We arrived here by bus from Uluru and it was very hot!!! The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful . We were fortunate enough to have a spar room and one side was plate glass. The view of the stars was unbelievable . The room was impeccably clean. For dinner in the restaurant we had one of the best...

We stayed three nights at the Kings Canyon Resort, and we loved every minute of it. Firstly, the setting is stunning. It really is in the middle of nowhere, with small red earth hills just outside your window (the biggest window being next to the spa bath - what a view!). The rooms are large, clean, comfortable, and most importantly,...

When you go to Kings Canyon you can stay at Kings Canyon Resort. It is a nice place with pool and restuarent. It is close to the canyon and they offer drinks at sunset. Our visit was outside the holidays but It is still nice.

In the middle of the outback this resort has a range of different types of accommodation. We stayed in the hotel which was in single storey arrangement. Beds were comfortable and the bathroom was adequate. You don't come here for a long stay but to access the local scenery. Don't expect Wi-Fi and mobile signals or extensive television channels. That...

As the only resort in miles they can price as they want. At hotels.com it claimed that the rooms should be 28 square meters, but the room was less than 20 and very basic. Bed was bad, after 2 nights our backs struggled. Toilet facilities was really dirty even if I came there 1 minutes after they cleaned it. The...

My husband and I visited in November during the off season, as a result the resort was only about 10% full with limited services available. The staff numbers were at a minimum. We booked a Deluxe Spa Room which was lovely. It featured 2 Queen Beds and an ensuite bathroom, with a large spa and private balcony. The window from...

If you're driving the red centre then this is one of the few places to stay. We were glad we'd booked a deluxe room, as this was adequate. It was pretty clean, with a small balcony and spa bath. Unfortunately the room smelled a bit of drains, and the air con was leaking a bit. For evening meal we ate...

The hotel is some 8 KM from Kings Canyon. It is made up of a series of cabins in rows of five around the pool and some open ground. The room was nothing special, but OK.
