Palm Court Budget Motel and Backpackers is an ideally located 20 room motel in the heart of Katherine, perfectly suited to owner operator, social housing enterprise or those seeking a development opportunity.

The motel is being sold on a freehold basis, situated on a large corner block of approximately 2150m2 with plenty of room for additional development (stca) approval required. It is positioned on the corner of Third and Giles Streets just 300 metres from the Katherine University, supermarkets and within 500 metres to Katherine Centre.

Current owner/operator has freshly renovated, re-tiled & plumbed 14 of 20 en-suited bathrooms and is re-positioning the business model to focus on niche local market catering to strong and consistent demand for long term budget accommodation. Katherine currently only has 2 other ‘social housing’ facilities making this accommodation business an attractive prospect to explore possibilities of government subsidies.

The business requires minimal staff (especially for long term residents) and can comfortably operate with one on-site manager/caretaker. Conservative business forecasts offering over 10% return.

* 20 x Motel Rooms - various configurations (single, double and dorm-style bedrooms)
* This is a configuration well suited to a back-packers market and the dorm beds still sell @ $150pw per bed (could easily be converted to family rooms if required.
* All rooms with private en-suites and air-conditioning
* Swimming pool
* Common kitchen and laundry facilities
* Reception area
* Spacious 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom caretakers residence (open plan lounge and kitchen).
* On site parking
* 30 KW grid centred solar system
* Central location – 2 minutes walk (500m) from town centre

The business is currently run under management and with longer term customers, less cleaning/maintenance is required. The accommodation has a communal kitchen and communal laundry facilities along with plenty of parking for all guests.
