Delightful Cornerstone Guesthouse

The guest house is ideally located in the centre of Swakopmund. It has secure parking. The hosts are excellent and provided a great breakfast.

The rooms are well-appointed and comfortable. Each room has a verandah overlooking well-kept gardens, ideal for a drink before dinner.

A Gem!

This is real gem of a guest house - good location, generous sized rooms with small private veranda, very helpful staff, good breakfast choice, neat small garden, good security, and free Wi-fi.

Interestingly, later on our trip we met two other parties who had also stayed at Cornerstone (and highly rated it) and another couple who were booked-in. Very popular - best to book well in advance.

Seaside Comfort

This comfortable guest house is ideally situated to explore Swakopmund on foot.

The owners were very helpful and managed to book tables at The Jetty and The Tug restaurants even though it was the weekend. Tip if you want to shop avoid the weekend as most shops close by Saturday lunchtime. The museum is worth a visit.

A friendly central guesthouse.

We had a very warm welcome and it was nice to see Peter again whom we had met 3 years earlier when we stayed here. Nothing was too much trouble, restaurant bookings and trip confirmations were all done for us.

It is in a convenient position in Swakopmund with an easy walk into town and to restaurants.

Some of the restaurants listed in our travel books have closed down and they were all very full. We would recommend early booking for the Jetty and the Tug as they are very popular and interesting places to eat in.

It rained whilst we were there, something people said had never happened before!

We all enjoyed the kayaking with Jeanne of Ecotours and the trip to the Cape Cross seal colony was well worth the long rather dull drive.

Wonderful guesthouse!

This really is a superb establishment. Our room was large and beautifully equipped and had a very comfortable seating area. Our host was charming and nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast buffet table was a work of art with a wonderful selection of food and cooked breakfast was also available.

The bungalow is set in a most attractive garden. All the local amenities are within easy walking distance and there were no problems walking about in the evenings. Highly recommended !

A day trip to coast and dunes during stay in Swakopmund
Excellent - a good trip
We were picked up promptly by a very helpful guide/driver in a comfortable 4 x 4 vehicle. First stop was at Walvis Bay to see an amazing number of flamingos and to enjoy a leisurely stroll along the coastal path. Then on to Sandwich Harbour with views of the salt-processing plant along the way and a sometimes hairy ride among reed beds to reach the sandy terrain of the bay where the huge sand-dunes meet the sea. We left the vehicle at this point and walked towards the lagoon.

It was possible to climb the dunes for a better view of the lagoon although we decided against this! We were disappointed not to see many birds but this did not detract too much from the overall enjoyment of the trip. Our guide then astounded us by providing a hot lunch (courtesy of a microwave oven secreted in the back of the van) and soft drinks served round a table with comfortable chairs - most enjoyable! Our guide was excellent and a very good driver and deposited us back at our guesthouse after a most enjoyable trip.

Cornerstone Guesthouse review

Cornerstone has a great location with easy access to the facilities in Swakopmund. the room was delightful and the breakfast substantial. In addition, Peter is an excellent host, attentive and also directed us to just the sort of restaurant we needed.

Lovely place

We stayed at this guest house for two nights and were blown away by its quality. The welcome and service were first class; they even gave us a pre programmed mobile phone with their numbers on in case we experienced any difficulties.

The gardens are simply stunning and smell wonderful. The rooms are equally as good, spacious and clean with fresh linen. The owners were happy to recommend restaurants and make bookings for us, which they did on both nights. The town is within an easy 5-10 minute walk.

Breakfast was excellent.

Cornerstone Guesthouse review

This was excellent. The service when we arrived was brilliant - discussing and suggesting where to get a phone, booking dinner for us at restaurants for the two nights we were there and then taking us to the apartment. They also booked a restaurant for the following week in Windhoek.

Breakfast was excellent and the staff very helpful.

Our booking here had been missed by Wilderness and we opted to upgrade rather than try a different guesthouse. This was to a 3 bedroom apartment on the ground floor of a block of flats with excellent sea views and a garage. It was extremely comfortable and although much more than we needed I would highly recommend it to anyone for a group of 6 people. Very close to the jetty and restaurants.

Cornerstone Guesthouse review

A lovely, friendly place to stay, spacious room and excellent breakfast.

Very good meal at 'The Tug' and would also recommend The Village Cafe for lunch or just coffee and cake.

We drove to Walvis Bay to see flamingoes.

I did the kayaking trip which I have emailed you separately about.
