Spindrift guest house

Self-drive holiday-makers in Namibia visiting Walvis Bay looking for a reasonably priced bed and breakfast establishment, should seriously consider staying at Spindrift Guesthouse. This convenient location is only a minutes walk from the famous Lagoon, ideal for birders especially in the breeding season. Relaxation is high on the agenda at Spindrift and they pride themselves on a 'friendly and homely atmosphere'.

Spindrift is also the ideal coastal stopover to visit the Namib Naukluft Park, Damaraland and eventually on to Sossusvlei. The Welwitschia mirabilis, one of the rarest plants in the world, can be viewed near the Kuiseb and Swakop dry river beds. A decent selection of well-established bars and restaurants are a short distance away. Day trips and activities include a drive on to Pelican Point Peninsula or perhaps an organized 4x4 tour to Sandwich Harbour.

Relax and unwind in their well-kept garden, around the swimming pool and koi fish pond in this delightful and peaceful setting. This is the perfect opportunity to unwind between Namib Desert coastal explorations.

Other facilities include a guest lounge, pool table, wi-fi Internet connection, braai area and off-road secure parking. All of the rooms are non-smoking and there is a laundry service on request. Their art studio, run from within the guesthouses management team, benefits local artists.

Close to the lagoon, very friendly and helpful people, the room we had could have done with a bit of updating.

Good budget accommodation however a simple ceiling in the upstairs rooms would improve the warmth in the rooms. The bare look makes it aesthetically pleasing on the eye but I'd rather be warmer winter.

The room was ok and clean but cold and no heating available in the room. That was a bit unpleasant since we were staying there during winter time. Breakfast was ok but could have a bit more choice. Otherwise ok and felt safe there.

This newly open guesthouse in Walvis Bay is quite a good surprise with a very nice host. The house is decorated with great inspiration, breakfast is complete and the owner is very helpful. From Bullsport : the main road is not so easy, bad holes from place to place and it took us 5 hours to arrive.
