More than happy with stay here
Reviewed 1 week ago

We booked this through travel company in UK so am not sure of the price exactly but it is one of the cheaper options in the area. Our room was by the swimming pool which was nice to relax by (not in as it was winter and the water was not very warm!). I had booked trips online before leaving UK (through Viatour) and there had been a mistake with the dates which was very quickly sorted out by the helpful/friendly staff at check in. The rooms were fine - we didn't spend much time in the room anyway as there was so much to see/fit in over the 3 nights there. I would happily stay there again if I were ever in the area again. I have selected budget for the price range as it is budget for the region.

Great place to stay
Reviewed 1 week ago

Myself and my mum have stayed here before and the customer service is still excellent even though this is probably one of the cheaper hotels on site. We love it here as it is laid back, has a great and yummy takeaway and breakfast is good (pay for this at reception as a lot cheaper). There is a pool and in our opinion the best gift shop of all the hotels. There is a free shuttle bus that will take you to the other hotels, the camel farm and town square which runs every 15/20 mins and you can use the other hotels facilities. The rooms need some maintenance but overall are clean and would stay again

Outback Pioneer Hotel
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Convenient location within resort. Comfortable clean and well stocked rooms. Nice pool and plenty of eating options in hotel and within resort. Meal quality on mains and starters were reasonably good. Desserts a bit weak.A bit short on parking spaces and this was off season. Housekeeping only came around in mid afternoon (when most people are back from outdoor hikes and taking shelter in the rooms!). Rooms a bit pricey but you've limited choices. Although supposedly affiliated to Accor, reception at check-in desk are unable to confirm if room payment has been done previously (despite email confirmation from Accor), so new payment was required.

What you'd expect from a hostel
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

This was the cheapest accommodation closest to uluru other than the campground so you get what you pay for. Typical shared accommodation with shared bathrooms. Prepare to pay more if you intend on eating there. The lodge does offer alot of free activities and airport transfers that are very convenient. The staff was very friendly and helpful as well. The rooms were air conditioned as well which out there in that heat was a big plus! Same with the pool!

Very, very average but expensive hostel
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

Very average rooms, toilet and bathroom ok too but don't expect anything too fancy - just a basic but pricey hostel in the middle of nowhere but the choice is really limited :-). We stayed there in March 2017, there was a lot going on at nights - live music etc. so made the stay more enjoyable. The only major issue was when we went hiking around Uluru and the cleaning staff left our room unlocked and the door open for the whole day!!! We only found out when we got there in the evening. Fortunately, nothing was stolen... When we complained to the manager, we were offer a free breakfast for the trouble but if something had been stolen or disappeared, that wouldn't be enough for sure. Yet, as the choice is really limited, I would probably stay there again if I ever visited Uluru again.
