“good value motel style option”
Reviewed 8 May 2012

this was one of the cheaper alice springs hotels- and it is in an excellent very central location

the pool was locked up throughout our stay which was a bit dissapointing, and they charged us the rate on the day rather than the cheaper rate we booked on internet months earlier- which is very bad!

but fair play the location and price hard to beat, and we got a free room upgrade too

big tip; the restaurant / breakfast room is lovely, but choose the cheap toast and unlimited coffee offer with them there (rather than the far pricier dull breakfast buffet)

warning; the hotel bar is very much a redneck locals place- you may wish to avoid!!

We were there for a night on either side of our trour to the Olga's and Ayer's Rock so we weren't looking for a resort or 5* property. This fit the bill perfectly and was a block away from a few galleries and a great breakfast place, and nearly across the street from a mall with a good supermarket. the hotel itself is a 50's motel, not fancy, but with a very friendly staff, clean and comfortable.

A quiet place to stay, clean and comfortable. A bit short on the towel side of things, no hand towels or face cloths, just bath towels and bath mats. Plenty of toiletries, large rooms. Old fashioned TV, but it works, well priced and good front desk staff

Room Tip: Night manager in attendance.....in The Alice this is a bonus when things go wrong at 1am.

We stayed in a standard room wich has tv with Austar and 2 free movie channels. The room was spacious and the bathroom was suprisingly big.

We wanted to stay away from the street so our room was facing the outdoor pool. It was quiet and the bed was comfortable.

We had dinner at Red Sea restaurant which is the hotels restaurant. They have many different salads to choose and many different main courses. The dining was relaxing with nice staff and good food.

We would stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for room away from the street :)

The best place for walking anywhere in town. Shops,bars,restaurants the mall. We arrived early and could book in and they were happy to let us have a late checkout. Could be the time of year as the town is quiet but they were still happy to oblige. Had dinner there one night (we ordered in the bar and ate outside people watching) had a 40 minute wait but the meal was
really good and fresh so did not mind the wait then.A cooked breakfast in the dining room also
took ages to arrive and there was only 8 people. Next morning just took the standard continental to save time. Staff was great everywhere and will definately stay there next time.
The rooms are older but really clean and everything has been well looked after.

Room Tip: got a summer sizzle booking online which was a great price and included breakfast and a free upgrade...
