...Cape Lodge is probably our favourite place to stay in WA for a special occasion! It provides quality service and amenities in a magical bush/garden/lake setting. The birds are a bonus! The staff are very welcoming to returning guests. We stayed in an upstairs garden suite and it was perfect for a wedding anniversay getaway! Spacious, modern and comfortable. We received a celebratory wine & fruit! We have the impression that management is very receptive to feedback - as is should be but sadly doesnt happen sometimes.
The location is ideal within the wider Margaret River area. If there is a downside it might be the fact that evening dining away from the hotel means a dark windy drive elsewhere - so stay with the intention of dining in the very good restaurant.
The restaurant is of a high standard - service and food we couldnt fault. The wine list as expected for the area, is good. BUT - where are the craft beers guys?! You could do better there for those who dont drink wine. The ambience is great. We had a very loud "lord of the English manor" fellow guest at the next table one evening who provided not so positive entertainment for all. Staff handled this very professionally indeed. Breakfast was high quality and served by friendly staff.
Would we recommend? - oh yes certainly. Cape Lodge is expensive but it delivers in terms of value for money. We would go back more often if circumstances allowed.
