As you can see from the title, I only gave 4/5 because as a woman, I loathe insects/spiders and all living beings that are crawling or jumping on me at night outdoors while I less expect it. Now getting into the review of the hotel: it is such a great place and offers so much to do. The staff at...

Stayed for 1 night would recommend staying for longer. I stayed in winter and it was pretty cold, but the room was well heated. I did notice a swimming pool in the hotel grounds. The room was clean and had good facilities. The hotel bar had a band playing on the Saturday night. Great bus pick up and drop off...

Stayed at this place for 2 nights. There is nothing wrong with it - friendly staff, clean and nicely air conditioned rooms, nice common areas, swimming pool, location in the centre of Ayers Rock, plenty of free parking spaces - but it is a huge hostel and that makes it quite unpersonal. I prefer smaller ones. But if you are...

Australia can be an expensive place for visitors - especially touristy areas and especially especially touristy places in the middle of nowhere: like uluuruu (Ayers Rock). My wife and I wanted to visit the area and this was the only budget accommodation we could find. The complex is pretty big with a camp ground, proper hotels, and the hostel bunk...

The hotel is in a perfect location, just a short walk across the sand hill to the shopping area. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. Reception is open 24 hours and easy to access. Tours to Ayres Rock available.

This is the best place to stay for the family. We had a unit not far from the pool and the choice of food types was great. We had breakfast included and took dinner at the restaurant and the take out option. The staff were helpful and friendly and the pool amenities were good too.

Hey your choices are limited here. This is not bad and has the basic amenities. No chairs to sit outside though and just bare doors in a wall. Not sure why they wouldn't add this dimension as it would make the experience so much nicer.
