I stayed her in two rooms for two nights with my 87 year old mother, my brother and sister in law. Firstly, Kakadu is expensive. Everywhere. But you need to keep in mind that Kakadu is isolated. The costs and quality reflect this. Camping was not an option for us so we had to book hotel accommodation. We stayed two nights here and one night in another place closer to the Yellow Water billabong. The standard of accommodation is at best a low 3 stars. It feels a bit like an American holiday camp with groups of two-story wood buildings, each holding several hotel-type rooms. It is reasonably comfortable but a bit shabby. There were a few annoyances. Our air conditioner sounded like a 747 airplane and could not be adjusted. Our screen door was difficult to slide open or shut. The aerator in our bathroom sink flew out of the tap the first time I turned the tap on. The TV was old and temperamental. Our room cost of $205 per room included a substantial and tasty buffet breakfast. We also had the dinner buffet at an extra cost of $30 per person which was equally tasty. The staff in the dining room were delightful. The highlight though is the antics of the corellas that visit en masse a couple of times a day for play-time in the trees. My family spent one afternoon just watching these lovely, but very destructive, birds. And after watching their antics it became obvious how difficult it would be to maintain this property as they chewed absolutely everything. Of the two places we stayed in Kakadu, Aurora Kakadu was to my mind better value, quite simply because of the free entertainment provided by the corellas and the pleasant restaurant staff.
