When thinking about a trip to Australia, visions of Sydney's Harbour Bridge, the laneways of Melbourne or swimming the iconic Great Barrier Reef come to mind. Well, now let us draw your attention to a hotel that's not only in the middle of "Crocodile Country" but is also shaped like a giant man-eating reptile.

Far away from all of the typical Aussie tourist spots, is the Northern Territory which is locally known as the "top end" since its, well, on the top of the country. It's home to not-so-little rock called Ayers Rock, but even further north is the Kakadu National Park, the largest national park in Australia and a great place to see real Aussie crocs.

Accor Hotels have put their stamp on Jabiru, in the middle of the national park, by taking over this Crocodile Hotel, (formerly managed by Holiday Inn) and turning it into a Mercure Hotel.

Sometimes a guest's hellish review ends up actually more curious about a hotel.

Here is what one tipster recently said about the Holiday Inn Gagudju Corcodile Hotel in Kakadu National Park in Australia's Northwest Territory:

This place really is shaped like a crocodile.

Do not come here if you want a life - it is full of pensioners - albeit very nice ones.  The restaurant and all signs of life close down at 9pm.

Breakfast with one toaster, one coffee machine and about 100 people was also interesting.

Rooms are clean but that's about it.

C'mon. How many times in your life can you say you stayed inside a crocodile and shoot friends the Google Maps url to prove it?  Bring on the one toaster breakfast.
