Guests at this property can share a meal in the lovely barbecue area. Each self-contained apartment features a kitchenette, flat-screen TV and free WiFi. I had a late check in and one phone call I was in my room the staff was absolutely wonderful no issues straight to bed from a long travel.
Featuring free WiFi and an outdoor pool, King Sound Resort Hotel offers accommodations in Derby. Guests can enjoy the on-site restaurant. Free private parking is available on site. The place is need of an update but due to tourism and short supply of customers the money wouldn’t be there for that. Is clean & comfortable with very friendly staff
everything was shut no cafes open no sunset dinner at the wharf as advertised in tourist brochure, tourist information shut when book stated open till 1pm no where to get info re tides places to see etc we wasted hours just driving around waiting for bus to take us to our tour of the falls Derby very much a dump won't be back and don't recommend it if we do the falls again will be trying to do from Broome. Amazed at the great sporting complex but need to open shops cafe etc if you want tourists to visit
Gateway to the Kimberleys, Horizontal Falls and the Gibb River road 4WD only but gives access to Windjana, Bell, Lenard Gorges, Tunnel Creek, Manning and Mitchell Falls and El Questro. Best when graded, otherwise very rough. Derby is a small town, has a walking track to the wharf and back. Accommodation options are the Derby Lodge, Spinifex or the two caravan parks. Rodeo and camp draft was good fun. Jila cafe, great cakes and food. The bakery does sushi and great pies. Neaps at the Derby Lodge, great breakfast and have a cocktails at 5:00. King tide at full moon. Book shop lots of interesting choices, busy little place. All the mechanics, 4WD and tyre places were friendly and very helpful. Boab trees are eveywhere! Very busy in the Dry season, not so many tourists in the Wet.
Checked out big tides at Jetty and sunset, this seemed to be popular thing to do. There is a sealed bike path from the town to jetty which is popular, it is about 2.5 k one way. Viewed prison tree and heritage walk around town with panels to read. Go to visitor centre it is full of great information.
Derby is a hidden gem with some history to explore. Would recommend to take the 30 km trip there from the main road turn off -just to see the 1500 year old boab tree - if nothing else. Has port and military history also.
Derby is a grand Lady of a Town. She has all that is required of a traveller. Clean place with lots to see and do. The Wharf is incredible with it’s huge tides. Beautiful sunsets. Great restaurants.
Information Centre excellent. Mowamjum art centre outstanding. Trip to Windjana gorge and Tunnel Creek very worthwhile. Heritage walk and Museum interesting. Dusk at Jetty and Wharf cafe great. Rustys bakery great.
We are two couples traveling the NW together. We enjoyed our stay at the Mud Crab. Brooke, the new Manager, couldn’t have been more helpful throughout our stay. He has many plans to redevelop the hotel. It’s a friendly spot for travellers to meet and chat together. Towels & toiletries were excellent; bed comfortable, air conditioning effective and fridge, toaster and kettle all useful.
Very central, with a range of accommodation options to suit all travellers. One of the main hotels is just across the road and provides some typical outback pub fare. Neaps Bistro is part of the Lodge complex and serves full breakfast as well ad lunch and dinners. Excellent.
Clean but old. It was actually educational for my kids as to what hotels looked like in my childhood as nothing has been renovated in 20+ years. I didn't mind the oldness but the price should have matched the accomodation better.
Good small town hotel with full hospitality facilities
