg family. It benefits from a quiet location that nonetheless offers convenient access to everywhere in the town.
Everything about Swakopmund Guest House has a light and airy feel, with plentiful whitewashed woodwork, glass and white wicker set-off by minimalistic arrangements of the dark local stone. There is a pleasant green garden featuring a range of distinctive seating overlooking a central area, including wicker seats that hang from the beams that cover the paved porches. The restaurant offers both in and outdoor dining; crisp white tablecloths, exposed ceiling beams, wooden floors and wickerwork chairs strike a contemporary yet classic note, and as elsewhere there are walls complete-ly covered in single-ocean-view print wallpaper. There is also a communal lounge and reception area with comfortable couches and an adjoining room with seats around a central glass-encased stone arrangement.
Swakopmund Guest House offers seven standard rooms, seven luxury ones and a single, larger suite that is suitable for a family. All rooms are en-suite and have semi-private verandahs with seating that in most cases look out onto the shared garden. The bathrooms have a contemporary feel com-plemented by decorations of local pebble, with large mirrors and spot-lighting. The bedrooms fea-ture large beds with crisp white sheets and touches of character such as towels folded into bird-shapes or small piles of dark stones. As in the main area, most feature whole-wall sea-scape pictures that give a pleasing sense of space.
The whole historic town is easily accessed from Swakopmund Guest House, and there is also a range of activities offered, including horse-riding in the desert, parasailing and kayaking.
