Ayers Rock
Reviewed 3 days ago

We stayed at Outback Pioner Hotel an it was just perfekt. Clean and with big rooms. We are a family of 3 and there was good space for 4 in the room.
We had the most fantastic breakfast we ever eat, it tasted home cooked. Wow
Everybody at the hotel was nice and the service very good. There is a free shuttle buss taking people to the Åmål center.
We will always remember our stay in Ayers Rock.
The Uluru sunrise trip is something we strongly recommended.

Clean, but not what you pay for
Reviewed 6 days ago

This "hotel" is actually a motel with multiple small buildings/groups of room with doors to the rooms on the outside, not a hotel. They are charging hotel prices for motel type rooms. I gave them three stars because it was clean, but if the buildings and rooms were made better, they wouldn't need information in the room that tells you to keep your snacks in the mini fridge so mice don't get in. We actually stuffed a towel across the bottom of the door to the room to try to prevent critters getting in, when if the door actually sealed properly, this wouldn't be a concern. I get it, we're in the wilderness, so the sign in the laundry that says beware of dingoes is expected, but vermin in my room at the prices that are charged here is not expected. We never had any vermin in the room that we saw, but it must happen if they have to put papers in the room that say its possible. On the upside, the shower always had hot water, the air conditioning and heating worked, and they do give you plenty of large, clean towels, including towels for the pool, but no conditioner or lotion in the bathroom, only shampoo and soap. The pool however is not heated and in July, it was freezing cold. Some kids were actually playing a game at the pool and the loser's punishment was staying in the pool for 30 seconds because it was so cold, they couldn't stand it. This is very basic accomodation in the middle of nowhere at a city hotel price. Like I said, its clean, but don't expect much and expect to pay too much for what you get because there are no other options. Make sure to bring plenty of snacks too (and keep them in the mini fridge if necessary) because the pizza and burgers we had at Outback Pioneer were overpriced and just plain awful.

Very comnfortable and friendly staff
Reviewed 6 days ago

We had a comfortable room looking over the road to the highway. It was not noisy. The staff were very helpful and we enjoyed our dinner in the restaurant which was buffet. The breakfasts there were substantial. The home made baked beans were delicious. The shuttle bus around the resrorst was vey convenient.

Expensive Basic Accommodation
Reviewed 1 week ago

We stayed for 3 nights & paid $975 with no breakfast provisions. Rooms had basic furnishings & were clean. We were thankful for the hot showers. Room amenities included a fridge, tea & coffee provisions, iron & toiletries.

Basic accommodation at 5-star price.

Uluru stay
Reviewed 1 week ago

3 night stay while visiting Uluru, good size room with double and single beds, basic finishing but clean.
Bar and outside eating areas feel and look more for backpackers
All meals extra, there are better hotels on resort and with the town centre nearby I would recommend evening meals there if you want something better than buffet or pizzas
