A short break in Swakopmund.

We spent two days here and really enjoyed it.

Our room had everything including a charming terrace with table and chairs set in a lovely interesting garden. The staff here were excellent, friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were great. The Cornerstone is a short walk to shops and restaurants.

We had our washing done here; it was quick and efficient and good value. We would definitely come again.

Cornerstone Guesthouse review

Fine for a short stop-over - a bit short on character, but very helpful people.

Take a sleep mask, as bright street lights shone into our room all night ( a bit of a shock after Etendenka).

Nice big room and bathroom, with terrace for sitting outside.

Whilst staying here these travellers did the kayaking with seals excursion and commented:

Great fun - especially as the baby seals were just learning to swim.!

Jean was terrific and provided us with all the gear we needed. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole morning - and were amazed to receive her videos of us the same afternoon.

Thoroughly recommend it - though to some seeing quite a few dead baby seals around us on the beach was upsetting: Maybe a bit more of an explanation about how/why etc might be helpful?

Cornerstone Guesthouse review

A very nice city guest house. All the facilities were fine. Lots of good restaurants within easy walking distance. The main reason to stay here was the day out with turnstone tours which was a mind-blowing drive over the biggest sand dunes in the world and some excellent bird spotting.

Beautifully clean and well located

Very friendly welcome and we were very well looked after at breakfast.

The whole place is immaculately clean, although the smell of toilet cleaner was rather overwhelming in the small room.

Great location, easy to walk to restaurants etc.

clean, tidy, and right downtown

The prices in the mini bar were better than the grocery store!

During their stay these travellers joined a guided day trip to Sandwich Harbour. Here's what they said about it:
We ran down a sand dune, saw thousands of pelicans, and had stunning views of the Atlantic ocean from atop stand dunes.

Cornerstone Guesthouse review

We found the owner Peter and his staff to be very helpful and supportive, particularly with our difficulties with the car company.

Turnstone Tours were brilliant and I would highly recommend them to anyone visiting this area.

Immaculate guesthouse

Very helpful receptionist who confirmed our reservations and organised a taxi. The guesthouse is surrounded by charming gardens which reflect the pristine décor.

Breakfasts were excellent. On our first night we ate at The Wreck, an upstairs restaurant with views over the beach on the opposite side of town. Delicious food.
On our second night we walked to Kucke's Pub for another excellent meal. Beware of large portions though.

Cornerstone Guesthouse was comfortable

This is located fairly close to both the town centre and the beach area and so was convenient for exploring Swakopmund. Room was clean and comfortable and the garden was pretty and well kept.

Just no 'wow factor' when compared to the other places we stayed in Namibia.
