Stayed only a day here on out Australia tour. Hotel was described as more of a hostel but I thought it was just fine and dandy. It is. Lean and the cabins are really good. The room we had (216) was spacious, clean had a queen sized bed as well as a single bed. The room was equipped with a...

Travelled with 3 friends and check-in at the Outback Hotel was easy and friendly, and our 2 pre-booked rooms were ready for us so we could settle in on arrival. Each standard ‘hotel’ room with double & single bed and ensuite bathroom was comfortable and adequately equipped, and the air conditioner coped extremely well with the 40 deg heat we...

You get what you pay for in Central Australia and this accommodation for the price is good. I stayed in a hotel room which was very clean, good linen, great towels and plenty of them both for the bathroom and pool, good aircon and an overall lovely stay. The pool is basic but large enough to cope with a totally...

Single bed was comfy enough. Bathroom was clean and well stocked. Internet access available. Only had breakfast there after the early morning start for...

Stayed in the "lodge" for two nights. This is exactly as advertised, it is a hostel. The beds aren't bad, there is an air conditioner that rattled the whole night. The bathrooms were reasonably clean. We had two dawn tours, so we showered well before dawn with cold water. We paid for the cheapest accommodations available at Ayers Rock Resort...

We walked in and stayed for 2 nights - first in a private double ensuite which was very comfortable. Unfortunately our neighbour got extremely drunk causing lots of noise, yelling and smashing doors etc. We called reception but action wasn't really taken. Not great when you need to wake up at 5:00am to catch a sunrise tour. As the room...

We were so surprised by everything our resort had to offer. Our room was so clean and had plenty of room for the 4 of us. The live music was fantastic, the pub was never noisy at night. The restaraunt was great value and DELICIOUS food (highly recommend the lamb shank), the casual dining was really affordable and we loved...

I really enjoyed staying at the Outback Pioneer. The room was very nice and clean. The staff was very helpful, friendly and welcoming. I would not recommend the walkup window for food. The female behind the counter never smiled and I never got sick, but the food didn't look the freshest. There's a nice gift shop and a star gazers...

Best hotel, separate bungalows, great service, the staff are friendly and very helpful. The bar is a great place to relax Aussie style, with great Aussie music playing. The bus tour and walks are great with excellent service and snacks. Great for a family holiday.

Given the location you can't expect much else. The hotel caters for both travelers and backpackers but the price you pay for a standard room, you're treated like a backpacker. The room is comfortable and clean but there is no housekeeping. We stayed 3 nights and the room was never serviced. The outdoorssurrounding the rooms is very untidy, rarely swept...
