Desert Gardens was simply wonderful. The staff are extremely nice and very helpful. The breakfast each morning is fulfilling and delicious . We were given an upgrade ( thank you ) on arrival and the room was just fine. Yes it's a little dated ( especially the bathroom ) , but it was very clean and had a great view... More

My son and I travelled to Ayers Rock in May 2015 for my 50th Birthday. We had a great time and weather was perfect. The hotel although looked a bit tired, was fantastic, the staff were very helpful and we had everything that was requried. The hotel is central to everything and it's only a short walk to the Town...

We arrived on an early flight and expected a wait to check in to our room, but luckily our rock view room was ready for us immediately. We also received free Wi-Fi as gold members of Accor A-Club. The room itself was spacious, with a comfortable bed, but the balcony needed a good clean. We also had a problem with... More

Check in was fast, friendly and efficient. If your room is a long way from reception, ensure you make use of the luggage service. Simon met us at our car and took us and our suitcases in his golf buggy type vehicle to our room. What a lovely guy. We also arranged for our suitcases to be collected on departure.... More

Recently stayed for two nights at the Desert Gardens Hotel at Ayer's Rock. The complementary airport coach transfers were efficient and prompt. Patricia at reception, checked me into the hotel, with excellent customer service. I think I was upgraded to a second floor room, because I showed my Accor Advantage Plus card. The room was not 4 star, by capital... More

Our room had a gorgeous view of Uluru, the room was spacious and clean. The staff could not have been more helpful. The restaurant was unexpectedly fantastic, we decided to eat there every night of our 3 days. Breakfast was included and had a huge selection to choose from. Waiters and staff were brilliant. The restaurant never felt cramped or... More

I booked a disabled room via Northern Territories Discoveries and SPECIFICALLY asked for a room with either 2 double beds or a queen bed. NTD checked for me and told me that 2 double beds were confirmed. I went ahead and booked. On arrival and checking our room, we found there was only 1 double bed. We asked for a... More

I stayed here on my own in April 2015 while visiting Uluru and the national park. The hotel was kept clean and the staff more than happy to help. The rooms are large and spacious, I was a lone traveller however there would have been little trouble in fitting a family of four in the room. My room rate included... More
