I think the deluxe rooms could do with a bit of an update and maybe a smelly thingsin the bathrooms- had a weird smell to it. I think when you pay $469 per night for a room you kinda expect free WiFi - but not to be here. Was a lovely place to just wonder around and take in the...

The canyon rim walk was a bit difficult but well worthwhile. Take plenty of money as it's very expensive here compared to Alice Springs. The petrol, food and drink prices were unbelievable. The resort is right next to the Canyon.

A lovely resort in the middle of nowhere with great amenities considering its isolation. We stayed in a spa room which was beautiful with a large window looking out to the wilderness. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Loved the Kings Canyon rim walk which was hard going at first but well worth the effort.

Overall our stay was good, we were in the campground, it was neat and tidy, the facilities need repairs, camp kitchens need more facilities, toasters kettles. Hot water not working , outside BBQ only 2 were working, nice grassed areas for tents. Over priced for unpowered site. Staff very friendly

Considering how far the hotel was from anywhere, the facilities and services were good. Room was large and clean with spa bath. Outback bbq was well cooked. Live music was pleasant. Breakfast was good. Ideal stopover for doing kings canyon and then Alice Springs via the Mereenie Loop.

Had a wonderful time at Kings Canyon Resort; quite, peaceful, beautiful desert surroundings and stunning canyon itself. Walks were well marked and maintained. Dinner Under a Desert Moon at the resort was beautiful - fine food, fine wines, stunning surroundings, a magic fireplace, and a wonderful hostess,with an inquisitive dingo peeking at us from time to time. Room was great...

We had a budget room and were pleasantly surprised at how well equipped it was. Good bed, close to a shower block. Great value for those not camping or caravaning. The onsite buffet is a good option for dinner, reasonably priced considering the location. Wifi would be nice as there is no phone signal, heard rumours of a pay for...

The deluxe rooms are large, clean and tastefully built around a picture framed hot tub facing the rocks and desert scape. Beds are a little hard, staff and services were excellent. The under the desert moon dining experience was excellent. I would highly recommend it.

this is your only choice in Kings Canyon. The resort is in a beautiful, natural, outback setting with a good view of the mountains, plenty of birds around the property. We stayed in a standard room. The room was a nice sized, clean with a large private patio with chairs to sit on.
