Central location and very good accomodation

We only had a short 15 or so hours here so difficult to provide much of a review. Room was very clean and modern and the owners were helpful, friendly and professional. Nothing to fault.

Conveniently located Cornerstone Guesathouse

A very friendly guest house conveniently located at the South of Swapokmund town. Also close to the main shopping area and restaurants on the sea side. B&B only, but a very good breakfast, and very helpful owner and staff.

We had no problem parking on their premises tho' there are a limited number of places.

Cornerstone Guesthouse

The Cornerstone Guesthouse was in a good location. The rooms were nice, no compliants. The gardens ourside the rooms were lovely. I just wish it had been warmer so we could have sat on our patio and enjoyed the flowers.

We arrived late on our first night and Robyn was very accomodating in meeting us at the hotel after she had left for the night. Pieter (the owner?) met us at breakfast and was very friendly and helpful in recommending restaurants. The Cornerstone was a nice stopover between the our trip from the south to the north.

Cornerstone Guesthouse review

We arrived in Swakopmund during a sandstorm, so the Cornerstone felt like a calm green oasis. The office staff were helpful and friendly and gave us good advice on things to do in the area. Bertina made a special effort to help us plan our day's activities.

Due to the high winds, we didn't go on a boat trip or guided drive into the desert, but did enjoy exploring the lagoon on our own. We recommend visiting the sea lion colony at Cape Cross.

Great stay at Cornerstone

A superbly run guesthouse with charm and warm hospitality. Our outing to Sandwich Harbour with Turnstone Tours was outstanding - our tour guide, Ernest, was extremely knowledgeable about the area and its birdlife.

The Jetty restaurant was very good - better than the Tug.

Hospitable haven

The room we were allocated was very clean and neat but a trifle small.

The breakfast was excellent and hosts very friendly and hospitable.

The Guesthouse is well located relative to the beachfront and the town

The excursion to Sandwich Harbour was excellent as was the guide Ernst Ritter. Very good birding there and at Walvis Bay.

Restaurants-The Jetty -very good with excellent service. The Tug- food excellent service not as good and wine a bit pricey given the quality.

Cornerstone Guesthouse review

This was just a stop over for us, so we have little to say.

The breakfasts were very good and a decent place to eat in Swakopmund is 'The Jetty' - a restaurant at the end of a pier sticking out into a very cold Atlantic. Excellent Savignon Blanc for only $N75 abottle.

Cornerstone Guesthouse review

We enjoyed our quick stay here. We were alittle confused upon arrival because from the direction we arrived the car park entrance was the first entrance we saw. You have to have "clicker" to get in...so we had no idea why the gate was not opening for us...but the security guard saw us and showed us how to round the corner and come in a different place. There ended up not being enough room for our car in the car park but we felt safe with the security guard.

We arrived just before sunset and it was clear that we were keeping the front desk person there....so don't be late. Everyone here was very nice. The night check in person wanted to help us with restaurant recommendations. We should have taken her up on this. Where we ate on our own devices was sub par.

The room was very nice. We figured out the white square on the wall was a heater. No blow dryer available here. The garden was particularly beautiful. I took mental notes of things to do in my own garden. Breakfast was really good and the gentleman who was working was delightful.

I recommend this place without reservation...as long as you know where to pull in!
