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.

Cornerstone Guesthouse review

Cornerstone was easy to find. It has a superb location, being only a short walk to the seafront and, importantly, to the top restaurants. The accommodation is both spacious and superb ... spotless. The owners are incredibly efficient and personable: Robyn and Peter in particular being very helpful. Breakfast is a very pleasant experience.

An excellent idea was the availability of an electronic fob giving us access to the property and to the private parking. In addition we were given a cell phone with preloaded emergency numbers for members of staff. Excellent service.

This was the base for a tour to Sandwich Harbour.

A place that one is reluctant to leave.

Cornerstone Guest house , ok

The Cornerstone Lodge was adequate, certainly the dining room was efficient in the mornings, breakfast good.

Staff were helpful

We felt the rooms were cold

These travellers also took part in the following activities whilst in Swakopmund and had the following to say:
Pelican Point kayaking:Loved it !
Jeanne was a brilliant guide who had thought of everything to make the morning a success.

Catamaran Boat cruise:
A good trip, though very cold.
Did feel that maybe blankets could have been provided..
We were kept waiting an hour before boarding
The sealion and pelicans on board provided entertainment!!

Cornerstone Guesthouse

Excellent position in respect of the town. Wonderful room and good food.

The owners are proud of their town and very friendly, and helpful with their advice and guidance of places to eat and things to do. E.g. we ate at The Jetty (The Tug needs booking weeks in advance for info) a very good meal, and we went to the museum which was very good too (we went back again after lunch).

We bought woolly wall hangings from the 'Karakulia' workshop; an experience in itself to see the artisans at work.

We left an ipod in the room safe and thought it lost. We drove on to our next lodge (Doro Nawas), and lo and behold it beat us there by hours; the owners had had it forwarded on a local flight. We were, and remain, very grateful for this excellent service.
