Our stay at the Cornerstone Guesthouse was unfortunately very short, but very enjoyable nonetheless. My husband and I spent one night here in transit from Damaraland to Sossusvlei. The staff at the guesthouse was very welcoming and helpful. Our room was very spacious and clean, although quite humid with no A/C. The location was wonderful- an easy walk to all... More

Thank you very much for your review. Yes it has been an exceptionally hot December so I hope the ceiling fans were able to keep you cool. Generally speaking air conditioners are not a necessity at the coast. In fact heaters which we do have are far more necessary in the winter. More

Rooms were large and spotless. Bathroom, bedroom, small living room and nice sized kitchen. 4 burner stove, full sized refrigerator with honor bar. I only stayed one night but everyone I had contact with was extremely pleasant and helpful. I was having problems with my phone and wanted to send some texts. The owner lent me his phone and said...

We are on a long road trip and the Cornerstone is our half way point. It's immaculate from the bedrooms to the gardens. Staff are very helpful despite out numerous requests for restaurant booking changes. Breakfast is great and the location is an easy walk to the centre of town. The ceiling fans are effective and unlike everywhere else they... More

This GH is fantastic! Actually it was the best place where we stayed in Namibia. Peter, his wife and the staff were really nice and sincerely caring. This GH is impeccable: Clean, Beautiful decorated; full of details...even the toilet paper has lavender printed on it! The beds are really comfortable and the self contained apartment that we rent was wonderful.... More

Stayed at the guest house over Christmas period. Occupied both number 1 an 2 rooms. Spotlessly clean, nothing too much trouble. Ideal location for both the town centre and the beach. 2 minute walk to both.....Robin and all thank you solo much for a great stay, will be back.

If we are spending time in Swakopmund we always choose to stay either at the Cornerstone Guesthouse (B&B) or in one of the 3 self-catering luxury apartments. This past weekend we stayed at the An der Mole Self Catering apartment. Ideal for a family we made good use of the large patio overlooking the sea and the children enjoyed safe... More

We couldn't get in Cornerstone as they were full but we stayed 2 nights at their Moringa Apartment which was superb & we took breakfast at Cornerstone each morning - including the first morning when they opened early by 20 mins especially for us to have breakfast before we had a full day kayaking with seals & a 4x4 dunes...

My last response was for the wrong review! this is the correct one Thank you very much for your glowing review. I think because Moringa Gardens resorts under Cornerstone Guesthouse as do our other apartments it does not have its own review site. I think because they all respond to the same email address they are put together. I am... More

Convenient location. Comfortable, clean, good wifi, secure patking and site. Good breakfast. Helpful staff who helped organise three trips, brilliant events (quad biking, sea trip to see seals, and desert small animal tour). Great. Just my sort of place. Just book it, you won't be disasppointed.

We could not have been happier. Everything was perfect. Peter and Margo Bassingthwaighte were genuinely helpful and friendly. Their hospitality was natural. Everything was clean, quiet and comfortable. The breakfast was superb. Cornerstone is also very well located. The free Internet was the fastest of any of the B&B we stayed at. Recommend it without reservation.
