Allocated room 138 at the hotel. The room was amply big enough with two beds and ensuite containing what appeared to be a bath/shower you would normally find on a boat, the bath being three-quarter sized although alright for a shower. My only gripe was that the air conditioning under made a noise like a top loader washing machine constantly...

Simple rooms in a four bed dorm for $125 ( approx $30 each!) . The room was clean, the amenities only 20 metres walk from the room. Towels supplied and a nice pool to swim.

The rooms were nice and modern, and the location is really beautiful. Down the road is Kinds Canyon itself which is stunning and one of the best natural attractions in the NT. The only let down were the restaurants. The food was terrible (and often simply not what it claimed to be on the menu), the service seemed... inexperienced, and...

Very nice area. The hotel is overpriced, but it is the only option near Kings Canyon. It has seen better days and does no longer satisfy the customer. The restaurant was ok but expensive for an average meal.

A motel style hotel with parking in front of the door. This is the middle of nowhere, so there is not much choice if one intends to visit Kings Canyon. Room with 2 large beds and a terrace. Difficult to cool the room in daytime. There is a bar, a restaurant and a shop opposite the hotel.

The spa rooms are great with an amazing outlook over rocky small cliffs. The view alone makes up for a small aging issues. Decor is a bit dated but clean and tidy. Sukin products were a nice touch. Nice pool area but a long ish walk from the spa rooms. Not surprisingly food is pretty expensive and limited but you...

We stayed three nights at the Kings Canyon Resort, and we loved every minute of it. Firstly, the setting is stunning. It really is in the middle of nowhere, with small red earth hills just outside your window (the biggest window being next to the spa bath - what a view!).
