Lord Howe Island and Capella Lodge had my wife and me saying "wow" so many times that it became the word that we used all of the time while on the island. Lord Howe Island provides a spectacular setting and Capella Lodge takes advantage of its location and therefore has the amazing scenery as its backdrop. Our room was a... More

We just returned from a week's stay on beautiful pristine Lord Howe Island. We are so happy we chose The Capella Lodge. Such a comfortable well run boutique hotel. The food was just amazing! Pete the chef impressed us even more each and every night. The staff is extremely attentive and so eager to please with suggestions on what to... More

Lord Howe is a wonderful place to visit. Great walks ranging from easy to "difficult" - it is an island so climate can be changeable - Capllea was a lovely place to stay. It was really really nice not to be served meal so big that you could not do justice to the food. We were indulged with the quality... More

Had a wonderful week at Capella, first visit to Lord Howe and hopefully not the last. Food, wine, service and accommodation was faultless. Libby and Mark and the crew made the stay memorable. Everyone on the island is so friendly and it is great to be able to ride bikes and walk without worrying about traffic!

Excellent experience. Not just at Capella, but the whole Island and surrounds. Libby & Mark were very attentive and accommodating. The staff were always there to provide us the "stay" we read and heard about. Great food and wine offerings. The room and main areas were perfect for a chat or some romantic time. The island is a gem! I'd... More

Outstanding personal service from the moment Libby or Mark meet the plane to the moment you leave. With only 9 rooms, you are known by name and the service is warm and welcoming. Terrific friendly staff. Capella is informal, so no heels or make up needed. Food and drinks are included and of a vey high standard - especially given... More

Capella is a lovely place to spend time on this tiny island. We were picked up from the small airport by manager Libby for the (very) short drive to the lodge. The place and its wonderful staff are immediately welcoming and relaxing, with an informality suited to the island setting. Food and drinks were a highlight - meals of excellent... More

I was returning to Lord Howe Island after 20+ years. For my wife, it was her first visit. We both gave a collective "Wow!" as we got off the plane. Lord Howe is only a 2 hour direct flight from Sydney but is a million miles from big city hustle and bustle. The island only allows 400 visitors at any... More

We knew we needed time to get adjusted to the time change before a meeting in Sydney, so we spent 3 days at Capella Lodge: what an awesome place! The food was great, especially the Tuesday night tasting menu with wine pairings and the people were special. It is a small island and the hikes are fantastic! We rented a... More

This was my first visit to Capella and I was tentative because of the price. Ask me now and I would gladly pay double, the food was unbelievable, location was spectacular and the staff were fantastic. Lord Howe is like a user friendly Jurassic Park and the charm of the place has been captured by the staff who were absolutely... More
