Stayed here for 3 nights in a deluxe rock view room. Room was very spacious with 2 double beds and a nice sized bathroom - it really does look like the hotel's website. Had a great view of Uluru so it's worth the extra to get a rock view room as you can't see the rock from the ground floor... More

I've been here only once but it is like the peek end rule, just amazing. Visited Uluru from here on a very Cold morning but that didn't care. Also went from here to the Kings Canyon, lots of flies though, beware! Restaurants on site are good, however no Michelin star. Stayed for 3 days and had fairly good weather. Our... More

At arrival very friendly staff who appointed our room, it was quick and easy check in, despite a full busload of toerists. We had room 409 , a little at the back of the resort( we didn't mind) but very nice big rooms, it was clean en very comfortable. One king and queen size bed, enough room for all your... More

Had a great time at the rock, it is even more breath taking once you are at the base. Hotel was great, great service, but could be priced better too attract more families. grounds were well maintained, more landscaping is required out the back of the roadside rooms. Other than that had a fantastic experience.

We had one of their best rooms. The accommodation was above average motel standard, but costs $300-400 a night. The breakfast includes a buffet and a dedicated egg station. If one wants eggs made, one fills in a menu request form, which has a section for filling in dietary requirements. I requested a scrambled egg without milk, being lactose intolerant.... More

Hotel is managed by Accor group. Rooms are distributed in one-two storey high buildings. Big territory with a lot of greenery. Room is much bigger than average 4 star hotel. On the other hand, amenities are average and safe box, slippers and bathrobes are missing which I think should be in the room. All standard rooms have twin beds, but... More

We stayed one night as part of a tour group and were pleasantly surprised. The staff was gracious and helpful, the room was very comfortable, the grounds were delightful - considering we were in the heart of the Outback - and the food was very good. They delivered more than we expected. It is a short walk to a small... More

It was nice to arrive at Uluru and be advised we had been up-graded to a "Deluxe" room. However, I would have thought what we got was a fairly standard room, with 2 queen sized beds. I think the "upgrade" story was to make us feel good! Having said that, the hotel is quite nice. Rooms are a good size,... More

Stayed in a deluxe room, 2 doubles, clean, great buffet breakfast, obviously everything is expensive as you are in central Australia! Pool was undergoing repairs so you had to go to the swimming pool at Sails, also had a free laundry for guests which was very handy. Found Geckos Cafe in the Town Square the best to eat (with kids)... More

Paid for deluxe rooms and were allocated one large ground floor and 1 upper floor with Uluru view (hence the review title !). I agree with other reviews that the resort is expensive but the really is little choice, voyages have the area sewn up. Found breakfast frustrating after other hotels earlier in our trip. 1st morning we waited 15... More
