Lovely hotel, spacious rooms, renovations happening while we were there so dining room closed and workmen and noise about during the day. Pleasant 5 min walk to town square for restaurants and shopping. Will be a true oasis in the desert once the renos are finished.

Although they are undergoing renovations and there seemed to be no other guests, it was quite comfortable. Room was large and well appointed. Only disappointment was the costs and variety of food.

とても快適な部屋で、リラックスできました。季節が冬で寒かったのでプールには入りませんでしたが、もう少し暖かければ入ろうかな、と思う程いつもきれいにメンテナンスしているようでした。

We knew that all hotels at Ayers Rock are located within one block and all owned by the same holding company. With that said, we read the prior reviews and tried to pick the hotel with the highest ratings - Sails in the Desert. It was overpriced, but that was expected. What I wasn't anticipating was the number of bugs present in the hotel. When we inquired, we were told that it is 'a natural desert environment and we don't exterminate.' . .. . .this includes the restaurant areas. If you are intent on seeing Yularu and the history of the Aborigines then this is the best option of hotels - just know what you're getting into. They are slowly renovating all the rooms, it is highly needed. We had drinks in the bar, and the chairs were very worn, threadbare would be the better description. Wireless internet is available, but at a high cost, food is all average, nothing above ordinary.

Thoroughly enjoyed the time there. Everything was excellent and the service from check-in to check-out was extremely friendly. What impressed me was the friendliness of Staff wherever we went. They greeted us and checked on any needs we had....not often one finds that at hotels. It was my second visit and I will definitely return and definitely stay at Sails in the Desert.

Everything is very good. The only thing is a bit pricey. Everyone was friendy and service was great. We had brekky and all were delicious. The room is spacious and comfortable. The hotel is simple and modern design, I liked it. There were many bugs in room I encountered but maybe any hotel in Uluru had it. Plus they put a note about bugs so it was a good warning.

The Kuniya restaurant food was outstanding as well as the impeccable service there. My bed and linen were beautiful with comfy pillows. Bath products were delightfully fresh and unlike any elsewhere I had been. I loved the close proximity to shopping centre and the incorporated giftshop and art gallery. The shuttle service and tour operators were great. I would stay there again.

We have to wait 1hour before having a room for 3 people at 5pm. Everything in a room for only 2 people during all the stay. Not any help for luggages. Service like in a 3star hotel.

We were in a standard room. Loved the large size of the room and the large and thick towels. The service at the front counter was excellent.

The hotel was a little oasis in the desert and the pool very welcome in the heat of January. Only drawback was the very limited number of TV stations which you do rely on when resting inside to avoid the heat of the day.

The staff were very professional, I enjoyed my day spa with Michelle Burke she was an absolute professional, a true asset to the Day Spa..... The whole experience was amazing, I would certainly not hesitate in returning, as long as I can have the same room again. Thank you Marie Shaw

Quite a nice hotel. Large size rooms and very clean. Staff friendly. Very over priced though for the amount of time you spend in the actual room. Even though we paid the discounted rate it was very pricy.

The bed was very hard. The cups and spoons were not clean. The meal at the bar was good, but expensive. Quick drive to the national park. The staff were friendly and helpful.

There was not enough information available ahead of time. I didn't know there was a free shuttle bus to the airport, that would have saved me 80 dollars. Otherwise, the trip was delightful. thanks again...

This is a hard review to do, the 'hotel' is excellent. However the rooms are below average. It is also very expensive. That being said it is the best accommodation near uluru, and because of the locational the price is understandable.

Very nice hotel, a bit expensive and some of the staff in the eating area very slow, Especially Annoying when we had a tour to catch.
