"Extremely comfortable and very friendly hosts"
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." See all these reviews: 17n in Namibia

"Excellent position in a quiet residential are"
Gorgeous well maintained pretty gardens. The owners were away but the 2 ladies who ran the place were really friendly, welcoming & helpful as were the staff.
Great dining room with an excellent breakfast served both mornings.Great to be able to put the car safely away & to be near enough to town to sample a good choice of restaurants on foot!

My husband needed a dentist and we called in advance and Peter, the owner, arranged an appointment locally and all was done and dusted the day after we arrived.

"Perfect attention to detail "
Peter, the owner, was very helpful and we appreciated the provision of mobile phones so that guests could contact him if needed. The attention to detail was impressive - for example there was a post box for guest mail. The rooms were comfortably furnished and spotless. Breakfasts were good. We enjoyed sitting on our terrace in the late afternoon watching all the birds that visited the garden.
Peter suggested a visit to the local museum - we went there and would also recommend it. Take eye shades for sleeping if you are sensitive to light as there is a street lamp just by the pedestrian gate." See all these reviews: 19n in Namibia
"Cornerstone Guesthouse review"
"Beautifully clean with a very good location"
We ate the first night at Kucki's Pub which was good but really just pub food. The second night we ate at The Tug.This is fantastic but you must book as it is very popular. Its the best John Dory I have ever eaten. We also visited the gem stone factory and the museum which are both worth a visit. We also did the Welwitchia Drive where you must get a permit in town before you go for negligible cost but we were never asked to show it. It is spectacular.
It is noticeably colder in Swakop but a warm fleece is enough unless you are particularly susceptible to the cold.
We then drove up the coast to the seal colony. Amazing site and very smelly. Its a long drive but worth it." See all these reviews: 15n in Namibia
