    Capricorn One
    Good stay in a comfortable 2 bedroom apartment, nice hot spa but some updating of the property is needed.

    Very good 8.0
    Good room, good views- one side you could see the city and from one side beautiful 180 degrees view of the ocean. Dated bathroom, warm indoor pool not warm, sauna wasn’t working. However for the price no regrets as it was walking distance to shops.

    Good 6.0
    Helpful manager, over rated room vs website photos
    Unit was clearly overrated on website rating, changed hotels as a consequence. Hotel manager was very helpful with our concerns and responded professionally with cancelling the booking.
    Rob, auFamily trip
    Fair 4.0
    We were very disappointed with the condition of the apartment for the price we paid. The vertical blinds were broken and couldn't be shut properly, the lounge was extremely uncomfortable (old, worn out and cheap), the fans didn't work properly and the light didn't work in the second bedroom I sent an email stating all of this to Capricorn One and have not received a reply. It felt like 2 star accommodation for a 5 star price Would not recommend to anyone

    Good 6.0
    Reasonable for budget accomodation
    We had a seven night stay at Capricorn One. Starting with the positives: We had a great ocean view. Free undercover parking (excellent). We all loved the heated spa. Great location minutes from entertainment/pubs and shops. There were a couple of opportunities for Capricorn One to improve. - at time of stay there was construction/repairs being done on the building. This was inconvenient at times with access to pool off limits at times and the bbq area closed for the whole period of our stay. Smell of oil based paint not good. Our appartment didn't have adequate cooling in the living/dining area. Very hot during the day. No curtains in the living room. With the sunrise in the mornings it was at times uncomfortable. Kitchen and bathrooms out dated and deteriorating. Towels - asked about getting towels replaced at about day 4 and was told it would be at extra cost and Towels only replaced after 7 days???? Bit unusual i thought. Overall for budget accomodation id give it a 3 out of 5. And would stay again if they fixed a few of these issues.
