Horrible Motel, Horrible Experience!
This hotel ruined my experience of what is probably one of the most gorgeous locations on earth - Ayers Rock/Uluru. The Accor Hotels chain has created the Ayers Rock Resort with four housing options all owned by them, and (surprise, surpise!) they're all horribly overpriced. Outback Pioneer was the least expensive option offered by Accor, which is why I booked it, but this was my worst hotel experience in my entire trip to Australia - and perhaps anywhere ever. Outback Pioneer is basically a two-star motel, very overpriced, with cheap furniture and hard, uncomfortable beds. The rooms have electrical problems, so flashing lights and smoke detectors strobe all night and keep waking you up. The hotel staff couldn't figure out how to fix the flashing light on my phone, so we finally just unplugged it. The staff themselves are a mixed bag - some quite nice and some very surly and unpleasant. Wi-fi in this hotel is very slow and unreliable. And the food in their main restaurant was grotesquely overpriced and truly disgusting. Breakfast, featuring cold scrambled eggs and cold pancakes, will cost you a whopping $35. I think this is one of the reasons why monopolies are outlawed (at least here in the US). This is exactly what happens when you have a monopoly on a location. Unfortunately, you're stuck booking an Accor Hotel if you want to see Ayers Rock, as they own the entire place. (Why, Australia???) But try to avoid this hotel if you can.

So so hotel forever checkin process
Very basic in all ways. Not the best , but not the worst. The shuttle was good. Checkin was very time consuming.

Nice place, premium pricing
I think others have said it as well, but this is nice place. It's just that since the properties are all a part of the ayer's rock resort umbrella, they have a monopoly out by Ulura/Kata Tjuta and can charge a serious premium. Still even though I felt overcharged I enjoyed staying here.

Great place!
Great place to stay near Uluru. The BoughHouse restaurant was very good as was the open eating area where you could cook your own steak if desired. Prices were all very reasonable. A supermarket is nearby where the prices were also very reasonable. There is a star gazing hill attached to the hotel and the Assistant Manager helped us to find that as well as loaning us his flashlight to walk up there in the dark
