Stayed for two nights in late April, resort has good on site facilities, shop, restaurant with good food; is a tad expensive (but you are in the middle of nowhere !) Swimming pool with shade sail covering, good grassy areas and a really relaxing place to stay, However the accommodation although clean and tidy was dated and the exterior of...

Stayed one night as part of AAT Kings Kakadu tour from Darwin. Check-in was rushed as it closed early evening as did the shop which set the tone for the out of season feel. Restaurant shut and only eating venue open was noisy bar cum snooker room with conference guests dominating area. Pool was nice but spoiled by people sitting...

Wonderful staff, could not be more helpful. It's also an information center for the area and they will book tours etc. The site is fairly large but well kept. I had a "superior room" which was an upper room. Being wood it became very hot in daytime and the air con could not cope. OK at night though. The room...

It's an old place that is very dated. It could use a major update. We were quite comfortable though & as there is not a lot of choice we made do. The pool was appreciated in the hot weather. The breakfast was good.

We were only offer delivery breakfast at the room at check in, were happy to the arrangement. BUT At the room there is NO TABLE nor a coffee table, ONE small chair, how you expect 2 people to eat their breakfast at the room ??? After complaint, we were offer to have our breakfast at the restaurant, why ???

Accomodation is limited in Kakadu NP. Obviously, this means that hotels do not see the need to do more than the minimum. At least, that is my impression for the Aurora. The room, though basic, is clean and big enough. For a price of about a 100 US$ you might expect more amenities, though. Okay, this is a resort in...

From 1000 feet in the air, over light plane flight, the croc shape of the hotel certainly was different. Rooms a bit dated, but clean and comfortable. Pool was fine. Courtyard fairly dated, with old furniture that had seen better days, but it didn't worry us, it performed its function. The check in area was the most up to date...

Stayed during the wet season and Christmas holidays so expected storms, reduced service and a quieter time etc. Good stuff - Location is good, right inside the national park, loads of wildlife around. The place is well kept, a bit outdated but generally really clean. It's in the wilderness so we expected some rough edges. Room was good, Spacious, nice...

The place should just be called a information centre not a hotel. First the good part, the room was considering good and clean, the aircon was cold. Mostly the bar n restaurant were great , the drinks were cheap and dinner were fabulous. The bar attendant n chef were nice. However, the ceiling was really thin we could hear ppl...

Just spent five nights here right beside the amazing South Alligator River. Rooms and Accom overall is fine and very comfortable. The grounds and area are very well maintained lush and green. Very tropical. As I was up here during the build up, the fantastic pool was very well frequented. A great set up and pool that really helped climatise....
