We stayed at the Beagle as part of our visit to the NT in August 2013. We really enjoyed the homestyle cooking and very friendly, down-to-earth, welcoming hospitality of the owners. A fantastic base for exploring the area, if we are in the region again, we are definitely staying again.

We booked into the Beagle Motor Inn for 2 nights after reading other Tripadvisor comments. It was great! Our room was spotless with some lovely decor accents. The shower was nice and big and wonderful pressure! Joanne, the manager, is delightful! So helpful and accommodating. She encouraged us to do the Katherine Gorge Dinner cruise, which was absolutely fabulous. Definitely can recommend staying there.

This place just got it right. Providing clean, safe, modern accommodation at an affordable price. It is the best Motor Inn I have ever stayed in. The customer service was impeccable and the free breakfast included was more than satisfactory. They offered hot and cold options for breakfast. We were really happy with the room and overall experience. Don't stay anywhere else when passing through Katherine.

We selected The Beagle Motor Inn for our stayin Katherine based on the reviews we read and we were not disappointed.
The Beagle is a typical country town motel- nothing fancy. Rooms are quite basic but clean and quite up to date (complete renovation after the 2007 floods according to the owners).
The air con worked well and was quiet so we slept well. The bed was comfy (we paid the extra $20 and got a king room) and the bathroom, although small, was functional and spotless.
The pool area, again, was basic, but the shade sail over the pool not only kept us out of the sun but kept the water temperature at a cool and refreshing level.
The guest laundry was clean and everything worked well.
Breakfast was more than adequate with cereal and toast on the buffet and a cooked breakfast included in the cost of the room.
As so many others have noted, the highlight of this motel which makes it stand out from it's similar counterparts across the country was the helpfulness and friendliness of the staff. From the moment we arrived when we were shown to our room (not just handed the key) to our departure two days later, nothing was too much trouble and help was always at hand if needed.
This Motel was a bright light in Katherine.

Room Tip: Book a king room.

My wife and I stayed for a couple of nights in September - Friendly people, clean rooms (although small - particularly the bathroom), great breakfast. Meals in the restaurant are basic but good. This is an ideal place to stay for couples or families not wanting to blow the budget and looking for a nice friendly, unpretentious and homely spot

The only down side to staying here is that we could only spend one night. We were hoping to call again this week but due to ill health I am going to fly home from Darwin.
Joanne and her team could not do enough for us. The best customer service we have had on our 4 week business trip. The rooms may be a little dated, but the friendly staff and cleanliness definitely made up for it. The beds were comfy, rooms were spacious (we were in F4) and every guest gets a full English breakfast including cereal, fruit, juice, toast, muffins etc. The cost of a family room was $140 so when you consider this includes breakfast it is a bargain.
I will recommend this accommodation through our media outlets, thank you once again Joanne you have really turned this motel around and should be very proud of what you have achieved.

Room Tip: The family rooms are very spacious.

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.
