Luxury in Swakopmund
The Cornerstone is a very high quality B&B with a ring of rooms, each with its own veranda, surrounding a beautiful garden. The accommodation is spacious and comfortable (as seems to be the norm in Namibia) and we only sampled breakfasts which were very good.
It is a B&B so evening meals can easily be had in the many restaurants of Swakopmund - mostly within easy walking distance). The owner and his colleagues are friendly and helpful and can provide ideas and information on interesting things to see and do locally.
Perfect Place to Stay
Everything here was excellent from its position, overall accommodation, breakfasts and service. The owners and staff could not have been more welcoming and helpful. Many thanks to the gardener for washing our car !! Swakopmund was very busy of course and most of Windhoek were there ! The breakfasts were really good.
The drive from Helmeringhausen down the C14 was long and slow in a 2WD as the road was badly rutted so this was probably our longest day driving at 8 hours ! We were very pleased when Walvis Bay came into view.
Cornerstone Guesthouse was a pleasure to stay at and we have no hesitation in recommending this to other travellers. Would we stay there again ? Yes of course !

Central location and very good accomodation
We only had a short 15 or so hours here so difficult to provide much of a review. Room was very clean and modern and the owners were helpful, friendly and professional. Nothing to fault.Read more about the whole trip
Conveniently located Cornerstone Guesathouse
A very friendly guest house conveniently located at the South of Swapokmund town. Also close to the main shopping area and restaurants on the sea side. B&B only, but a very good breakfast, and very helpful owner and staff.
We had no problem parking on their premises tho' there are a limited number of places.
The Cornerstone Guesthouse was in a good location. The rooms were nice, no compliants. The gardens ourside the rooms were lovely. I just wish it had been warmer so we could have sat on our patio and enjoyed the flowers.
We arrived late on our first night and Robyn was very accomodating in meeting us at the hotel after she had left for the night. Pieter (the owner?) met us at breakfast and was very friendly and helpful in recommending restaurants. The Cornerstone was a nice stopover between the our trip from the south to the north.
Cornerstone Guesthouse review
We arrived in Swakopmund during a sandstorm, so the Cornerstone felt like a calm green oasis. The office staff were helpful and friendly and gave us good advice on things to do in the area. Bertina made a special effort to help us plan our day's activities.
Due to the high winds, we didn't go on a boat trip or guided drive into the desert, but did enjoy exploring the lagoon on our own. We recommend visiting the sea lion colony at Cape Cross.
Great stay at Cornerstone
A superbly run guesthouse with charm and warm hospitality. Our outing to Sandwich Harbour with Turnstone Tours was outstanding - our tour guide, Ernest, was extremely knowledgeable about the area and its birdlife.
The Jetty restaurant was very good - better than the Tug.
Wonderful stay at Cornerstone
A very tasteful and classy guesthouse. Helpful staff and great breakfasts.
Well placed for a walk into town and its great restaurants.
The room we were allocated was very clean and neat but a trifle small.
The breakfast was excellent and hosts very friendly and hospitable.
The Guesthouse is well located relative to the beachfront and the town
The excursion to Sandwich Harbour was excellent as was the guide Ernst Ritter. Very good birding there and at Walvis Bay.
Restaurants-The Jetty -very good with excellent service. The Tug- food excellent service not as good and wine a bit pricey given the quality.
