“No Choice - Budget”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2010

I stayed here for 5 weeks for work.
Pros - if you are here to visit Katherine it is just a short walk down the street to the centre of town. The river is about 10 mins away.
Restaurant was nice, (try the croc!) and the people that work there were really friendly.
Cons - There were ants all through my room.
Shower covered the entire bathroom with water.
TV only got 2 stations - which normally isn't an issue for me but there wasn't too much to fill my time.
Air con was loud and old, and in Katherine they pretty much need to run all the time.
I woke up many times with the occasional gecko in my bed.
It honestly wasn't my choice to stay there, given the limited hotels in the area it was the only place with vacancy. If you are only there for a week I guess you could put up with it, it is only a place to rest your head after all.

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 September 2006

This motel offers standard double rooms for 69$ per night (around 42 € in 2006) which is a rather low price even if not exceptionally low considering that Katherine is a very small and not attracting town. Everything in this motel is very basic, looking not so nice, rather old and particularly never really 100% working. You enter the reception and nobody is there, you have to ring and wait. The room had all the features you may require, but: the bed rug had some holes, the balcony was extremely small, the chairs on the balcony were very dirty, under the entrance door you could slide almost one hand, the furniture was very basic, the bathroom looked very old and was not very clean, the air conditioner seemed from the Second World War, with no remote control, very noisy, very unefficient and constantly dropped water on your head if you tried to exit on the small balcony. The lady at reception was very friendly and tried really her best to make us as confortable as possible, even showed us different rooms. We asked for an hairdrier which she immediately provided, but also this instrument was working very bad with air almost cold. I guess you get the picture.
