Our room was dirty and dated. Overpriced for 1 room with no outdoor seating. The free Wifi did not work. The fridge was literally falling apart along with the cupboard it sat in. The restaurant was overpriced for the poor\average meals we had. Dinner contained a centimetre of oil on top and the breakfast was tasteless. The location was absolutely beautiful

I have read some other reviews and I have to agree with a lot of what others have written. The rooms are nice but overpriced for what you receive. We had a Heysen room and I have to say I was a little disappointed. I expected that I would have a view due to the price that we paid, and instead, we could just see into the rooms opposite ours. Talking of being able to see into other rooms, there should be net curtains in each room to allow for some privacy. Otherwise, you have to close all the drapes and then you are plunged into darkness. There was no cutlery or plates in our rooms. The cups and to be washed out, and the electric kettle still had water in it from the previous guests. In the restaurant, the food was very nice, but the service lacking due to short staffing, I waited near 5 minutes to ask for some water for our table, and just gave up and I there was no one to serve us at the counter.
Short staffing shows on otherwise great resort
Resort Pros Easy access to walks Better rooms than Rawnsley (recommend Heysen room as Brachina is like a small motel room) Refreshing pool IGA Fantastic scenic flights Resort Cons No room service (there 4 days and had to ask for fresh towels and room to be made) Restaurant overpriced pub food (Woolshed at Rawnsley Station 200% better and cheaper) No emphasis on walking safety - didn't even tell us there was a log book to sign into
Great location, Resort looking tired
Staff very friendly & helpful. Room was fine but in need of a a 'facelift' as looking dated and run down /especially in view of the cost. Restaurant facilities - again lovely setting but could also do with refurbishing. The food was very average. Overall a lovely stay but definitely the resort needs some money spent on it.
Best location in the Flinders but room needed a renovation.
Room was very tired and needs renovation. Bed not comfortable, fridge freezer frosted up but of generous size, room not serviced during 4 night stay. One cake of soap for 4 days! No extra blanket so was cold at night and only one extra pillow. Maybe the COVID excuse! Very small TV by today’s standards. No exhaust fan in bathroom only open louvre window, room smelled damp. Curtain rail was pulled down and could not stop light from bright outside light illuminating room at night. Noisy but reasonable air conditioner but couldn’t sleep with it on. Could be much more…time to spend some money and improve the standard expected. The restaurant has limited selection but disappointing was much of the time it was cold or part thereof. The staff were excellent, very friendly and accommodating. Great place to base your stay for any activity including driving all of the trails.
