We only stayed for one night but the room was very light and very clean. It had everything we needed from the kettle to a great hot shower. I loved the touch of lavender around the room. The staff were very accommodating and recommended places in town to eat. The guesthouse is only a short walk from the beach and...

This was a great place to stay for a couple of nights. The staff were delightful and couldn't do enough to accommodate some food issues. I am gluten intolerant and they had gone to the trouble of making sure they had gluten free food for breakfast, which was amazing. We were given a local phone for the duration of our...

Rooms are beautiful and with a small outside area in front, lovely little garden and a great breakfast. Bettina, the manager, is fantastic, very friendly and will offer help with anything you can think of. Cornerstone is located a short walk from the center as well as from the beach. Excellent place.

I fell in love with this place. I was on a 21 day camping safari and this was a lovely little break from the tents. I would recommend this to anyone. The rooms were lovely with a kettle and tv. The bathrooms were very nice. Very comfortable sleep. Breakfast was unbelievable. The owners were very accommodating and welcoming.

this is a great B&B to day. From the minute you arrive until you leave you are made very welcome by all the staff and nothing is too much trouble. We stayed in room5 which was very nice with a large terrace area and the room was good along with a very spacious bathroom. Ask for any help and they...

We are a family of three and stayed 2 nights in a spacious family room mid December. The room was clean and had everything we could wish for. Breakfast was fantastic - lots of choices and excellent quality. Bettiina, who runs the guesthouse, is very helpful no matter whether you need help with making dinner reservations, making a phone call...

The Cornerstone in Swakopmundt stands head and shoulders above most B&Bs that I have stayed in anywhere in the world. This delightful venue is as close to perfect in all respects. From the immaculately groomed gardens to the extremely tastefully decorated dining and lounge area to the extremely comfortable self catering suite that my travel companion and I selected, Cornerstone...

This is a real gem. Stayed for 2 nights in December - 10th and 11th - having booked some months ahead (very popular choice so best to book early) Clean, spacious, modern room with all amenities including face flannels and tissues (which we don't find in all guest houses and it makes a difference). Rooms have private veranda. Excellent breakfast...

I must say thank you to Betina, she was so helpful. She arranged our daily adventures, even helped me look for new accomodation when we decided to change the route of our tour. She even made dinner reservations for us. I must say wow!!!! We are not used to this high levels of services in SA. It was refreshing. We...

Unfortunately we only stayed one night in this appartment. It had absolutely everything you could wish for. Very nice, modern and light furniture, full kitchen, excellent beds, fantastic bathrooms, a little garden with nice garden furniture and direct views at the Atlantic. It even had a laundry machine, which came in very handy! And there was free wifi. The garage...
