Fabulous hotel. Rooms were big and spacious. Forgot I was in a hotel in the middle of the desert. The rooms were very comfortable. The breakfast in the morning was amazing. Did not get the chance to eat the restaurant food in the evening at the hotel as I did the Uluru Sunset Tour/Australian Barbecue which was totally amazing:) I... More

Really nice and friendly staff, clean toilets and showers, aswell as kitchen (if you want to cook). In the double rooms theres a fridge, kettle and tea/coffee which was perfect for breakfast in bed!! Great bar and restaurant there too, really nice vibe and like i said-i wish we could have stayed longer!

Good basic hotel. Room clean, but a bit worn. Bathroom facilities clean but quite a way from our room (have to walk outside). Check in was very slow, took over 15 minutes - granted we had a trainee - but she should have been supported much better by experienced staff. We were given no information about the hotel or resort... More

We have stayed here 3 times on different occasions. We will Always go back as the atmosphere is good. Service excellent and comfortable rooms. Staff are accomodating, and helpful.the rooms are Clean tidy and central to everything. They also have a common room and a kitchen where you can actually cook your own food too. Also great for backpackers.

I spend 9 nights solo at room No 217 close to the pool. Staff was very helpful and friendly. The problem with noisy air conditioner was immediately solved. Clean linen, clean room, very easy for preparing own food which I shopped at near supermarket. I would definitely recommend this place for a very affordable price. Dawns and sunset were awesome...

On a recent short stay at Uluru we chose to stay at Outback Pioneer. The desk service was outstanding on checkin and checkout. The restaurants (we tried both the "Cook your Own BBQ" and the in house dining) were both excellent and good value. Great choice of beers at the bar! Although nothing is cheap at Uluru this was a...

We needed a roof over our head at an affordable price for the weekend whilst staying in Yulara, and this did the job perfectly! A four (bunk)bed backpacker-style room was all we needed, and the bathroom facilities were close by. The bar/restaurant was good, with live music each night we were there (Sat/Sun), and sold reasonably priced food. The only... More

Hello Taylor222015 It is uncommon to come across rain when visiting Uluru, but it does make for some spectacular sight seeing as Uluru sprouts water falls that cascade down its side. Hope you were still able to make the best of your time here. Thank you for your review. Regards General Manager Outback Pioneer Hotel and Lodge More

My friends and I stayed here one night after camping in the outback for a couple days, so needless to say, it felt very luxurious to have a mattress to sleep on! Our room had two bunk beds, and we opted for the private bathroom, which was totally worth the extra money as we got pretty filthy whilst camping. The... More
