                room was comfortable but looking a bit old, the food in the Bistro was OK at an OK price

                Room was very comfortable and the setting very relaxing

                Noise from the adjoining room was quite noticeable at night.

                What's not to like! the most fabulous spot, beautiful Australian nature and fauna. Very comfortable and private accommodation. Did not get an opportunity to experience the dining in experience - too tired following the walk! Maybe next time.

                Sunday morning, the staff were 'surly' not rude though. At the reception, the girl asked for $106, when we owed $475! I explained that we owed $475 following an upgrade, it took her more than 10 minutes to sort it out, blaming others for "the error' I was left feeling we inconvenienced her and she certainly showed displeasure. At the petrol bowser, which didn't work! the assistant insisted 'but is shows $68', we had not yet put petrol in and I kept telling her this and asking her to re-set the bowser and switch it on, all I kept hearing was but here is shows $68! If I didn't need petrol I would have walked out! We finally got petrol, but she seemed convinced we owed an extra $68. The guy in information was equally unhelpful when we asked for survey maps, he insisted that the Pound walks were marked every 200M. We should be able to navigate the pound with the map given from reception. We didn't get lost, but were unable to see markers or signs every 200M! Despite this we had a great weekend and my friend from America also enjoyed the weekend, but did comment on the lack of direction on the walks and the grumpy staff! Despite this I would certainly recommend a visit to Wilpena Pound. The place is always beautiful and the staff may have just been having a bad day!

                It was near the pound surround by trees and bird and animals. The restaurant was good.

                The beds were poor quality as we're the pillows

                Just loved the location and being in the wilderness. It was really a lovely experience.

                Thought that there could be a wider path outside the front door so that we could put our chairs outside and enjoy nature as opposed to being cooped up inside. Also the price of the tours i.e. $180 for a half day trip is seriously rediculous when comparing equal half day trips in other parts of the world. We intended to go on one but didn't when we heard the price.

                Good facilities, good food, beautiful location. Convenient services. The Old Homestead was a great tour. The gorges were worth investigating, despite the gale and 35 degree heat. (It gets hotter, I know.)

                The gale and 35 degree heat. But that's the risk you take.

                We liked the accessibility of gorgeous walks and photography opportunities. The arts show at the woodshed was a wonderful bonus. The challenge of the climbs then being ble to come back to the comfort of great accommodation made the experience so much more relaxing. The food and service were excellent.

                Noise between rooms, shower was filthy.we were charged by the resort after paying you online.

                very friendly

                Everything you needed was there on the spot. Terry, the tour guide was fantastic, very knowledgeable about the area and made the afternoon wonderful.

                centrally located to explore the Flinders Ranges and have a choice of walking tracks. The food was very good and the staff were helpful.

                I did not like the use of air fresheners in the room as I am an Asthma sufferer. A copy of the menu of the restaurant in the room would have been handy.

                Lovely setting. We stayed in a unit with a kitchen so we could cook our own meals. The unit was excellent and very modern.

                I do wish Australia would take more care in the quality of the bed mattress as the room had 3 beds and all very hard!

                The resort had a great feel about it with the staff contributing a great deal to the "feel good" atmosphere. We ate in the restaurant which served delicious food. A four wheel drive tour, " Passage Through Time," was cabaply led and a sensational experience. Organisation was great and plenty of advice on offer. Highly recommended. Marg

                It was a wonderful stay, very relaxing being able to walk every where and see all the animals content and not rushing away from us. Have recommended Wilpena Pound Resort to heaps of our friends. And my husband and I will definately be back. Absolutely loved it.
