Our first trip to El Questro and the Kimberley has surpassed all of our expectations. From the understated luxury of the Homestead, to the excellent service, the amazing food and wine and delightful company of the other guests and especially the incredible location overlooking the Chamberlain gorge. Wow. Gorge walks and cruises, heli fishing on the banks of the Durack... More

This place was incredibly special from the moment you walked in. In a way it would be wrong to review it in detail as it would spoil the specialness to any newcomer. The individual attention given to customers was second to none. It is extremely expensive but..... Also great other guests made this a very one off special experience.

We had three nights in the homestead. No question the rooms are nice given the remoteness of the location, the food is plentiful (they try hard but it's not cordon bleu), the wines are of a good standard. But all up, it is overpriced and this is reflected in their offering repeat guests a significant discount. Comparing with other luxury... More

We recently (June 2014) stayed for 4 nights as part of a 3+ week trip to the Kimberley's and Kakadu. Without a doubt El Questro Homestead was the highlight in every possible respect. Our Cliff Side Villa was amazing - literally right on the edge of a cliff. All the front of house staff were extraordinary - the service was... More

My husband and I stayed at Saffire in April 2013, so we were excited to try another property of the Luxury Lodges group. While the grounds and tours of this property are unlike anything else - cliffs overlooking crocs, private waterfall hikes, incredibly beautiful gorges - the hotel itself wasn't as impressive as we expected. Our Cliffside retreat, while gorgeous... More

El Questro homestead is a luxury experience and a fantastic way to enjoy the Kimberley Region. We stayed for 4 nights which was right on the money for us. We found it hard to find fault with the food & wine or the accommodation. The service was exceptional at all levels, the activities allowed us to experience the Kimberleys at... More

This must be one of the best experiences in the world... our room was lovely (especially with the bath and shower built over the edge of the gorge!) The view was wonderful... waking up to the river, the sandstone cliffs, the birds etc. Everything worked well and we were very comfortable and happy there, despite the room not being as... More

We are a company who wanted to give away a trip to El Questro. Being a suposed premier business in our home state we would have expected some basic professional courtesy, such as phone calls being returned.

We travelled to El Questro Homestead with friends and spent six sybaritic days being pampered and entertained. The rooms are fabulous,there is something special about showering over the chasm.
