Our only experience of a "town" stay in Namibia. Peter was a charming host and makes an excellent breakfast. He was also very helpful with regard to the many activities in the area and our onward travel. Definitely recommended.

My wife and I stayed two nights in July 2014, having driven up from Sossusvlei. The room was clean and comfortable and looked out on to a beautifully kept garden area, which we could enjoy thanks to the table and chairs in the porch way. The bathroom had a large shower and the room itself was well-equipped. Breakfast was excellent... More

Very welcoming with the beautiful garden and lovely fresh, clean room ( with a double bed!) Robyn, in reception, was delightful & so helpful. We left our dirty laundry on the bed and came back from our excursion to find it washed, ironed and folded and ready to pack away, so appreciated. Enjoyed our breakfasts too. Would definitely stay here... More

This is the best B&B we have ever come across. Receptionist Robyn gave us a warm welcome, l advised us on restaurants and even booked us a table. Our room was large, well-equipped and clean. The bed was comfortable. The bathroom was massive with a bath, a shower and his and hers basins! We had a sitting area outside. Wifi... More

Have recently returned from Namibia, where we spent two nights at the Cornerstone guesthouse. We were impressed from the moment we stepped into the beautiful garden, and the very warm welcome we received. Everything was immaculate, attention to detail resulted into a very high standard. The rooms are very pleasant, with a small private outside sitting area. It is also... More

Swakopmund has awesome sand dunes in the surrounding areas, a beautiful ocean front and then there is Cornerstone Guesthouse, a gem of a B&B in a quiet corner of this peaceful seaside town. Above all, it is run by some of the nicest and dedicated people you would ever meet. We thoroughly enjoyed our four consecutive nights here in June.... More

Although we wanted to book a B+B room, we ended up staying at the Atlantic apartment; which was superb. The apartment has 3 bedrooms, so for the 2 of us it was incredibly spacious. It was clean and modern, and had great views over the ocean. There is a private garage for your car, and a small garden out front.... More

When we unintentionally locked one of our party on the balcony with his head in a book and locked up and went for breakfast at the guesthouse they instantly saw the amusing side to the predicament and offered to quickly go and release him - and they did! My daughter will not hesitate to rebook for her next business trip... More

Had a very relaxing stay at this ideally located accommodation. Very easy to walk into town from here. The rooms are very pleasant. The biscuits in the room were sensational. The breakfast was a delight. Nothing was too much trouble for Peter and his staff adding to a very enjoyable stay.a
