Mercure Kakadu Crocodile Hotel
From the marble foyer to the uniquely shaped exterior, Kakadu Crocodile Hotel is a cool retreat in the midst of Kakadu National Park’s wilderness. Just 2 ½ hours’ drive from Darwin, Kakadu Crocodile Hotel is the only full service hotel for Kakadu accommodation and is the ideal base to explore the Ubirr, Nourlangie and Jim Jim areas of Kakadu.
- Luxury get awayWe stayed recently at the Mercure Croc Hotel. We were disappointed with the room even though we were upgraded because we needed a downstairs room because… of older partner. The room was close to the pool a bonus. But people smoking close by in the bar area wafted in our room. The bathroom even had a chain pull to flush! The grouting was dirty and there was cigarette burns on the shelf. No wine glasses in room and cheap tea bags offered too. The pool area was sad and the pool was very small. I'd hate to see when more kids were around. The staff were friendly. The buffet style restaurant was very cold and needs up lifting and refurbishment. We stayed 2 nights and one night at an other place for half the price and we felt it was better by far. Called the Kakadu Lodge, the pool and area was fantastic. Even had a bar and bistro with happy hour. I'd stay there next time.
- Hotel OK - Staff great!Kakadu, lets face it not a lot of choice and Mercure is probably as good as it gets...bit of a tour hotel - i.e. restaurant big barn of place...certainly… couldnt use the word intimate...but ok food and service...pool not fab, but adequate...rooms OK, but what was exceptional was one member of staff - Michael on the front desk...i stupidly left my jacket (and passport!) in the hotel room on check out...he tracked me down, entrusted both items with a tour operator coach-driver and had the jacket and passort dropped off at the hotel we were now in (Novotel, Darwin) to well done Accor and well done Michael!!
- Kakadu National ParkHotel is in the middle of National Park and it is pricey. Rooms are clean evethough it is little bit outdated. Food is expensive in the restaurant. … SO, if you are planning to drive from Darwin and stay at this hotel, get food items from Darwin grocery store - you will save a bunch,
