We stayed for 8 nights over the New Year period. Steve & Brenda were absolutely fantastic and made our stay just that much more enjoyable. Excellent location - out of the hustle and bustle of downtown Surfers Paradise, but close enough for either a short drive or tram ride (would be an easy short walk too, but our feet were... More

I've stayed at Capricorn One three times now. Brenda and Steve manage the place and have built up a devoted fan base, simply by running the place well and taking care of people. It's not hard, but looking after the people who pay the bills and making sure they have a good holiday is where so many places fall down.... More

Location is perfect for this Hotel. Views and spacious rooms are just a bonus. The Hotel is great for longer stays as well as single night last minute bookings. Can't got wrong with the Facilities they provide and I'm sure it fits in well with anyone's pricing budget although I do not think you would class this as a Budget... More

We've stayed at the 17th floor, room 1702 for 5 nights with 2 children.Enjoyed the amazing views,spa,sauna,easy check in and parking..all smooth. The big disappointment for us though was the state of the apartment with peeled flooring in places,dusty tables and sticky chairs,dusty kitchen bench.Bathrooms were renovated awhile ago,but somehow the old appearance started to show up. It is pity... More

Then, no power for microwave, kettle, or fridge, SO no coffee or toast in morning, warm wine at nite and no receptionist to report this to. Phone call... More

Stayed here on the 19th floor with some friends for the GC 600. Amazing views. We had a 2 bedroom apartment and it had views out from Coolangatta all the way back past Surfers. Good sized balcony and master opens up onto the beach view. Smaller second bedroom with two singles but still good enough. Good sized bathrooms and full... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Capricorn One and will definitely be back. The clean, spacious two bedroom apartment (with TWO toilets) was perfect for our family holiday. Brenda and Steve were extremely welcoming and we instantly felt at home. The kids loved the pool, the large indoor spa and the tennis court. A highlight was watching whales from our... More
