I have been here before and this time spent 3 nights, again having a wonderful stay. Adie, Mac and the staff were incredibly welcoming and friendly. It is really enjoyable staying here. Sitting on the balcony at the end of the day, watching the sun drop behind the see is a magnificent experience.

I stumbled upon this guesthouse when the first one I tried was full. Staff are very friendly and accommodating. Rooms are large and well appointed, clean and quiet. Buffer breakfast was good too. The Beach House is just meters away and you can hear the ocean at night from the property. Affordable and convenient, just a few minutes drive from...

I'd like to say the Royal Benguela Guesthouse was a home from home, but it is SO much more beautiful than my home that it would be bit insulting :-) It is comfortable, well appointed, accommodating staff who served a great breakfast, and at the same time, a welcoming and relaxed atmosphere. Adrienne is a star - we arrived late...

The Royal Benguela Guesthouse has been so amazingly hospitable. My husband and arrived after a 6 hour drive from Sossusvle quite exhausted. After having checked into a very large and clean room, we asked Adie for help with booking some tours for us. We soon found out that most of the tours had been booked up, but Adie remained persistent...
