From outside the hotel looks a bit out-dated. However, staff is very friendly, rooms are clean and linnen are excellent. There is a pool and a small but good bar/restaurant. The Aurora is certainly much more charming than the Crocodiles Hotel in Kakadu. Would stay again.

This was a tidy, clean hotel. Staff were friendly. Food for dinner was great. The only disappointment was its a long way to Coinda and Jabiru. We found this out when we had to get up at 5am to get to the sunrise yellow water tour. It made for a long day.

When looking for where to stay and to get to see Kakadu National park, I reserved the place, due to distances from sites there were just few choices of where to stay, Jabiru had 1 hotel and this one (out of 2 options with ensuite bathroom decent on the internet one looked good. The place is ruined down need a...

We had the park to ourselves, nice lush green grass, underfoot. Great caravan park, plenty of room for large vans, and an ideal starting point to Kakadu, the park is close to the Mamukala wetland viewing bird hide which is a short drive over the South Alligator River. Do not confuse this Aurora Resort in South Alligator with Aurora Kakadu...

We stayed at Aurora for two nights with a group. We had a quadshare room, and it was a very spacious room. The bathroom was big as well, with a little ante-chamber. That was especially good as we were four girls. There is a nice pool in the center of the accomodation, which was very refreshing after a hot day...

Our visit of one night at Aurora after a long day touring was quite pleasant. The reception staff were friendly and inormed us about where our roomwas located, plus meal times. The room was basic and a reflection of the age of tihs establishment. The main thing was that it was clean and tidy, with tea and coffee making facility....

This is a great place to stay for visits to the Jumping Croc Tour, Nourlangie Rock, Ubirr, and the Yellow River. We stayed two nights in a ground level room off the pool. The building is old and in need of updating. The room is the bare minimum-bed, desk, couple of chairs- but was clean. There was no television reception...

At 1st sight, the location is pretty in a kind of park but once you step in, you notice that eveything is a bit old and outdated. The location is good if you visit Kakadu. The bedroom is very dark but big bathroom, powerfull hair dryer, big mirror, large flat tv screen ( not in front of the bed tough...

Aurora Resort Kakadu has a range of accommodation which by all accounts has varying levels of quality. We stayed QB part period staying in a Deluxe Room. Accommodation whilst tidy was not inspiring. Dirty out door settings not enough chairs inside for all 3 to sit down. The facilities were in need of a make over tennis court advertised but...

Beautiful location, very much Australian bush and aesthetically it is a lovely resort. But the beds were insanely hard, pillows very flat and only a flimsy sheet. So for our romantic trip to Kakadu, we did not have a very restful or relaxing 2 nights!
