Quirky and dated. Could do with a neaten up. Cobwebs and spiders in bedrooms and bathrooms. Cleanliness not great.

I didn't stay there! Upon my arrival ~5pm the place was closed with a note on the gate that it will re-open the next day. Obviously I couldn't seat there overnight so I found alternative accommodation. I complained about that with request of the refund to your contact email - it was ignored so far... Very bad service!!!

O.K. If you have kids who love animals

Pros: Nothing much
Cons: Level of facilities and overall maintenance of rooms and surrounds
Location: Batchelor is an excellent base for exploring Litchfield National Park
Facilities very basic with a small noisy refrigerator in the room that kept us awake at night. The butterflies, fish and rabbits provide a diversion if you have kids, but did not justify paying a premium relative to other accommodation we have experienced in the Northern Territory.

Family friendly getaway

We stayed overnight so we could have two full days in Litchfield Park and we were not disappointed. Chris and Angel made us feel like part of the family and went out of their way to make sure that my kids had a great time; helping to feed the animals etc.

Out of the Box

Pros: Friendly, child focused, easy quite.
Cons: Not a fan of the tiger bedspread but honestly, if that is my gripe have I forgotten how much fun the kids had and as a result how relaxing it was?
Location: Great location to get to Litchflied.
Forget all your past experiences, this one is new and unique. Embrace the fantasy of a lush oasis in the middle of a very dry and baron outback Australian village. Chris the owner is a character. Although my daughter did not quite know where to place him she loved it: bunnies to cuddle, butterflies to land on your nose, goats to feed and turkey and piglets - a childs dream. The relaxed and friendly nature of the staff leaves everyone feeling quite relaxed and happy to take a moment into a world that is .... as I said, unique. My kids are 11, 8, 6: and all three loved it.

A Very Different Experience

Pros: The whole deal
Cons: Our bed could be a bit newer
Location: Plenty to do in Litchfield National Park - swimming holes, nature walks, great for motorcycle riders. Rum Jungle Tavern is good for lunch
Animal and nature lovers will enjoy their stay at the Butterfly Farm, which also houses rabbits, ducks, geese, chooks, pigs and goats that you can feed with provided carrots etc. It is an eclectic little piece of heaven that Chris has built up over 21 years. He is a very passionate man and this comes out in his special little hideaway. The accommodation is basic but pleasant and each room has a theme. Meals too are basic but portions are generous and well-prepared and the service comes from the heart. I love the large deck area around the quirky reception/bar/restaurant with large, irregular-shaped mahogany tables that Chris has built himself from the raw materials. This is not a 5-star snooty hotel - it is a down-to-earth no frills welcoming place for people who want quiet relaxation and the chance to meet many winged and furry friends. Great for kids!
