Stayed in the apartment which on the outside look nice, but on the inside, really look old. The toilet and shower are all one. The rooms were clean, but really run down. The breakfast is good, although the coffee is poor. The location is really good which is about 50km from Jabiru. Not too much to do except laze around the swimming pools. They have the Yellow Water cruises, and there is also a visitor center which is really nice. Unless you have a 4x4 there is really not much else around here. If you want a quiet, peaceful holiday then this is a great place. They have a nice restaurant and small bar.
