Nice but not exceptional

We had stayed the previous night in a cabin in the campground behind Cicada which was excellent so we much anticipated our stay at the more expensive Cicada Lodge.

Overall it was perfectly good but really nothing special.

Staff tried hard. Cameron was very helpful and friendly. Young man at desk at front (manager?) was inattentive to needs of guests and more interested in his social media.

Room fine and large but dull.

Pool good but small. Water very chemically.

Food good.

A Lovely Surprise

We were on a group tour of the Kimberley and Cicada Lodge was a lovely surprise after a dismal stay at our previous location. The property appeared brand new but there were awards for excellence dating back to 2015 on the walls so it must have been older than it seems. The rooms are light, large and modern with every comfort and a lovely big glass door leading onto a balcony overlooking the untouched bush beyond. We did not eat dinner at the 'Lodge' as we were treated to a Sunset Dinner cruise on the Katherine River through “Nitmiluk Gorge” - fabulous. Breakfast was excellent, service was also great and I certainly could have stayed longer. This was one of the best places we stayed on our two week Kimberley tour.

Beautiful Retreat

A beautiful lodge, small pool but fabulous areas to relax and enjoy the fabulous pre dinner complimentary canapés and drinks. The lodge is clean and well maintained and the staff were friendly and professional.
Dinner is not included but there is an a la carte menu with a limited choice , which is fair enough considering the remote location. We had pre booked dinner for our first night having been advised that they offered an a la carte menu but were then given a set menu, it turns out that the a la carte menu has to be chosen the night before so this was a little disappointing, especially when we looked at the other diners desserts which looked delicious and our set menu 'dessert' was cheese and biscuits!
