The hotel offered enough space to move and feel relaxed with plenty of storage for our gear. The rooms were clean and the equipment provided was in good working order. We all had a...

We had a lovely return to the Gold Coast and a very welcomed stay at Capricorn one. Very clean, safe and close to the action but far enough along the road to be away from the noise! Two great pools and just a short road crossing to get to the beach.

Place is good for Family of 4. Secure and reception is quite friendly. I am the extra guest and told us we dont need since the place is good for 3 adults but happy we informed them. There's a allocated parking lot if you bring your car. Place is close the central district of surfers paradise. About 15 -20 mins....

We wanted to stay for one week at Gold Coast and decided to try a self contained Apartment that was offered on Booking.com. I contacted the management team before our departure as our arrival was late at night and we were not sure whether any reception staff would be there. We also found out that the so called and advertised...

It was our first GC holiday and with a lot of reviews we've read about GC specially during leavers week. But we were treated with a very tidy apartment with breath taking views. Location was great and Brenda and Steve we very friendly to say the least. These added to a very memorable holiday. Definitely going back and staying here...

We couldn't be happier with our stay at Capricorn One. Being across from the patrolled beach was great but we didn't need to leave with an indoor and outdoor pool, 2 BBQ areas, one with a peaceful view of the canal and the other in the well maintained garden. Our modernised apartment (which had air con but was not needed...
