Capella delivered the most exquisite holiday experience I've ever had. Having traveled various parts of the world, LHI is itself the most stunning place I've ever seen. Needless to say, it's hard to match any accommodation experience with such incredible beauty. But at Capella, well.. as I said - there are no words. The staff - impeccable service, friendly, they...

Our second time at Capella following an absolutely fabulous time several years ago. Calpella has, although seemingly impossible improved on what we experienced previously. Every aspect of this high class establishment is there to ensure your experience is unforgettable, in a great way.

Just returned yesterday from our second stay at Capella and can't wait to go back. Capella has the best views and surroundings of any of the accommodation on the island. Situated below the majesty of Mt Gower and Mt Lidgbird, you can gaze out to the sea to the West, watch the sun set, contemplate the green pastures, fringed by...

Just sitting on the deck of Capella after a very special four day break! The reviews are spot on - food, wine and service is without fault but what adds the special sauce is LHI itself. We both loved the quiet spots where u could just sit and take a moment to soak up the tranquility and beauty of LHI....

Rather than wax lyrical bout the great views, architecture, outrageously good food and fabulous staff, I'll just ask the question was it worth the $$. Without doubt yes. It's not often that we say at the end of a holiday that we will return, this is definitely one of those times though. See you next year.

My partner and I just returned from five flawless nights at the Capella Lodge. The experience was perfect - simply beyond expectations - and the staff has the service formula down to a science. Due to the popularity of the hotel, we had to book three nights in Lagoon Loft #2 and two nights in Makambo Loft #9. While the...

I have always wanted to visit Lord Howe and considering this was our honeymoon we read the reviews, researched the web and on recommendation chose to stay at Capella. We couldn't have been more impressed! The location, room, food, staff, facilities and attention to detail added to our instant love of the island! We only had 2 days at Capella...

Difficult to add much to what has already been said lots of times. Great location, lovely room, excellent food: add welcoming, attentive and knowledgeable staff and what more could one ask for?! Actually, better weather would have been nice, but that did not detract from a wonderful, if too short, stay. A great way to end our trip to NZ...

We have wanted to come to Capella Lodge for a while and to celebrate our 30th Wedding Anniversary, we thought it was the perfect destination. Capella Lodge did not disappoint. It is truly beautiful, and being small it has an intimacy which we truly liked. From the moment we were collected from the airport, we felt welcome and relaxed. Libby,...

This is a wonderful escape from the world. The Capella Lodge is simply fabulous with an environment and staff to help you relax completely. Having a small number of guests helps too. Its setting is stunning and each meal is a joy to receive. Wonderful people and an amazing Chef who brings you all these superb evening meals. All meals...
