I regularly travel to Katherine for business and have tried at all the local motels and resorts but this one is the best It's not flash but it's safe, quiet, clean, comfortable and has a nice restaurant.

travelled with a tour and I believe myself and 2 other couples were given the worst rooms as they knew we could not go elsewhere. Black hairs on the sink, cockroaches in the cupboards and fridge! and crawling on you in bed, last persons stuff in the fridge!. Stains on the pillow cases. Able to write our names in the... More

The Paraway has been my favourite choice of Accom in Katherine for years. More so for its location & renowned Stone Grill restaurant. Sadly I found my last meal in the restaurant to be very disappointing and the service lacking. When I lodged my disappointment with the wait staff they were very dismissive. Again on check out I raised this... More

The hotel is very conveniently located in town, next door to the Katherine club and directly across the road from the Katherine River. Bed was very comfy, secure parking, but not in front of your room. The hotel also has a nice pool area and restaurant.

Stayed here as part of a tour group. Room overlooked the pool - very few were swimming so no noise issue from that quarter. No noise eother from the main drag as this place is off it at more-or-less the end of the shopping strip. The room was big enough but not huge. Slept OK. Food was obviously cooked especially... More

Large rooms with double beds. Clean, modern bathrooms with shower only. Coin operated washers and dryers. Helpful front desk and bar staff. Modest buffet but fesh food put out as needed. Ask for a poolside/garden room.

On travelling from Darwin and arriving rather late this was the first motel that my wife and I noticed. The receptionist was very pleasant when approached and being tired we accepted the room offerred. The room was average for a 3star but certainly not 4 star. That is where the good report stops, the restaurant was only serving "Stone grill"... More

Being walking distance from all shops, pubs and eating holes, Paraway Motel is a decent option if you're looking to stay in the town area of Katherine. Rooms are basic but tidy, and the general grounds, including the pool and garden areas, are well kept. Temporary workers and bus loads of tour groups are common clients here, but there is... More
