A good location to visit but the resort is not
The accommodation could be better by having an upgrade. Door in our unit doesn't lock properly; linen/towels didn't get replaced not until you've asked.Neither it was clean at all. One of our friends tv doesn't even work. For the rate they charged, service could be better. I would say it's overprice given to nil customer service.

Amazing scenery
Wilpena Pound is an amazing place to explore. The resort is a bit tired but clean and comfortable. Our flight to Lake Eyre and over Wilpena was breathtaking.

Good value & worth the stay
I did enjoy it. I do feel the rooms need an overhaul - door knob difficult in my unit, some cracked paint work in the bathroom, dead insects behind the TV cabinet. Staff so helpful. Evelyn in dining was exceptional, having to do most of the work because the younger girl (Mikayla) helping really had no idea on the ordering side of things. However, she was excellent on the waitressing side of things. Check in & out ladies great. Excellent menu.

Units were spacious , clean and comfortable. Staff were friendly and gave plenty of information and tips on things to do. Food was an interesting mix but what we had was very tasty including the crocodile. A clear night gives an amazing view of more stars than you will ever see in the city.

Fabulous location right at Wilpena Pound. Was very handy having the petrol, IGA & visitors centre at the property. I was looking forward to using the pool as it was really hot, but it was closed when I arrived & was closed for my stay which was really disappointing. The room was nice & big, but it was easy to hear neighbours also staying.

having been here in my own tent of various sizes over the years and having stayed at the 4person tent not to confuse with the new glamping tents. this motel room was great and good for overnight or two. however not as cheap as the camping. thumbs up from me. i did take a look whilst i was here at the glamping tents as we bumped into a friend who was staying but after would not bother in future and still take a motel room instead.

The property has enough amenities including a proper fridge. But need to have more information regarding the area. The maps are not clear enough. We went to 4wheel drive tour and got lost somepoint because information not clear enough.

We had a late Check-In. an envelope waited for us with detailed suggestions for day trips and map of the area. The Room that was given to us was very smelly with cooking smell of the previous guests. (Heavy Indian Spice smell that didn't go away even after opening all windows) we found some kids toys under one of the pillows - our first impression was not good ! we asked ourselves whether they have changed the blanket on that bed at all. We didn't have anybody to talk with (as reception is closed after-hours) and we woke up smelly and unhappy. In the morning, after addressing the issues - the receptionist gave us another room (In no time !) which was clean and in good condition - the transition was flawless. So at the end we had good time and enjoyed beautiful Wilpena pound, although there are areas which could definitely be improved with cleanliness of the rooms !

Location excellent. Welcome to Country and DJ for New Year's Eve were both excellent. Restaurant needed more variety. Drink prices a little too high.
