We were recommended this hotel by a friend so decided to trust their judgement. It looked very nice in the photo and I was looking forward to our stay but for the extortionate price I had hoped for better. Our room, which was changed because our booking was mixed up, had a nice view over the lake and was ok but not particularly luxurious and seems to be in need of an update. The design of the tiny balcony was annoying, every time you wanted to open out the door you had to move the outside table and chairs! We thought the service in the restaurant lacked professionalism, for instance with just four tables occupied one morning for breakfast our order was mixed up with another table and was slow. The food again was ok but not spectacular. The decor in the cavernous restaurant was dull and outdated. Having spoken to someone who lives in the area they told us Cape Lodge used to be a smaller place with a more intimate setting for the restaurant, shame it has changed.
