We were obviously very excited about visiting Uluru, it being one of the biggest tourist attractions in the world. There are just 5 hotels in the resort and we picked this one. It has a very swanky reception area and very nice staff. The room we had was one with a balcony with a view of Uluru in the distance.... More

We loved arriving here and seeing the welcoming swimming pool! Just what you need in 40 degree sunshine! All the staff are very friendly and helpful and our room had everything we needed for our two night stay. Some very nice shops to browse just a few minutes walk away and a supermarket to pick up any essentials! Everything is... More

OVERVIEW: The view of Uluru (pay the extra for the view) is complemented by the spacious rooms and furnishings. WHAT DO YOU NEED TO KNOW: The view is what it's all about but there are a few other items that you need to know - 1. The restaurant is good but there isn't that much variety (although you are in...

Location perfect! Right in the desert and my room had Ayers Rock view. However I found the hotel extremely overpriced for what it was. I booked a famiky room and we were crammed in a room that you could hardly move around in. We were given a fold up bed that was blocking our access to our veranda door. The... More

Stayed here for 4 nights in February. As we flew in on the 11am flight, our room wasn't ready, however the staff at reception well great in explaining where everything was, and storing out bags and taking details to call us once it was. As it's all one resort, you can wander between each of the hotels and use the... More

We stayed here for 2 nights during a tour of Australia. The room was a good size and clean. Could not comment on the food in the hotel as we were out on trips most of the time. The reception staff were very helpful when checking in. Our room was some way from reception and we got lost once. Watch... More

We spent two nights at the Desert Gardens Hotel. While it is not a spectacular facility, it provided us all of our basic necessities. The room was clean. We had a decent view of the desert. The people working at the front desk and the bell staff do an excellent job under very difficult circumstances. They are also responsible for... More

We visited the Desert Gardens Hotel in February, a very hot time of the year. We had a great time making the Desert Gardens as the home base and taking tours to Uluru and Kata Tjuta... The resort was great, good service, good facilities, and there was a shuttle that went around the resort grounds so that you can get... More

The recently refurbished room was well presented. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The view from the balcony was good and the air conditioners worked very well. There was a fridge and we were able to get provisions from the nearby supermarket which was not that expensive. The swimming pool was obviously old and there was a... More
