We stayed for just one night at the end of our trip to Uluru. The accommodation was fine, but well-overpriced. Would have been happy to pay half the rate and given positive feedback, but at this price, I expect much more. The offerings at dinner were of really low standard and the breakfast was almost inedible (fruits served were fermenting).
Check in was a bit slow due to volume of people arriving at the resort. The room was comfortable & well equipped. A good location & convenient to all amenities. Servicing of room was not as good as we would expect. eg beds were made but cups & mugs weren't cleaned. Servive people arrived at 8.30am when we were still getting ready to go out for the day & other days turned up at 4.30pm when we had come back & were relaxing after a day out.
Hi Wendy-Sue M Thank you for your review of the Outback Pioneer Hotel and I am really pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Ayers Rock Resort with all of the activities and amenities on offer. I do also appreciate your feedback regarding the servicing of your room and I apologise that the attention to detail was not of the highest standard. Thank you for visiting Ayers Rock Resort Kind Regards Mauri Van Den Bosch General Manager Outback Pioneer Hotel & Lodge
Check-in staff lady had No smiles. Service without smiles. Gave us the wrong room Keys. We were shocked to find ourselves inside someone else private space. Upon exiting as quickly as we could and reporting the mishap, they gave us the correct keys. Wasted an hour of our time. Dining options were limited and very slow. A further hour before we had our meal (takeaway had a long queue). Although remarkably the Room was clean and comfortable. Their Pigeon Hole Key system was waiting for a mistake. In fact when we complained to the Manager next morning, he admitted "these things happen". He had no eye contact with his Customer who had been inconvenienced. He was mumbling something on his Computer about fixing up. Parking was at a premium being the height of the Tourist Season. The paths to the rooms and corridors were poorly lit, making a newcomers life even more difficult.
Hello HillaLinz Sorry for the inconvenience of the wrong key. It is a very rare occurrence indeed and staff are reminded to be diligent when handing out keys constantly. The manager on duty that morning had passed on your concerns when I arrived to work, but unfortunately I had missed you by the time I was able to get the full communication of the issue. The Team at the Outback Pioneer regularly conduct customer service training. I will look at scheduling this again for the team to ensure our customer satisfaction Regards General Manager Outback Pioneer Hotel and Lodge Regards General Manager Outback Pioneer Hotel and Lodge
Stayed at the Outback Pioneer and Lodge for 2 nights earlier this month. The property is very well located. Reception was quick and easy and the ladies on reception were very helpful at all times of the day. The rooms were equipped with all mod cons and very clean. This property is the 'hub' of entertainment in the Yulara area and travellers from the other properties come here for the live music and the fantastic 'cook your own BBQ'. There are other choices of dining to cater for most tastes. We were very satisfied and will visit again and stay at this property, but for a longer period.
Hello 120CMS Well it certainly sounds like you enjoyed your time staying at the Outback Pioneer Hotel and Lodge. Thank you for sharing your experience on Trip Advisor.

When you return to Yulara we would more then happy to assist in accommodating you again. Regards Mauri Van Den Bosch General Manager
Hotel is very spacios. Facilities for families and backpackers is very good. I would suggest they provide a torch in rooms for walking to lookout at night. The barbeque facilities looked excellent and the pool is saltwater so water doesnot sting
Hello PRUDENCE B My maintenance manager at the hotel informed me only last week that the lights to the lookout have been upgraded. Sorry for any inconvenienced caused by the old lighting during your visit. Regards Mauri Van Den Bosch General Manager
Accommodation was very good being the outback of Australia the yards/surrounds are the typical red dust. Room was very good everything worked and well maintained. Front desk staff very quick to help. Meals were adequate however the breakfast buffet was not up to standard. Eggs. They run out. None in the kitchen and had to be sourced elsewhere. A lot of people did not get any eggs at all. Very slow to replace or top up items used again people missed out . For a resort that is above the normal cost for this standard, could of done better. Still enjoyed our stay.
