This was a great place from which to explore the national park as it's really close. Many of the local attractions, especially the rock pools, get very crowded so its best to get there early which you cant do if you're doing a day trip form Darwin. We went to Buley rock hole at 8.30am which was simply stunning although... More

The place needs seriously updating and cleaning. Our bedding was not clean and had crusty stains on it. When we asked for it to be changed the owner stormed into the room and ripped the sheets off saying they had been changed that day but both my partner and I were shocked at the state of them. The pillows were... More

Wow! You have delivered quite a blow! I am sorry indeed that you felt like that. All linen is freshly laundered for each room arrival. I strongly challenge your suggestion. Mainly for guest convenience, we have a diesel fuel bowser, also one for gasoline. Together they do not make us a service station. We also have a small convenience store... More

Family of 5 for 1 night only. Needed 2 rooms which were "adjoining " by way of external doors but via a private balcony. Robin was friendly and helpful, rooms were large and clean and the bistro and bar were great for kids and adults. Would recommend.

This hotel was tired and in need of updating. Not really a resort. The room was a basic motel, though it was clean. It was also quiet. The bistro food was fine though it was an ordinary setting. The bar staff were pleasant and made up for it. Reception was so, so. Good as a short term base.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights as a base for exploring Litchfield National Park. Our general impression was that the property was simply an average motel rather than a “resort”. While the central lawn and pool area were well tended, other areas were run down. The reception area in particular we found unwelcoming, and the bistro with... More

I stayed here for one night. The room was clean and sufficiently equipped. At reception, both of the people I dealt with seemed mostly disinterested. Food options limited. Bistro looked rather seedy so I ate in the restaurant. Food was OK. Basic value is convenience to Litchfield NP.

We had an overnighter at Batchelor on the way out west after visiting Litchfield National Park. Comfortable, clean and good sites. We took a site with an en-suite and a washing machine. Good to catch up on the washing. Pub next door is good for a quick meal.

Folks, I am so pleased that you enjoyed the caravan park adjoining Batchelor Resort. I am not surprised that you were very satisfied with your ensuit caravan site. The owners of the caravan park, Jim and Julie, I am confident to say, will have looked after you very well. You make comment about the hotel next door, being good for... More

We chose this resort as it was on the way from Kakadu to Darwin via Pine Creek. The rooms were large and well equipped, overlooking the swimming pool. Parking was conveniently just outside the entrance door. There are two restaurants, the bistro had the more extensive menu during our stay but all meals were good. The shop on site had... More

It seems there are kinda two separate sections of Batchelor Resort. One, the first one on Rum Jungle Rd, is the Caravillage..the second, which has the motel, bar bistro and servo. We would recommend the first one. We swung into the second which had the pub for a bevvie .. but ended up at the Rum Jungle Tavern instead. A... More

Please be sure of facts before writing a public statement. Caravillage Caravan Park of which you describe, is not part of Batchelor Resort .

A large older style motel. Large room. Bedding needs an update. Bistro and dining room have simple meals. Quiet motel on edge of town and at start of road in to Litchfield NP. Part of a complex which includes petrol pumps and bottle shop which do not impact on the accommodation area.
