Capricorn Motel & Conference Centre
Ranked #12 of 35 Hotels in Rockhampton
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 8, 2013 via mobile

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!

Travelling from Sydney to Rockhampton, we researched via trip advisor places to stay, and Capricorn Motel was highly recommended. We arrived after an extremely long drive, and found the Greeting and Welcome by Jodie fantastic. The Rooms are very clean, lovely fresh linen, clean bathrooms with all necessities taken care of. The Continental Breakfast provided was a great start to the day, and provided variety for everyone. After travelling around Rocky all day, we wanted a nice dinner and decided to try the Motel. Wow, Jodie is an excellent cook, I highly recommended the Thai Green Chicken Curry, better than I've had in some Thai Restaurants in Sydney!! We will definitely be back next time we are in Rocky, for more Great Service and Food!! Really Lovely People, they certainly know how to run a Motel.

Room Tip: The Pool View Rooms have a relaxing outlook

After so long on the road my 5yr old was itching to play with some children. He found some nice young lads and they entertained him for most of the day. He really enjoyed his time and this made it easier for us too. The location of this hotel is great if you are travelling north and need somewhere to stop. The best thing is there is little noise from the highway. We had two rooms linked together and that was also great as we had some space. The continental breakfast hit the spot in the morning too.

Thankyou for your review :) . I will be sure to let my boys know you mentioned them. They will feel extremely proud. They enjoyed hanging out with your son also, so it was a win win situation. I hope the rest of your trip goes just as well.

Kind regards

Travelling north to Cairns, this was a stopover, and wanted a place out of the city. A good welcome, the room was clean, had an outside area overlooking the bushland. Block D sounds a bit like a penitentiary, but as good as any other name. Located on the north side of the city, and on the highway, there was a bit of traffic noise in the afternoon, however like most places it goes quiet at night. Being a Sunday, it was not too busy, and wandering around, the pool and grounds are perfect for families with children. The continental breakfast was fine and was all that was needed for the “earlyish” start.

Thanks for giving us a lovely review. We love being out of the city centre and on the out skirts of town. The location especially suits people travelling north as there is no traffic to pass through when heading off the next day. We appreciate you taking the time to write this :)

Kind regards

My young family & I stopped overnight here from Brisbane to Cairns and thought it was lovely to find a place that is neat, tidy and clean. The room was certainly spacious (2 adults, 1 child and 1 baby) and we had no problems falling asleep after a long drive with young ones, even being just off the highway, we didn't hear traffic etc. Breakfast being included was awesome as that was one less thing to pack. Unfortunately we didn't have time the following day to enjoy the pool or anything, but would certainly recommend this motel and found it to be very family-friendly.

Thanks for your review :) it was a shame you didn't get to experience the pool, though at this time of year I think that anybody who enters must be very brave lol. Its a great way to detsress after a long trip.

Have stayed with Jodie and Michael twice now and cannot fault their friendliness or service. A great location, just out of town and yet close enough to everything, feel safe staying here compared to other Rockhampton experiences. They go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need, even offering a shuttle if the booked taxi fails to arrive! The restaurant accommodates late diners, does great steaks and nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are always clean, secure and well serviced, recently renovated and the motel has lovely pool and surrounds. Definitely a great stay and value for money.
