Capricornia Motel

Traveller (17)
Room & Suite (11)
We are a family run budget motel in a fantastic location surrounded by many local amenities. Opposite the beach and close to the Museum we are also walking distance to all Darwin's most popular seaside clubs, Ski Club, Sailing Club and Trailer Boat Club. We are walking distance to the world famous Minsk Beach Markets held every Thursday during our beautiful dry season and also the local Saturday morning Parap Markets, flowing with fresh Asian food and produce. Our rooms as basic, always affordable, and cleaned daily. We have always had a regular clientele that have become like family over the many years and we always have room for more.

I had reservations about this motel prior to arriving, due to the numbers of adverse reviews regarding it. My fears were realised when we finally arrived on Christmas Day 2016: - The outside appearance of the property was very run-down and in need of immediate maintenance - The
