We stayed in the falt in town, it was beautiful and very well located. The high ceilling and the light delighted us. The booking was easy and so was the collection of the keys. The staff at reception is very kind and efficient.

Very pleasant little gated residence close to centre of Swakopmund. Room was delightful and the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Staff were happy to book restaurants and provide a small map to show you where attractions and restaurants are located. Lovely breakfasts. Would highly recommend.

This guesthouse is just what you need. Friendly staff with helpful information, very clean rooms, great breakfast and lovely garden. in addition, it is located close to the main street, so that center of town is in walking distance. This is a great value for money.

An Der Mole is a separate apartment also run by Cornerstone Guesthouse. It has a sea view and is immaculate. It is an absolutely fantastic place to stay in Swakopmund. It is fully equipped and painfully clean and neat. Overlooking the sea you can sit on the balcony for hours. It is also near to shops and restaurants. You cannot...

Best place to stay in Swakopmund. Seems to be the only place to offer after hours emergency hotline. For anyone travelling on their own to Cornerstone Guesthouse, pls DO NOT follow your GPS; for some unknown reason it will not lead you there; use map or call for directions instead.

We move out tomorrow sadly as they are so booked up. Very central, divine breakfasts and very warm accommodating staff. We love this place, beautifully decorated with a lavender theme running through the decor and lovely gardens. Our hosts have been so friendly and helpful we just can't fault this place. HIGHLY recommended.
