Cornerstone Guesthouse review

This was the best B&B on our trip. Reception excellent and incredibly helpful - super room. Dinner bookings were made and we were given mobile phones in case we got lost around Swakopmund. Breakfast was excellent. We had dinner at the Hansa Hotel and the Tug restaurant - both were excellent.

We went on Tommy's Living Desert Tour which was very good - the desert environment was explained and we saw a good deal of the wildlife - we would recommend the tour.

We visited the Crystal Gallery - superb display of crystals and some interesting jewellery for sale.

Cornerstone Guesthouse review

We were very happy at the Cornerstone Guesthouse. They have a really helpfull and friendly staff.

Like other places we stayed in, they have some problems with hot running water. It was not serious, but could be better. The room we had was a bit small, but they have bigger ones.

Good location to explore Swakopmund

Another long and dusty ride brought us to Cornerstone, the oasis we required.
Staff friendly and helpfull.

Peter, the owner, did not hesitate to fit a panel heater in our room on these surprisingly cold Swakopmund nights.
The town is small and easily walked and on a grid system.
Provision stock-up at Pick 'n' Pay supermarket. The museum is a must.
Plenty of places to eat.

Cornerstone Guesthouse review

Peter was very welcoming and helpful. The location just 5 minutes from the centre of town was perfect. Our room had its own lounge and kitchen and was very comfortable. Peter booked our restaurants for us and really looked after us, he was so obliging even letting us leave our luggage in the room until we returned from kayaking at 1 o'c the day we left. Lovely breakfast.

There is so much to do around here we wished we had stayed at least another night.

A good base for Swakopmund.

Peter was a great host whose sense of humour did much to make our stay an enjoyable experience. The layout of the rooms around the garden with its emphasis in lavender plants was a delight.

Very comfortable and perfect location.

A small, spotless guesthouse with a modern, unfussy style.

Room was light, airy and spacious. House boasts a pretty little garden. Owners were away and temporary host, Monica, could not have been more helpful. Staff also very attentive. Excellent breakfast.

Would recommend to those looking for a quiet location almost in the heart of town and well placed for restaurants, stores, the beachfront and general exploring.

Whilst here, we arranged a morning kayaking at Pelican Point for this traveller. She commented:

This was definately one of the highlights of the trip.

Jeanne is an outstanding guide and clearly knows and loves the area. The salt water pools in amazing colours (green and pink) were extraordinary, the bay beautiful and we saw flamingo, jackals and of course 100s of seals. The Kayaking was fabulous and the whole trip perfectly organised from the clothing/equipment provided, instruction provided and commentary to the welcome and warming hot coffee and picnic provided at the end.

Anyone visiting Walvis Bay must do this trip!

very helpful staff

Expert Africa organised a day trip to Sandwich Harbour for these travellers. They commented:

Rating: Excellent

Probably highlight of our trip; loved it! Ernest was a very informative and friendly guide, who showed us so many environmental aspects of the coastal desert - can't praise him enough.

Cornerstone Guesthouse

Very easy walking distance to shops, restaurants and the sea. We arrived at lunchtime and had half a day to see Swakopmund, which is just about enough. Some good restaurants to chose from but booking is advisable.

The day trip with Turnstone Tours down to Sandwich Bay was superb. It was just us with the very knowledgable guide.
I could easily have done another night in Swakopmund and taken another day-trip inland with Turnstones, or maybe kayaking etc.

NB for Cornerstones - would have liked the milk, tea and coffee replenished in the room.
