The motel is obviously run on a 'keep the costs down' basis. The bistro, where one would always find locals dining, is closed. You can ordera meal at the bar from a much cut down menu. The bathroom had not been properly cleaned, e.g. all the shower fittings had not been cleaned in an age. No coat hangers, my cup... More

We stayed at the Katherine Motel as part of our drive from Darwin to Brisbane. The property offers secure private parking, a great pool and bbq area, central location and well sized basic rooms. Bed was very comfortable with extra pillows and blankets, free toiletries, WiFi and foxtel and easy check in. The owners have a super cute little dog... More

I have in fact stayed here before, but this time was definitely better. For a starter there has been a gate placed inside bringing a better sense of security. They also offered free wifi which was convenient. It offers a fantastic pub meal. Also amazingly friendly staff as always.

The Katherine Motel is in a very convenient location right in the centre of town. It is a bit dated and the rooms reminded me of many a motel I had stayed in when I first came to Australia in the late 1980's, today the main difference seems to be the bare brick walls are now painted. The fixtures were... More

I stayed at Katherine Motel for two nights and it has been proven to be the perfect place for a break at the Katherine Gorge, only 29 km to the Gorge. The rooms are well maintained and clean. The friendly management and the good home made food at the restaurant made my stay a pleasant one. The Katherine Motel is... More

Me and my girlfriend recently stayed at Katherine Motel and had a great time. The motel is very clean and the staff just about as friendly as they come. The motel is actually pretty big with parking spots in front of all the rooms. Speaking of the room everything was excellent. Clean bathroom with a tub and plenty of space... More

The Motel had airconditioning, which was noisy and didn't work too well. Being close to roads, it was really noisy, all night long. Would suggest staying away from the centre of town! Value for money, it wasn't.!! The staff were really friendly, but the motel was rundown. Parking was really weird, could do with one park per unit and numbered.

Accommodation is expensive in Katherine.. So don't expect much for your $. We stayed one night here. It was average, clean, super nice staff and felt safe at the hotel. Next to Woolworth's and the centre of town. Easy to find, bed was a bit hard.

We stayed 2 nights and wished we didn’t stay 1. Although the Motel is central Katherine is not that big so further out isn’t a problem unless you don’t have transport. The Motel was noisy. It is an old motel and so the walls and bathroom are reflective of this. The air con was noisy and parts were falling off... More
