We didn't know what to expect our accommodation to be like in Uluru. Desert Gardens was lovely and very well organised and our room was clean and very accommodating, comfortable beds, decent size bathroom, small balcony to seat and enjoy a drink in the afternoon...More
All the staff were friendly and helpful, we found it very comfortable and at full rate it would be pricey. The surrounding restaurants like gecko's were great with friendly staff + our one meal at the main DG restaurant was fantastic!! Thanks to all at...More
Being in the outbacks there isnt much to do once your in Ayers Rock. The 5 hotels in Ayers Rock are all situated in the same area. Voyages Dessert Garden is centrally located and has the small town centre and restaurants behind it. This made...More
I have to be generous here, because they could've charged me for checking out early, but they generously didn't. And to their credit, the air conditioning was fixed within 24 hours....on only the third call. 33C is a bad place to be, three to a...More

Basic amenities, but well managed by friendly staff. The rooms were neat and tidy, the restaurant and bar staff were friendly and attentive.
We had an upstairs "rock view" room,which meant we could see Uluru from our balcony.
Bearing in mind the location, we thought...More

Go to the central information hub where the rangers are and they will tell you there is their local ranger that does guided information filled walks from 8am. I found this is exactly when the flies come out so my sister and I took off at 5:30 and walked the opposite way as to what is recommended around the base of Uluru and read all of the information posts along the way. We packed a back pack with water and some fruit but managed to do the walk in 2.5 hrs instead of three and we are not fit people. You can then team up with the guided walk after your own walk around the base as the guided walk is short and only a part of the base walk. Sunrise and sunset are best viewed from the viewing stations that are clearly marked out along the main road. Everything is on the one main road or on the circle where the hotels are. I was happily surprised to find how easy navigating was here. If you do long drives be sure to lock your doors as we stopped for what looked like a family with a broken down car but turned out to be a group of aboriginals trying to suss our what we had in our car.
Hope this helps!
