You pretty much get you pay for - this place is one of the cheapest options in Katherine, but the rooms are dated and could do with some love. We didn't mind our stay too much because our expectations weren't high, but we had a few problems - ants were infiltrating the bathroom, loose mattress feathers poked us in the... More

Stayed on our way to kunanurra. Owner was very helpful and trusting. Room was old but did the job. Had tea on site. Fine. Staff were really good. Bar on site but not noisey. Fenced parking. Across the road from McDonald's. Second time on way back a bit of trouble in room next door but owner acted well and called... More

After travelling to Katherine many times on business. I have visit almost every single accommodation there is to be found. I find Katherine motel one of my favorites among them all. It's a amazing staff, clean rooms which is rare to find and a tremendous restaurant and affordable. I'll recommend this to families as well. Since the facilities in the... More

In touring the upper zone of the NT in May 2015, this "motel" was the most miserable of motels....towels that dogs may have bulked at, poorly maintained and not reasonable value. Shame on the Danish owner.

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
