Cape Lodge lives off the beauty of the surrounding area and the magnificence of the restaurant.
The hotel itself is really nothing more than a tired, dated and badly constructed motel. The rooms are poorly sound insulated and listening to the sound of a next door fan, air conditioner or God forbid - romantic escape, is not what you expect when you're paying top dollar. The spa baths are in a bathroom that you would expect in any motel room and the room does not lend itself to any idea of luxury or relaxation.
I would definitely visit Cape Lodge again - for the restaurant, but I would definitely not stay there. The rooms just aren't worth it and nor do they provide the luxury romantic get away they're selling.
