Quiet secluded peaceful spot amongst hundreds of campers. Very private, stunning views of the Pound, with comfortable bed and everything you could need. Hot showers after long walks, comfortable bed, warm with howling winds outside, excellent restaurant including al fresco dining enjoying the views and excellent supermarket. Heaven!

2/5 Poor

Travelled with family and small children
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
I liked that it was in the heart of Wilpena Pound and close to many walking trails and places of interest. The a/c worked well and hot water in the shower was always plentiful however i feel like there was too much chlorine in the water because my skin was itchy after every shower. What i didn't like was the service of both reception staff and restaurant staff, it was as if we were a burden on their day. It wouldn't cost anymore for the staff to be friendlier. The room was not clean to begin with. Staff warned us that room cleaning may not happen in our stay. Over 5 days we asked for our room to cleaned and all we got was a fresh lot of towels once. The fridge was not working and froze our food, staff didn't seem to care. The beds were extra soft and not comfortable. There was a great IGA nearby but we only had a kettle and cups for coffee. No microwave or toaster. We couldn't utilise the only grassed area in the mornings because the sprinklers were watering the lawn up until 10.30am. For the price of these apartments there is a lot lacking. I would not recommend them. If the cleanliness and service improved it would've scored higher and made our trip much more enjoyable. A microwave would've been great as well as basic cutlery and plates.
