Highly recommended B&B

Room was functional but had everything you needed (including a bath!). Lots of hot water. The breakfast room was lovely and breakfast was excellent (best cooked eggs of our whole trip).

It would have been good to be forewarned regarding the difficulty of booking a restaurant for the evening meal. Had we known of this beforehand we would have booked the nearest good restaurant, The Tug, in advance, for at least the first night. My advice to travellers would be to do some research and book restaurants for all evenings in advance.

Cornerstone was only 5 minutes walk from The Tug.

A tranquil oasis in Swakapomund

This was a very pleasant quiet, well located overnight stay for us. The staff were very helpful in relation to booking a restaurant for us and undertaking photocopying for us in relation to our car hire.

We also appreciated the quality of the breakfast buffet and the care taken with the hot component that was cooked to order.

clean, quiet, nice place

The Cornerstone guesthouse has relatively small, very clean rooms in a very quiet location convenient to the "downtown" and the beach. Excellent breakfast and friendly staff. The room has a nice patio.

It was a fine base for exploring Swakopmund. We combined this with the Turnstone tour of Sandwich harbour which is highly worthwhile.

Our guide was entertaining, our fellow guests fascinating and we met some very friendly jackal, a hyena active in the daytime, seals, and lots and lots of flamingos and other sea birds.

Cornerstone was excellent B&B

After a long but incredible drive through the Namib-Naukluft National Park we reached Swakopmund and arrived at the fabulous Cornerstone Guesthouse. Our room was so spacious, comfortable and well appointed.

The owners were lovely and obviously take great pride in creating a homely and welcoming stay for their guests. Breakfast was excellent.

Only one night here but made for a restful stopover before travelling on to Damaraland. We dined at The Tug Restaurant by the jetty and enjoyed great seafood overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.

Great place to stay.

The accommodation was on the edge of the town. The garden was well kept and it was a lovely quiet spot but easy to walk into the centre from. Friendly and helpful staff. Parking off road but a tight squeeze!

The restaurants in Swakopmund were plentiful. We were pleased that we had pre-booked the Tug which had a great ambiance. We had a drink at the Jetty but it's closed on a Monday, so couldn't go there for our second night. We went to the Ocean Cellar instead which was a lovely upmarket place with fun staff, thoroughly recommended.

Swakopmund had interesting buildings and good restaurants and the landscape is different from all our other stop overs, as you're by the sea and have the opportunity to see the flamingos but there's not much else here. The main reason for our visit was to kayak with seals and that's not to be missed!

Quality accommodation

A great couple of nights here in Swakopmund. We had rather surprisingly a spacious apartment that was very well appointed.

Great service from all the staff especially Robyn and Peter.

Highly recommended.

Extremely comfortable and very friendly hosts

To us, Cornerstone was more than a Guesthouse - our room was spotless and was fitted to a very high standard with a new bathroom and luxury bed linen. A welcoming snack with tea & coffee making facilities, TV and good Wi-Fi and our own outdoor shaded seating area.

The owners were a very pleasant couple who had time to talk. Breakfast was excellent - such a good array of foodstuff for such a small enterprise.

We were in a quiet residential part of town, set back from the seafront and just a short walk to the centre of Swakopmund. An ideal place to stay and one we can thoroughly recommend.

A bit old fashioned but so is Swakopmund

For us the best part of visiting Swakopmund was the drive up the coast to Hentjes Bay and then over the Namib Desert.

Good breakfast, nice people and close to town centre.
