Booked 2 rooms. One room was good but the second room had an awful smell. It was a stale cigarette smell and the room had been sprayed to try and cover up the smell but it was not successful.

A bit disappointed with the facilities as the hot water in the shower didn't last longer than three minutes. The breakfast was white bread toast with jam or honey and boxes of cereal, not really worth paying for. Over priced for what it was.

Missing booking / room smelly

On line booking could not be found so they had to upgrade me. Thank god they did cos the budget room must be apalling compared to my upgrade. There was a disgusting smell in the room and carpet was filthy (stains) . No microwave even though I was in a more expensive room ... NO MILK FOR COFFEE!!!! Not happy but the bed was comfortable and I slept well

We took the basic option and that is what you get. No WIFI No hair dryer and the TV remote didn't work nor did the replacement. A basic fix would be to put screens on the windows and a screen door. Guests could have fresh air less the mozzies and not rely on the aircon. These minor issues aside it was OK for the price.

When booking with Wotif when you arrive you are told that you have the budget accommodation, oops makes you a little wary about what to expect. Don't worry it is all OK you do not walk into a nightmare rooms are very adequate, after all you just need a clean room, shower and bed which it has. Room was very clean and just what was needed, however one down side is the information in the amenities needs updating. Iron and ironing board in cupboard - no, hairdryer in bathroom - no, place to leave keys at reception for early departures - no. None of these are a biggie just some feedback for them.

Pros: ... close to everything. Pity the lights stay on in the carpark at night. So hard to sleep.
Cons: Carport lights stay on all night. Light comes around curtain and very hard to sleep.
Location: L

Best accomodation in town.

Our company sent a team of three to Capella for work, they were very happy with the quality of the accomodation.
