    The property was a great size and really had lots of extras that were really handy. However, it was really dated which in itself is not so bad but it was really quite dirty. The fridge stank of fish and looked like it hadn't been cleaned in ages. The cupboard fronts in the kitchen were all stained and the cutlery drawer was full of crumbs. All behind the beds were dust bunnies. Not particularly pleasant. However, as it was for my daughters birthday and it was just us two we weren't concerned enough to complain. I wouldn't rebook here as the location is not great - North end of Surfers so still a wee distance from the centre if you don't have a car. We used public transport so not a big deal but if you are going to the Gold Coast either Surfers for the atmosphere or Burleigh Heads for the shelter is my suggestion

    Apartment with potential.
    We are a young family and good to have two bedrooms and a living area. The cleanliness of the place was good, however it felt run down, Windows didn't open well, and the air conditioning was no longer working, so we needed to open the windows for the beautiful breeze that came through every night - I couldn't move the windows so my husband had to each time. There was also no black out curtains only shades, so the early light came through at 5am, hard to keep the kids in bed until a reasonable time. we also had no hot water for the first two days and the toilet rolls were broken as well as the shower screen door. if these small things were fixed it would be a much nicer place to stay.

    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.

    Poor 2.0
    false advertising
    very false advertising as the photos on the internet did not match the quality of the actual stay. Being at the gold coast, expected air conditioning which was told to me over the phone that i would have that luxury. Health and safety was breached as shower heads were falling apart, Kitchen lights were held by tape and a lot of mould was seen throughout the room. Very disappointed as 4 start Hotels should have better standards then this as we paid top dollar.Beddings were horrible, fold out bed mattress was extremely thin. Linen and towels were changed once in a whole of 10 days. We are taking these matters further, if not compensated. Extremely disappointed!!

    Exceptional 10.0
    Comfortable hotel, great location
    Stayed at Capricorn one for 6 nights my family found the hotel to be very comfortable and clean. The location was perfect , not to far from the main night life of surfers but still far enough that it was quiet and peaceful. The view was amazing with the ocean out the front and the river out the back. We all enjoyed the hot spa, and sauna the pool looked clean and inviting but it was not the best weather for us to try it. We would definitely recommend these apartments to anyone. And as I myself work in the accomodation industry I always look for cleanliness and comfort and Capricorn one definitely past the standards.
