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.
- Great RestaurantMixture of reviews read prior to booking suggested the hotel was changing under the Accor brand. Slight issue with our first room and broken AC unit -… attended to very quickly, and front desk staff were very helpful and helped us move to another room. Room was of the quality I have seen across the Accor chain - yes this hotel has challenges with humidity, but find a hotel in the tropics that doesn't. Restaurant manager has done an outstanding job with both the food and service in the restaurant - we are in here both nights and thoroughly enjoyed our meals and found them to be reasonable priced. Pool facilities are good, albeit could benefit with some investment to bring them back to their former standard.
- Basic, But Probably the Best OptionThe room was clean, although somewhat tired. The AC worked, sometimes and more or less effectively. The property was understaffed, but those working were… pleasant enough. Restaurant food was seriously sub-par. If you are visiting the park, there are few alternatives. In a city venue, I would have given it a "2".
- Enjoyable stay overall.Stayed for 3 nights recently. Great staff, friendly and helpful, very good quality food in restaurant. Only downside is whole place is dated and rooms… need complete uplift and good clean. But with no competition in the area Mercure obviously don't feel they need to spend the money. Can't believe they have only one pool area. Ok for us as the hotel was quiet but in peak season it must get crowded.
