“Great Position, Value and Service”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

Had a girls week away (meaning Mums and Daughters). Capricorn One was perfect for all our needs, especially after theme park from 8-5 to come home and relax in the pool and sauna before preparing a meal.
I only wish we stayed longer so I could enjoy the beach strolls every morning.
Definitely a return visit is in order.

Not the flashiest accommodation around, but would be the best value for money. Rooms had amazing views and where ideally suited to our family of 4. We walked into surfers every single night of our 10 night stay. We will be booking again next year.

Great home away from home. Great view of the beach and the city. Nice size rooms, cupboards, kitchen and bathrooms.
Laundry in the room so you can do all your washing regularly.
No air con but not needed as the sea breeze was amazing.
Perfect location.
Great pool / spa which was definately a favourite of my son.
Only negative which is no fault of Capricorn is the roadworks which seemed to be never ending on a weeknight which although we were 17 floors up it was still very loud in our bed rooms.
Great place and would definately come back next time visiting the Gold Coast.

Stayed here for 6 days and it was amazing! Love the awesome views from the balcony to the open sea. Wish we are still there. The rooms are perfect and the kitchen..i cant ask for more! We cooked almost everyday. We used all the utilities..the sauna, jacuzzi and play tennis. Just a walking distance to the beautiful beach. It's a perfect holiday and definitely we'll be back to Capricorn One!

We took a studio room on the 3rd floor to spend 3 lazy days at Port Macquarie. The room had been recently refurbished so it was nice to have a new bathroom suit with a great shower and nice kitchenette, the room had a small 1m deep balcony looking towards the water about 50m away which was nice. The managers Steve and Brenda were very helpful and polite. There are great places to eat all within 2 mins walk of this motel so location is great. Would come back for sure.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the water end
