        Individual guest reviews

        • Family with children
          6.6

          Dinner good. Quiet at night. Attractive grounds.

          Having to pay extra for cappucino at breakfast on top of an already expensive buffet. Too few staff to keep breakfast buffet stocked.

        • Older travelers
          7.0

          Proximity to Airport and Uluru

          Very poor value for money. Not alone is rate exorbitant but they then have the nerve to charge an extra 1% Credit Card fee !!! My advice - stay in cheapest available. All hotels are in same location and seem to be owned by the same group.

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          The location and the fact that you have many choices for meals. The staff were friendly and helpful and the atmosphere was very relaxing. It was also quiet and restful, unlike some other hotels where the guests were noisy. I would recommend the Desert Gardens Hotel to anyone travelling to the rock.

        • Family with children
          6.2

          The rooms were well decorated an comfortable.

          The air conditioning in our room was set to a very high temperature and could not be altered. When we reported this we were told that the maintenance staff were off duty and that it would be fixed the next day- it was not fixed. we were offered a totally inadequate fan. The room was only cleaned and the beds made at 4pm in the afternoon when we were hoping to rest after a busy day. The bill was incorrect and had to be corected, delaying our departure. breakfasts were vert expensive at $34.oo for a full breakfast

        • Older travelers
          9.2

          We chose to stay in a room overlooking Uluru in the distance. Although we paid extra for this privilege, it was well worth it as we were able to view the rock at sunrise without having to brave the cold of a freezing July morning. We also appreciated the beauty of the gardens and the location of the hotel, which was close to the visitors' centre and village square.

          While our room was excellently appointed, the toilet didn't flush properly. I noticied the same problem with the toilets opposite the restaurant, so this issue may have something to do with the use of water.

        • Family with children
          7.8

          .Nice location

          Quite expensive especially the food. Should warn people before they go that they can only buy from one company in all places at the resort

        • Group of friends
          10.0

          Dine in meal was fantastic! Tasted devine!

        • Group of friends
          7.8

          Spacious and very comfortable and fantastic location

        • Family with children
          7.8

          Nice room, good bathroom, good facilities for eating, shopping, considering the remote location.

          A/C in room set too cold (not adjustable) and bedding not warm enough, but staff happy to provide more blankets.

        • Couple
          7.4

          This is a clean and practical place to stay at while visiting Uluru. You'll sleep well and will appreciate the modern bathroom. Staff are very accommodating, services are arranged seamlessly and the room, though basic, was immaculate.

          Before noting down the following points, I am mindful of the enormous overhead costs that are involved in creating a luxury resort in the desert wilderness. Nevertheless: I) Some restaurants may seem over- priced and ii) the mattresses and pillows may not be of the highest quality. These are but minor quibbles about an otherwise comfortable and very pleasing experience.

        • Couple
          7.8

          Handy location. Good size room, balcony. Rock views as described.

          No cable TV!

        • Group of friends
          7.8

          Excellent view of the Ayers Rock

        • Single
          5.8

          I booked a room with view to the Uluru. Unfortunately, the main street to the Ayers Rock Resort is very close. That means: All cars and coaches drive through.

        • Group of friends
          8.8

          Hotel staff provide great services, excellent efficiency and custom service manner.

        • Older travelers
          7.4

          Cleanliness and size of rooms. Better than I would have expected for a very tourist location.

          Common facilities look dated (E.G. lobby, bar etc). Food throughout Voyages was very similar and expensive despite going to different restaurants - need more variety.
