The young receptionist Martha was such a lovely and...

This should be No 1......beautiful house with lovely bedrooms and balconies. Clean as a whistle and top notch food-dinner can be booked there and I thoroughly recommend the home cooking! Most of all you are made to feel completely at home by the wonderful, charming hosts. The only drawback for some is that it's out of the centre of the...

Stayed at Royal Benguela in August 2015 for two nights traveling with a group of friends. Adie, Mac and Martha were great hosts and made sure that we were well looked after. The rooms were immaculate (my wife and I were lucky to get the suite - large bedroom and huge bathroom!) and the lounge area very relaxing. We also...

Described as one of the best B&B's in Swakopmund, we experienced different. The owners weren't home when we arrived and the younglady switched on the hotwatersystem too late. After a long day drive we had a cold shower :-( In winter it can be cold and damp in Swakopmund, but the owners do not turn on the heat inside nicely....

We had no expectations for our stay at The Royal Benguela and were overwhelmed with their hospitality, which makes it worthy of a good word. We stayed for two nights in June on our Namibian journey and were made to feel completely at home. The staff were the friendliest, most approachable, smiling faces who attended to all of our needs,...

I had a family visit last week and managed to break way for a few days to take my mom to visit Swakopmund. We stayed at the Royal Benguela and in my moms words, were treated like royalty. Sadly, the Swakop weather was not the best, but our stay at the Royal Benguela definitely made it worthwhile.

This guest house is pet friendly! The staff are efficient, helpful and make you feel very welcome. The breakfast is very good, with a a variety of breads, muffins, fruit juices, cold meats and a cheese platter in addition to a cooked breakfast. The rooms are well appointed and super clean.
