“Friendly Staff with spacious clean rooms”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

Thanks for another great stay at your hotel. It's a breath of fresh air in Rocky. Clean, spacious, garden setting that you can park right outside. Owners and staff are really friendly. Also includes a basic breakfast which is ideal for early departures.

My partner and I were in Rockhampton for a wedding. We chose to stay at the Capricorn Motel after reading the positive reviews on trip advisor. The rooms were spacious, bathrooms clean and modern and the beds were super comfortable. Our room had a lovely garden view with the pool insight. We would recommend this motel for other travellers.

This motel is set in large grounds and the rooms are lovely.
Check in by Jodie was smooth and very friendly
We only stayed the one night and had dinner their on that night.
My husband was not happy with his meal but Michael assured us Jodie would be looking into that on the morning we left. 5 prawns in the meal about half a cup of rice and a few Asian vegies in a watery tasteless sauce!!! $30.00 not value for money we didn't think. My meal was very nice and was indeed value for money.
We both had the exact same meal again while away on our trip at another restaurant further up the coast it was only $23.00 and had 12 large prawns in each meal much nicer flavour and on the whole a better meal than here at the Capricorn Motel and Conference Centre.

Hello,

Thankyou for your positive and negative comments. I appreciate your overall honesty. I am sincerely sorry in regards to your Thai Red curry prawns. Being one of our most popular dishes I am surprised and disturbed how wrong your dish sounded. I take extreme pride in the meals that we serve here and care about how our guests enjoy them. So please if you are ever this way again, please come and stay and I will personally make one for you myself at no cost.

Take care

Jodie

Nice room - the lady on front desk was very helpful, pointing us in the right direction for dinner.
Breakfast was supplied which was plentiful. Be aware that SatNav takes you to the wrong place! Overall a satisfactory stay.

Our family of 4 stayed here overnight while travelling north. We had an interconnecting family room that ticked all our boxes. It was spotlessly clean and pleasantly decorated. The room faced in towards a pool area and whilst there is a little traffic noise the highway didn't feel right on top of you. It is a perfect position especially if heading north. We even got a real coffee before heading off the next day.

We stayed in a Special needs unit where the needs of the disabled guest were fully catered to, with rails precisely when they were needed and space at a premium. The room was immaculate, the service without fault - & surprisingly for a highway motel the siting of buildings minimized traffic noise. The busy surroundings are idyllic, the bed so comfortable we've returned home to purchase one! The Bistro also catered to room service and was excellent and well presented. And to top it off they make the best cappuccinos in Central Queensland. We will be returning in the future & highly recommend Capricorn Motel & Conference Centre to others. Well done Jodie & Michael, & thank you.

An unplanned stop in Rockhampton during a East coast road trip saw my wife and I drop in for a nights accommodation.

Booked our room while driving between Mackay and Rockhampton with little notice. Hotel owner happily matched a last minute price from an online booking agent and provided us with directions to find them. Pretty easy, first place you come by!

We were exhausted and place to shower and sleep was all we were after. Arriving late, we were greeting by a lovely lady who checked my wife in and directed us to our room.

Rooms were huge and adequately appointed. Nice and large bathroom and comfortable bed and all very clean, which was a nice surprise after a few not so nice motel stays on our East coast trip.

A little bit out of town, so if you are planning a bit of sight seeing around Rocky, or a meal on the town, you will need to drive around 10 minutes to get into the heart of town. But a perfect spot when driving through. Who wants to drive further than required!
