Desert Gardens Novotel Hotel in Ayers Rock. We spent two nights at this hotel and trust me you do not need any more time at Ayers Rock. There are several Resorts in this small cluster of hotels but they all looked the same to me. The beds were comfortable and the room was of good size. The air conditioning had...

Aircond in the room was not working properly made the stayed a bit uncomfortable especially during hot summer weather. The technician couldn't fix it. Being offered either to change to a different room or being provided with a standing fan. We chose a standing fan instead since we just going to stay there for one night only.

Hotel room very nice clean and comfortable beds. We liked the little touch of the bug spray in the room. The bar staff needs to be trained a little better in customer service. Swimming pool was lovely and our grandchildren loved the fact it was open till 11pm.

We stayed two nights, our main reason was obviously to see Ayers Rock. The room was motel like and yes many bugs got into the room so we learned to enter/exit quickly. Pool was closed due to recent flooding but we were able to swim at the Sails in the Desert pool. Sails in the Desert seems less motel like...

We stayed there for a night. Had to pay $270/- for a room with bunk beds and lot of spiders and mosquitos. Room was not clean and looked like sheets have been reused. I will not recommend any one to use this hotel. The only grace was a very live food area.

The rooms were nice, excellent restaurant. It being sat in the middle of the scorching desert was very interesting. The hotel staff were lovely, and it is not too far from the airport. The hotel to stay at when visiting the national park.

We upgraded to a room with a view of Ayres Rock with the thought of leaving the curtains open to wake up to see the sunrise over the rock unfortunately due to the layout of the room we couldn't see the rock from the bed! The room had apparently been recently refurbished and certainly it looked very fresh and the...
