Staff less than helpful. Expensive for condition of property. Public bathroom needed dam good clean! Don't think the pink carpet or tiles had been cleaned in a long time. Sad. Could be a great place. Lovely drive out of perth. So much potential.

The room was well presented and the swimming pool was great. It was mid week and there was no bar, no restaurant not even for breakfast. If fact no one on site after about 6pm. We complained about the lack of service and were upgraded to a pool side room. An evening meal can be obtained about 20kms East at...

El Caballo Resort was a very 'special' place to visit when I was a child. I can still remember the grand buildings and the magnificent horses and spectacular shows and performances, coupled with beautiful grounds and surroundings. I am now 59 and looked eagerly to a Christmas function held at the resort to rekindle old memories. NOT!! Whilst we intended...

Out dated. Grounds were well below average. Room was musty but warm. Comfy bed. Front staff were uptight. One of the breakfast ladies was awesome the other very sour. Nope I would never go back or recommend.

We recently stayed here for two nights, and we did enjoy it. The staff were very friendly and sorted out our "no hot water" situation on the first night very efficiently and compensated us with a nice bottle of wine at dinner on the second night. The rooms have not updated since reopening, however, they are very comfortable and warm....

I attended the Mother's day lunch and show at the resort and felt exactly the same way as Julant55 below. The large room was very bare with not even one picture on the wall. It had zero ambience. The food was very ordinary - and sitting at one of the last tables to be called up to the buffet didn't...
