Where do i start..... As part of our regular travelling job, my partner and I were sent on a 6 week stint to the NT. We needed to stay 2 and a half weeks and at last notice at the end of dry season, accommodation was rare, and even rarer in our travel allowance range! Whilst there were other places... More

My husband, son and their friend stopped here for 1 night of 7 in April 2014. Its the worst place they have ever been too. Absolute filth. The beds were old and well used as were the towels. One of the beds was broken. My son went in the shower with his socks on in case he caught anything as... More

Stagnant Urine in toilet as they entered bathroom and body fats and fluids in shower and basin. One part used toilet roll for 3 of them.... More

This place is a gem. I stayed two nights. The 2nd night my son arrived and management offered to move me from a double to twin room (with queen bed). No fuss. Large rooms for the price, great showers. Great restaurant across the road at the sailing club...yes you can wear a singlet.

I spend a week in the Capricornia how is run by a lovely family. Just a few minutes by walk to the beach , it's also easy to reach the CBD. The room are simple, nice and clean. It's also a good place to meet both, local and travelers. The weather was very hot and they have a nice swimming... More

This is a great basic hotel - located conveniently near a lot of Darwin attarctions and a short taxi trip to CBD and Mitchell St. Friendly local staff will help you out and tell you how to get there. Rooms are basic but clean. Also close to the Casino - you can have a pleasant walk there and if you... More

Because i had no ID on me i had to verify my phone number to qantas who accepted my verification. Arriving at the Capricornia, my first impression about the motel is that it looks run down and is people unfriendly. i... More

The Capricornia Motel is a small budget hotel over the road from the water front. The rooms are clean and functional. It is over the road from the water front where there are some great walks. Within walking distance of the Ski Club, Museum and Casino. The Ski Club is close enough to walk for good budget meals and on... More
