After spending 5 glorious days at Capella, I have to say that it lived up to all my expectations and more. From the time we landed till we boarded our flights back home, every minute was time well spent. It surely was the best holiday we have had in a dream location. Special mention of thanks to Libby & Mark... More

This place is brilliant, I have nothing that I can fault. The staff are brilliant, the food is to die for, the accommodation is first class, we chose a Capella Suite which was very comfortable, there are larger suites but the Capella Suite was more then big enough for us. We decided on Capella Lodge as we had stayed at... More

Lovely 5 days spent at Capella. A perfect balance of fabulous food/ wine/ activity and relaxation. A BBQ on the beach I would recommend a must. The staff will drop your gear and food there. A lovely way to spend a day. Lord Howe itself is the most unspoilt place I have been. The water and beaches are beautiful. The... More

Everything is done to a very, very high standard here - the accommodation, the guest facilities, the food, the staff and the views! The standard of staffing is great - so friendly, interested, interesting and all can give good advice on what to do on the island. The beds are to die for - decisions had to be made -... More

We stayed 5 days at Capella during their slower season. You would never know as almost all rooms were occupied and the staff maintained a high level of service and enthusiasm. The food is excellent and creative with some unusual local ingredients. There was no repeat meals, and having extras was never a problem. The portions were modest but we... More

I finally bit the bullet and booked Capella having been to LHI several times and wanting to try Capella but it was either unavailable or not suitable. Arrival: Libby was on meet and greet and as the only arrival on the flight I was whisked away quickly and the next time I saw my luggage was in my suite. On... More

If you like to be one with nature but have all the luxuries, then Capella Lodge is ideal. Its a small hotel and the managers Libby and Mark run a fantastic service - making you fell relaxed and at home from the minute they pick you up to the drop off at the airport. Nothing is too much trouble. The... More
