I enjoyed our stay at Desert Gardens Hotel. The staff were very friendly & the resort has a lot to offer. The sunset viewing point is awesome. The only issue we had was the late room clean approx 4pm, considering we were up at 5am everyday for sunsets, it would be nicer if the rooms were cleaned earlier.

We were amazed by the beauty of the outback and the fantastic facilities and ambience of the Desert Gardens Hotel. The food was world class, the service was exemplary, the rooms were great and the hotel's other facilities were modern, functional and easy to find and to utilize. The Sound of Silence Dinner was something that could only be experienced... More

I stayed here as part of an AAT Kings tour of Uluru and it was a great place to stay. The rooms was nice and the property is lovely and shady. The staff were friendly and helpful. I hope to stay longer next time so I can make use of the pool and spa!

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

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.
