My mum recently stayed here for 3 nights, she enjoyed how close the hotel was to the town square and everything else, she found all the staff very helpful and happy. The tours she did were amazing and she loved learning about the Aboriginal culture. The only downside she felt was that the room was very average for the price...

I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights during my stay to the Uluru area. The rooms was spacious and comfortable however it felt a little dated and probably needed a lick of paint to brighten it up a little. Despite this the rooms was very clean and was turned over daily by the staff. Our view was a disappointment...

This hotel is part of a group of hotels in the area ranging from economical to luxurious. You can get camping, an apartment with kitchen, Pioneer Hotel, Desert Gardens, and then a very nice hotel called Desert Sails. Upon arrival to Desert Gardens (via self drive), we found the staff to be very nice. We were offered a room and...

With a choice of three hotels near Ayers Rock we chose the least expensive one that still was AU$ 249,- including 20% discount for staying three nights.... Nice place to be, big room and bathroom, quiet. Excellent breakfast included. Shops, restaurants and tourist-entertainment all on the grounds. There is no need to pick one of the two (even) more expensive...

Having read some of the previous reviews and seen some photos, I have come to the conclusion that some travellers tend to forget that this complex is set in a working desert in the middle of Australia. As international and national travellers we found the complex and it's associated services not only unique but absolutely exceptional for its location and...

Nice hotel in the desert town of Uluru. Only 4 hotels and this is probably number 2 in rating. Very comfortable and welcoming. Rooms are in blocks and some might be a little distance from Reception. Also, blocks are a bit "tired looking" but that is perhaps to be expected in a desert region with the dust etc in the...

“If you can get a room upstairs (there's no lift) and the room does look out towards the Rock I think it's worth the bit extra”
