We thoroughly enjoyed our time here - in Feb 2014 . The staff were lovely and accommodating. The rooms were clean and provided everything we needed. The bed was really comfy. It is expensive, but I think totally worth it. Remember you are in the middle of the desert. The balcony was lovely to unwind after a full day of... More

Good hotel, probably the best at Yulara; spacious comfortable rooms (although some are quite a hike away from reception), nice staff. Free Wi-Fi in rooms. Great breakfast. Option of a bar meal or a rather pretentious 'interactive dining menu' (I have yet to have a dinner that I didn't interact with...) If visiting Yulara for Ayer's Rock (Uluru) would recommend...

stayed here for a day while visiting the area...the rooms are a little dated but the staff are friendly, the service is nice, and the entire community is contained within a short walk...it is remote but we filled our 24 hours with 3 tours and less than 6 hours of sleep...

This is a good place to stay comfortable rooms, good restaurants, swimming pool, lounges, great staff and good wifi. Lost excellent rating as we had a leaking toilet and had to change rooms efficiently handled by night staff.

Took my mother on a bucket list trip and I'm glad we splurged to stay here. Beautiful grounds, quiet moments on the balcony, pool inviting and cool, interior decor totally added to the experience and appreciated the laundromat next building over. Loved how they packed box lunch for early outing next day. Shared 2 queens with Mom in the room... More

After reading some of the comments for this hotel, I was a little worried with what we'd be arriving to. The hotel is expensive, but that's to be expected given the remoteness of the location and its proximity to Uluru. In short our two night stay was fantastic. Our room was a terrace suite and it was clean, well maintained... More
