In urgent need of upgrade. Dirty grout in bathroom very shabby room. The restaurant only offered a buffet dinner. I was expecting much better. Way overpriced for standard of room, very disappointing. I wouldn't stay there again unless major renovations occur

Accommodation needs updating.

We stayed two nights in mid August and the accommodation was full. Despite this level of patronage, the rooms are very old and dated and need to be refurbished. The staff were friendly, helpful despite being overworked.

To Mercure Hotel General Manager Unfortunately, our only negative experience from a very enjoyable 10-day holiday in NT was at your Mecure Kakadu Crocodile Hotel Jabiru. Let me explain: Whilst we fully understand rooms are not serviced daily because of staff shortages and the recent economy restraints, it is expected COVID protocols with reference to clean and sanitised bathrooms be paramount. After check in, we were in the room briefly to drop off luggage before heading out for the afternoon and evening, arriving back close to 10pm. This was when we discovered that the toilet had not been cleaned properly, you can only imagine how we felt. Faeces was splattered all over the upper part of the toilet bowl and underneath the toilet seat. In hindsight we should have called up management and insisted on a room change but because of the late hour and knowing staff difficulties, decided to wait until the morning, expecting that once we reported it that it would be a priority and done while we were out. On our return at 1:30 the toilet still had not been cleaned, we complained again and were assured we were next in line. 2:45 another complaint. Finally, at 3pm we were able to use our own toilet and shower, 24hours after check in. This is totally UNACCEPTABLE!!! As you well know the world is just getting comfortable to travel again. Health and well being paramount in plans. Good reviews are a must for businesses to prosper. Sadly, we don’t have a positive review for Mecure Kakadu and feel we are owed some sort of re-imbursement or compensation. The word “sorry” was not enough. On a positive note, we purchased some beautiful indigenous artwork from your amazing gallery and Kakadu is sensational. Paul & Phyllis E. Mobile 04… Email: pe…

Old tired and dirty. For a world class location it’s embarrassing to have a hotel in this state

Dining was like a big USA style barn - noisy and no atmosphere. The hotel exterior and room was dirty and in need of a good clean and paint. We were incredibly disappointed - the same cost gets you a 5 star room in Broome or capital city
