“Quite location with clean rooms and a fresh breakkie”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2013

We arrived just after Christmas during low season, and made to feel very welcome. The room was very clean with a good sized fridge and bench space. The air conditioning was fantastic, and there was definitely adequate space for all our belongings. The bed was comfortable and we were able to relax after long drive and hike.

The service at The Beagle were incredible efficient and we were provided with handy hints about where to eat and what to see that time of the year. The breakfast provided was fresh, delicious and filling, and I suspect we were provided extra fruit given my partner is vegetarian.

Definitely my top pick to stay in Katherine. The location is very close to all the local supermarkets, and like most accommodation in town is about a 30km drive away from the Gorge and the start of all the hikes.

I stayed at the Beagle Motor Inn from November 27th, 2012 to December 21st, 2012 as no rental accommodation was available in Katherine. Having neither been to Katherine nor the Northern Territory before and certainly never having experienced anything similar to such high humidity and temperature levels, I can't commend Jo, Sam and their staff highly enough for making me feel welcome. My room was impeccably bright and cleaned daily, there was always a friendly comment and smile from staff, split level airconditioning worked well despite being utilised 24 / 7 and no request was considered hard. Thank you very, very much. Regards, Derek (of Mildura).

Leaving is what not to like.

From the moment we arrived after dark we were made to feel right at hone. Nothing was too much to help. These holidays have so far stayed at three other motels on way up from Sydney and the owners gave the impression of not wanting any customers but not here.

The rooms are clean but basic. Which is fine for us as only in room to sleep. The rooms are very clean, bathroom is great size and modern.

Being off the main road by about 700m there is no traffic noise.

Rate includes breakfast which was not expected and made a good room rate even better value.

Breakfast is outstanding. Bacon and eggs with two pieces of toast. Also fruit platter.

We will be back again.

Having stayed in every spot in Katherine we were very pleased to find The Beagle refurbished, spotlessly clean and very quiet. The couple running it are very friendly. Individually cooked breakfast and the evening meal was good home cooked fare at a very reasonable price. New comfortable beds and modern split system air conditioning puts them in a different class from their competition.

What's not to love about this place: owners who are real people, breakfast included (little bit extra if you want cooked breakfast), a pool, coin laundry facility, clean and fresh rooms, airconditioned, foxtel/austar cable tv, wireless internet and just an overall good vibe about the place.

We initially booked for one night so we could access Katherine Gorge, but then ended up coming back for another night to start our journey into Kakadu.

Both the rooms we had were lovely. The also include tea and coffee making facilities and a bar (small) fridge. What we liked is that this motel is slightly off the main drag so you don't get road noise from passing traffic, but close enough to be able to walk into the main strip if you choose.

It was a magical experience when the rains came and broke the heat. I heard a frog in the down-pipe. A nice little added bonus.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 9 (faces neighbouring property) and 22 (internal facing driveway) both lovely. It...

We only spent one night at the Beagle but we were spoilt as soon as we walked in the door! Jo gave us an upgrade to a superior room which was large, clean and totally comfortable with huge en-suite and a queen sized bed - brekky next morning was cooked by Jo very promptly and we wished we could have stayed and sampled the dinner menu.......unfortunately we had to leave but we will remember the Beagle with affection and wish Jo and her family great success with this project, thanks for the experience.

We travelled a lot in Australia. The Beagle had by far the best service. We felt very valued as guests. The breakfast was individually cooked, the rooms were very clean and the location is very close to Katherine's attractions. The Beagle Motor Inn is great value for money and definitely the place to stay. Ww were very glad to stay here.
