Not the most luxurious place I've stayed but comfortable enough. If you visit Kakadu National Park there's a good chance this will be your hotel unless you up your budget to a stay at the Mercure Crocodile Hotel. The accomodation is fairly basic and in need of an upgrade. On arrival, our room was inaccessible because of a broken lock....

Birds everywhere, beautiful gardens with well established trees and a lovely pool in the middle. Rooms were a bit dark and dated, hot water in the shower was hit and miss initially, good air con, comfy beds. Staff were great, friendly and helpful. Great chefs, the food was very good and the Sunday roast was delicious and very good value...

A good hotel, situated in the Kakadu park, about 2.5 hours from Darwin. The room was clean and tidy, even though of course, being in the middle of the park, some insects may enter the room here and there (in our case there were some cockroaches coming up from shower hole). The dinner is served in the restaurant if you...

Loved camping at the Aurora Kakadu Resort, nice pool, bar, bbq area. Staff a bit not sure about opening and closing times of pub, said it would be open at 4 and never opened on a sunday. I guess management fault as staff are mostly "on working holiday" and not locals. Otherwise great place to relax for a couple of...

3 adults for two nights to visit Kakadu National Park and Armhemland. This is not a fancy cabin! However, it was perfect for sleeping, cold drinks, hot showers and quick breakfasts before starting the day. AC worked great. Sofa bed was good. Restaurant - barrimundi excellent, lamb chops also good. Beers were nice and cold. Again, this is not a...

We arrived and were pleasently surprised by the so friendly greeting, off to our room which was nice and roomy with a view over the lawn area where there were many raucous Correllas flying about. Our visit to the pool was so refreshing and breakfast was good with no staff hurrying you to leave, just beware that if they issue...

Lovely, light, cool, big room. Continental breakfast was fantastic, lots of choice and superb fruit. The service was exceptional- my boyfriend broke the shower on our first night and it was repaired before we got back from our day trip. We were there as a group and has a delicious evening meal in the restaurant.

Very nice hotel inside kakadu national park just in the middle of the wildlife! Pretty rooms with ac. The restaurant served good food and you can have a drink until 10pm. There is a swimming pool and receptionist are all very nice. Just keep in mind there is nothing around you!

Reception staff was very friendly. The guy at the restaurant was very welcoming. This resort is way too expensive for the quality delivered. The room was very dated, not very clean and really needs an update! The walls were also paper-thin and you could hear EVERYTHING :-) that happened in the rooms next to and above ours. But the worst...

We stayed for 4 nights and for what we paid we were expecting something much better. The location is nice but the accommodation needs some maintenance. The plumbing kept up in both the toilet and the bathroom sink creating a terrible odour. The staff were friendly but they were travellers so didn't really follow through with anything. The breakfasts were...
