We stayed 3 nights at Cornerstone and this place is superb. The rooms are very nice and incredibly clean. The garden is very pleasant and each room has a little terrasse. The location (5 minutes walk to the centre) is also excellent. The breakfast is superb with a large selection of cold dishes, hot breakfast and different types of breads.... More

Peter, Robyn and Bettina run one of the loveliest guesthouses we've stayed in. The rooms are beautiful, spotless, spacious and equipped with everything you need. Our bed was supremely comfortable and it was lovely to have an outdoor seating area of our own. One of the things we really appreciated as travellers was the full size fridge, where we could... More

I have never experienced such attentive service from Peter, the owner. The rooms are modern, clean and lovely. Breakfast is fantastic, great spread and can have eggs fresh to order. Lovely music in the background. Overall fantastic stay.

Absolutely beautiful guesthouse run by the most helpful owner/operators. Nothing was too much trouble for these guys who went over and above to make our stay enjoyable and the rest of our trip easy. Lovely big bedrooms with good quality furnishings and linen. The whole place from the bedrooms to the grounds and dining room is kept immaculately. We wondered... More

We spent 2 nights at Cornerstone Guesthouse and wished we'd been able to stay longer. The owners are so helpful, friendly and willing to help make your stay as wonderful as possible. They helped us make bookings for dinner and for the desert tour we wanted to go on. A nice extra touch was providing us with a local mobile... More

One of our party had had his debit card stolen in Capetown just prior to arriving in Swakopmund and they were very helpful in allowing him to use their... More

Could not ask for more helpful and friendly management. They insist on booking restaurants as all need to be prebooked. The rooms are all fabulously clean and sparkling. TV, mini bar, tea and coffee, huge bathroom, secure parking, fab location Would 100% recommend

We stayed for three nights and found the Cornerstone guesthouse to be a wonderful stay throughout. The room was spotlessly clean, the beds were comfortable, and the breakfast was delicious. The gardens were immaculate and there is secure car parking. Wi-fi worked well for us. The best thing of all was the owner Peter and his team with their exceptional... More
