We have just held our wedding on 8th March at Ayers Rock which was organised through the fantastic coordinator Michelle Thompson and Bonnie from Voyages. Organising a wedding from the UK was no mean feat but they were both amazing and the day could not have been more perfect. The hotel was so accommodating to us, from steaming my dress...

We spent three nights at the Desert Gardens, staying in a rock view room and had a very enjoyable stay. Our room was newly refurbished, spacious and very comfortable with two double beds and a covered balcony with a cracking view of Uluru. The room was also spotlessly clean too. We were treated to a very warm welcome when we...

We stayed 4 nights and really enjoyed it, great staff on reception, special mention for Freddy, our housekeeper, a very nice helpful guy, the pool and surrounding areas were great for relaxing. Uluru itself is a wonderful, mystical place, as is Kata Tjuta nearby. I must mention Gerry our guide around these places, with. Emu tours I think. A truly...

Uluru is a magical place but remote so the choices of hotels are not huge, picked this one just by chance. The hotel was clean however the restaurant was closed for renovations while we were there. Can only say that the hotel is ok but not great.

We really enjoyed our time at Desert Gardens. We had a lovely, very clean and updated room - twin room, no kitchen. The front desk service was consistently friendly and exceedingly helpful. We loved that we could store our baggage and yet have access to a change room and towels to use the pool while we waited for our room...

Nice, clean rooms and bathrooms, but there is one big disadvantage and that is that there are no elevators so when one has a room on the second floor and lots of luggage, it is a big hazzle! The internet is working O.K,

Very clean and comfortable, subtlely furnished with all the basic necessities one craves after a hard day's trek at the Olgas. The friendliest staff I have ever met, they will go out of their way to ensure you are satisfied. I urge all Australians who have not had the fortune to visit Uluru to come and experience this amazing place...

The room and bathroom were nice, clean and comfortable. We gave it only three stars because of two things. First, our room was way at the back and it was very hard to negotiate getting our luggage to the room. There was one ramp for roller suitcases but you had to go out of the way to find it. Otherwise...

“If you can get a room upstairs (there's no lift) and the room does look out towards the Rock I think it's worth the bit extra”
