First things first, I like to make allowances (see review of King's Canyon Resort in Australia). These guys are many miles away from the nearest city and with that in mind they do some things pretty well. We breakfasted and dined at the restaurant twice and the food was fine, the service varying from monosyllabic (barman) to excellent (Charlotte and Aaron).
The lodge's public areas are tasteful and comfortable and present the best of the facility.
But the rooms and accommodation blocks themselves are a let-down. They're tired and the premium price is not indicative of the fairly basic standard. Again, costs are probably higher. What disappointed me most was the cleanliness, or lack of it. The corridiors were shabby, and our room had dust behind the beds (as I was looking for a power outlet), cobwebs ... the standard of housekeeping just wasn't very good, and that surely is *not* a function of remoteness?
Sequoia/Kings' Canyon is a breathtakingly beautiful area and my most accounts this is the best of the accommodation. We certainly had a pleasant enough stay, but I was quite disappointed relative to expectations.
