We were surprised to hear on the grapevine that Home Valley Station had reopened. The lovely girl at reception informed us that management had spent 18 months bringing it up to scratch. We found that the powered caravan site we were allocated was an expensive dust bowl. The toilet/shower facilities were not clean. In fact some parts of the toilets and showers had not been touched for over 18 months. Bins were left overflowing. The management of these areas needs to be looked at urgently. We went to have dinner at the restaurant which was barely a third full. We did not have a reservation and the staff member said they were very busy and he was basically doing us a favour by putting us outside on a tiny table among the mosquitos. After about 15 minutes a very courteous staff member asked us if we would like to sit inside to which we replied yes please, and she kindly found us a table.The meal was expensive for what we had ordered and of an average standard. The restaurant was still a third full when left. I had been planning our Kimberley trip for several years and had always looked forward to going to HVS. Overall our experience at HVS was disappointing and we would not return.
Does not live up to the hype
The station does not give you anything extra than the other sites in the area. It is expensive for a powered site, indeed any site, and for what? An unlicensed bar, small sites, aging toilet facilities, and next to no activities. The staff are pleasant enough, but do not use the videos of youtube as a guide, these are misleading, will not return.
Lovely stay on the Gibb
The staff were lovely and we couldn’t be made more welcome (apart from one staff member who was very anti dogs). There were some things we found to be unacceptable … $20 per dog per night ( we have 2) was a bit much. A difference of opinion between manager who said we could have our dogs by the outside table and one of the food & beverage staff who said the manager was wrong and we couldn’t 🤔 cost of a lowered sight was $36 per adult per night so all up a very expensive stay for us. Throughout WA & NT washing machines ranger between $3 & $5 per load … HV8 charged $7 per with new front load machines delivered during our stay. The positives were the staff (great chef ), Niki , Amy and Laila in particular were terrific. The facilities and the location great 💕
Stunning Home Valley Station
We stayed 4 nights in the Grass Castle Room Everything was just out of this world The food unbelievable yummy " First Class" The staff so helpful and friendly We done a few walking trails just amazing and the Helicopter Sun Set Flight was fantastic Overall we loved everything
Wide variety of accommodation options off Gibb River Road
We stayed 2 nights in a Grass Castle room. It was fabulous. Hadn't expected accommodation of this standard on our trip. We spent the day chilling on the deck and using the pool. A welcome break from the corrugated roads. Only down side was food was rather overpriced for what it was.
