Great holiday - great service

TripAdvisor rating 5.0/5

Geoff M TripAdvisor review

First time to Uluṟu and long overdue.the experience could hardly have been better. The amenities at Desert Gardens are superb especially the gardens themselves which are a delight to walk through . Staff were extremely helpful, courteous and friendly. Our room was great - comfy beds, extremely clean and as a bonus - a view of the rock from the balcony. All our pickups, bookings, etc were spot on with clear signs and helpful staff. Highly recommended.

One of the best short holidays ever

Elizabeth C TripAdvisor review

Warm welcome on arrival, Comfortable, clean well serviced accommodation. Informative free talks given by local people. Learned a lot about aboriginal legends, tools and hunting techniques. All day tour to Ayres Rock and the Olgas plus the delicious sunset BBQ made the holiday memorable. It was also a perfect time weather-wise . Not too hot or too cold.. 4 days/3 nights is enough time to see and do everything.

A real birthday treat in the Outback!

Sally K TripAdvisor review

I traveled with my brother as a birthday treat. We booked one of the rock view rooms of Uluru. And loved it! Waking up to that view and having a private terrace was perfect for us. Large twin beds that are super comfy. Spacious bed and bathroom areas. Quality shampoo, conditioner, shower gel and body lotion so no need to take your own products. We used the in-room fridge to keep a few beers + snacks cool. Celebratory birthday dinner at the hotel's fine dining restaurant grill, delicious rib eye steak. Loved the sunrise Segway tour of Uluru. And kept prices down by booking the Hop on Hop off bus for our sunset trip to Kata Tjuta. Such a relaxing place to visit, a reminder of how healing it is just being in nature. With family. Watching a sunrise and set. Thank you

How important is Wi-Fi anyway?

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

kansasrod TripAdvisor review

They handle a constant flow of groups quite professionally. Wi-Fi simply did not work in room 110. But works well in the lobby. Great breakfast. If you are here you don’t expect inexpensive. Examples: IGA grocery nearby we paid $6.80 for 250 grams of butter; $9.20 for 210 grams of cheese; $5.67 for a loaf of sourdough bread. So check your budget before booking.
