Nice accommodation well situated

Posted Jul 26, 2014
We had a family room at Desert Palms and were very happy with it. Bedding was comfortable and we had a small kitchen that enabled us to cook. We were within walking distance from Botanic Gardens where we breakfasted twice - lovely. Walking distance also from hanuman restaurant and also a couple of other options. Would recommend this one.

Good for travellers

Spacious rooms with verandah and small kitchen. Individual units are great. Need a car to stay here as is a bit out of town but that is good because it is quiet.

clean but very small rooms

Posted Jun 23, 2014
Pros: Bus stop very close by. Easy walking distance to town centre. Staff great!
Cons: space inside rooms. But as these are all separate villas of the same or similar size differing only in number of beds this can't be improved.
Location: olive pink gardens, short walk into town centre, desert park, reptile centre, camel rides, telegraph station, RFDS, school of the air, billy goat hill
The staff were very friendly and helpful. The beds were comfortable and the room was clean. However for four people, 2 adults and 2 children the room (quad villa) was very small and cramped. Limited space to put bags and nowhere other than beds to sit on inside. There were 2 stools at the kitchenette bench but acces was limited due to proximity of beds. Fantastic outdoor kitchen with BBQ, power, hotwater etc. We found it better and easier than cooking in the villa.

convenient, clean and reasonably priced

Posted Jun 2, 2014
Pros: everthing
Cons: provide shattle service into the city
Location: already mentioned above
we looked at several hotels in the area and finally decided for the desert palm and we are glad we did. We were picking up a camper the next day for our trip to uluru and found their bongalow style very convenient to drive the camper up and load our things. The room was large with a nice terrace and a pool ( that we did not get to use). we did walk downtown but is over a mile in the heat. walking back at night does not appear to be a good idea so we took a taxi ( around 10 $)- this is the only downside to this hotel. otherwise just fine.

Hotel is a bit far off the town centre. Room was clean, but bathroom could have been in better shape. Price/quality ratio is not brilliant.

Fair facilities for a fair price

Posted Mar 10, 2014 on Hotels.com
This place was just the hotel we were looking for. We stayed here for three nights during Feb 2014, and found the resort a nice place to relax. The 4 share room we stayed in contained all the essentials though was quite crowded with four adults trying to move around. In saying that this was what we paid for and the room was clean and accommodating and was not bad for the price. The pool was lovely and deffinitely gave the hotel the resort feel, the only let down was the cooking facilities. The room had a small hot plate and the BBQ was quite a walk away. All in all a good place for a resonable price.

This was my fifth stay at this hotel and, certainly, not the last.
