Beautiful setting in Uluru
Reviewed 2 days ago

this is a magical experience to see Ayres Rock and the beautiful national park. Sunrise walk with SEIT tours around Ayres Rock was amazing. The Sounds of Silence dinner was awesome and more than we expected. Being under the stars was so cool and the presentation of the constellations was so well done.. Highly recommend .....

Very good

Stayed here for 2 nights on AAT Kings tour and it was very nice. Clean and tidy with so much to do in the surrounding area. The start of a great holiday. Restaurant on site or more close by. Short walk to town square

Better than expected

Here in the middle of nowhere, nearly 500k from the nearest town ,Alice Springs, is a very good hotel. Rooms are spacious, clean, and very comfortable and located in what is now almost a small country town. The pool is great and there are plenty of cafe's and restaurants to choose from. All staff are pleasant and helpful.

We travel overseas every year and are familiar with all the good hotel chains, Depending on your room I would easily give this place a 3.5 star rating. The gardens with beautiful ghost gums is worth a photo or two or three.

Big rooms with a view of Uuru

Very nice hotel in the middle of nowhere! I have to say I was pleasantly surprised at how nice the room was. As we were walking through the property to get to the room I was not sure what to expect. The main desk area and restaurants are very nice; looks like they've been renovated recently. The property, however, could use some work. The room was much nicer than what the property implies. The room has been renovated, although the bathroom could use a bit more updating. They had a good selection at the breakfast buffet. Not all rooms have a view of Uluru (partial because of trees and bushes) so make sure you ask for one. Other rooms have typical pool, lawn or walkway views. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Easy walking to town and great

location to Uluru. The pool area is very nice, giant lawn right by the pool. The restaurants at the hotel have very limited menus.
Rooms are modern with the TV playing about the area when you arrive.
Close to town and Uluru.
