The resort family rooms are excellent. They have been renovated to a great standard and the beds are super comfortable. Dining options are very limited but they are doing the best they can with little staff. The sunset viewing area with music and bar are a highlight.

Unfortunately for us, there were a lot of renovations going on and it felt like a construction site. Amenities of the camp and dorm facilities very clean. Checkin was very slow, this perhaps due to limited staff at the moment, expect this would change.

The Buffet dinner was the worst I have ever had, no staff plates piled up 7 or eight heigh, order off the menu at least it would be fresh, buffet had left overs from breakfast, sarahlea banana cake. Breakfast was much better. Front count staff very poor service, arrived a little early and was told to come back at 3.00pm as room was not ready, spoke to house keeping to get more towels and that said room had been ready for a long time. If I could stay some where else I would next time but they have a monopoly so service does not matter. Misleading advertising when book thinking you get a clamping room and end up in a motel room, very expensive for what you get. Next time will bring a caravan or tent and save my money. Very disappointed with Kings Cannon Resort.

Accomodation was quite good for a budget room. The resort is spread out nicely so fits into its surroundings perfectly
