Stayed here as part of a small tour group and had the most wonderful 2 nights (and days). Our huge beautifully decorated room was to die for - upstairs with a lovely balcony overlooking the lake with the most luxurious bathroom with huge spa bath. A great welcome from the staff who went out of their way to help at all times.
We had 2 evening dinners & 2 breakfasts, and they would all rate a 12 out of 10 (will reveiw this seperately). There was a wine tasking at 5pm on one of the days, showcasing Cape Lodge wines - a really nice touch.
The lovely sitting room in the main house had 2 huge drawers of DVD's to borrow for the player in our room and internet was available there as well. The gardens were beautifully maintained and even though it had been raining heavily, there were plenty of paths to wander around without getting too wet. The pool was also in a lovely setting and the tennis court looked the part as well. It was a struggle to actually push ourselves to get out and explore Margaret River (but of course we did), we would have loved to just sit around Cape Lodge !!!! Thoroughly recommend this divine place.
