“A bit of luxury in the Outback”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

Starting our Northern Territory holiday at the Chifley was a night of absolute luxury. Staff were very welcoming and our room was great. Just a short walk, well illuminated at night, and we were at Todd Mall in the middle of the town.

Room Tip: As it is a very quiet location we didnt think noise would be a problem.

Every staff member is friendly and very accommodating. Rooms immaculate. Restaurant menu and food fantastic and quick service, open all day. Location is only 5 minutes from town on foot. The only thing I can fault is the lack of a ramp up to reception.

I have stayed at the Chifley in Alice four times in the last three years. I have written this review based on my three night stay earlier this month. The facilities are excellent,the front desk service was exemplary . No mean feat given the sheer number of overnight stays.
I have stayed elsewhere but will now always opt for the Chifley.
However, the Barra on Todd deserves a special mention. The menu was well structured,food quality was great and the service very good.
Our latest visit was a treat after a two month bush camping sojourn in the Top End.
We were able to securely park our camper trailer. We were not alone.
In short a great place for a well deserved break.

Room Tip: I think the River Gum rooms facing the Todd River are good value and very spacious with the added...

Stayed at the Chifley when in Alice Springs for work. We missed the turnoff into the entrance after coming over the bridge from town. From the map we had thought the resort was on the r) hand side. Once we worked out where we we going it was all good. If the driveway is blocked by buses and cars checking in just drive through as there is plenty of parking inside handy to reception and the rooms. Reception staff were efficient and we were quickly in our rooms.
My room was large with two double beds, large bathroom and a small verandah. Tea and coffee making equipment with plenty of supplies including hot chocolate were welcome as was the reasonably priced mini bar items. My room had iron/ironboard as well as spare blanket and pillows. All in all very comfortable accommodation. Air conditioner worked well, even though it was 0c outside I was toasty warm inside.
Had dinner in the restaurant, service was adhoc on a busy night but overall a pleasant experience. Food was good and I will certainly stay and eat there again on another trip to Alice.

During our travels through central Australia, we spent several days in the Alice Springs area, and stayed at the Chifley Resort. It's an easy location to the down town area, good walk. We enjoyed a variety of tours during our stay so the location was convenient. The hotel is dated. Rooms were older, but comfortable. Good hot showers. Coin laundry facility available. Staff were friendly. No valet service, room WIFI was very weak, needed to sit in the lobby for a signal. Popular with tour bus groups. Our room fee included buffet breakfast, which was fair.

Room Tip: Weekend had live music in the evening, may ask for room away from pool area if you are an early to b...

I often stay at the Chifley in Alice Springs and am always impressed by the standard of facilities and service.
I recently had to stay at another hotel in Alice which has the same rates and was disappointed. Last week I stayed at the Chifley again and was so happy to be back.
The Service is genuine and you do get the good service, cleanliness and facilities that you pay for. 5 Stars for consistancy!

I stayed four nights in this hotel as part of a small tour group so cannot comment on price. I found the room to be comfortable and warm and the staff friendly and helpful, especially the handyman who brought me a bed lamp when the bed lights failed and it was too late in the day for an electrician. The meals were plentiful and served promptly and the breakfast variety was well up to standard. The location on the (sandy) river was attractive and the shopping centre was only a short walk away. On our last day the management laid out a red carpet for our little group and presented us all with chocolates. The only disappointment was that the room was not well serviced on one occasion, with the doona pulled up over an unmade bed and the bathroom left untidied.
