Cornerstone Guesthouse review

Owner and all staff were very friendly and helpful.

The room was quite nice, with plenty of room to spread out and several nice little touches, including cookies with the tea and coffee. The garden was lovely. Location in downtown was perfect.

Highly recommend.

Friendly guesthouse

A friendly guesthouse set in lovely gardens and within easy walking distance of the shops and restaurants and very easy to find on arrival. The bedroom was a good size and it was nice to have a fridge and TV in the room.

The bathroom however was rather small and the layout did not work very well.

Cornerstone Guesthouse review

Really enjoyed Swakopmund and the guesthouse. Friendly staff who made restaurant bookings and gave general advice.

Room was spacious, bathroom even more so. Impressed by the international electrical sockets. Lovely gardens and generally relaxed atmosphere. Good supermarkets and restaurants in the town and safe to walk around after dark which added to the enjoyment.

Whilst here, Expert Africa arranged a 'Day trip to Sandwich Harbour' about which these travellers commented:

Delightful Day in the Dunes
Probably the best day of the whole trip, which is saying a lot. Ernest from Turnstone Tours was enthusiastic, extremely knowledgeable, skillful and seemed genuinely pleased by the group's enjoyment. Part of the wonderful experience was walking along the Skeleton Coast (seeing a jackal on the way), climbing up into the dunes and enjoying the solitude while Ernest went back for the Landrover (and our boots). He picked us up, drove on a bit more and then stopped for an impressive lunch before taking us back to see the flamingos and the pink salt pans. Great experience.

Enjoyed these dunes even more than those at Sossusvlei because we were alone, they seemed more remote because of the dramatic way the dunes met the sea

Cornerstone Guesthouse review

Again excellent accomodation and service.

The staff were very helpful in advising and taking post while dealing with a problem with Budget, the car hire company. We had an excellent trip in Walvis Bay and the sand dunes while here. The restaurants in the town were also very good with a wide range of choice.

Cornerstone Guesthouse review

Very friendly host !

You are given one mobile phone per room with the ability to contact the owner in case of problems - nice touch ! (although Swakopmund, like the rest of Namibia, is so safe and crime free, these were probably unnecessary)

Not all rooms were equal - we had two rooms, one was half the size of the other.. no complaints, both were OK, just one room was better. The owner did point this out and give us the choice of who had which room.

Cornerstone Guesthouse review

Fine place to spend the night in Swakopmund. Within walking distance from the beach and easy to reach from the 'highway'.

Very nice garden. Breakfast was excellent.

Good base for coastal Namibia

Extremely helpful owners.
Very useful drive in secure parking.
Centrally located for exploring Swakopmund.
In our opinion the breakfast was not as special as we read about, fairly average.
Good eating at Eriks and The Tug.

Excellent accommodation and service. Beautiful comfortable rooms with chairs and table outside. Lovely garden areas.

Owners extremely pleasant and helpful.

Probably the best breakfast of our whole trip! (and there were plenty of other good ones too)
