Disappointing Stay
We were very disappointed with our "villa." The website pictures, although accurate, portrayed the rooms as a little more put together. Our room had a big 4" spot of paint missing over one of the beds that had the concrete wall showing through. The kitchen equipment was helpful as a walk to any of the local restaurants was at least 15 minutes--a beautiful walk but not too comfortable to do in 104 degree heat. Our biggest issue was getting our room cleaned/straightened. We returned from an 18 hour day of touring Uluru to find our beds hadn't been made, floor hadn't been swept, etc. When I mentioned to the front desk, they did send someone down the next day but again, they didn't sweep and I had to ask them to straighten the beds as they left. There was no housekeeping on Sunday. All in all, a very disappointing stay and I would not stay here again.

Reasonable hotel with very slow internet
The staff moved us to a room closer to the reception area where they expected that our wifi was going to be faster but it still did not work fast enough to use.

Good staging area for trips to the Outback.
Staff is friendly, helpful and professional. Photo of pool on website is somewhat misleading; the pool is actually quite small. The hotel is somewhat out of town, but that worked well for us as we had a car. Kitchen was very well supplied with utensils. Rooms were clean, quiet and comfortable.
