Peter and Robyn were so hospitable and extremely helpful. This is a most delightful place to stay. The breakfast was really delicious and the accomodation excellent. We would stay there again if we return to Namibia!

We stayed two nights at Cornerstone B&B. It is a single storey building with an additional two rooms in the garden. Very nice spacious room, good bed, TV, safe, huge bathroom (shower only). Good breakfast. Secure off street parking. 5/10 minutes walk from all 'attractions'. Very helpful staff.

It is situated quite centrally (a bit to the south) and it's just a 5 minutes walk...

Located in a great location for access to centre and the main route through, the guesthouse offers secure parking and a pleasant environment to stay, staff very friendly, rooms clean and tidy and breakfast was good. Ate at The Jetty, which was very good indeed, book before hand as it was busy.
