Stayed one night at Capricorn with a family group. Booking made when ferry transfer to an offshore island was unexpectedly delayed. We wanted somewhere close to centre of town and this was the recommendation of the Suva visitor centre.
It is a short walk to the Suva markets, Cummings Street and the MH shopping Centre and the nearby shops and restaurants. It is up a steep hill and our rooms were up two flights of stairs so it was a bit of a huff and puff to get there on foot. Worth it though to walk into a very large room with double bed, tv,aircon, kitchen, bathroom and outdoor area with views looking down over
Suva harbor. Rooms were light and airy, very clean and well appointed. Bed gave us a good sleep. Plenty of space and seating for the seven of us in our party to visit from apartment to apartment without being crowded.
The hotel has a pool and a barbecue area which was looked at but not used because it was not warm in Suva. Reception was staffed all the time we were there. They have a basic range of wine and beer but no bar or restaurant. That was not a problem as there were good choices a five minute walk away. We can recommend the food court and the top floor bar at the Tappoo Centre and Gloria Jeans for coffee and cakes and free wifi in the MH Centre.
Couldn't sort out wifi. Was able to send faxes to NZ from the reception office but that was not cheap.
Capricorn was a good base for a night but would also work as a base for longer stays. There were a number of guests who were staying for long terms while working in Suva which meant we had the place pretty much to ourselves during the day. It is not a new facility but has been well cared for and shows signs of recent upgrades to beds furniture and decor. We found it a comfortable and convenient place to stay. Close enough to the centre of town but far enough away to not be disturbed by traffic and people noise. Would be happy to stay there again.
