Not too bad

Staffs were friendly and helpful. Room was clean and well organised. Unfortunately, I couldn't sleep as early as planned due to noises from upstair. I was explained later that these buildings are old as are the floors. It could make noticable noises at night when people walking on. If you plan to stay here ask for first floor not the grounds.

Kakadu Hotel

Decent sized room with en suite and fridge, parking just outside room. Hotel is a bit isolated (although kind of expected as it's in a very large national park) but could have done with a better stocked shop. Staff were friendly but service wasn't as good as you would normally get in a hotel for this price. Good range of choice for (fairly expensive) breakfast but some of the 'hot' choices weren't hot, and some of the dishes needed another wash. Overall not great, but OK, considering the lack of other options in the area.

Nice stay in the middle of NP

The Aurora Kakadu is located in the National Park (NP). We had a room with 3 beds, the room itself was modestly decorated, but it was clean and spacious. The whole resort is very calm, you can enjoy nature at its best. There is a small store just next to the reception, where you can buy some food (open until 8 pm). The price for the room is reasonable. However, it is a pity that there is no complimentary free Wi-Fi, because the communication is not possible if you use mobile provider, that doesn't have a signal in the NP (you have to drive to the Jabiru, which is approximately 40 km away)..

Very Enjoyable staay

Very enjoyable experience. Staff were extremely friendly. The lady at reception offered to wait for us to check in after closing time when we rang to inform her we were running late (we went to the wrong Aurora in Jabiru, make sure you stop in South Aligator). The resort was well equiped (decor a little dated but well maintained), everything was clean and the food enjoyable. Good value for money and well located for access to attractions,

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Its a 25 min drive to Jabiru. I googled Aurora Kakadu and it brought me to another resort 1.5Km from Jabiru a frequent mistake apparently.

An experience

Very clean and comfortable. Towles changed and fresh. Food at buffet was a bit sloppy maybe should have ordered from the a la carte menu as it looked nicer.

The resort is set out well. Nice

The resort is set out well. Nice surronds and pool (although lots of biting midgies there- well it is the outback!). Beautiful correllas gather in the pool area of an afternoon. Rooms were fairly average especially for the price paid but we expected as much from anywhere in Kakadu itself. We found the dining options a bit limited. Our first night Tuesday the restaurant only offered a buffet at $35/pp or you could eat at the bar with limited options (four types of pizza or nachos, wedges or chips). Our second night the restaurant was closed, there were more options at the bar but limited seating so other patrons had to wait. For a major resort in the area we thought there should have been more dining choice for guests as you are unable to drive around to other restaurants in Kakadu.

Very happy overall, we stayed

Very happy overall, we stayed there on a last minute deal so we got the room at 45% off the normal rate. If I had to pay the normal rate I would say that it would have been very over priced. Very happy with the resturant food, our evening meal was excellent.
