As i was browsing the internet i came across the Katherine Motel, I looked at the reviews and was intrigued by the many good reviews but also a bit worried because of the bad. When i arrived i was greeted by staff... More

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

Great location - in the middle of the city with easy access to Katherine National Park (30 mins drive), Katherine Hot Spring (10 mins drive), Katherine Visitor Center (walkable). There's also a 24 hour macs just across the street so no fear of going hungry. Just around the block, they have woolsworth supermarket and a mini target. It's super convenient.... More

Easy walk to shops and supermarket. Rooms are average but cleaned every day by a delightful lady who is extremely helpful. Good place to stay if you're on a budget. Restaurant prices seemed a little pricey but we didn't eat there so can't comment.

This motel is really very average compared to others we experienced on a recent trip to the Northern Territory Top End. It was located in the town centre but as the town doesn't have much to recommend it anyway, suggest it would be better to stay a little out of the action as it was in a very noisy location.

We're so sorry to hear that there were aspects of your stay here that didn't please you. Unfortunately it is one of the downsides to having such a central location that it can sometimes be noisy in the surrounding streets, especially on a weekend. We do try our best to accommodate people in the quieter areas of the motel wherever... More
