Cape Cross

Significantly under-rated. Great hotel which wouldn't be out of place in a smart resort on the Med.

Better to book B&B as accessing the a la carte menu when on DBB takes some discussion.

The a la carte is great.

Nearby seal colony passes a good half-hour, but when you've seen the first 500 you've seen enough.

Comfortable overnight stop

This isolated Lodge is geared up for a good quality overnight stop. All rooms face the raging sea and our balcony was sheltered enough to sit out for a while.

Open-plan public area felt like a barn in daytime, but roaring fires in the evening gave it a cosier feel. Dinner was delicious, breakfast a bit plain. We ordered packed lunches for our long journey the following day and each one could have fed a family!

Very helpful staff and the manager came round to chat to guests during dinner, which was a nice touch.

Isolated but a great stay

We both really loved our stay at Cape Cross.

Yes it is rather isolated and remote but we loved being so close to the sea and the heavy fog which that part of the world is famous for.

The seal colony is definitely worth a visit, we loved watching the seals, the young babies trying to find their mothers, the squabbles and the seal soap opera played out on the beach.

Excellent accommodation in isolated location

For being the only accommodation in the area this was very good indeed. Huge bedroom including balcony with sea view.

Very friendly, talkative and informative waiters.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

A fine place to stay close to the huge seal colony. Not one of our favorites but no complaints either.

I'm guessing that since there are no other lodges in the area that feel like they don't have to be super attentive to their guests.

Cape Cross Lodge review

Location was superb, an excellent break on our drive from Swakopmund along the Skeleton Coast.

Cape Cross Lodge review

We spent one night here. Again staff were welcoming, room great (and very large!) with sea view.

The manager was very informative about the history of the area. We enjoyed the visit to the seal colony very much. On the way back to Swakopmund we also visited a wreck which we'd missed on the way out due to the fog.

Cape Cross Lodge review

An odd place. A Namibian winter possibly not the best time to stay, as there was no heating in the very large, very attractive rooms.

A fire was lit in the lounge/dining area which helped but the feeling was rather bleak.

However, it is the only place to stay if you wish to see the seals. And they were worth it.
