I have had the pleasure of residing at the Beagle Inn a dozen or more times in the last year. I always go back for one reason; it's simply the best in Katherine. Judging from comments, some on 'Trip Advisor', some I have overheard on my many visits: The Beagle is not everyone's 'cup of tea',
I suspect that's due to traveler's misconceptions about the standards of accommodation the Northern Territory (NT) has to offer. Put simply, accommodation in the NT is expensive, over priced and of general poor standard. I am pleased to say the Beagle does not belong in this company!
But how do you judge and select accommodation if your new to the NT? I suggest forget all your notions of accommodation in the eastern states. In the NT, lack of competition and big demand means facilities and service can be poor: But, the bookings still come. Forget any notions of 3,4 or 5 star: They simply mean nothing.
The trick is to know what you want. Do you want fine dining? Don't go to the Beagle. Do you want pretentious service and long waits while your selected meal is cooked? Don't go to the Beagle.
However: Do you want lashings of amazing home cooked meals? Do you want attentive friendly service from staff who want to help, but have no aires and graces? Do you want basic but clean rooms and at a reasonable price? Do you like relaxing in a family lounge type environment after a long day? Do you like a dynamic crowd? You never know who you will meet in the bar of the Beagle: Bushies, tradesmans, back packers, grey nomads, hunters and adventurers! If this is the type of stay for you, then the Beagle Inn is your first choice for Katherine!
After all the Beagle Inn is no dog when it comes to service!
