We didn't book this hotel ourselves, it was part of our tour and it didn't disappoint! We had a Deluxe Spa room which was lovely, but sadly we didn't have enough time to pamper ourselves, as we were only staying for One night and arrived late. The restaurant was lovely serving delicious food, so all in all a good choice.

We stayed here for the second time in 12 years over the October school holidays. Nothing has changed since 2004. In fact the property is overdue a facelift. Especially when they are charging over $500 per night for a deluxe twin double or single king. We were greeted on the first afternoon of our 2 night stay by a dank...

You go to Kings Canyon for the Valley and Rim walks, but find the Resort a great place to stay. The spa with its outlook on to the desert is a fantastic place to soak the weary leg muscles after the challenging walk around the rim and its' side tracks.

Stayed in a Spa Room for two nights, primarily to visit the canyon. The room was great; spacious, clean, good beds and in a very peaceful setting. Good food at Carmichael's Restaurant and great coffee at the bistro.

Absolutely loved Kings Canyon from the sunset to the sunrise and walking the rim walk. Fantastic place and the accommodation was great as well. Could not fault anything. But I would not recommend taking the chopper ride if you walk the rim as it is not necessary. You see it all pretty much from the top anyway but for anyone...
