Not quite up to expectation

TripAdvisor rating 3.0/5

Wardhogan Families - TripAdvisor review

The room air con sounds like a freight train at full clip measured 68 db in the room, I have a dust might allergy so not only I can’t sleep due to noise my nose is blocking up, to get too room 431 feel like the first hike at Uluṟu is complementary, staff are pleasant but everything is quite expensive definitely Tailored to tourist don’t expect anything to be cheap. Just to visit the rock is 40 bucks on a bus, 76 bucks a pair for park access, yes back to the bucket list , the rock is a magnificent natural wonder and definitely worth the look. If you worked fifo you will appreciate the well laid out hotel.

Great stay. Stayed to celebrate a special birthday. Room fantastic view of Uluṟu from our balcony.

Great view of Uluṟu from balcony, staff accommodating and friendly making a special birthday celebration even more special. Beds comfy and rooms clean. Pool on small side. Handy to shops and cafes. Restaurant at hotel went above and beyond to make birthday dinner special.

2 Double Beds Room

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

mizzbonni TripAdvisor review

We booked a room with 2 double beds which were quite comfortable A seperate large enquite quite modern Room heating was great as it got quite cold at night It was quiet at night We had a good sized fridge Very clean and serviced daily - bath towels changed every other day Expensive to stay but It is Yulara with only a few hotels in the area so there is not many choices It was a short walk to all the shops and dining options and pool A bus shuttle is available if you do not have a car Curtains on sliding glass doors blocked the light out well in the mornings. Cannot fault it really

Thank you for your feedback! We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay with us and we hope to be able to welcome you back one day soon!

Good hotel, expensive breakfast

TripAdvisor rating 3.0/5

WorldTraveller1313 TripAdvisor review

I stayed here recently for 3 nights. The room was a good size, and quiet. The service could have been better, and breakfast was expensive, but they have a captive market. Probably worth considering other accommodation options at Uluru.

Thank you for your feedback. We take all feedback seriously, however we hope that you enjoyed all of the sites that the local area has to offer.

Convenient transportation from the airport to the hotel by providing a limousine. Accommodations, convenience facilities, and tour programs affiliated with Ayers Rock Resort are all connected, so it is very convenient to stay and you can experience a variety of experiences and activities.

Thank you for your feedback! We glad to hear you enjoyed your stay and we hope to welcome you back one day soon!
