This was a really nice stop over for 1 night with my family whilst travelling. The pool was lovely, could use more shade but very relaxing. The room was tidy and well maintained. We travelled with our dog and he had plenty of shade on the balcony and under trees. Central location. Would definitely stay again

Easily located and in a nice location. The young members of staff were polite and very pleasant. The chalet was spacious and it was clean with very good amenities. The pool was excellent and a very welcome respite after our long journey. It would have been nice if we could have stayed for longer, I definitely recommend this hotel to...

This is a series of small self contained villas in a caravan park-like setting. Everything was neat and clean and relatively modern. For its price range, it was fine. A couple of things that could be better: the sheets were of poor quality and didn't feel nice to sleep in, and I found the room really airless. There was no...

The strange bedding spoilt this stay it is clear it is not washed between stays and has stains on it just because there there is a sheet between you and it does no t help. The carpet was is poor condition and therefore also felt unhygienic. Both our room and the pool are on busy main road so very noisy....

We stayed here twice on a round trip to Uluru. We were greeted with helpful and friendly staff. The rooms are clean and comfortable with all the facilities we needed. There was a laundry room and a pool. Town is a drive away but within walking distance. Casino, restaurants and pub close by. Would stay again.

These were villas in a caravan park like place. It is located a little out of town and can be accessed by bus or car. The room was clean enough, comfortable but dated. The porch light could not be switched off and we had to sleep with light coming through the sliding doors. The service was sufficiently pleasant to receive...

Thanks Ingrid for your review. I are glad you enjoyed your stay, found us clean and value for our prices. I am sorry about the airconditioning over the top bunk but it is not possible to change the layout of the family rooms. We only have 5 of the family rooms and only recommend for 2 adults and 3 children...

Stayed for a couple of nights and loved it - could have stayed longer if time permitted. After travelling, this is a great spot for rest and recuperation. Rooms are clean, bed it comfortable and the pressure in the shower is great. Close enough but far enough away from town and within walking distance to the casino. Highly recommended

Spend a few days after my overseas flight. Nice place, a lot of space - the very right spot for acclimatisation. Have been here some years ago and didn't regret the decision to come here again. It's a little longer walk to town centre but if you try to acclimatise to Australian climate - it's the right way to do...

After a long day on the road my first impression was an inviting one with the complex abundant with a variety of palms. The reception staff were polite, efficient and friendly. Parking in front of the villa was very convenient with a room containing a queen and two singles worked well. The room was clean and well appointed. The bathroom...
