Rather run down. Not managed locally. Managed from Queensland by a company not contactable by phone. Very few rooms opened for business.

Thank you for your review. As a result of COVID we are working with a limited team and are opening a small number of rooms initially, and gradually increasing the number of rooms each month going forward. We appreciate your patience as we work on a staggered approach for reopening which is measured and cautious.

Just a beautiful place and so relaxing. Garden paths could do with a blow off with a garden blower.

Great location. Reasonable prices. Just a shame so much is closed over off-peak - trails, attractions, hotels, etc.

Thank you for your review score. We're sorry some of the trails were closed due to the summer heat.

The Flinders ranges is lovely and absolutely worth a visit. The resort unfortunately has been let go and the staff are not particularly friendly or willing to recommend walks / activities. Perhaps if you are visiting stay somewhere else to enjoy all the Flinders Ranges has to offer.

The setting is amazing. The staff were friendly and informative. The walks were well-signposted. The local IGA was very well-stocked. The rooms were a bit “tired” and looked in need of an update
