Stayed one night on our way to Darwin. Clean and tidy motel with all the usual facilities - including a pool and it has a security gate at night. Good situation in the centre of town handy for local shops, cafes etcc

I was just stopping over in Katherine for the night and this place had everything I needed; a comfortable bed to sleep in, a pool to cool down in and a short walk to the shop and bus stop! I was there for Territory Day and felt very safe staying in this accommodation.

Have stayed because the motel accepts pets in the room. This time round the room smelt of dank used mop water when we arrived. The place is convenient but 2 weeks after we had left and paid our bill by credit card to our amazement here is a $125 credit card charge on our account? Wow apparently we didn't turn... More

We had car trouble so were stranded In Katherine for a bit, this hotel was central to town, easy walking distance to shops, cafes, galleries etc which worked for us without a car! Clean, basic, needs some work, bathroom etc but overall the experience was a good one. Nice people on reception and very helpful. Only downside was the pool... More

A very basic motel with very old fittings. The air conditioner was a bit loud to have on all night so it got a bit warm. Very conveniently located in the centre of town just around the corner from supermarket and across the road from Maccas. No major complaints. It was comfortable and the wifi worked.

This was the worst hotel stay I have ever had. Sheets were so thin that my mother's had holes. My mother had no soap and we had no milk. The security gate wasn't secure and a young man parked in the carpark and rolled his swag out on the bitumen outside my mother's room. The staff didn't seem alarmed. Never... More

right in town this motel was very nice to stay in. The rooms were excellent and comfortable. They were clean as well. There was a lovely pool to swim in and a good restaurant. It was an easy walk to the shops.

We stayed just 1 night, the room was clean, and the bathroom was a good size. The place is very dated. There were not many choices in Katherine. This was reasonably priced considering it's pretty expensive everywhere up here. I would stay again. Close to everything.

The staff are very friendly and helpful. Motel not Hotel. The motel is conveniently located in the middle of town and good place to rest for the night. Rooms are a little bit run down, but their is aircon, and parking and a warm shower. Did the job.
