I’m trying to be balanced to give a fair review to the property and to other travellers. We paid $200AUD a night for a lodge room which means a room with a bed, fridge, table and two chairs, tea and coffee facilities and you use the shared bathrooms for the campsite. Yes it was Kakadu and high season, but $200 a night VERY expensive. Across NT at this time, there are staff shortages everywhere meaning you have to be patient as limited hours for certain services and those working are often dealing with queues. As a campground, pool/bar facilities were pretty good. Linen was clean, bed was soft so backs aches after two nights so we left and moved on losing the third night cost but needed a good night sleep!

We stayed in a small and simple cabin which was cosy for 5 but fitted our needs. Fantastic pool and grounds with great bbq for dinner. An easy base to see Kakadu.

The cabin had everything we needed to return from epic adventures and relax and have a meal. Whilst the rooms were not big, storage space was provided to ease the congestion. We cooked in our cabin most nights. However, the meals at the bistro had a lovely outlook over the swimming pool and although they did not constitute gourmet cuisine, at least they had vegetarian options. Judy, Neil, and other staff, were very friendly and helpful. Coming from Adelaide where recycling is big, we were pleasantly surprised to find bins specifically to enable recycling - the only place in the Territory where we stayed, that made such provision.
