We did not stay there!!

Pros: Nothing
Arrived to find out one had to share toilet facilities. My wife is 77 years old and a type one diabetic, who needs to visit the toilet regularly during the night. We booked at Barramundi Lodge not knowing that. The manager was not helpful at all ....just said we would lose our money, which we did!! I have sent several emails to Wotif and had no replies. Not impressed at all. Regards, Russ Hughes

Good short stay budget option for family

Pros: The pool was highlight.
Cons: unsure
Location: We went to CBD and Mindil markets and Museum of Northern Territory. We used buses and maxi/ taxis $15-30 to get around.
We are a family of 5 ( 2 adults ,kids 3,6&7 yo) who stayed for 1 night before flight home. We fitted neatly in family room 1 dbl and 1 dbl bunk. Room had kitchenette and TV . Shared bathroom was fine. Kids spent hours in the pool / BBQ area. The manager was excellent, welcoming and helpful.

Great Wifi

Pros: Great Wifi
Cons: Bigger room for families but this is an impossible request :)
We stayed a night in the Family room. Great kitchen families in the room. The room was cramped, with 5 beds and a large dinning table. The Wifi AMAZING!!! the best of anywhere we stayed. Shared bathrooms not idea. A mix of long and short stay people in hotel block was a little creepy, but every one was polite and pleasant.

an oasis in town

Pros: friendly staff, great location, great place.
Location: lots of things. all Katherine activities are available one way or another.
very friendly, lovely place.( a bit like an oasis in the desert) it is a little bit off beat with a camp kitchen and a kitchen in side the big house. chooks running around. the villas are comfortable with the eating area on the veranda, ac sleeping room with on-suit. you don't think that your in/near the middle of town. very relaxing stay.
