Our 2nd visit to Cornerstone having stayed in their An der Mole apartment last time. This is an equally delightful apartment & is, in my opinion, better situated as it's so close to the jetty. Great outside area & beautifully furnished apartment with everything that you need. Peter is an excellent host & of is worth booking in at the... More

Easy to find, brilliant location, very comfortable and secure (although single rooms are not quite as nice), delicious breakfast and helpful hosts. We booked onto Charly's Living Desert Tour before heading to Sossusvlei, and have to recommend their guide, Ernst, as one of the best we have ever been with in all of our years in Africa!

We spent two nights here in June and were very impressed. Our room was a good size, with large shower room. Everything was very clean, excellent beds, and we liked the veranda with table and chairs. Breakfast was very good, a nice buffet and the option of cooked eggs if desired. The best thing was the service. We had a... More

Cornerstone gets great reviews already but I wanted to add my vote because it's not just smart and clean and safe and quiet, with delicious breakfasts laid on. The people here - we've met Peter and also Robin and Bettina - really want you to make the most of Swakop, and offer great advice and help.

We stayed in their 3 bedroom apartment in a stunning location right by the beach. The owners and staff were really delightful and very efficient sorting out reservations and excursions. Really excellent breakfast too. Would highly recommend staying here.

We have just returned from a fabulous road trip through Namibia and Botswana with our two boys who were on varsity holiday. This was by far the best place we stayed at. Rooms were stunning, service was excellent (Bertina was so friendly, efficient and helpful.. nothing seemed to be any trouble). Its walking distance to everything around town including jetty...

During our 15-day drive around Namibia, we ended up our first week with a 3-night stay at this delightful guesthouse. From the welcoming decor to the soft linens to the elegant breakfast set up, we enjoyed this oasis of civility as a fabulous break between our safaris and long dusty drives. Just a short stroll found us in the city... More

Do yourself a favour and stay a night or two at this charming central b&b. These thoughtful hosts think of everything for your comfort and ease from heaters in rooms and wifi codes to plunger coffee and an ingenious map attached to their pamphlets. They gave us a comprehensive run down of all the best spots swakop had to offer and nothing...

Room 6 was nice and quiet, it had an outside and an inside sitting area with tv. Comfy bed, nice & clean. First rate staff, excellent breakfast and a very convenient location to walk into town and nearby restaurants. It is a guest house, but somehow a cut above expectations. Highly recommended. -Ask staff about permits required for traveling on... More

This was the best guesthouse we have ever stayed in and plan to go back next year. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The gardens are delightful. The breakfasts were excellent with a very good choice. Lovely bright dining room and I loved the crisp, white tablecloths. Our room was spacious and spotlessly clean and again lovely crisp white...
