Room was clean. Outdoor plastic seats were filthy. Patio and surrounds were very untidy with leaf litter and bird droppings. Dinner and breakfast were good. Overall, expensive for what you get.

As other visitors have stated this place seriously needs renovating. Old, shabby and not overly clean! With the exception of a couple of staff members, we found the staff very indifferent, to say the least! in fact, the reception staff bordered on being arrogant and this is all when a couple is paying over $160.00 per night to stay there. Also, the location of this place is a 100 kms from Finally, the air conditioner was so old, so very loud it was like trying to sleep in a factory!!!

This establishment is tired and in need of a refurbish. The staff were excellent, helpful and went out of the way to make our stay enjoyable. The evening meal in the bar was very good and good value for money. The breakfast, while being good I felt was over priced. The location is to far from Jabiru.

A nice place to stay although it was a bit far from everything, although you could say it was very central to everything - excellent staff.
