Agree with previous reviewer, AnAussie. Having been in the Kimberley before, we knew what to expect as far as accommodation goes. We too stayed in the guest house, and it was basic, but very clean and comfortable. After all, you are not in the Kimberley to spend all your time in your room - you are out and about exploring...

Hard to out a value on this stay. We stayed in the "guest house" which, in effect, was a big tin shed with a concrete floor, with mesh windows and a wire door that doesn't really close. I froze that night but the others managed OK. Hot shower, plenty of hot water, but all pretty basic. Meals were in the... More

The campground was nice and grassy and the meal in the house adequate with pleasant company. The star of our stay was the pools - just lovely. This property is beautiful and worth a visit on the Gibb.

2 couples spent 2 nights in the Rondavel & the old School house & wished we had booked for longer. The managers Mike &Karen were very helpful ably assisted by Bruce & Bronwyn. Our meals were terrific coupled with good company & a lot of laughter. Don't expect 5 star accommodation, but it is very adequate, clean & more like... More

Personal welcome from the station manger on the veranda, green grassed campsites, excellent things to see and do, and good old fashioned hospitality! Party of 3 Ultimate Camper trailers stayed in the campground (2 nights), and enjoyed dinner on the veranda of the station - cooked by the station manager! BYO wine - another winning strategy! Excellent things to see... More

Stayed as a group of 7, great greeting by the hosts. Lovely green camping area, new bathroom facilities, good hot water for showers etc. evening meal for a price, was average, but a good night company wise. Good road to and around the station. Would recommend to the GGR traveller.

We stayed here for one night and were impressed with their facilities. The campsites are huge, each has a fire place with grill and free wood already cut to size, the showers are gas and hot all day and there are Lyrebirds and wallabies wandering around sites. There is also a restaurant which was closed on Saturday night we stayed.... More

My husband and i along with another couple stayed here for 2 nights on a recent 4WD trip along the Gibb River Road. While this is supposed to be a family run station - we were greeted by 5 English backpackers (the owners were in residence at their other property) who were in charge. Everything about our accommodation and the... More
