We loved our stay at Kingfisher! The whole area is amazing and all the staff was very friendly and helpful. We also liked the walks that were available from the resort. Possible improvements include: 1. The extractor fan in the bathroom with spa was not strong enough to prevent excessive condensation in the bathroom. 2. Signs on some of the walking trails need updating and the map needs to better reflect the actual pathway. Distance measurements on these signs would also be helpful, especially on the Lake McKenzie walk.

The Kingfisher resort staff where super helpful, polite and happy.. our only problem was that there was a jackhammer going constantly in a unit near us over the long weekend... apparently an owner doing his own renovation ...im sure the 7 am start on Saturday is within the noise by council but maybe not in such a tight confine on a busy holiday weekend.. peace and tranquility only achieved by leaving the unit early and returning after 5...
