What stands out about the hotel, above its excellent location and value, is it's people and their customer service. From making sure we entered successfully after hours through to immediately popping up to the room to check on an issue - the staff made the weekend. We came to partake in a weekend of events and the location was perfect... More

It's an older building and found shower leaking in ensuite, TV in lounge room didn't work (small) and airier broken, blinds in main room not working and found all the blind through out cheap and hard to use. Kitchen kickboard kept falling off and oven tray dirty and very little in kitchen to cook with. Needs restocking of kitchen equipment.... More

The 2 bedroom unit is excellent for family or long stays as it has kitchen facilities and comfortable lounge/ dinning room and the lakeside rooms have the most amazing views. Perhaps a little shabby but great value for money and in a prime location and so central. You can sit on the balcony although there is a bit of traffic... More

The suite we had was really in need of, if not a total renovation, attention to the many light fittings that were either broken or loose, mildew in the bathroom and carpet stains and general wear and tear. Having said that the location and free parking are a bonus.

The reason I like coming back is the convenient situation of Capital Towers. It is right on the lake, and great for early morning walks. It is also very convenient for access to the Civic precinct - a 10 - 15 minute walk - and close to the University. It is right in the trendy New Acton precinct, with an... More

Previous reviewer described it as 'shabby' - that is spot on! Sorry to start with negatives ... The place needs a makeover. So many things inside did not work: the balcony door wouldn't close all the way and it couldn't be locked, the shower handle was broken, the lamp in the bedroom was broken, I found someone's sport socks in...

We really enjoyed our stay here. There is a full kitchen you can use in case you have got fed up with eating out all the time on holiday. The only thing missing was salt and pepper! There are two bedrooms, so room for a small family or two couples. The beds are comfortable, and there is enough storage space... More

The front reception staff were nice, however the room (302) was ordinary at best. On entry, the apartment smelt stale and looked dated. The fittings were worn and in need of some TLC. For example, the material on the curtains was that worn that you could still see the light come through even when they were fully drawn. The air... More
