Roomy, bright & well stocked clean rooms surrounding a lovely garden with your own outdoor balcony area along with very welcoming & helpful staff make this place a little gem. Location is excellent for wandering into town, breakfasts were very good indeed & nothing was too much trouble. Good Wifi reception. I can highly recommend this guesthouse

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.

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.
