The staff here are lovely and were happy to help us with our every need. The rooms are also quite large, which makes things more comfortable. The downside is that depending on where you are located, you may not sleep very well due to the constant noise. The stairs outside our room were super loud with people banging up and down them in the early hours if the morning, and drunk people talking loudly. We were in room 2 which was bad; if you get a choice ask for a room on the top floor away from stairs.

Ideal location close to town centre and Katherine

Pros: See above
Cons: Restaurant and Bar closed for New Years- but it was understandable- Hospitality workers deserve a break too!
Bron runs a great motel and is wonderful to boot. We enjoyed New Years' Eve by the pool and had a grand old time. We would definitely stay here again.

We were out for the day, returned to a clean room.

Pros: Very close to the town centre and good security for vehicles.
Cons: Nothing.
Location: Location: close to RSL Club, for a great inexpensive meal. Walking distance for shopping, Coffee Club, Service Station. Quiet.
It was dreamt to have a room with tea/coffee facilities plus a TOASTER. Need to have complimentary butter, plus vegemite and marmalade jam.
