If you´re travelling to Kakadu, Gagadju Crocodile lodge is a great place to stay if you´re after comfort and a decent hotel. We received a warm and friendly welcome from Shankar on the front desk and he remained helpful throughout our stay. We had a somewhat erratic aircon and he swiftly sent a repairman and then moved us to another room looking out over the pool. The rooms are a bit tired but well looked after and comfortable. The pool area is very pleasant and a swim there after a long day quite refreshing.
We had dinner at the restaurant on both nights as the only other place open when we visited Jabiru was Aurora lodge. The Gagadju´s restaurant is overpriced and not all that good. I think my sisters Pasta Primavera would have to be the sorriest bunch of looking vegetables and rewarmed penne I have ever seen - topped with some grated supermarket cheese. We found that the more expensive the item on the menu the better. Dessert was ok and the buffet breakfast was not bad..
I would definitely stay here again as it is central to all the attractions in Kakadu.
