We knew Batchelor was small, but didn’t realize how small until we got there. The options for lodging were limited, so we stayed at the Batchelor Resort. Checkin had a very small town feel, with no credit card required and very friendly service. The rooms are on two levels around a central swimming pool. Our room, on the ground level,... More

Thanks for a well balanced review. Sorry about the spiders, they have been dispatched. Gecko lizards are extremely common in the tropics. They are also referred to as house lizards by some. Territorians accommodate them as part of the lifestyle. Gecko's high pitched bark during the evenings is a very common sound in most homes in the tropics. All walls... More

No big complaints. Rooms were ok, huge terrace that we shared with friends staying in the room next door. Beds moved, which made me spill a glass of water. Ok swimming pool. Grocery store with very limited selection on the premises, as well as bottle shop (better selection than grocery store).

You must be an interesting spectacle to observe drinking a glass of water! The beds move due to supporting legs being equipped with wheels or glides, a feature not unique to our beds. It allows for ease of cleaning floor beneath. Since many properties have beds which move, some care should be taken with your glass of water, or, may... More

This is a dated motor hotel, not in any way a resort as the name would imply. It was comfortable enough, had a nice pool. But very overpriced for accommodation quality. The motel has evidently had no money spent on it for a good many years. It's like entering a 1980's time warp. Good proximity to Litchfield. Options for accommodation... More

I am pleased you found your stay with us to be comfortable and that you appreciated the pool. If there was a problem with the meal,you should have raised the matter at the time, only then could something be done to assist. Instead, you said nothing. The comfort you experienced was entirely due to substantial money being spent on the... More

After spending the day in Litchfield National Park it was a nice place to come to. Clean and tidy and well presented. The laundry unfortunately was not working. Although the book in the room stated you would have orange juice and snacks on inquiring why we didn't I was informed that it was only for the upstairs rooms and they... More

Thanks for your comments. I am happy you enjoyed both Litchfield National Park and your stay with us. Yes, I had some major unexpected repairs in the guest laundry. It took some days to get it all back to working order, but we are there now. Sorry for that inconvenience. This year we introduced the lower tariff "standard" room for... More

We stayed 2 nights and found the staff helpful and the dining room staff especially nice. I agree with the last reviewer that the towels,blankets and bedding were stained and in one case (pool towel) mouldy. They were however clean but just well passed use by date. The rooms were large and cool with air con,fans,toaster,tea towels and balcony with... More

Thanks for your comments. Recent reviews discuss towels & linen. New towels were placed in rooms at beginning of 2014 season. A high degree of vandalism this year has resulted in new towels, due to misuse, being removed from service. I suspect our bathroom towels have been used by some guests for outdoor activity in remote locations such as Litchfield... More

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

Thanks for your comments. I agree, it does enable a good early visit into Litchfield National Park. Yes our accommodation is clean and well equipped. our staff enjoy their work and I guess that shows in a pleasant attitude. I am sorry you did not enjoy the restaurant 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
