Brigadoon B & B
At a glance
At Brigadoon Guesthouse we are proud to have been the first B&B in Swakopmund to be registered with the Namibian Tourist Board, way back in 1996.
Since then we have built up an enviable reputation for comfort and hospitality, for our impressive standard of service and our ideal location within five minutes’ walk of the beach and Swakopmund’s central amenities and attractions.
Our newly refurbished rooms are spacious with en-suite bathrooms, and have been meticulously fitted out and decorated in a style which is minimalist but with a touch of African flair.
Our Guests have always enjoyed their full English breakfast individually served on their own wooden patio deck, overlooking the lush landscaped garden, and this service continues today.
That’s what makes us .
What is unique at Brigadoon Guesthouse
Brigadoon Guesthouse was the first B&B in Swakopmund to be registered with the Namibian Tourist Board in 1996 and since that time we have built up an enviable reputation for comfort and hospitality, for our impressive standard of service and our ideal location close to the beach and at the heart of Swakopmund. This has recently been recognised by an award from the HAN, the Hospitality Association of Namibia.
We have recently re-furbished all the Guest rooms and landscaped the garden to improve still further the ambience and tranquility which our Guests value so much.
During the day and evening, Guests can live the high-life with all that Swakopmund has to offer, but when they return to Brigadoon, they do so to a haven of peace and quiet. In the morning they wake to their full English breakfast, served, as always, on their own patio overlooking the garden, which builds up their strength ready for the coming day.
Brigadoon Guesthouse is now firmly established on the A-list of accommodation in Swakopmund, so you can be guaranteed a traditionally warm welcome, a comfortable stay and a truly unforgettable holiday break in Namibia’s sea-side vacation capital.
