First of all the only good thing about this hotel is the room that is it. Now negatives, check in if you can get through the hoards of tourists and guests blocking the main entrance with not only luggage but they are all waiting to...More

Hi Kyung F.
Thank you for your feedback.
I am sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay with us.
Our wonderful staff went out of their way to assist you and it is disappointing that despite all of their efforts it was...More
I visited this hotel as part of a tour. On the whole I found it pleasing with a pleasant layout. The breakfast was good with plenty of choice. However, I found it rather disappointing when the bar closed at 9.30, and they started vacuuming. Surely...More
Fantastic service from all the staff made our stay here. The rooms had just been done up and although we couldn't get the room we wanted as we booked a little late the garden view room was calming and tranquil. Staff couldn't do enough to...More
Not so hot. If you value just the location at $100 a night, and the lack of anywhere else to stay at another $100, the room was almost worth the $430 we paid. But the whole place needs a kick up the jacksy. You shouldn't...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!
