Reception staff could be a bit friendlier. Room was clean. Fridge and air con worked well. Bed comfortable. Walk in shower worked well Good location on site restaurant was fine with friendly staff. The location is what makes this stand out as it's close to coffee shops bars etc.

Bathroom not clean. Wifi not working at all. General condition not good. Food is sort of ok but not very delicious. Alice Springs in general is not worth it. The good times passed by in this town. Would fly straight to Yulara.

Nothing can be taken for granted about cleanliness, hospitality, equipment or suggestions from the staff. So, when you can find them altogether, it's a pleasant surprise and you can have a different attitude towards people and the environment.

Since I stayed at Ayers Rock and Cable Beach Resort in 5-Star hotels I trusted that my assigned hotel AURORA in Alice Springs was the same. Aurora was my worst experience and equivalent to Backpackers or below. Cockroach, grey bed sheeting, light switch falling off at... More

This hotel was on our itinerary as we toured Australia. The Company called "Down Under" put the trip together after we discussed what we wanted to see and how much time. Wonderful trip except for this hotel. Sorry, but first they didn't have a first floor room, elevator that took forever and the room for us had a musty aroma,... More

Stayed here for work for one night and found it to be of good quality. Rooms are a step up from motel rooms and very clean. Centrally located. Do be aware if arriving late undercover car parking can be hard to find.

There are a few locations to choose from in Alice Springs with the main options on the 'other side' of the Todd River. The Aurora is centrally located on the 'town side' of the Todd. Staff are very pleasant and the room is clean and tidy. Free wifi worked brilliantly and the big bonus was a great shower. If I... More
