    Mark and Libby have one first-class property. Room serviced multiple times per day to the highest degree, staff exceeded expectation at every turn, meals and drinks in the OMG category, and attention to detail was beyond pedantic in the best possible way - all this and the ability to relax and feel like it was your own place. Add to this Lord Howe itself and it's a match made in heaven.

    Room Tip: Umm, the end one with the hot tub - can't remember the name but fantastic!

    Capella Lodge......luxury boutique accommodation, breathtaking views, friendly staff, delicious food, attention to detail with everything...........5 star all the way. Simply can't fault it!

    Without question the best accommodation I have ever stayed at. The views from Capella are absolutely spectacular & there is no other property on the island that compares......so happy we made the choice to stay at Capella!

    What makes Capella special is that it's located in an exclusive private area which gives you the feeling that you have Lord Howe Island to yourself! There are private beaches located just down the road & every time we went there, there was not a soul on the beach. Obviously the other beaches are must do experiences too but they are only a bike ride away. If you prefer not to ride, lodge staff are always more than happy to drop you off and pick up at your chosen location so you certainly aren't missing out by staying further away from the town.

    Capella can only be as good as the staff that work there and they certainly delivered. Their personalised service and care in giving you the best experience possible was much appreciated. All the staff I spoke to had a minimum 5 years under their belt and you could tell from their passion for their jobs & love of Lord Howe Island.

    The food was excellent, lots of variety and always generous portions and best of all you get to enjoy overlooking Mount Lidgbird & MountGower.....just to top off the fine dining!

    Can't wait to return to the Island one day & I'll be booking Capella again. I urge you to do the same.....you definitely won't regret it!!

    My wife and I spent 5 nights at Capella Lodge on our honeymoon in March. It was wonderful. Perfectly located on a paradise island. The food was first class and the wine list excellent. Like other reviewers I must praise the staff who were genuinely friendly, relentlessly helpful and helped make the stay the highlight of our trip.

    Anyone visiting Lord Howe Island and wishes to enjoy stunning views every day and relax in 'beach style' luxury must stay at Capella Lodge!

    What I enjoyed most about Capella is that it was so private, quiet and set away from other properties, which is how you want to feel on Lord Howe Island – isolated and in paradise!

    The lodge location is perfect and if the bike seems too much after days hiking the Lodge staff are more than happy to drive you wherever you like on the Island, pick you up or you can hire the golf buggy for a half or full day :)

    A short 5-10 minute stroll from the lodge are some hidden beaches that most visitors to the Island wouldn’t realise you can access!

    The staff at Capella become your friends and is always there to answer any questions, have a chat or make you a specialty cup of tea :)

    There was so much detail in everything and nothing is compromised.

    Food was amazing and never too much - a perfect balance at each meal.

    Team Capella - well done!

    You have defined Lord Howe Island luxury and I can not wait to return!

    We visited Capella last year and booked a return visit this year. Last year's stay was excellent so it was going to be interesting if the high standard we experienced was going to be maintained. Guess what? It was! The accommodation was excellent as was the food and wine but what really made our stay enjoyable was the staff. Robyn, Emily, Maddie, Lee, Kirra and the rest of the team were great ambassadors of the lodge. The standards of service were high and the friendliness made you feel welcome - making you wanting to come back...which we plan to do next year.

    Room Tip: There are only 9 rooms. We stayed in a Lagoon Loft Room which is very comfortable and provides a good view of the mountains.
