Bij een vakantie door Australië mag eigenlijk een bezoek aan Ayers Rock niet ontbreken.
Ayers Rock, ook wel Uluru genoemd in de officiële aboriginal-taal, staat op de werelderfgoedlijst van Unesco en is zeer bekend.
De fantastische kleurschakeringen bij zonsopgang en zonsondergang en de rode grond in combinatie met de heldere blauwe hemel zijn een lust voor het oog.
Het plaatsje Ayers Rock ligt in het midden van Australië en biedt niet veel meer dan een supermarkt en wat accommodaties, maar beschikt wel over een vliegveld.
"Not many options but still good hotel"
Being in Ayers Rock is like being stranded on an island. You only get what you are given. All the resort is run by the same company so don't expect any competitive prices. Most restaurants are buffet style which is not what I look for in a hotel. If you wish to save money best visit the local supermarket. Even so the prices are still high as you are a captive market. Uluru and Kata Tjuta make up for it as the walks, sunrise and sunsets are truly beautiful. The hotel is old school - needs some new features in but it has a huge swimming pool , a very good breakfast buffet and a laundry room.
"Part of our tour "
Sails in the Desert was a delight after the other hotels we had stayed in during our tour of Oz. The rooms are big, comfortable and the beds were lush. The best nights sleep and the lovely shower was most welcome after a hot, sweaty day out. We were disappointed to only stay at the hotel for one night. Breakfast was very nice although it was a bit cheeky to charge for a cold cup of coffee. We had a wonder time at Ayers Rock. A memorable visit
I am back and forth between "average" and "poor" Its one of those places where the know that there are little options around for you to go elswhere. This place has definitely seen better days. As such i think the prices are at least 50$ to high per night. But start with the positives: Great comfy bed Spacious room Clean bedsheets Balkony Central location next to supermarket Parking space in the back Pool Very nice staff in cleaning, restaurant and bar Now for the "not so muches": Low maintenance throughout. No matter where you look stuff falls apart. Athough 36+ degrees outside you get only 2 complimentary bottles of water per stay. Lots of critters everywhere. Now im not a fan of killing all creatures but having to litterly whatch where you step each time on the compound (as well as inside) to not step on a bug is rather idiotic. Checkin and out. Now this is a mayor one. When arriving don't expect rooms to be finished as they do service from 15:00 on. So be patient and sit with all till at least 13:00 for the room. As such, dont take an early flight when comming here. Checkout: after merely arguing whith the assistant manager we were able to get a 10:30 instead of 10:00 checkout. Wow what an amazing flexible service!! The reason "we are 100% booked" ...The superb offer i got was to extend till max 11:00 for $50!! As such, whats the deal with fully booked if clearly it is possible when paying $50 for 30min?!? Obviously we did not take the gracious offer. My comment to the manager, be more flexible towards your guests. Although knowing they don't have much options, make them feel like home and less that they are in a money making place. Now in a hotel with 10rooms i get these 2 scenarios however not in a big hotel like this. So having dealt with this i have revised and set my rating to poor. Knowing there are not many options around i set the ladder higher then usually becouse i think you need to deliver more then this place does.
"Well that's the way it is!!"
Following wonderful experiences in the first two hotels we have stayed in (Marina Mandarin in Singapore and Four Seasons in Sydney) on our current trip, the attitude and responses of senior staff at this hotel beggars belief! To say that they were totally inflexible, rude and arrogant would be an understatement. We became aware of issues on our arrival at check-in - a very early morning sightseeing trip would mean we would likely miss out on a full, paid up-front, breakfast and would have a boxed breakfast instead. The response to this "well, that's the way it is!!" A similar response was elicited from the manager on duty with regards to bottled water in the room. In an area such as Ayers Rock, where one must drink as much water as possible, surely supplies of bottled water would and indeed should be freely available rather than at an exorbitant charge of $8 for 750ml. We had the same response from the manager "well that's the way it is!!" The customer isn't always right - but as a manager in a hotel, in the hospitality trade, the aim surely is to make a customer feel welcome, to feel at home, not to argue with the them and to be rude to them at the front desk in front of other clients. And when you see the customer later, and he informs you that "the travel agent made a boo-boo", don't expect the customer to grovel at your feet in gratitude. We understand that there are trainees for the hospitality industry in this area - I hope that they don't follow the example set by the senior staff here! I felt that the desk staff wanted to be more helpful, but were constrained. I have never experienced such rudeness as displayed by this manager - I honestly hope I don't again in the future. If he bothers to read this, I am sure he will belittle what I have said - which will be sad - he should try to learn from it - but then he may be too arrogant to do so.
"Very good hotel"
We stayed here for two nights to visit Uluru/Ayers Rock. The facilities at the hotel were very good. The rooms are spacious and the beds comfortable. The food was excellent and the restaurant staff very helpful and obliging. All the hotels are under the same ownership. I would recommend this hotel. The rooms are clean and pleasant. Previous reports have mentioned ants and such in the rooms but you are in the middle of a desert and insects are a fact of life. If you can't stand a bit of wildlife don't come here, stick to Sydney and you will miss a really interesting experience.
