Brigadoon guesthouse

Brigadoon Guest House offers both a convenient location in the centre of Swakopmund with the addition of the ocean just across the road. Comfortable and well-decorated rooms are arranged around a beautiful garden, complemented by outstanding, personal customer service. The Swakopmund Museum, the towns most popular beach area and the lighthouse are not far away either. Within walking distance is the post office, banks, excellent restaurants, shops and the town centre. In fact, you can walk just about everywhere in Swakopmund from here.

Swakopmund is the ideal seaside destination for individual travellers, families, the corporate community and self-drive tourists who wish to stay in one of the town's most popular, award-winning bed and breakfast establishments. Comfort and personalized service are guaranteed. Unpack and prepare for your onward journey in a secure parking environment, whether it be north to Twyfelfontein, Kaokoland and Etosha Park or further south towards Sossusvlei and Fish River Canyon.

Swakopmund serves as the perfect base for day trips and activities. Many venture out into the Namib Desert. Stunning scenery accompanies you across the gravel and salt roads to your chosen destination. The oasis of Goanikontes, the Moon Landscape and the Welwitschia Plains make for enjoyable half or full day excursions. Others prefer to relax in the old-world charm and savour the the seaside atmosphere. But there is no doubt that for many sport and adventure rate highly whether it be in the sky, on the water or the sand.

Brigadoon also offers facilities for the business community. Conferencing, small seminars and lectures for between 20 to 25 delegates can be organized. Associated equipment such as projectors, white boards and a flip chart stand can be included in your package. Refreshments and lunch can also be prepared if required.

Guests stay in tastefully furnished rooms, each with a separate entrance. There are:

Double Rooms: The 5 x spacious double rooms have twin/double beds, an en-suite bathroom with shower, fan, tea/coffee station, complementary Wi-Fi, a mini-bar and fridge, in-room safe and DSTV package. One of these rooms has a bath. A heater for those cold winter nights can be arranged. The wooden deck patio overlooks the neat garden. Enjoy your breakfast here in a peaceful setting. As you make hot drinks and toast in the morning, a full (English) breakfast tray will be delivered to your patio. It includes fruit juice, fresh fruit, cereals, yoghurt, bread, jam, bacon and eggs of your choice.

Triple Room: The triple room would suit a family of 2 adults and 1 child. The facilities and early morning service are similar to the double rooms.

The Sth African lady who runs it was a bit rude on our arrival. The local (younger) Namibian lady who was managing the front desk was really nice though.

The guest house is in an excellent location, and the breakfast service each day was excellent. The cold breakfast they provided the morning I went for kayaking was more than I anticipated, in a good way.

Voppen, Liza

We liked the fact that Brigadoon Guest House is very central in Swakopmund. The breakfast at our own patio was also very nice and the staff was very friendly and trained good! Nothing to comment actually, great stay.

Highams, Nick

Lovely quant guest house with very nice garden rooms done up. Great positioning, easy walking distance everywhere. Very helpful staff and nice to have a car guard at night ot watch vehicles parked on the street. Excellent little B&B, very happy with it.

Makinen, Kirsti

29 May 2012

Very good location, friendly staff. It seems to be a fashionable trend that there is no door between the bedroom and bathroom which is a bit annoying. Also, there was no proper wardrobe for clothes, only a small enclosure with hangers, but it was so low that even shirt hems touched the floor.
