Superb location, this is a beautiful island with World Heritage status and the lodge is at the far end of the island, beautiful views overlooking Lovers Bay.This place only takes 20 guests and the total visitors are limited to 200, there are very few cars and bycles are provided as a good way to see the island. The main area... More

At first glance this Lodge seems expensive, but when you see and experience what's included its actually good value. The service is both warm and friendly and done without fanfare or pomp. And the food, simply delicious and interesting. The wine list is also excellent so once all this is included, a great place to stay. LH itself is a... More

Couldn't agree more with VoyageMaiden and several others. We stayed in February, in the Lidgbird Suite, and loved it. So comfortable, so in tune with the surroundings - it was occasionally hard to tear ourselves away from it to explore. A quick drive from the airport towards the twin peaks Lidgbird and Gower took us to Capella Lodge. While some... More

I have just reluctantly returned to reality after a four night stay at Capella Lodge, and was stunned when I read Greenflurry’s review. My experience was vastly different, with both the lodge and the island exceeding my rather high expectations. The lodge managers (a couple – Libby and Mark) were fabulous hosts – from the warm greeting on arrival at... More

I write this review having spent 7 nights at Capella Lodge in the Lidgbird Pavilion at approximately $2500.00 per night. It is the first review I have ever submitted but felt our experience should be relayed. Firstly, let me say that we loved Lord Howe Island – not because of Capella Lodge but because it is a unique and wonderful... More

If I could pick a perfect short break then this was it. Great food, good wine and wonderful service. Add to that the beauty of Lord Howe Island and you have the best of everything. All the positive previous reviews say it all really. The only thing I would point out and this was far more my husband's issue than... More

From the moment we step off the plan, the island offered a breathtaking view. From then on, everything was just perfect. We were picked up at the airport by Robyn and she drove us to Capella Lodge and took the time to explain everything to us. We stayed at the Makambo loft, and the views from our room are just... More

The moment we stepped off the plane, we knew that this was going to be a special holiday. The first person to greet us was Libby who took us under her wing with her typical Lord Howe Island welcome. Capella Lodge is a beautiful resort located in the south of the island away from the hustle and bustle of the... More

My wife and I eloped at Lord Howe Island and stayed at Capella late in December 2012. Capella was absolutely Divine! We often talk about how much we loved it and we enjoy looking back over our photos. The views were sublime, the food was insanely good, the wine, the beaches, the location, the staff. It was all perfect. And... More

This was our first trip to Lord Howe Island. It was just beautiful. We used bikes to get around as most people do but they have every type of transport you may need. We stayed at Capella Lodge which was the start of our amazing holiday. The views from the lodge are just breath taking whilst you are sipping on... More
