The lake view suites or rooms are not as shown .Bathroom is nice however the room is very dark and old furniture .There was nothing on balcony .We had to ask for chairs to be brought up.Not 5 star .No help with luggage and they leave the doors open when cleaning .Our room was full of bugs and flies .The rest of stay and inclusions and restaurant is nice .I think the pics they show you with nice modern light furniture is of the garden suites or maybe some simply havent been re vamped.Do not pay the full price but get a deal and is ok .
Lovely relaxing stay. Gorgeous hotel.
Beautiful peaceful location between Margaret River and Yallingup. Many good wineries around. Rooms very spacious and nicely furnished. Superb food and friendly staff. Choice of breakfast and enjoyed 5 course degustation dinner with wine pairing. Could not fault it !
Great Cooking Class followed by superb Lunch. A wonderful way to celebrate our annual pilgrimage to Margaret River.
Each year we celebrate Xmas in July with a visit to Margaret River region with 11 of our friends. We have been doing this for 10 years running. However, given a certain global virus, we had to defer our 2020 trip until September. As part of our annual pilgrimage I organise a Surprise Friday Lunch. This year we ventured to Cape Lodge for a pre lunch Cooking Class hosted by the exceptional Tony Howell with support by his equally exceptional kitchen staff like Rosie. The class was followed by an equally exceptional Lunch coordinated by the outstanding Front of House Manager Neil Reveler. Our lunch long table looked out over the expansive , beautiful dam/lake and surrounding well established gardens ., From the day my wife and I walked into Cape Lodge in March 2020 to start planning the surprise September luncheon, the coordination and support from Neil was a revelation. On the day , the cooking class was such great fun and was highlighted by the wonderful bon vivant Tony, who is engaging, funny and caring. We arrived at 11.15 and the classes and superb 4 course lunch concluded at 4 pm. The whole day was faultless. Many thanks to Neil, Tony and their team for making our Xmas in September so memorable. The Surprise Luncheon was the best we have experienced over the last 10 years - it will be certainly hard to top in future years.Many thanks again to Cape Lodge and its superb staff for a truly fantastic , fun day
What more could I want?
Tucked away in the West Australian bush and adjacent to vineyards famous for its wine, lies an intimate Lodge full of comfort and “joie de vivre”. It is an extraordinary place because of its setting. The people who work here are warm and caring, but at the same time, diligent and ensure that your stay is everything it should be. The restaurant is remarkable. The food is outstanding. The attention to detail in its presentation augurs the subtlety of the exquisite balance of flavors in the food itself. Everything is as fresh as can be. On the tables and scattered around the property are bowls of fresh native flowers from the bush, lovingly arranged by expert hands. Walks around the bush at this time of year are more than a reward for effort. There are an amazing collection of birds from, the blue wrens zipping through the shrubs, to the crows and kookaburras who carp overhead. We have loved staying here and will come again
Great base for Margaret River. Glad we visited!
Cape Lodge is a lovely oasis of calm. A great place to relax, with a nice pool and lovely walks nearby (especially the Coast to Coast). Our room was very large - with a well-equipped bathroom, a sitting area and a lovely large King bed. There was also a fridge and a TV. The breakfast is a real highlight. There is "cooked to order", together with a fantastic array of fruit, yoghurt, baked goods, etc. There is "tea and cake" mid afternoon, then one free drink from 5-6. (We were asked if we would like a second glass of wine - and were surprised to see that this had been charged to our rooms). As another reviewer noted, the pricing is "variable". However, it cannot be cheap to run such a lovely place - so if the price is acceptable, then go ahead and book. I do not think that you will regret it!
