We can't recommend Capella Lodge highly enough. Yes it is expensive. Yes, Lord Howe isn't the easiest to get to. But it really is worth every cent. Every last detail in the hotel is perfect. We visited on our "mini-moon" after our wedding and were truly blown away with how well they looked after us. As the hotel is tucked...

We had a 7 day break on this beautiful island in this fantastic lodge. On our last visit a couple of years ago we commented on how much we loved the place and it has outdone itself again. We are great fans of the way Mark and Libby run this place - they have an easy and relaxed approach, which...

From Airport Pickup to Airport Drop-off our week staying at Capella was simply superb. When we departed yesterday our one thought was how great the feeling is to wish we had a couple of more days to enjoy our holiday. All members of staff were professional, friendly and unobtrusive whilst ensuring we were fully involved in all activities, of our...

We had to continue pinching ourselves each day as our stay couldn't have been any more wonderful - the staff, the views, the grounds, the food and drinks were all five star. This was the best trip together we've ever had and staying at Capella Lodge was absolute heaven. I highly recommend it!

This has to be the best service we have received in Australia, if not in any of our travels. Relaxed, friendly and knowledgeable staff made this stay for us. Combine the amazing scenery on-top of the fantastic food from very creative and flexible back of house team meant we only wanted to extend our stay for another few nights. (We...

We eloped here to Capella Lodge, Lord Howe Island, in 2006 and had a wonderful wedding - one that involved Capella's managers as witnesses and the Island's Deputy Administrator taking on the role of Celebrant. Capella Lodge was very a special place then and it's still a very special place now, 10 years later. The excellent service, lovely rooms, delicious...

For years friends raved about how beautiful, unspoiled and magical this small, volcanic outcrop, World Heritage listed, paradise island is and we had it on our bucket list. However, being part of New South Wales our home state, and only a 2 hour flight away, we had neglected coming as opposed to venturing farther afield. What a mistake! There aren't...

Great food, wonderful service, lovely fine dining restaurant, innovative a la carte menu, would easily meet and exceed in many cases Sydney top restaurant standard.

Can't say enough positive things about the Capella or Lord Howe Island. We went for our anniversary earlier this year and had the best time. The Lodge and the service in particular really made the trip special. Everyone goes well out of their way to make sure you are having the best time possible (whatever that might be for you)....
