"Even the staff are in holiday mode"
Flinders ranges is a magical place and we will definitely return. However, Wilpena Pound resort did not live up to our expectations and was a real let down. Our safari tent was simply not serviced at all before or during our stay. This is the tent for which they charge $320 per night during off season! The reason given - housekeeping knocked off early today, sorry. Manager also knocked off early and there is no one in charge. There are limited options of this kind of accommodation in the area and they know it, so the staff just don't care. The restaurant was great and the scenic flight over the Pound we took was 10/10.
"Australia Day week at the Outback"
We stayed at a Safari tent at this resort and it was a cool experience. The price was also decent during the off peak season (setting aside the downside of several hikes being off limits). The tent and the resort are generally clean and tidy although I found I had to wash the glasses in the tent again as they were not 100% clean. Also ATM machine was broken and so was one of the TVs in the bar, nothing major. The breakfast was the standard continental breakfast. We found the Angus beef burger to be delicious. During this time of the year all other suggested hotels in "nearby" towns such as Hawker and Parachilna are actually closed for the off season - unfortunately we found this out the hard way after driving from Wilpena Pound Resort to Parachilna and then to Hawker looking for food (approx 200km). The Old Ghan was opened in Hawker but it was awful. Would recommend just eating at the resort as the food there is decent. The road from Blinman to Parachilna was unsealed and through a gorge so you absolutely need a 4WD to get through. Luckily we had one. It would have been nice to have these sorts of information made clear at the reception or visitor's centre, in fact we didn't find the visitor centre helpful - they seemed unmotivated. Tourists need to be well informed in such a remote area. The staff working in Podgy Dodgers are super friendly though, Marlene especially was fantastic.
"Possibly the worst place we have stayed in Australia"
A very disappointing hotel set in a wonderful place. The whole resort comes across as unloved and very tired and in urgent need of renovation. The toilet roll holder in our bathroom was broken and the shower drain was blocked with weeks worth of other guests body hair - ugh. In addition the food is expensive but not great. Would definitely not return. We originally planned to stay for 4 nights but left after 2.
"5 days enjoying lovely resort"
We spent 5 days here in September and the staff couldn't have been more accomodating if they tried. Wonderful selection of food at breakfast (hot, cold healthy and not healthy!!) and evening meals to cater to differing budgets with reasonable prices given the remoteness of location. The rooms were clean and tidy and comfortable with great storage for all of our walking gear. The trails around the resort were great access especially as we had a 2 year old with us (who managed the trail to see the amazing views over the pound). If you're looking for a conventional "resort" you won't find it here, this is more about using all that nature has to offer rather than being entertained. We are really looking forward to returning again soon and have found the staff to be great and very helpful with all of our bookings. They have been really accomodating when we have had to change a booking at last minute and not charged us any cancellation fees or rebooking fees so I certainly feel they're not just about $$ it is more about the customer enjoying the natural beauty of the area.
"Safari Tents are great"
Stayed in the Safari Tents on my last trip to Wilpena, and they were awesome. A bit on the pricey side, but they did come complete with everything you get in a hotel room including power and water. And the views of the Pound each afternoon as the sun sets on the side is absolutely stunning. Will stay again.
