We really liked the bush setting; the salt water pool is great; & King's Canyon itself is stunning. We understand the difficulties with keeping everything going in the off-peak season, but it was a little disappointing that some food/entertainment facilities weren't available & the restaurant staff seemed to be disorganised. However the food was good.

We stayed in a nice room, modern clean motel style with a veranda which was nice to sit out on and watch birds in the scrub. Iron and board and tea making in room. Only criticism was a little detailed cleaning needed, ie spider web in the bathroom window with a black spider living in it. Insect spray in the room put to good use! The resort pool was cloudy but blue and we swam and it seemed clean. Nice breakfast provided. Overall a good stay.

We were welcomed with a smile at reception and enjoyed the overall friendly feel of the place. We had a spa room while a little dated in some area's the view from the spa was amazing and the bed was very comfortable and air conditioner worked quietly and efficiently. We also had buffet breakfast which was of good variety and quality.

Love the luxury of this beautiful resort, right in the heart of desert. Very quiet and peaceful. Nice pool to cool off in at the end of the day. Loved sitting outside in the balcony area, listening to birds and watching them flitting around in the scrub. Bed was extremely comfortable with good quality linen. The restaurant was fantastic with an interesting and delicious menu. Highly recommend a visit here to take in the stunning nature of Kings Canyon. We stayed in a Deluxe room. Would love to return again one day!

The canyon itself was awesome. The food options were expensive. The kitchen facilities were in need of updating.

A good budget place to stay, but complacency I feel has crept in --- only one other place to stay! Long queues for food, never enough staff on duty at the bar. The overall appearance needs a BIG tidy up. why have the outside eating area face the side of the restaurant, when you have magnificent views all around.
