Loved our stay. Great location with shops and tours close by. Room was quiet and good blinds to keep the light out.

Food was expensive but other options close by.

Staff were very helpful and friendly. Mark at the door went above and beyond to make our stay great.

Would have loved an info folder of menus and whats on around Yulara. Was hot to go out looking.

Thanks for a great stay

Our room was really nice. Spacious and clean. The location is great, they stored our luggage and there are two restaurants on site and the supermarket is only 5 mins by foot. A cool extra is the washing machine. Its free to use and even detergent is complimentary.

The staff is more or less friendly (not really helpful though) and they are not well organized at all. Nobody seems to inform their colleagues, nobody knows of what’s going on (luggage pick-up, late checkout etc).The prices are really high and I would expect a lot more but I guess you pay for the location. We had to explain the pick up, when we are leaving etc 4 times! Really? For 375 AU per night? Too bad!

Stayed at this resort for 3 nights and this is ample enough time to view the rock and to have some relaxation time. We had the silence of the sounds tour booked for the Saturday evening but unfortunately due to the rain it was cancelled, we went to reception who kindly moved us onto the next evening which it went ahead and it was truly the most remarkable experience I have ever encountered and will stay with me forever. The hotel resort is very clever in the fact you can use all of the facilities in each hotel at ease. The hotel itself is ok and did its job for the 3 nights we stayed there for. Hotel staff are pleasant and will help you with anything.

After travelling some 8 hrs to stay and see the Rock, an Australian Heritage Icon for all Australian's, I am disappointed. The accommodation is barely 3 star, aged, lacking detail, and suitable resources in the rooms. To our surprise, when we pulled back the bedroom sheets we discovered ants nesting. Then to shower in a bathtub, with stained shower curtains, two moths flew into the bathtub. Considering the price well above $350 per night, delux room, it is disappointing.
Despite the readily available hospitality services, somewhat over priced, the feel of the hotel does provide us some justice, but then it's lacks the detail afforded to the rating and historical tourism value.
Please provide Foxtel to the television options.
It does feel like it accommodates the international community rather than representing the heritage of Australia.

The Ayers Rock Resort does not have the benefit of local competition and in some ways that shows, in other ways they keep themselves to a very high standard. The resort area was built in the 1980s and it shows in some ways. Some of the outside of buildings, gardens, the pool area etc. are looking a bit worn, while the hotel rooms and restaurants as well as the shops in the hotel have been beautifully renovated. The rooms are big and comfortable with all the things you need in a hotel room: shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, iron and ironing board, fridge, kettle, safe, bathrobes etc. They are also nicely decorated with aboriginal art. Most (if not all) rooms have a balcony or small outside area.
Everything you do around Uluru can - and should - be booked through the hotel or the associated tour operator. There are a number of free activities - walks and talks about astronomy, history, culture, flora and fauna etc. - and a couple of lookout points close to the hotel. But most activities around Uluru and Kata Tjuta come at a price. It is not cheap but the money goes to the national park and the local community.
