4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

No problems with Kakadu Lodge at all, it was extremely clean and tidy and the kitchen was well equipped. We were able to do our laundry here which was great. Staff were polite and friendly. It had everything we needed. We did not eat a meal here however so unable to comment on the menu.

Thank you for choosing to stay at Kakadu Lodge we value all feedback. It was great to read you had a pleasant stay during your time in Kakadu. Our staff were especially pleased to hear that you consider them to be polite and freindly, it really does assist in keeping their spirits high at this time of the year when the temperature can make working conditions a challenge.
We look forward to seeing you again at Kakadu Lodge or one of our other Aurora properties.

The staff were very friendly and helpful, the studio room was comfortable (and nice and cool!!) and the swimming pool and bar were awesome. It was above what we expected from a caravan park. We had no problems during our short stay, and highly recommend the lodge as a base for a Kakadu adventure!

The studio cabin was excellent and sound proofed so sleeping wasn't a problem. The lagoon-style pool and spa are simply relaxing and was perfect for my husband to relax after each day of his golf competition. My son was impreesed with the beautiful rock/water feature at the end of the pool and the lush gardens. The bistro was very inviting. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. We'll definately be staying there again.

It was a great place to stay; The staff were very friendly and willing to help, the food was lovely, accommodation cabins were clean and well kept.

My only small complaint was that the aircon in Cabin 23 took so long to cool the room down. We ended up having the the bedroom and living area aircon on to help it cool down. It took 3 - 4 hours for it start working.

Besides this we had a great time and will be looking to book there again in the future - Thank you :)

Thank you for choosing to stay at Kakadu Lodge. It was pleasing to read that you enjoyed your stay with us. Our housekeeping staff were pleased to read your comments about the cleanliness of your accommodation. I apologise for your airconditioner complaint. It is company policy to have airconditioners turned on for rooms arriving as we appreciate that most people visiting are climate challenged at this time of the year in our region where it is extremely hot, unfortunately your room was missed, which is extremely rare. We trust that your friends also enjoyed their stay with us.
We look forward to seeing you again at Kakadu Lodge or one of our other Aurora properties.

We stayed in a studio cabin and it was perfect for our needs. The staff were friendly and helpful, meals were restaurant class and the lagoon-style swimming pool was welcome at the start of the Wet season. As residents of the Top End, we'll definitely be back.

Room Tip: We stayed in the cabins which are near the entrance. Little traffic meant that it was extremely quie...

Thank you for choosing to stay at Kakadu Lodge. We value all feedback. Our staff are particulrly pleased to receive your positive comments. It is great to see NT residents exploring their back yard during the build up when the bird life is exceptional and the attractions of Kakadu are not too busy as the tourist season draws to a close.

We are a family of five and we stayed in a two bedroom cabin. We were all comfy in the cabin and were not left wanting for anything else. Jabiru is central to most of the attractions of Kakadu and looking at the other accomodation I think we stayed in the best spot. The kids loved the pool area as did I. We ate one night at the bistro/ restaurant. The food was good though a little pricey as was the beer. Everything in Kakadu costs more though. We got our Coronas and most of our food in Darwin before heading out. The other nights we cooked our own in our cabin which had all of the appliances we needed. We would highly recommend this resort.

Thank you for your review on our property. It was pleasing to read that you consider us to be the best accommodation option in Kakadu. We are glad you enjoyed your dining experience with us. We endeavour to keep our prices as reasonable as possible, but it is a difficult excersize because of freight costs associated with our location as well as our policy of not purchasing ready to go food. Our chefs take pride in being able to supply fresh, Australian produce rather than processed imported options.
We are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us and look forward to seeing you again at Kakadu Lodge or one of our other Aurora properties.
