having been here in my own tent of various sizes over the years and having stayed at the 4person tent not to confuse with the new glamping tents. this motel room was great and good for overnight or two. however not as cheap as the camping. thumbs up from me. i did take a look whilst i was here at the glamping tents as we bumped into a friend who was staying but after would not bother in future and still take a motel room instead.

The property has enough amenities including a proper fridge. But need to have more information regarding the area. The maps are not clear enough. We went to 4wheel drive tour and got lost somepoint because information not clear enough.

The accommodation is good and with all the amenities. The staff were really helpful in providing tips to explore Wilpena. The restaurant however is not worth the time or money. The meal was less than adequate or desirable.

Location excellent. Welcome to Country and DJ for New Year's Eve were both excellent. Restaurant needed more variety. Drink prices a little too high.
