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.

I stayed for a couple of nights in a 'superior' room. Room was clean, and bed was very comfortable. Very convenient being centrally located. Excellent service, and friendly staff. Next time I'm in Katherine I will be staying here again.

Well located, in centre Katherine, we arrived on a Friday evening after a long drive and in the need of a good night sleep. Couldn't have been worse. Near the pub with extremely loud music, which lasted way too long, after normal hours 2-3am... didn't sleep at all. Then people chatting outside for the rest of the night as if... More

We're sorry that your stay with us wasn't more pleasant. Unfortunately it is one of the downsides to having such a central location that it can sometimes be noisy in the surrounding streets, especially over the weekend.

We stayed for just one night in August 2013 before going to The Katherine Gorge. It was clean and had everything one needed for a one night stay. The beds were comfortable. The Motel is definitely stuck in the 70's with the decor, but it served a good purpose for us and was close to everything in Katherine. No complaints

The 'superior' room I booked was reasonably basic but comfortable and everything worked. The air conditioner was noisy but that was just as well because it drowned out the noise of the locals squabbling with each other in the adjacent Woolworths carpark. The room service meal was delivered with a smile and was a good portion size.
