We've spent the last 4 days in a 'Forrest View' suite. Very spacious suite, well appointed (lovely bed) and immaculately clean and trust me my partner is 'extremely particular'. The room was so large it rendered an otherwise average sized television somewhat inadequate for viewing from most of the room, especially the bed (or for middle aged eyes at least).
I had booked dinner in the restaurant for our first night and it was fantastic. The restaurant also doubles as the breakfast room and on all occasions the staff were attentive, polite, professional, yet unobtrusive. Service in WA is, as has been well documented, is pretty crap. It was an absolute pleasure to be served by people who took their job very professionally and displayed to utmost courtesy.
The food on all occasions was imaginative, satisfying, indeed faultless. Whilst one might expect establishments to make a showpiece of the evening menu, we were absolutely delighted with the effort and quality of the breakfast fare. Wine list was a little limited, with a heavy bias on the local fare but we had no trouble finding very pleasing drop to compliment our food.
Nothing more to add that hasn't already been said in previous effusive reviews.
Very happy to recommend Cape Lodge unreservedly and look forward to our next excuse to visit.
