Loved the Resort, room excellent, we enjoyed the restaurent food great, bar had live singer, he was very good and the King Canyon was well worth a visit, the only drawback was the lack of Internet, but hech, we were on holiday, so relax and enjoy the peace and quiet that , no mobile service can offer.

Build in 1990 to employ locals but seemed to be 100% run by backpackers. They were lovely people and provided excellent service - but where were the Aussie workers? Great restaurant for dinner and breakfast. Amazing what they offer in such a remote location. On the other hand a little 'bistro' nearby (owned by the same facility) was a joke... More

We were upgraded from a hostel room to a motel style unit. What a bonus! The room was very well kept with a spacious bathroom and a quiet and efficient air-conditioner. The outlook from the balcony provided privacy and a connection with nature. The setting of the resort is beautiful. The meal at the BBQ grill was tasty and satisfying.

Unfortunately, if you're not travelling in your own 4WD or caravan, then you really don't have a lot of choice for accommodation. You can either choose super-expensive rooms or moderately-expensive lodge accommodation with shared facilities! Either way, it's expensive for what you get! But that's all over the outback. After a full-on day doing the full rim walk around Kings... More

We just finished our stay at Kings Canyon Resort, stayed in the Deluxe Spa Suite, room was very nice & well furnished, a little bit of mold in the shower but overall quite nice. The restaurants need a little bit of a shake up with staff training & good supervisors would possibly fix the little bit of uncoordinated staff doing... More

Overall, the my family's experience at the resort was a positive one. We absolutely loved the landscape and the location of the resort being so close to the canyon itself was fantastic. Except for our experience upon check-in (which was unfortunately quite disappointing), we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the resort.....which was all too brief!!

We enjoyed both breakfast and dinner at Carmichael's during our stay at Kings Canyon Resort. Breakfast buffet was sumptuous and delicious. However, know you MUST make reservations through guest registration where you ck in. Additionally, though we made reservations, we arrived early and we were made to wait though assigned table stood empty the entire 45 mins ! Soup was... More

Our family of 5 stayed one night in a budget lodge room and it was the only negative to our entire trip. We were initially hesitant about booking as we had read some negative reviews, but there were not many options for a family of 5 - we would have had to book 2 rooms at the resort to accomodate...

The stunning location, peace and comfort of the resort left us feeling invigorated and relaxed at the same time. We loved every minute, and will be back with others very soon. The room was a great size, with a fabulous view, and the restaurant provided us with varied and tasty meals to fuel the walk around the canyon perfectly.

We stayed there for one night in a budget room with no en-suite. The room costing about 130 odd was cheap compared to Uluru but was disappointed. Room very similar to old pub accommodation! Tiled floors and two uncomfortable single beds and pillows. Cobwebs on ceiling and lights filled with dead bugs! Resort advertised two TV Channels , well there... More
