Definitely a great place to stay. Can't fault it in any way. The staff were really helpful and friendly happy to help if they could. We had to ask for a flexible check in as we had a few car problems and the staff were really accomodating. Very clean motel the rooms were large and immaculate, and had basic cooking equipment with a really good size fridege if you are travelling with a family or staying for a few days. highly recommend it, reasonably priced for where it is located.

We have just spent 5 nights at Gove Peninsula Motel. It is a great spot to stay..... an immaculately clean, spacious room with excellent facilities for self catering ( full fridge, microwave, large electric frypan), set in restful gardens with a pool. A BBQ is available on request. Jo and Peter, the owners were at all times friendly and very helpful but totally unobtrusive. This place has a very homely feel, is quiet, and located on the edge of town .... so a car is desirable. An excellent cafe and a bakery are a couple of food options located a few minutes walk from the motel. We loved our stay at Gove Peninsula and highly recommend it as a base from which to explore.

Ended up staying here when another lodging would not accommodate our late night arrival and I can not stress how glad we were to stay at the Peninsula Motel. Jo was so lovely on the phone when I explained our situation and was able sort out a solution for us. The room was very spacious and clean, but the level of hospitality was the most memorable thing about our stay. It was absolutely outstanding! Jo and Peter are exceptionally wonderful people who would help in anyway to ensure we had a great trip. They are great for a chat too! I would highly recommend any travellers to Nhulunbuy stay here!

Really love this little motel. Very clean and spacious. It's also a bonus that the owners are really friendly and always happy to help. No problem is too big for them to help with. Also its really close to the town centre as well but not too close to all the craziness. The palm trees are a plus and makes it feel like a resort. I will definitely be coming back here. There are only two options in town and I definitely prefer the Gove peninsula motel of the two.

There are limited accommodation options in Gove and I have stayed in both major establishments. The rooms here are a good size and clean as a whistle. The materresses have just been replaced and are comfortable. Nice gardens outside and the owners are friendly and helpful. No restaurant though. Have to drive or catch a cab into town which is only 5 minutes away. A minor inconvenience rather than a criticism. Breakfast is available just around the corner (5 minutes walk).

One of two motels in Nhulunby, this proved to be a pleasant surprise. Had spent previous night at the other option and a bit underwhelmed. Gove Pensinsular, very quiet, even though my room next to a main road. No bar or restaurant-meaning nice and quiet, apparently all the circuit judges stay here. Room spacious and comfortable. Lovely salt water pool. Washing facilities. Very friendly and helpful staff. 20 minute walk to the centre of town. Near to bakery and cafe. Down side was it was pricey ( for one person, not if sharing) . Highly recommended if you want comfort and peace and quiet.

We visit North East Arnhem land quite often as we have family in Gapuwiyak. We normally spend a few days in Nhulunbuy catching up with friends and doing some shopping etc. Always stay at the Peninsula Motel. It is spotlessly clean and the rooms are large, beds comfy, there is a full size fridge, microwave and bench with a sink etc. Bathroom is also large. Swimming pool & bbq got a good workout over the weekend we were there. We enjoyed a most relaxing couple of days. The new Manager was so helpful. Thanks, and all the best for your new 'adventure'.

Good sized rooms and excellent shower with really hot water but beds and pillows are uncomfortable. Quiet location out of town but close enough to town to walk in rather than drive. Pool is a good size.
