The owners of this motel are such lovely people and work very hard to provide the best service. Our room was quiet and comfortable, spacious (although shower recess shape could be a little small for some larger customers but guess that is the builders or architect in not being rectangular!) . Great outlook overlooking the gardened courtyard, and with all the facilities we could expect in a country town. The rates very reasonable, and the meal tasty and good home cooked food. My oysters Kilpatrick were superb!. Only thought was given it is not quite a la carte, that food prices seemed a little high, but the wine selection was very good indeed. Breakfast omelette with grain toast superb, and they will also provide a lunch package for the road if required! Very generous serves. Thanks Jodie for a great stay as after such a long drive felt so welcoming and comfortable! Will definitely visit again. Thanks for the great service! Enjoyed every moment of the stay. Had everything we needed.

Hello lovely people,

Thankyou for your time and most of all your lovely personalities. We also enjoyed the time you stayed with us. Thanks for all the great feedback I do'nt think you missed very much at all ( though next time you should utilise the pool) lol. We are looking forward to your return trip and many more great conversations :)

Kind Regards

Jodie/ Michael

nice clean spacious rooms with comfortable beds, friendly and helpful staff and owners, nice location. ate in the restaurant and the food was pretty good with generous portions. food not cheapest but everywhere we went in Australia the food seemed very expensive compared with back home (UK). one slight niggle was the wi fi hardly reached our room but all in all would recommend wholeheartedly.

Thankyou for the great feedback. We appreciate the time and effort you have gone to to give praise and insight. Our wifi has only just been updated to reach all the rooms in the motel and was only days old when you were here. We did discover a few issues and hopefully have rectified them. Thankyou for choosing us :) hoping you are enjoying you r travels :)

Kind Regards

Jodie & Michael

Thanks for another great stay at your hotel. It's a breath of fresh air in Rocky. Clean, spacious, garden setting that you can park right outside. Owners and staff are really friendly. Also includes a basic breakfast which is ideal for early departures.

My partner and I were in Rockhampton for a wedding. We chose to stay at the Capricorn Motel after reading the positive reviews on trip advisor. The rooms were spacious, bathrooms clean and modern and the beds were super comfortable. Our room had a lovely garden view with the pool insight. We would recommend this motel for other travellers.

This motel is set in large grounds and the rooms are lovely.
Check in by Jodie was smooth and very friendly
We only stayed the one night and had dinner their on that night.
My husband was not happy with his meal but Michael assured us Jodie would be looking into that on the morning we left. 5 prawns in the meal about half a cup of rice and a few Asian vegies in a watery tasteless sauce!!! $30.00 not value for money we didn't think. My meal was very nice and was indeed value for money.
We both had the exact same meal again while away on our trip at another restaurant further up the coast it was only $23.00 and had 12 large prawns in each meal much nicer flavour and on the whole a better meal than here at the Capricorn Motel and Conference Centre.

Hello,

Thankyou for your positive and negative comments. I appreciate your overall honesty. I am sincerely sorry in regards to your Thai Red curry prawns. Being one of our most popular dishes I am surprised and disturbed how wrong your dish sounded. I take extreme pride in the meals that we serve here and care about how our guests enjoy them. So please if you are ever this way again, please come and stay and I will personally make one for you myself at no cost.

Take care

Jodie

Nice room - the lady on front desk was very helpful, pointing us in the right direction for dinner.
Breakfast was supplied which was plentiful. Be aware that SatNav takes you to the wrong place! Overall a satisfactory stay.

Our family of 4 stayed here overnight while travelling north. We had an interconnecting family room that ticked all our boxes. It was spotlessly clean and pleasantly decorated. The room faced in towards a pool area and whilst there is a little traffic noise the highway didn't feel right on top of you. It is a perfect position especially if heading north. We even got a real coffee before heading off the next day.
