Good hotel, stayed 2 nights. Reported that we saw the range hood switch was burned out when we got into the room and nothing done about it during our stay. Limited cooking and room layout awkward. Microwave hard to use as it was mounted awkwardly. A good walk from the town but on a limited bus route. Better if you... More

Clean and comfortable but very, very small rooms. Adequate , budget family accommodation but nothing more. About a 10 minute drive out of town opposite the Todd River so a pretty convenient location if you have a car. Free wifi but very slow.

Stayed here either side of a tour to Uluru and kings canyon with red rock tours. The accommodation was perfect for what we needed. Clean, friendly, and spacious. We were in a free standing unit. Each one had a queen and single bed, kitchenette and ensuite. Early morning starts by travelers disturb the peace, but when waiting for ours, I... More

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights in June. We had a hire car from the airport. The hotel was easy to find, the staff was helpful on arrival and during our stay. The room was a little tired but generally clean. It had a kitchenette which was suitable for making our own breakfast. The air conditioner worked... More

Rooms and bedding were comfortable, nice little verandah. Only a couple of issues, one was there was no room service on a Sunday, while we could live with that, when we asked for more towels, they had only three left, we needed four, so they gave us a pool towel instead. When they did do the room service, my eight... More

We arrived without notice at all, after 4 days crossing the desert. The staff were outstanding in accommodating both families travelling. Very clean, comfortable cabins and exceptional value for money. Great ensuite and very clean too. Close to shops to restock for the continued journey and to buy dinner after a long day. Our family of four slept wonderfully and... More

Desert Palms is a great place to stay. The basic amenities are most adequate for the price and the staff are helpful. For families the kitchen works very well with suitable utensils and outdoor, undercover BBQ. Very good value. We have had 3 stays at Desert Palms.
