Thinking for the price we paid for a family tent it could possibly have been a more pleasant stay with built in amenities

Great stay and central to a lot of sites. The sunset cruise on Yellow waters was fantastic. Damien just needs to keep eye on the time as we almost missed the sunset... the hole reason we go on a sunset cruise. BIG Crocodiles. Accomodation was clean, suitable for our stay and the restaurant was serving lovely food. Bugs were horrendous 😱. Lucky were local.👌

The signage for the rooms was excellent. Shame the rooms didn’t have Foxtel.

Really enjoyed our stay, perfect position for when you want to go on yellow river cruise. Nicely appointed spacious rooms, a bit dated. Two really nice pool areas, good to have a choice of a child free one. As with all places in Kakadu it is quite expensive for what you get.
