Great location.
Nice facility but very dark and hard to find room at night. One staff member at the counter and one in the restaurant were not pleasant.

Very pleasantly surprised by service and quality!
While visiting Uluru, hotel options are limited. We chose Desert Gardens mainly based on the other positive reviews. I was concerned about us not having a private bathroom as listed by some of the other reviews for one of the other hotels. I must say, that though pricey, we were very pleased with everything about the hotel. The staff was very prompt and friendly and the room itself was spacious, very clean and had modern furnishings and Aboriginal art on the beddings and walls. The bathroom was also clean and spacious. Overall, a very comfortable and pleasant stay at a location where if they wanted to, due to the lack of competition in the area, they could easily get away with much less both in their quality of service as well as the quality of the rooms. Of note, beware of the many insects, bugs and flies that are around the actual Uluru rock in the park!! We may have been there on a particularly bad day, but the hotel staff said that the insects are a problem year round. Thankfully, this was not a problem at the hotel itself. Just thought we'd add this, so you take your insect repellant with you!

Be prepared to hike in the hot heat to your room.
Hotel stay was very pleasant though a bit pricey. No one offered to help us get our luggage to the room. The rooms are no where near the parking lot. We had to hike about a quarter mile from the parking lot to our room in 90+ degree heat and sun. Not for someone who has trouble walking distances in the hot heat. Not much choice out there to pick from. Rooms were OK. Most don't have a view. Lobby is very sterile.

Average
This is an ok hotel. I wouldn't rate it as more than two stars though as I feel that it is worn out and needs renovating. Also, the wifi was terrible and check-in/check-out times were very inconvenient given the limited amount of flights to the area. Also, everything was way overpriced from the hotel to the spa to the bar.

Worth it
We decided to splurge to get a room with a view of Uluru. It was fun to watch the colors change and the shadows of the clouds sweeping across 'the Rock'. The service by the hotel staff was excellent.
