This hotel is in need of a upgrade. The rooms are very dated now. Outer skin of many doors are peeling off. The restaurant meals are very ordinary carpet faded and dirty. This is in the supposed crown jewel of tourism in this country. Staff were helpful and friendly.

The Aurora Kakadu may not be a great place to stay, but it may very well be the best option in the Kakadu Park. The “recently refurbished en-suite deluxe room” with two double-beds very close to the reception area was “ok”. While the décor as such is not much to write home about, the rooms are however pretty spacious and...

Stayed 2 nights in a superior room which was located at the furtherest area from reception on the second floor. The room was clean. pleasant but dated. The dark carpets were grim and made the room gloomy. The bathroom was spacious and had a good bench space. There is a small shop attached to the reception where you could buy...

The location of the hotel was excellent, even has its own billabong you can walk to (watch out for mossies !). Rooms (in small 2 storey blocks) were a decent size and pretty comfortable, though they did look a little dated and the 'patio's on the ground floor were as good as useless. Also found the grounds badly lit when...

Stayed here for three nights on a self-drive tour of the park. Good location - 30-45 minutes driving to most of the park sites that you need to see. Good first impression from the welcoming front desk staff. Dated but comfortable facilities - we had a good size, ground floor unit. The open layout of the accommodation units worked well...

For what you can get in the area, this is decent. The rooms are kept clean, the grounds could use some tending however. There are more centrally located lodges but a hour drive takes you to most sights. There is a spendid walk just behind the property. We saw a wallaby right off, heard dingos after dark and flying foxes...

The hotel is around 25 minutes from Jabiru but is nonetheless a decent place to stay to visit Nourlangie Rock, Ubirr (for the superb sunset) and the Yellow River. My wife and I stayed two nights in a ground level pool view room whilst on a self-drive tour of Kakadu/Catherine. The hotel could do with updating but it was charming...

Motel-style spacious rooms, adequately fitted out and comfortable beds. Noisy air-con. The rooms come in blocks and are laid out among the trees around the OK swimming pool. Breakfast was above average; dinner was quite good. Service charming, all by non-Australians! But the location is great: there is a lovely walk behind the site to a billabong and a short...

This place is set in quite nice grounds with detached 2 storey apartment blocks each with 4 apartments. The accommodation is very tired and dated and it's very much in need of a makeover. The rooms are fairly large with comfy beds and seemed quite clean. The carpets etc are pretty tatty. There is a fridge in the room and...

A bit run down, could be greatly with a bit of effort. Over priced for the quality, but that is Kakadu generally. Could also improve on its environmental friendliness. The staff in the restaurant were run off their feet, they could have done with more people serving and the quality of the wine list was below average.
