What a wonderful, peaceful boutique hotel. I enjoyed every moment of my stay, and would love to move in if possible! We stayed for 3 days in a Superior Spa Room (No. 18) which I would highly recommend.
After reading previous reviews, it is pleasing to note that management have listened to guest feedback. Bath salts are now complimentary (how bizarre that this was not the case before?!), an assortment of chic magazines and reading material was provided in the room, and most importantly, there is now a fabulous pool on site. From looking through past reviewers photos, the outdoor furniture appears to have been replaced in the bar/lounge area of the restaurant and it now befitting of its style.
Small touches such as complimentary afternoon tea and wine tasting each day were appreciated. The lounge area in the main lodge is a wonderful space to read, have a coffee and delight in the view. The grounds really are stunning.
I found the food at Cape Lodge to be sublime, and breakfast each morning was lovely. The staff are professional, knowledgeable and unobtrusive. It is such a pleasure to find excellent service. We had dinner in the restaurant one evening, and I am still having dreams about the king prawns and creme brulee that came my way.
The Margaret River wine region is one of my favourite places in the world. We have stayed at both Quay West Bunker Bay and Empire Retreat recently, and thought it couldn't get better than Empire. I think I may be wrong!
