Mick needs to realise that some people have sufficient knowledge to realise that not all his information was correct or even plausible. I’ll be suggesting to my friends there are better ways to spend their money.

Room quite good but microwave and a few more basics would have been appreciated.”
Position and setting were amazing. All staff provided excellent customer service. The Time Travel tour was well worth it and Mick our guide was both informative and entertaining. A little more attention to detail in cleaning would be good but overall was fine.

The hotel was fine but...”
The resort was fine but a group that was traveling for a wedding Parked their bus right outside their room which ruined the experience for me as I couldn’t sit outside in peace and enjoy the view, and the group started loading the bus next morning at 5 am, shuffling feet, laughing, greeting each other while we were trying to sleep! The staff were made aware of this thrice before they took action. The resort’s bus service to the lookout was abruptly stopped without notice (bus needed to go away to Hawker for a service) on the website which also meant we walked almost 7.5 km with 2 little cranky kids (not done!). Hotel wasn’t able to arrange any other arrangements even when we requested and advised we would be happy to pay for a smaller vehicle. Overall not the best resort experience of my life!

The staff were excellent and in particular the pride of the tour guides in their culture and heritage added a lot to the overall positive impression we have gained of the resort. It is a wonderful location and well worth a visit. We wish the indigenous owners great success with their enterprise.

Beautiful surrounds”
The park was absolutely stunning and very relaxing. The resort was nice and our room was very comfortable. We were disappointed not to be able to connect to the wifi and our telephone network didn't work either so we had no communication for the time we were there. The menu in the restaurant became a little bit repetitive after several nights of the same thing, especially for my vegetarian husband who only had 2 choices. We had an enjoyable stay though and would recommend the place and will definitely return.

Flinders Ranges are an incredible place and well worth a visit. Being remote it's a bit pricey. Bar, Restaurant and reception staff friendly and effective. Unit was not well equipped or cleaned to expected standard...i know they are using local community members which i admire. To improve this they need to have a skilled supervisor with great teaching skills, a checklist to review that tasks and units have been completed would help. I would still recommend, but be aware.

Acceptable”
We arrived just before 4pm and our accommodation was not ready. We were offered a complimentary drink in the bar and accepted that the resort was busy due to the change in weather. Arriving at the room to unpack at 5pm, it was a complete disappointment due to the dated furnishings and the filthy bathroom. We had to clean the bath before we could use the shower. The dishes were also filthy and the carpets/rugs were covered with mud. My son refused to sleep in the bed as it smelt funny. The room was certainly not what was advertised. We booked a meal for 6pm in the restaurant, and the quality of food was poor and extremely overpriced. The staff did replace my meal after a beetle climbed out of the salad, but to be honest I was reluctant to eat it. We were booked to stay for 3 nights but left after the first night due to the lack of hygiene. In all fairness the staff were polite but the resort was definitely understaffed.

The room's view was right out into the Eucalyptus grove; Kangaroos passing by on occasion. Front desk staff was average, but the staff at the bar worked very hard for everyone. It's a bit of a drive to get to this place, but well worth it.

Booking made vis AGODA was not on their system when we arrived. Then the flight booking was stuffed up.Then day 2 our room hadn't been serviced and it took 2 reminders to get that done.The room was in dire need of refurbishment..mould in shower, cracked tiles and stuff like that.The whole so called "resort" needs a serious overhaul.

Wilpena Pound resort is the only accommodation in the national Park, so there is no choice. Obviously the location is perfect, the room was comfortable and the breakfast very good. A couple of aspects reflected the need for maintenance and the service was also in need of sharpening up.

Location, friendliness of staff and wildlife
We took some overseas visitors there so they could see for themselves how awesome the Flinders Ranges are and they weren't disappointed. The rooms were very good and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We had a delay in getting our dinner one night and they more than made up for the inconvenience that night and the following morning. I'd recommend Wilpena Resort and we will be be back.
