"Arrived and our room was not ready after 2pm as advertised."
This place was a complete let down. The owners of this place only care about $$$$. So prepare to keep putting your hand in your pocket for something that is not worth it. Firstly for myself, the food was a complete disgrace. Secondly all the hot spots you will need either 4WD or to go on a tour (which is over priced for something you can do solo). As hire cars are not allowed off road. For me coming to a place like this, I want to know that it's getting looked after by the owners how it should be considering the special place that it is in Australia. As I've been brought up in life is that you treat people who you want to be treated. So I hope the owners take a leaf out of my book, start doing the right thing by the workers, the hotel and park lands and the people (travellers) who are keeping that place alive. Get a reality check before people start to realise that this place is only a money making venture, then a place that you actually care about. Another thing is to not waste top dollar on the "glamping" as it isn't worth a cold pie!
"Needs a lot of work"
We stayed in Suite 58 - one of the 'luxury Heysen Suites' with the luxury price of $310 per night. Sadly the name is where the luxury stopped. I wrote a detailed letter to management - they chose not to acknoweldge or respond to the issues I raised so I guess its only fair to warn fellow travellers. Our suite was quite dirty, blankets were faded and marked - looked awful and made you feel like you did not want to touch them - same with the bedspread on the queen bed. The air con unit must have been replaced and there was a nice hole in the wall where the other unit went. The four dining chairs had massive splits in the seat from one side to the other - and there was some unidentifiable goo on the bathroom floor. I certainly expect more when I am paying top dollar. Service at reception was terrible on booking in and then check in. Restaurant meals were ok. Service was hit and miss. This is a stunning part of our beautiful country and I feel that the resort knows it has a captured audience and they have just given up - the motto appears to be " you want to stay - then you will pay" and no regard to service or guest comfort. Particularly poor form that management chose not to respond - that was just plain rude. I guess its up to you the traveller and your expectations... we were very disappointed. This place has a lot of potential that is not being utilised. They really need to lift their game.
"Way to expensive to what they offer"
Ok, this is in a national park and you have no other option. But even with this monopoly, I do expect to have at very least a clean room. 233 AUD per night is way to expensive. No WLAN at all. Average food in the restaurant. I would definitely come back because of the wonderful location. But I would as well avoid this resort, if I could ... or at least expect to be charged 50% less.
We've stayed at the safari tents before and while we didn't feel they were excellent value for money, it was enough of a unique experience to return for a longer stay 18months later. On this trip we were very disappointed in both service and value for money - we paid $330 per night for quite shabby accomm and poor service. The paint in the bathroom was peeling and the bathroom and tent furniture had seen better days. The tent had a kettle (including dead ants and bugs in the kettle) and cups, but no plunger for the espresso coffee packet and no cutlery to make tea/ coffee with. Daily room cleaning was disappointing - towels were replaced but bed wasn't remade properly and tea/ coffee/ milk supplies were not replenished. A highlight of our last visit was breakfast daily in the 'mess tent' adjacent to the safari tents. No longer on offer, served instead in the dining room. Gorgeous surroundings but a good experience let down by being seriously overpriced. We'd have no complaints if the rate we paid reflected what was actually on offer.
Lucky enough to stay in one of the Safari tents. Lovely to wake up surrounded by nature, while enjoying a level of comfort, glamping style!! Lots of great walks and food available in the restaurant was enjoyed, particularly the buffet breakfasts. Agree though that the resort is looking a little tired and requires refurbishment. Cleanliness standards were also very average, toilet and fridge needed cleaning, pillow missing on bed, no face washes or bath mat in ensuite bathroom in our tent. Pathways needed sweeping off to remove all the kangaroo doo etc and general maintenance across the resort is required. This is such a lovely slice of SA and it would be a shame to deter international guests from visiting. A review of management practices, staff training and customer service is required overall. Still loved every minute of it though and my favourite was the "Welcome to Country" delivered by Terrence on the front lawn.
