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.

Friendly and welcoming

Great place to stay if you visit Swakopmund.

However we may well have enjoyed staying at Walvis Bay more as that was where we kayaked with seals - great fun! My wife also had one of the best meals of our trip there in a restaurant called Anchors Aweigh - fantastic Prawns & Wings!

Whilst here, Expert Africa organised a Kayaking at Pelican Point trip. They commented:

We were really glad we did this trip. Well organised by Jeanne who very quickly after send us emails and videos of our time in the water with the seals.

Thoroughly recommend this trip and would say you need to book in advance with Jeanne as her trip is by far and away the best. 3 others offer a similar thing and we spoke to a Dutch family who went with one of the others and whilst enjoying what they did, they didn't get Jeanne's personal touch.

Lovely

A lovely guesthouse within easy walking distance of the sea, town and restaurants.

They gave us an early breakfast in order for us to go sea kayaking and recommended and booked restaurants for us for our evening meals. Wi Fi was also a boon.

All excellent except that our rooms were not together. Staff very helpful in booking dinners and especially when we had a puncture in contacting the car hire company to get it replaced.

Friendly and helpful Cornerstone guesthouse

Breakfasts were delicious and the staff went above and beyond in helping us arrange our activities.

Really friendly people.

Whilst staying in Swakopmund these travellers also did the Pelican Point Kayaking about which they commented:
Excellent - Great fun kayaking
Lovely lady and everything provided for the water activity_ waterproof shoes and clothes. Also had photos and videos taken and sent to our emails. The kayaking itself was easy- I had been a bit concerned as we were on the sea, but no experience needed!
