Traveling through from Darwin to Melb, we needed a place for the night so as choice is pretty slim in Katherine we decided to stay at the Paraway Motel . Pluses were secure parking, fairly clean rooms and a good size TV for watching the footy & friend bar staff Negatives were hard beds, lumpy pillows, tiny shower and cockroaches... More

Stayed there overnight with a friend, I had to take 2 rooms for my family of 5 while he just took one room . But I was charged $5 less than my friend, not sure how that worked. Overall the the rooms were clean and comfortable with basic amenities.

I always choose to stay here when on business, but recently was booked in somewhere different which has made me appreciate how this really is the best option in Katherine. The rooms are always clean, generally quiet and - importantly for me - I feel safe there. You can park your vehicle inside locked gates. The staff are pleasant and... 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
