The resort offered simple rooms but surrounded by magnificent scenery and gardens. A short walk to a platform provided a spectacular sunset view. Excellent dinner at the restaurant, good variety of breakfast foods at the breakfast buffet.

I was a little hesitant to stay here with some of the reviews, but didn’t want to miss the canyon hike so I decided to stay here just one night. I really enjoyed the stay and while one overnight was enough to do the canyon hike I wouldn’t have minded staying another night if I had the time. I drove...

The resort and staff here are great- definitely recommend! The sunset viewing platform (and the cold cider) was great, and the pool was big and the kids loved it. The staff were also friendly and helpful esp when I had an emergency call come through about a family member back home which was really appreciated. There is no phone or...

We had two nights here and really enjoyed the stay. We got to choose our own unpowered campsite from a number of nice grassy sites. (The powered sites didn't appear to be grassy) The spacious toilet block had been freshly painted and was lovely and clean. There was a nice looking pool and kids playground. Lots of washing machines for...

I wasn't sure how kings canyon would relate compared to Uluru but I'm really glad my wife and I went. We stayed 2 nights at the resort and really enjoyed our stay. The resort is really small (compared to yulara). it's a campground and some hotel style lodging, along with a bar, a cafe/BBQ, and a gas station. We did...

The bedding smelled like the previous occupant - ie not everything is washed. The room was not especially cleanm with dirty cobwebs under the bathroom sink. Our room was at the end of a row and the water system for that row was against our wall and made loud chugging noises all night. The food was awful. Service was big...

Dear Lizziejane58 Sorry to read your review of your recent stay with us. As you have mentioned the group shared platters to the table , I am presuming you travelled as part of a coach tour for your stay. We have many such groups stay with us frequently and have not received this kind of feedback regarding the meals, service...

My partner and I stopped overnight at Kings Canyon on our way from Alice Springs to Uluru. I had booked an accessible room due to my mobility problems. Considering the room price I was very disappointed in the quality of the room. The resort looked nothing like what is pictured on the website. The room was not very clean and...

Stayed last week, Two nights, spa room for special treat. Smelly bathroom, old frayed towels, stained carpet, dirty bath, no bath salts to relax. Breakfast ok, no order for poached eggs. Restaurant staff good, evening meal, tasty. The view on the balcony was great. At $500 a night a big disappointment. Staying at Kings Creek next time

Service at reception was not really friendly and helpful. The ammenities were not that clean. The camp Kitchen is tiny and also not very clean. We got a budget cabin which was tiny but fine. Room was not that clean though. The floor was dirty. Don't really accomodate well for large families.

We stayed over night in spa room. It was all we needed for the evening, but when we went to use the spa bath, it would be nice if you are going to supply a spa room to supply some bubbles to put in bath. As no shop sells this. Also when in bath most people often look up. Roof...
