Ross M's review (11 April 2016) is spot on. A great place to stay. We booked in and when I asked whether reception could arrange for a heat pad to be reheated, I was offered a microwave which was promptly delivered to our unit.. Would definitely recommend again as I did in my prior review in July 2015.

Have stayed here a few years ago and found it quite presentable so as we wanted accommodation close to the University decided to book again. Check-in was interesting, gave our name to the Receptionist who looked at the computer, got up and walked away as a man approached from behind the desk, she said our name to him and he... More

Located out of the city centre it is a 15-20 min walk from Central Queensland University. The motel is a little dated but rooms are comfy enough, well appointed and clean. Suggest going elsewhere for breakfast but you can order bread for toast; cereals provided.

Stayed here for a conference - location is out of town/CBD; but has enough there to keep you happy. The owners were very friendly and helpful - willing to give advice on places to visit/things to do in Rocky! Only downside was the noise from the highway - mainly trucks slowing down for lights.

Stayed here 2 nights on my travels to Brisbane (1 night) and on the return (1 night). Accomodation is very clean and tidy with everything one needs. Owners are excellent and look after any requirements. For an commendable family operated motel and conference centre I would have no hesitation is recommending the facilities available here. The reasons for my excellent... More

Fantastic resort style pool, quality spacious clean rooms with everything you could possibly need for a one night stop over or a longer relaxing stay. Rooms are set amongst manicured tropical style gardens, well away from any road noise. Excellent restaurant serving quality, well-priced meals. Friendly staff and management who can't do enough to make guests feel at home .

This place is a nice little haven in Rocky and pretty close to everything. Great pool, nice quiet rooms (lights are off at night so you can get a good nights sleep) and a great option of amazing food at the restraurant. Family run and a good place to relax and enjoy your stay. Best place to stay for sure... More

Am in Rocky more often than I'd like on business and have stayed at a number of places but by far the best is the Capricorn motel and conference centre. Rooms are bright airy and clean. All facilities are top class. Room service food is amazing just wish Jodie would put the lamb rack back on the menu. Grab a... More

We found this Motel very nicely set up, with good services and helpful staff. The room we were in opened onto a courtyard, which made a pleasant atmosphere. (I think most of the rooms have an outside view.) Everything was clean and well maintained. We ate at the bar for a couple of meals while there, and were really impressed... More

The lovely lady (owner and receptionist ) tells me they can't get five star rating due to block matarial in the walls. Sounds a bit ridiculous to me as every thing else is five star. The courtyard area is beautiful lots of greenery and a great looking swimming pool. I was shown thru the conference centre which is made up... More
