Fantastic experience with one flaw

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 4 weeks ago
Before booking a stay at the Homestead, I contacted the Reservations office to check if it would be possible to arrange transfers between Kununurra and El Questro as I thought I might have to hire a 4WD. (The dirt access road that includes a few river crossings can be challenging). I was told that scheduled transfers from Kununurra hotels take place in the morning. So I arranged a transfer the day following my afternoon flight from Perth. A few months before my stay I was sent information about the transfer that was described as "unscheduled" and asked to pay another 500 AUD.

When I arrived at Kununurra airport, I was surprised to see an El Questro representative who was meeting some guests off the same flight. The incorrect transfer information resulted in me missing the only opportunity during my stay to make a guided visit to Emma Gorge. Following my experience, I suggest anyone staying at El Questro hires a 4WD so that you are not dependent on staff availability to drive you to various places of interest.

The rest of my Homestead experience was 10/10. All the staff I met were friendly and tried to make the stay as enjoyable as possible. The food was of high quality without being pretentious. The scenery, sunsets and clear night skies are stunning. I had a river gorge room that probably has the best view anyone can have while sitting in a bath!

Expectations for a place like this were high to begin with, but they surpassed. The rooms are fine, but what makes the Homestead special is the feeling that the entire property is yours to enjoy. And what a property - dine by the cliffside; lounge around the pool; relax on the patio. Food was superb and the staff, while providing impeccable service, were fun to banter with. The range of outings, led by a very competent group of rangers, offered something for everyone. We recommend 4 or 5 nights to take full advantage and allow some time to relax around the property.

A wonderful experience. A bucket list tick. We created a once in a lifetime memory. From the moment we were met upon arrival with a glass of bubbly we knew this was going to be a special experience. A total package which although expensive was well worth it. The food, wines, the staff& tours are exceptional but without any pretension. You are looked after 100% of the time. Nothing is too much trouble. Such a stunning setting in the outback but with total luxury all the way. Thank you all for a wonderful time.

Room tip: The level of accommodation you choose makes little difference to your experience. You are hardly ever in your room anyway

Our stay at The Homestead was everything we hoped for! Amazing location, beautiful facilities, delicious food & staff for whom nothing was too much trouble. A small group of like minded travellers to share meals & conversation with was also a highlight of our stay. We took the opportunity to relax & soak up our time at The Homestead, also taking part in some of the tours on offer. A wonderful experience.

A lovely place, the accommodation and food are excellent and the setting matchless. Accommodation in Western Australia can be disappointing but El Quester homestead is truly deserving of the description luxury hotel

The original Station come tourist stopover on the Gibb River Road.
We stayed in a riverside studio and our friends camped.
You must do the river gorge cruise and hike up to Emma Gorge.
We also hiked along the river and drove up to lookouts to watch the sunsets.
Nice lively bar and excellent restaurant.
