I chose this over Jabiru for the location, since the two trips we wanted to do - Yellow Water and Jim Jim/Twin Falls - depart from nearby. But my heart sank on arrival. The reception staff seemed to be going through the motions, our rooms were not ready for almost half an hour, although we arrived at 15:30 and oh, they were ugly. Painted breezeblock with corrugated iron roofs. But that aside, they were clean and comfortable with excellent aircon. There are two attractive pools and good food at the Barra bar (the grilled barramundi was excellent). This place isn't great value for money, but given the limited options, I would choose it again.
