Lovely experience

We enjoyed our stay at Voyages Outback Pioneer Hotel.
Our room was cozy and really clean.
The visit to Uluru was well organised and the sunrise was incredible!
There were not many local dining options but we highly recommend this resort.


Rooms r dated

The cleaning is done very late. 2 days we were back after 2 pm and the rooms were still not cleaned. Location is not a problem as there was a shuttle provided otherwise a walk to the town is 10 minutes across red sand. This resort is for those on Budget and not able to Camp.


Ideal for Uluru visit

The motel accommodation was well placed, staff friendly and service very good. A great outback experience with Bars, BBQ and meals convenient. Cook yourself area was a bit of fun for all visitors. Rooms were quiet with most having only one common wall. Entertainment every night and TVs and fre wifi reception best we came across while in the NT.
