This place is absolutely great. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly. They couldn't do enough to help. The bed was really comfortable and room spotlessly clean. I loved the fact that I could do my own laundry in the machines and hang out there for only a few dollars. Also

I stay all over the world , normally in 5 star hotels. I was stunned at the quality of the rooms, service, food and ambience of this resort own by an indigenous corporation.

Reception check-in worthy of any 5 star. Ditto for the quality of the food and the spa package provided

We were uncertain of our arrival time and were provided with clear instructions as to how to check-in after the reception closed at 8pm.
As it turned out, we arrived well ahead of that time and checked in at reception. Very friendly welcome with the good news that we had been upg

we need accomodation for 2 nights but then leave for one night but upon return we need a room for a couple of hours only as we have a 1am flight. can you accommodate? or do we need to pay a full nights accomdation we would need it from 6pm to maybe 11pmish?
We land very early in the morning at 2 am from Denmark. Is it possible to check in early, and in the affirmative, are there any additonal charges on the room?
Iam unsure regarding early check in

we have booked a room for teh V8s, hop ewe get a new room as some comments say the older ones are not that great, we always put reports of teh places we visit and stay on TripAdvisor so I hope this will be a good report, I lived in Darwin before the Cyclone, then it was just a small country town with a big Greek population, can't wait to see the change.
Faith W's comment is NOT accurate - you do need to specify new cabin if you want one of these. Whilst the older motel rooms are OK they're pretty grim by comparison.

Hello, on one of the Tripadvisor reviews it mentions guest use of Kitchen area . I can not see mention of this on your website, please can you confirm. It would be useful to be able to cook ourselve one day as we are staying with you a few days. Many thanks Ann
Hello Ann, I can happily confirm that we do have a guest kitchen that has everything you'll need. We are also fortunate that we are situated next to a Shell Express fuel station and across the road here is a Friendly Grocer, so you will not need to travel far for ingredients to cook. If you have any other questions you would like to ask, please feel free to give us a call on 08 8984 3400, we are happy to help. Best Regards, Bonney Kathleen The Leprechaun Resort
