“Friendly, clean and welcoming”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

All staff were enthusiastic and helpful. Arrived late but nothing was a problem for them - recommended an excellent restaurant for dinner and breakfast was satisfactory. Beds were comfy and got a good sleep. Basic but very clean and all that was needed for a short stay. No iron/ironing board in the room would be the only downfall. Would recommend for all visitors to Katherine.

Stayed here for two nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. From the welcome to leaving a lovely experience. The inn is within walking distance of the town centre. The room was well appointed and comfortable. Ideal location to stay if you're going to Mitmiluk National Park. You can pay more but you may not get the same quality.

We stayed in one of the refurbished rooms for three nights - very clean and comfortable, overlooking the pool - the staff were friendly and helpful, happy to provide advice on places to eat and to assist with booking activities. Would definitely recommend this motel and would happily stay again in the future - thank you for a lovely stay.

Reviewed 29 July 2014

I have had the pleasure of residing at the Beagle Inn a dozen or more times in the last year. I always go back for one reason; it's simply the best in Katherine. Judging from comments, some on 'Trip Advisor', some I have overheard on my many visits: The Beagle is not everyone's 'cup of tea',

I suspect that's due to traveler's misconceptions about the standards of accommodation the Northern Territory (NT) has to offer. Put simply, accommodation in the NT is expensive, over priced and of general poor standard. I am pleased to say the Beagle does not belong in this company!

But how do you judge and select accommodation if your new to the NT? I suggest forget all your notions of accommodation in the eastern states. In the NT, lack of competition and big demand means facilities and service can be poor: But, the bookings still come. Forget any notions of 3,4 or 5 star: They simply mean nothing.

The trick is to know what you want. Do you want fine dining? Don't go to the Beagle. Do you want pretentious service and long waits while your selected meal is cooked? Don't go to the Beagle.

However: Do you want lashings of amazing home cooked meals? Do you want attentive friendly service from staff who want to help, but have no aires and graces? Do you want basic but clean rooms and at a reasonable price? Do you like relaxing in a family lounge type environment after a long day? Do you like a dynamic crowd? You never know who you will meet in the bar of the Beagle: Bushies, tradesmans, back packers, grey nomads, hunters and adventurers! If this is the type of stay for you, then the Beagle Inn is your first choice for Katherine!

After all the Beagle Inn is no dog when it comes to service!

Room Tip: if your a mature traveler probably best to book one of the larger slightly more expensive rooms away...

Stayed recently for business and must say my refurbished room has the best bed in Katherine.
Room was spacious, very clean and didn't have those terrible old bedspreads!!!
Bathroom too had been refurbished and was very clean and included nice complimentary bath products. There was austar and a jug of cold water in the room for arrival.
A restaurant on site is open for breakfast and offers a choice of 2 meals for dinner.
