Our trip to Kakadu National park was a success and Aurora certainly contributed to this. It’s in my personal opinion not really a hotel, but more a motel style accommodation. The rooms are spread out over a lovely green field. It is rather basic but definitely not uncomfortable; everything works and is clean. The guest laundry was squeaky clean. The grounds were well maintained.
Don’t let yourself be fooled by your first impression; it might be a bit of a ‘Ooooh' when you first arrive, but it is absolutely fine. And don’t forget where you are…...
The restaurant was absolutely great. Very good food & wines I must say. I do want to have the recipe of your burger as this was really good. I never ever had a better burger anywhere else in the world. What’s your secret chef?
The service was flawless, accommodating and very friendly. Thank you. Breakfast was all you could wish for.
There is no internet and no telephone connection to the “outer world”.….If you need to be connected (yes, who does not these days unfortunately) there is a computer in the Lobby to use. My only remark would therefore be if it might be possible to get some kind of wireless internet going on. I went to the relatively nearby Bowali Visitors Center to get back online as they provide free wireless with a coffee and a sandwich. Excellent Centre by the way.
Aurora Hotel is not in Jabiru (there is another Aurora in Jabiru but these are lodges), which is regarded as the centre of Kakadu National Park. As the roads are very good it is easy to get around. It only takes 30 min to get to Jabiru. (Not much to see there however but there is a supermarket and a medical centre.)
All in all, a good and enjoyable place to stay!
