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.
- The best option in the National ParkGood location, about 250 km drive from Darwin. The town hasn't got much to offer. Good beds, basic bathroom. The restaurant is very good for dinner, rather… basic for breakfast. Be prepared to face possible power outages. It adds up to the charm of the place.
- Good place to stay at KakaduEither visitors want to say, Jabiru (where is the hotel, inside of Kakadu NP area) looks like of deserted small town, or on the other side is the gate… to enter the ancient time when Aborigin people stay here in their old ways of life long time ago, this place is a good place as the base to explore the outback of NT. The hotel is unique, a combination of nice room with clean and comfy beds, clean bathroom and toilet, with outdoor large swimming pool, good restaurant (no restaurant open at evening in Jabiru) and from the high the the hotel is resemble the shape of crocodile. The bonuses : at night the unusual a bit scary sounds on nocturnal animals / birds pretty loud around the hotels and the Aboriginal Art Gallery exhibition at the hotel's corridors and reception area. Nice experience to stay here.
