Practical, inexpensive accommodation

We had a big, well equipped room. A few details are in need of renovation, but in terms of price, the room was absolutely fine. We saw in Katherine other rooms that were almost 50% more expensive, but hardly better. Good location in walking distance to the center.

Needs love

Cons- Dirty room, fan was covered in dust and grime, filthy fridge, stuffy, holes in roof, opened milk in fridge, toilet base rocked off the floor, poorly done maintenance work, air con cover hanging off.. Pros-Had a bed, TV and shower. All we ask for budget accommodation is something clean and maintained, it wasn’t.

Expensive for what was (or wasn't) supplied. We had to ask for a doona, and the TV which supposedly in the room was no longer there. Couldn't check in between 12 and 4. General condition very poor.

This motel is a disgrace. It was the cheapest in town, but to have a clean room with clean sheets on the beds shouldn't be too much to ask. The lady running the place could hardly Muster the effort to check us in, let alone deal with the issues of us having a clean room. My tip pay the extra $30/40 to stay anywhere else in town or just head on up the road to Darwin. DON'T STAY HERE....

Angry

Pros: The guy running it was lovely
Cons: Be honest
This Motel advertised free wifi and on that basis I booked and paid for a room online. I arrived and asked for the password and was told I had to pay for wifi - the owner put it in the ad knowing it was false. This is not acceptable and he should be censured at the very least Wotif should stop listing his Motel.
