“A GREAT WELCOME”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

We chose this motel in Katherine because of the ratings and comments on TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed in any way. It is an old motel which has been revamped and as such was very popular while we were there, being booked out every night. Reception area is a simple affair and is also the entry to the restaurant. It is the service that management provides which is outstanding. The manager escorted us to our room and ran through how the television and air conditioning worked and ensured we had no questions before leaving us to our room. This was a first for us in Australia. Yes the room was small but it had been recently redecorated and was very clean with all the usual facilities. Great bed with really good pillows. The bathroom was very small but definitely not a problem. As we were there for three days, it was great that there was washing facilities and a clothes line provided, if you didn't want to use a dryer. Breakfast was included in the room price, which was unexpected and dinner at night was good. Nothing was too much trouble for the managers. Would love to see the example of excellent service that the managers set used as a role model at other similar motels. It is what has lifted this motel from Very Good to Excellent. Thank you for our 3 days there.

Stayed one night in this lovely motel. Rooms, though small, had massive big bed, everything was clean, and breakfast was great. I very much doubt I will be in Katherine ever again, but if I was, have no problem staying here.

Stayed for 3 nights in Sept. with another couple as a weekend break
Very clean and tidy with super service and very reasonable cost.
Food was good and plentiful although choice was limited (steak or lasagne one particular night) although the type of people the owners are i am sure if you have special dietary needs they would accommodate. They seem to do everything else.
Good location to Katherine Gorge, etc.
Would definitely stay again if in the area.
2 small details to remember.
1) dont sleep past 8 in the morn or miss the very good cooked breakfast.
2) they give you body wash for the shower (a good one my wife says) and not soap, so if your a soap person (like me) - bring your own

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent.

Dear SAB61,

Thank you so much for taking the time to review our motel. It is wonderful to hear your comments and we actively try to take all reviews on-board so that we can continually improve the property and make things better for our guests.
Our "Home-style Cooking" restaurant offers our guests a quick, wholesome alternative to dining out and we try to offer a variety of dishes but we will also try to offer more vegetarian dishes.
It is wonderful to hear that our service was good as we really try to do that little bit extra for all of our guests.
Thank you for staying with us and we wish you well on your future travels.

Regards,
Joanne and Sam

We stayed at the Beagle Motel in Katherine for 3 nights whilst exploring Katherine Gorge and surrounds. We'd read the excellent reviews and were not disappointed when we got there. The room we were allocated was large and around the back of the motel, passed the laundry. The room was extremely clean and both the dinner and breakfasts were excellent. I'd definitely stay there again and would recommend the Beagle motel to anyone who wants reasonably priced, clean and honest accommodation with excellent hosts.

I chose this motel based on the reviews on Tripadvisor and I was very pleased I did.
First of all what really makes a difference is the nice and friendly owner: she is very welcoming and made us feel at home.
The room is quite large and has everything you need, also very clean.
The motel is also very quiet and peaceful and provides for a good night sleep.
We walked to the shops in Katherine and you could also walk to a few restaurants.
The owner was also very helpful in suggesting a restaurant for our evening meal.
We had breakfast at the motel and it was plenty and tasty.
I strongly suggest this motel for Katherine.

We have stayed at The Beagle many times now, and this stay will not be the last. You can not fault the rooms, they are spotless, fresh with everything you need. The service is outstanding, and always so friendly.

The food for breakfast and dinner was also very good, and would be one of the better places to eat in Katherine.

We travel a lot, and some times you come across a hotel that you know you will use again and again. And won't even bother checking out the others. We think we have found a good thing at the Beagle.

If you want some where comfortable to stay, that is great value for money, you can not go past The Beagle

I would recommend the Beagle. I stayed 3 nights and both Joanne and Sam run a clean, comfortable, safe motel with good home cooking. Just remember, this is a motel not a hotel and sits in outback Australia, don't expect the Shangri-La and you will enjoy your stay here. It is 4 blocks from the main road (5mins walk).
