2 nights Arrived 4 Oct 2021
"A pleasant stay in Swakopmund, with many nearby restaurants and bars. We also found a laundry to wash our clothes. And we had to repair one of our tires. Sort of a German beach town. The boat trip to Walvis Bay was wonderful." See all these reviews: 15n in Namibia; 1n in South Africa

"Cornerstone Guesthouse review"

4 nights Arrived 29 Jun 2021
"Cornerstone was our favourite accommodation. We were very happy to have four nights here.

The room was very spacious, there was a lounge suite and a twin bed in the room with space to spare! The bathroom was also really large and modern. So for the first time we could really unpack, have our laundry done and find time for working on our photos, journal etc but of course also make trips.

The staff was very helpful and pleasant. Breakfast was good.

The location was also fine, we could walk into town, but unfortunately we could not go for a coffee or lunch as all places were closed because of lockdown.

From Swakopmund we also visited the Cape Cross Seal colony, very impressive. A trip to Walvis Bay was also interesting, seeing the flamingo's and walking along the waterfront." See all these reviews: 15n in Namibia

2 nights Arrived 30 Mar 2021
"We are a family of four (travelling with two teenagers). Our overall experience was very good at the Cornerstone Guesthouse.

We had everything we needed for our stopover at Swakopmund. The location is very central, only a few minutes from the beach, center, supermarkets, cash machines, etc. Breakfast was very good. The owners and the personnel were very friendly and helpful.

We would gladly recommend the Cornerstone Guesthouse to other travelers." See all these reviews: 12n in Namibia

"Great location and hospitality"

2 nights Arrived 19 Jan 2020
"Good location, easy to find, prompt acknowledgement, and secure parking. Good local advice not only about attractions, but also about safety. Provided a mobile phone with direct contact to owners.

The gardens were gorgeous, we wanted to stay longer just to enjoy the stunning garden and little patio.

Swakopmund was a good place to stay with plenty of restaurants, bars/cafes with good food and beverage service.

The breakfasts were fresh and tasty. The staff were very welcoming and prompt with their service of tea/coffee/the offer of cooked eggs.

The C35 and C34 on the way to Swakopmund had lots of road works (tarring the road) so transit times may change this year" See all these reviews: 15n in Namibia
