Great location convenient for tours and coffee shop. Rooms were comfortable and service was very good. At checkout , we were charged $50 for “late check out” after being told we could check out late for an afternoon flight. Denny at front desk was not very courteous nor groomed to be on the front line of a reception desk.

Leigh M TripAdvisor review

This was our 2nd choice hotel and so happy it was as experiencing other hotels close by, this is now absolutely 1st choice. Accommodation in hotels all pretty similar externally. Super comfy super king bed. Bonus balcony view of Uluru ( 1st choice 5* doesn’t have this) The best restaurant/bar for casual dining and buffet breakfast could not be better! Everything you could possibly eat and perfectly cooked and presented. If warm enough, lovely little pool. Main stop for the shuttle bus around the resort every 20 minutes. Perfect in every way!

Thank you for your fantastic review! We're thrilled to be your top choice and glad you enjoyed the super king bed, balcony view of Uluru, and our restaurant. We look forward to welcoming you back soon!

A place to stay in the middle of the outback

We were only there for one night so we weren't able to use the swimming pool and any other amenities at this hotel. The room was clean and comfortable. Extra fluffy bath towels. There was a nice breakfast buffet and the staff was friendly and accomodating

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

Great place to stay

Clean and tidy rooms and grounds. Lovely restaurant and Bar with great service and delicious food. The hotel and whole area is card only. There are very limited options for food and shopping it’s very much small town feel. The only thing that let down this hotel was the front desk staff who where not very helpful and at time the manager was extremely rude. Lucky the rest of the team made up for Amanda’s terrible and poor customer service.

Thank you for your feedback. We're glad to hear you enjoyed the clean rooms, lovely restaurant, and great service. We apologise for your experience with our front desk staff. Your comments will help us improve. We appreciate your feedback and hope to welcome you back for an improved visit in the future.

Not many options locally, so probably the best mid-priced hotel

LOCATION Ayers Rock resort all appears to be run by one chain, irrespective of which facility you opt for. It is 7k from the airport and 24k to Uluru itself. ROOM We had a Garden View room, with two double beds. The room was reasonably furnished with the expected facilities including tea and coffee making, a fridge, an iron and ironing board, and a room safe. FACILITIES+ The guest laundry was very useful. We had a decent fish and chips lunch at the Outback Kiosk, and a pricey evening meal at the Mangata Bistro. We didn’t use the pool, as it was so uncomfortably hot outside. STAFF I didn’t sense a great amount of happiness from the staff, either in housekeeping, the restaurant or on reception.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. We hope you enjoyed your time at Ayers Rock Resort.
