Reviews of Cornerstone Guesthouse
They do not necessarily represent the views of Expert Africa.
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.
Cornerstone Guesthouse Review
This was a fine base, within easy reach of restaurants in Swakopmund, fulfilling all our needs.
Excellent breakfasts and very comfortable.
Cornerstone Guesthouse review
Again a very positive experience of a guesthouse. Room was clean and well-presented, plenty of space and a very pleasant setting. Very helpful staff, who checked bookings for us and made dinner reservations etc. Plenty of suggestions of what to do in Swakopmund. Great breakfast.
We really enjoyed our time in Swakopmund which is a most unusual place and could have stayed longer as there were other things to do. (And we are not talking adventure sports!)
We organised a day trip to Sandwich Harbour for these travellers. They rated this as excellent, and commented:
Bruno is excellent! Absolutely outstanding. We were privileged to have Bruno as our driver/guide and we were with one other couple, one of whom was a professional wildlife photographer. It was an amazing experience from start to finish.
We saw so many birds and animals, the scenery was superb, we felt in safe and wise hands, even when we got stuck in the sand! Lunch was delicious.
We learned an incredible amount about so many different things.
Cornerstone Guesthouse review
Again very nice and with helpful and friendly staff.
The Turnstone tour was very good, great leader, but unfortunately we couldn't get to Sandwich Bay because the sand dunes had moved into the sea due to the previous high winds but still a very good day. He certainly found us lots of wildlife and birds.
Delightful place in Swakupmond
Not realising there is a cold ocean current up the coast of Namibia, the drop in temperature and the fog as we approached Swakupmond caught us by surprise. However the guesthouse was a delight, easy to find, very clean and tidy rooms set in a beautifully maintained garden with excellent food.
Distances between lodges had required we stay in Swakupmond despite not really wanting to explore the big towns this time, however we found the local museum while there which took up a significant part of the day to explore, giving us a lot of the history of Namibia, the town and its businesses as well as information on the tribes indigenous to Namibia. A thoroughly absorbing, modern museum.
Here we experienced to only rain in Namibia, quite heavy overnight with lots of lightning. We picked up a lot of mud on the car the next day, which remained with us for the rest of the trip.
Welcoming, friendly convenient.
It is a convenient place to stop. Guesthouse was very clean and the breakfast was very good. The proprietor was very welcoming and helpful.
Swokamund was a little bit disappointing but it was a convenient place to stop and look at the Skeleton Coast.
A Pretty Oasis in Swakumond
Lovely gardens, and a quite corner.
Peter was very helpful and directed us to the local Museum which was well worth the morning we spent there.
Delicious breakfasts on both days.
Very friendly, comfortable and efficient.
Extremely well presented property throughout in a convenient location.
Very nice 'suite' with all facilities. Charming hosts and excellent breakfast.
Very helpful re local activities and attractions. A good choice!
Great stay in Swakopmund
A very convenient and nice place to stay in Swakopmund. In a quiet area but just a short walk to the centre and restaurants.
The staff and owners are very friendly and helpful. Excellent breakfasts. We ate dinner at the Tug and the Jetty and can recommend both.
Also had an excellent lunch at the Hansa Hotel.
Very pleasant and attractive facility.
Staff went out of their way to help us with our difficulties with our vehicle.
Pleasant accommodation and nice surroundings.
