Had it not been for a very noisy generator which rumbled all night just behind the back row of rooms, I would have given this place full marks. It is of course not a 5 star lodging, but considering the remote location and it being the only place to stay within several hundred kilometers, then we were very positively surprised about this place. The food in the restaurant was very delicious, the rooms were sufficient with a nice warm shower and the wifi was working very well, better than other places along the trip from Alice Springs to Uluru. The waiting time just to order food was a little annoying as only one person took orders from a long line of people, but when we finally got our order down, it did not take long for some very tasty food to arrive. Sometimes you get an experience beyond expectations and that is what this place offered. …
Stayed 2 nights and although the accommodation was basic, it was clean and comfortable. the facilities such as the restaurant, bar, pool and outside deck were great, as were the staff. There was free coffee/tea available. The Lodge also offered great views and a 10 minute walk to Glen Helen Gorge. Other attractions were only a short drive away.
Dirt campground with basic but clean facilities. Some shade. 10 minutes easy walk to Glen Helen Gorge where we were able to swim. Resort also has a small but clean salt water chlorinated pool. Friendly, multicultural staff. Good, reasonably priced food and drinks at the lodge restaurant - inside and outside dining - basic but fun and friendly atmosphere (and an air conditioned escape from the 38 deg heat!). Basic emergency supplies available- 10 litre box water costs $10. Ormiston and Red Bank Gorges are an easy drive away and are both must-do sites.
We stayed here for three nights while we walked sections of the Larapinta Trail and although the accommodation was basic, the restaurant, bar etc were great. There was free coffee/tea available. The staff were excellent and took details of our walks and return times in case we encountered problems
Stayed one night in a powered campsite. Everything was good, especially the hot showers. Staff were friendly and it has a nice deck to have a drink right in front of the rugged gorge. We were told the meals were quite good as well. Free wi-fi is very, very slow - it didn't hurt to be out of range for a few days. Walked up to the Mt Sondor lookout which was good.
