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.

Cape Cross Lodge

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.

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.

Mysterious Cape Cross

Disabled persons review: All areas of this lodge were easily accessible.

After walk along the beach, which was completely deserted, I turned round to look at the lodge through the coming mist, making it look very eerie (but in a good way!)

Lovely to wake to the noise of the crashing waves.

The seal sanctuary is worth a visit but take a peg for your nose.

Dramatic location

Our hosts in Swakopmund advised us to delay our departure for Cape Cross until the afternoon since the wind had shifted to the east and there was a risk of sandstorms early in the day. But we made good time driving north on the salt road and arrived in time to visit the fur seal colony, have a pleasant walk along the deserted endless beach, and return to the lodge to watch the sun setting over the ocean.

Our ground floor room was big, with doors opening on to a small patio and the beach.The bathroom with shower was small but functional. With no heating in the room we expected it to be cold during the night, so left all the lights on while we went for dinner, which certainly took the chill off. With only four other guests staying overnight the large dining room was not exactly cosy, but the meal and smiling service made up for that. A set menu starter of beef carpaccio was followed by tasty butternut squash soup, a choice of sole on the bone or oryx steak, and pumpkin pie to finish. The oryx steak was tender enough to be cut with the fish knife used for the sole and the whole meal was probably the best of the holiday.

Staff were friendly and helpful, even allowing use of the PC at reception to access the internet.
