          Great location to see the West Macdonnell ranges. Lovely service. We camped and had a huge site (which we needed). Nathan should get employee of the month as he was excellent. One young lady employee was a bit rude but otherwise it was tops

          While the hotel is pretty rustic/basic, it's still in an amazing spot. I'd stay here again, and the food in the restaurant was surprisingly amazing! The staff excellent too. Highly recommend doing the scenic helicopter flight over the gorge.
