We stayed at this hotel from the 10th to the 13th of april with our three boys (12, 9 and 6). We had a large room with a double bed, a bunk bed and a single bed, which was perfect for us. It is a simple hotel but clean and spacious. The food at the restaurant and at the supermarket... More

The hotel is in need of a makeover it is dated now and maintaince is required in many areas. Doors are peeling the wooden structure of most building need attention. Most of the complex needs painting inside and out. Carpets in dining room are warn and strained.

Aurora Kakadu is about 45km before jabiru. There is another Aurora Kakadu located within Jabiru, so don't get the two confused. A great location to stay on the way to Kakadu, especially if you want to visit the Mamukala wetlands for the prolific birdlife there. Providing great open spaces and large rooms, a great pool and spa which is centrally... More

Stayed at Aurora Kakadu In December 2013. The staff were very welcoming. The room was very spacious. The outside and pool was kept very clean. Free parking outside the building. I really can't find any fault in this hotel. I would come back. The hotel has their own petrol station, convenience store, tour desk, restaurant and bar.

The room could sleep 3 - came with a double bed and a single bed, a TV, bar fridge (two bottles of complimentary water given), closet, small table with two... More

Based purely on room standards and facilities, I couldn't give this place any more than 3 stars. I've given it four stars because even though the accomodation is pretty basic - the rooms are clean and tidy, the facilities are reasonable and the staff are helpful and friendly. We stayed here one night as part of a tour package and... More

We stayed here for three nights. As we drove through the grounds the buildings did not look attractive, so we were pleasantly surprised on entering our room. The buffet meals in the restaurant were excellent, We walked the trails leading from the grounds to the billabong etc. It was an easy drive to Ubirr with amazing Aboriginal rock art and... More

It was a beautiful place with friendly staff. Food at dinner was good quality. Felt it was a little expensive needed to eat a lot of food to get your value. Other wize pricing for room and drinks where good.
