Desert Gardens Hotel Ayers Rock Guest Reviews (47)


Desert Gardens Hotel Ayers Rock
4.8 out of 5

Crowne Plaza is in a great location and easy walking distance to the town centre and Casino. Hire bikes are also available from outside the hotel. The in-house dining is excellent, with two great restaurants to choose from. Buffet breakfast is also excellent. Recommend the Crowne Plaza if you are seeking good quality accommodation and services.

Very expensive for an ordinary room (although rated 4-star). Fortunately, it is in the midst of a "desert garden" which makes the stay enjoyable.

perfectly fine given you don't really stay in the hotel except to sleep; expensive like all the others but then it's a captive market and they do have to ship everything in; probably the best location in terms of access

The restaurant for dinner offered excellent food at a reasonable price, unlike elsewhere in the Yulara resort. The deluxe room was spacious and well serviced and maintained. One of the reception staff was inept, while others were very efficient. The gardens are a delight.

Accomodation was OK, but the standard are more like a 3-star hotel at a luxury 5-star price. Everything at Ayers Rock is very costly, so be prepared. We suspect that the more modest hotel standards was equal in quality, but slightly more modestly priced. However, to fly into Alice Springs and drive the 500 kilometres into Ayers was not an option either.

Everything is expensive at Ayres ROck resort, hotel was good, food was excellent, but you have no real choice where to stay. If you stay at the resort you have to pay the prices. Wont rush back to the resort but a good experience nevertheless. We stayed in a deluxe room with views of the rock, but it was a long walk back to the central shopping district.

The hotel was very well appointed and clean. The room was clean and spacious. The prices were a little on the high side however this was probably due to its remote location. 4 out of 5*.

Service in restaurants was good but the service whilst checking in was terrible. Because mosy people arrive by plane there are many to check in at once but with only 2 staff, it took nearly 1 hour to check in.

Great location and lovely service, the meal we had there on the set menu was beautiful, though I felt hotel and food was a little expensive but I expected that due to the locationof the hotel.

Great location, staff very friendly. Resort complex had lots to offer though having to wait until 10 am on Sunday morning for a decent coffee ( not instant) was a little difficult seeing as the resort is high end.
