From Bongani at reception to the owner Lyn and everyone in between, our stay at the Cornerstone lodge was fantastic. Delicious hot breakfast, relaxing by the pool, and assistance to call a taxi to get around town were only a few of the amenities that we found. Looking forward to any excuse to go back...I didn't want to leave!

The catch phrase "a home away from home" was a the source of my smirk since I had heard it all before and I did not find the magic substitute for home. However, when I visited Cornerstone Guest Lodge (CGL) on Saturday 28 November with my lovely wife who had just turned 56, I realised that the other establishments could...

This is a well managed guest house with 16 rooms well situated near the CSIR, the N1 and Lynnwood Bridge. Excellent bed and room amenities. Great breakfast. I did not receive any WiFi information nor was there free reception. Two very nice pools on the property. Great stay.

We booked to stay at the Cornerstone Lodge at the beginning and end of our holiday on the Rovos Train. We were met by Lyn at the airport and taken to the accommodation which was lovely and peaceful.

“Each room is so nice, it is difficult to really say which is the best room i think for a young couple the''Roman..' room would be nice , ''The Cottage '' is right near a pool , but to be honest one would just need to tell Lyn their requirements and she would advise ,”
