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

I booked by phone from Melbourne but my handbag with all my details was forgotten.Qantas Freight were very helpful. 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

Word of caution: if you stay here, whatever you do make sure you check out by 10am as you risk being literally chucked out of your room! This happened to my friend and I after oversleeping on a Saturday morning [I was still jetlagged after trip overseas]. A knock on the door at 10.20am by the cleaner, and came in... More

Stayed 3 nights. Place looks run down and is on market for sale currently. Cheap price and clearly budget accommodation. Clean. Bed made up daily. Free wifi. Great sunsets just across the road plus Yacht Club opposite great place for food and drink. Bus to downtown just outside hotel 3 bucks each way and regular service. For what it was,... More

If you just need a bed and don't have high expectations of nice decor then this might do. It's on the bus stop and opposite Fanny Bay /sailing club. The staff were cheerful. Fanny bay allows visitors and has lovely views, cold beer and good inexpensive meals.

Stayed here for a week after traveling from Sydney to Darwin. It is the 5th motel we had stayed at in Darwin as we were trying to find a nice suburb to move into. The room was absolutely terrible to say the least, of all the places in Darwin that we stayed at this was honestly the worst. We stayed... More
