This is a perfectly good hotel although not the most modern in the resort. I stayed here for two nights as part of my Australian tour. The rooms are located in blocks away from the main reception and were large and very clean. Even as a solo traveller I was in a room with a Queen bed and a single...

We stayed here at one of the private rooms with shared bathrooms (not our 1st choice but everywhere else was booked out!). Rooms are comfortable with aircon and fridge. Shared bathroom and kitchen areas are acceptable. A shoutout to the staff who did well on the day we checked in as their power/internet went down for a while - they...

We stayed at the hotel and had a room slightly better than expected. Good size, bathroom bit dated, needed a bit of work. Shuttle bus to other accommodation and the 'town centre'. But not much there, supermarket, gift shop, cafe, restaurant. Our sunset barbecue was the highlight of our visit! Restaurant expensive especially the breakfast. Nowhere to. Buy food at...

Several accommodation options here but we were in the hotel. Single level rooms spread throughout in small blocks. Nothing is very far from the pool and restaurants. The room was tidy and clean and a good size. The aircon worked though in May it isn't too hot. Yulara itself isn't very big and it is less then 10 minutes walk...

We bought 2 x burgers and 1 small chips and paid an extra $3 for chicken on our BLT burgers. They were the worst burgers we have ever eaten. Not only did we wait a long time, suffer poor service but they don't even grill or butter the buns. I had to go back for sauce as the burger was...

Book this place early and you will most likely get a better rate - I did 4 months in advance and paid almost half what I would closer to my travel dates as I checked. The room was super clean, spacious, comfortable, close to parking and a short walk to the pool and restaurant. This hotel is a bit of...

We spent 4 nights here. The room was spacious, well set out and tastefully decorated. If you have mobility issues the shower over the bath may be an issue and we couldn't always get a car park close to our room. Our room had a sliding door out onto a semi private garden and we enjoyed sitting there with a...

We opted for the Pioneer Lodge option for our visit to Uluru during our 9 week trip around Australia. Two adults and one 4 year old travelling, so I booked all the beds in a 4 bed dormitory style room for $180. The extremely basic room consisted only of 2 bunk beds, hard concrete floor and a boarded up window....
