We stayed two nights as part of an organised trek along sections of the Larapinta trail. We walked into the resort from Ormiston Gorge, about an easy days hike. Given the location the rooms were better than expected. Clean and tidy yet basic. But that is all we expected to find in the middle of a arid region where it... More

We camped here but used the restaurant for dinner and breakfast. I would prefer not to use their camping area again but would return to stay in the accommodation which overlooks the absolutely delightful gorge. The old buildings are full of interest with maps and photos - and the crackling fire, on a not particularly cold morning, added a warmth... More

Readers will have to be careful seeing such excellent 4 star reviews - the area is wonderful with so many sights such as the MacDonnell Ranges and Ormiston Gorge that make it an essential stop for anyone wanting to see the best of the Northern Territory. It is only 133 from Alice Springs on a good road so it is... More

Stopped for lunch whilst exploring the West MacDonnell ranges. A beautiful scenery to have lunch by, gave the kids a chance to explore & the chicken burgers went down a treat! Very friendly staff & clean toilets too!

Used homestead as a base for Steve Parish Photo course. Great position for daily trips, excellent evening meals, tasty packed lunches, very accommodating with breakfast times.Friendly staff, especially "trainees". Some reviews we had seen were not good but you need to realise that this is the Outback. The rooms were well serviced, clean and bed comfortable perhaps bore water stain... More

Having read some reviews, my expectations were not high before arriving here but after staying wished we had a bit longer. We were greeted warmly at reception by Nicky and shown to our room. We dropped our bags and headed to reception where we were met by Adam who took us on a helicopter ride over the stunning ranges. He... More

The location is stunning, with lovely views from the small verandah outside the rooms. Our room was small and basic, but well set out and comfortable. The fridge was useful. Heating was good. The communal kitchen was well equipped and everything functioned. We were provided with good service on check-in. There's a small lounge area near reception, a bar, cafe... More

We had an accident between Kings Canyon and Glen Helen. Jarryd and the team were most helpful preparing a BBQ pack for us when we got in late, so we had something to eat. A lovely place, I only wish we had more time there than eventuated. We will need to back a finish seeing this beautiful part of Australia.

After a let down at the place prior to arriving in Glen Helen this place was a wonderful surprise. The views are amazing and the homestead is excellent. Manger and staff were helpful and attentive. We stayed in a double room and it was comfortable with hearing and cooling. The gorge was amazing. The kitchen could be used by motel... More

A group of five of walkers from Victoria occupied four standard rooms (nos 15 to 18) for two nights. We arrived late afternoon, and were greeted warmly. The lady at Reception was very helpful, and provided us with plenty of information about meal options, as well as features of the property. She escorted us to our rooms, rather than leave... More
