Very central for,the town (walking). Lovely rooms, fully equipped including a UK adapter to use. Lovely white linen bedding and towels. Unbelievably helpful, staff following our car being broken in to resulting in expensive camera equipment and a passport being stolen and other personal items.The owners couldn't do enough. Breakfast was delicious and can be ordered for a particular time.... More

We toured Namibia mostly staying in lodges. Cornerstone Guesthouse was pleasantly comfortable and reminiscent of B&Bs back home in UK. There was a large bathroom and well equipped room with plenty of storage, a TV. No biting insects! It is an easy place to be in and you feel well cared for by the hosts.

After a 7 hour drive across the desert from the south it was wonderful to arrive at the Cornerstone Guesthouse and receive such a warm welcome. Our room was clean and comfortable, the garden is small but heavenly, the breakfast is excellent. The most outstanding thing about this guesthouse is that nothing is too much trouble and Peter and his... More

Our agent booked us at this Guesthouse, and our only wish was that we could have spent more time here! It was so great to be able to actually walk the town. Our room was extra large with a full kitchen - if you had wanted to self cater it would have been perfect - for us it was just... More

We stayed 3 nights here, and would definitely recommend it. Very clean rooms and a nicely kept garden area with a homey feel to the place. Friendly owners were helpful with any questions we had about the town.
