A pleasant studio bedroom with king size bed plus Uluru view with balcony. Very quiet location. Friendly and helpful staff. Easy to pick up hire car at airport and drive around. No need to board a bus full of people. Expect to do a lot of walking in the red centre! Pre-purchase all your tours in advance. Camel ride was... More

We stayed at the Desert Gardens Hotel from 9-11 September with my in-laws visiting from overseas. We shared a double room and it was very comfortable. The room was clean and decorated nicely. We had a balcony overlooking the desert gardens which was nice. They do have rooms that have views of Uluru. Buffet breakfast was nice and there was... More

The hotel and service were fine. The breakfast was expensive so try and get a package. We had a great time and one of the highlights was the astronomy night. In addition there were free talks by Anangu people which put the icing on the cake.

We stayed here for 2 nights. We had 2 rooms, each with 2 queen beds. We were a party of 2 seniors, 3 adults and 2 children. The property has a nice setting with lots of pretty trees. The rooms seemed clean as well. We did not have very high expectations given the mixed reviews online. However, after we returned... More

We paid extra for a 'rock view' room, which was outstanding and in a nicely secluded corned of the complex. Be prepared, however, to be held prisoner to the extremely high prices of this tourist honeypot monopoly environment, where everything levies ultra-inflated tourist prices!

On arrival the check-in was professional and very swift. The room (twin room consisting of two king size beds), 48" flat screen tv, built-in modern furniture and an outside private sitting area. So far this all sounds like a five star rating. This is why I had to reduce three stars from the total rating. The hotel complex has been... More

Just spent two nights here. Great reception staff, good sized rooms, clean and comfortable with terrace and great bathroom. Free wifi, fridge, air con etc. However, breakfast in the restaurant was extortionately priced at nearly $40 per person for a cooked option, self serve at that, with a limited choice, ie only scrambled eggs, and chicken sausage, no other egg...

I love this place - the decor, the setting and the rooms. They are significantly better priced these days than a few years back when they were over $400 a night (certainly not worth that much!). I'd love to have more time around the pool which is nicely shaded by gorgeous ghost gums (similar to Sails in the Desert up... More
