We have just spent 8 nights at Capricorn One and found these apartments to be really great. From the excellent location which is close to Surfers Paradise without the late night noise and just a stones throw to the beach, this suited our family of 2 adults & 2 kids to a tee. The managers were outstanding, the apartment (1701)... More

Our first trip to Gold Coast (couple with 2 younger kids) and we couldn't have chosen a better apartment. Steve and Brenda were very helpful and warmth host. They are very patient and would answer all my questions prior to the trip and during our stay. We stayed #22. Had the best seaview and river view! Couldn't be any better.... More

Steve and Brenda are the welcoming hosts here, who have spent the past seven years ensuring that Capricorn One remains my favourite Gold Coast accommodation. I first stayed here in 2007, where I fell in love with the incredible views of beach, ocean, river, mountains and the skyscrapers of the Gold Coast. Seven years later, it is every bit as... More

We recently stay on the Gold Coast for 6 nights and stayed at Capricorn One. What a fantastic place to stay. Was well above all our expectations for accommodation at this price. It definitely made our stay much more enjoyable. We hope to stay here again next time we come. Thank you for your hospitality

My family of 5 spent 8 days in Surfers, and we were all very happy with the accommodation. We were joined halfway through our stay by 3 of our extended family, and Brenda and Steve were able to juggle things so that we were all on the same floor. Clean, tidy, secure. Loved the location, not too close to Main... More

The service was amazing, the room was amazing, the views were amazing, the location was amazing. Bonus was our room also had air con too :) Everything was amazing. Only downside was the spa is colder than what you expect a spa to be. Sometimes kids splashing you could be annoying, but we knew it was a popular family place... More

Please note we had access to the 12th floor and making a comparison. Our apartment was clean but the furniture was outdated. We had... More

My boyfriend and I decided to come to Surfers as a holiday after exams. We found Capricorn One to be a great place to stay, as it was close to the beach, close to the tram and a lovely, clean room to come back to at the end of the day. The spa was was awesome and we went in... More
