Well it was for us.. We had an entertaining stay here in our Caravan. Starting with my Husband being attacked by a Goose which was very amusing. Good amenities, we were first into the camping area so got a great spot. Good meal at the Inn with cold beer. We had an interesting night, met some characters and it's ended...

We have stayed here a number of times whilst travelling from Darwin to Brisbane as it is well located after a full days drive from Darwin. We have always been given a comfortable bed although types of rooms have varied. It also has camping and caravan facilities. The food has always been good and plenty of beverage options. We were...

Did an overnight stopover at a powered site. Most of the sites were puddles of mud. Picked one against the rear wall of the units that wasn't underwater. Prickles underfoot everywhere we stepped. Had to negotiate through puddles to the amenities block, which was dated, and barely acceptable. My wife went for a shower to find that the stall had...

Hi Greg Thank your for your recent feedback on our caravan park. Travelling in the NT during a wet season can be a challenge and we have just had a week of heavy rain from the cyclone which in turn makes the caravan park very wet with puddles. The prickles unfortunately grow at a rapid rate during this time of...

Have been going there every couple of months for a few years, a week at a time. The new chef Michael has recently started there and his meals were the best I have had there, tasty, beautifully presented and ample portions. He has also reintroduced tasty specials board. Enjoyed all meals this trip

Spent one night on a shady unpowered grassed site for $24. We were told we had to pitch right next to the road as the area of grass in the middle of the site was "unsafe" - no idea why! Traffic in the night didn't keep us awake though. We used the pool which was nice and cold but pretty...

This place was barely adequate. Downside was that the cook over cooked the schnitzels, no wifi because the manager wasn't there and the ground outside the chalets became easily flooded after rain. However, the chalet was clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. I have given this motel 3 stars because they honoured my booking although I would be...
