A superior, family run guesthouse
A very warm welcome. Lovely owners who could not do enough to make our stay comfortable. Reliable, free Wi-Fi. Good DSTV. Mobile phone to contact owners on 24 hour call very reassuring.
Secure off-road parking and premises. Owners recommended and made restaurant reservations for us. Lovely comforatable beds and soft linen. Breakfast choice and ambience in the dining room was excellent. International wall socket was a real plus. For a guest house, this place was exceptional.
Thin walls, meant we could hear people in the next room. Variable water temperature in room 7 a bit of an issue.
Great stay at Cornerstone
Very helpful and welcoming staff who booked us dinner on both nights and confirmed our kayaking.
Room was really nice, excellent location - very close to town, and secure. Enjoyed the little balcony area.
Nice place to spend a few nights.
Well Looked after at Cornerstone
A great welcome after the long drive from Sesriem.
Cornerstone had massive rooms, a lovely garden to sit in and served us a good breakfast.
It is a five minute walk to the sea front with the The Tug restaurant and less than this to the marvellous Kucki's Pub.
Pelican Point kayaking
Excellent - Brilliant wildlife experience
This was a superb trip.
Jeanne took us out to Pelican Point early and gave a great guided tour on route: of the wildlife, salt works etc. Paddling out to the seal colony was brilliant, the sea was alive with inquisitive pups and we spent over an hour playing with them.
Jeanne took photos+video which were emailed to us before we got back to the hotel and provided us with equipment, waterproof clothes and lunch.
Good place to stay in Swakopmund
Cornerstone is a very well located guesthouse - from here it is easy to walk to all the restaurants and attractions in the centre of town.
Our room was very comfortable, and breakfast in the morning was very good. The owners were assiduous in ensuring we had everything we needed, and made restaurant reservations on our behalf - they even provided a mobile phone pre-programmed with their contact numbers.
Very comfortable, good service at Cornerstone
Comfortable well equipped room with very, very helpful staff.
An excellent place to stay as a stop over or several nights conveniently situated close to the town centre but quiet.
Cornerstone Guesthouse review
This is a nice guest house quite close to the centre of town. It is quiet, with good facilities.
We were less enthused about Swakopmund, maybe because it was cold and foggy while we were there.
Pelican Point kayaking
This was an incredible experience. I have paddled with sea lion pups before, but never in these numbers. The water was boiling with all the pups swimming and jumping beside us. I had a wide grin for the entire 2 hours of paddling!
Cornerstone Guesthouse was fantastic
Perfect location near everything Robyn was who we dealt with for the most part and she was great.
She answered all my dumb questions, was always pleasant, and called various restaurants and activities for us. We only ate breakfast there which was good as were the rooms.
Would definitely return.

We were beginning to see a pattern. Expert Africa is great at choosing good places for us to spend the night.
The couple who owned and run the guesthouse couldn't have been more anxious to please.
Great food and good local advice.
Perfect base for Swakop
We couldn't recommend the Cornerstone Guesthouse highly enough.
Fantastic service - within 5 minutes of arriving we were checked in, and restaurants booked for us. They even gave us a mobile phone for the duration of our stay, programmed with contact numbers for assistance. Rooms are bright, comfortable and clean. Breakfast very good too.
