"Cornerstone Guesthouse review"

2 nights Arrived 10 Mar 2023
"Friendly, well thought out and efficient. Well set up rooms and friendly staff.

Guesthouse location is pretty central although it did feel a bit lonely at night when walking back (quite pleased to be given a mobile phone to be used in case of problems).

Enjoyed Swakopmund as a change from the aridity of the interior and a chance to cool off (Namibia was unseasonably hot for our visit - 8 to 10 degree C above long term averages - so this was really good in those terms).

Breakfast was OK but bread a let down - and this in a town with some good bakeries (understandable in places where things may be difficult to source but here we hoped for better).

Some great local eateries: The Tug, Kuckis and Bojos were all great." See all these reviews: 16n in Namibia

"Cornerstone Guesthouse review"

2 nights Arrived 28 Jan 2023
"We arrived at 8 am during their breakfast rush asking if we could park our vehicle for several hours while we got national park passes and shopped (it was Saturday am and the only time we anticipated being in Swakopmund while things were open.

Not only was the proprietor helpful with parking he told us the correct place to go for passes and gave us a map to Welwitschia Drive with interpretations all while managing an overflowing breakfast room. The breakfast was wonderful and the rooms very comfortable with good internet and showers.

We climber Dune 7 outside of Walvis Bay. The government has just started charging but there is confusion as to amount non residents pay and where they pay. Fortunately everyone was interested in our climbing. I think we were the only non residents there." See all these reviews: 10n in Namibia; 3n in Botswana; 1n in South Africa

"Good location, great breakfast, but rooms a little tired.

Could have done without the 80's disco blasting out from a local restaurant for the best part of 12 hours on our first day though!" See all these reviews: 18n in Namibia

"Nice large room and very helpful owner and receptionist who are keen to help with any issue connected with a stay in Swakopmund. Only downside is the poor inter room sound proofing. Fridge in the room. Lovely breakfast served in a cosy dining room.

Can easily buy a permit in town for the Welwitschia Drive if doing that." See all these reviews: 21n in Namibia

"Cornerstone Guesthouse review"

2 nights Arrived 12 Sep 2022
"Now this was more like it for a B&B! We had a lovely room in the garden with our own patio area. It was comfortable and had all that we needed. We were surprised to be given a basic mobile phone, pre-programmed with the hosts' numbers, in case of emergencies; what a simple, but good idea.

Breakfast was plentiful and the host was welcoming, helpful and interested.

It was a quick walk into the town and the restaurant on the opposite side of the road was excellent for an evening meal.

I will pass on that the owners also have two self catering apartments in Swakop, suitable for larger groups, and they offer breakfast at the B&B." See all these reviews: 15n in Namibia; 7n in South Africa
