Although I wasn't expecting much, I was disappointed to find my room not very clean. Power points and switches had room marks on them, dirty chux left in the sink and the shower curtain looked like it had been vomited on. The room service sign you hang on the door was broken, however we jammed it in the door but... More

We stayed 3 nights in the glamping Safari Tents. These were excellent but the breakfast tent had only one staff on hand and he could not keep up with the food required and the washing of dishes. Each night we ate in the resort restaurant and the food was excellent. The staff however were totally unprofessional, and need a lot... More

We loved Flinders Ranges National Park. It was spectacular, great off-roads and walks. My biggest complaint there was the hospitality (customer service) @ Wilpena Pound Resort. The guys manning the visitor information centre seemed like they were either too tired working there or they just did not enjoy their jobs. I have been to parks in various other countries and...

Arrived at the resort to find the room had not been cleaned. As others arrived they had the same experience. Not nice when you arrive after a long drive. Rooms dated, tiny and kitchenware damaged and dirty. Definitely not a resort. Fortunately the surroundings are spectacular.

The rooms look fabulous on their website but they are very tired, in desperate need of maintenance and the housekeeping is woeful at best non existent at worst. We arrived at 4.30 to very frazzled staff and a room not ready. We were told they only had 2 cleaners working that day so we would need to wait. Many disgruntled... More

For what I have read on other guest staying at the resort is very similar to my experienced. The accommodation was a bit dated and expected more of a resort feel while staying at the Resort. The accommodation was clean and had basic amenities, no artwork in the room so it felt quite bland, some minor repairs required in the... More

Wilpena resort borders the famous Wilpena Pound part of the Flinders Ranges. Getting to the Resort is easy enough with sealed road all the way. There is a variety of accommodation available depending on what takes your fancy and facilities. There is just the simple camp site for those who want to bring their own tents,then there are powered Caravan... More
