I stayed here twice between tours around Alice Springs. Hotel is about 20-30 minutes walk from town centre. Motel has a 1960's Mom & Pop feel to it. Rooms do show their age, but are kept very clean. Simple continental breakfast included, and available at early hours for those needing to catch an early tour. Nice clean swimming pool. Manager... More

Comfortable and value for money for a budget motel. The room itself was clean, comfortable and good value for money at $90 per night. The bathroom was also very nice. However, the bed linen was dirty (it seemed to have oil stains) and smelt of body odor. They also didn't make up our room after our first night. The shower... More

We stopped at this motel over night when driving from Darwin to Melbourne. The rooms were great size, clean, comfortable and quiet. Had a really decent sleep as the beds were very comfortable. Air con was good - the rooms had all the basic amenities. Motel itself was good. Swimming Pool, Laundry and my favourite was the communal kitchen. That... More

Room was good with a big bed and a single. Bathroom was also good but had a slight smell to it. Fridge didn't work to well and the freezer section was literally full of ice and unusable! Football/cricket club down the road was a good spot for dinner after a swim in the pool. The complex has two security gates... More

This is an older motel style property. Stayed here both sides of a 3 day camping trip to Uluru. It is about a 15 minute walk to town. It looks further than it is. There are several restaurants on the way. There is luggage storage available and the basic DIY morning breakfast is set out late the night before for... More

We stayed at the motel before going on a 3 day trip to Uluru; the motel is well set up for people taking these kinds of trips as provides luggage storage facilities, and an early do it yourself...

Stayed here before and after a 3 night tour to Uluru. found it to be well run with pleasant and helpful staff. The swimming pool was a bonus. Motel was a 15 min walk to town , but local sports club did good food.

When writing a review one has to take into account the overall economics of the area and calibrate accordingly. This is the context when I write this review. Australia is expensive - no doubt. But for AUD 90 - this is the best bang for your buck when you're in Alice. I do not nitpick the oldness of the place,... More

Never have I been so misled by a Trip Advisor favorable reco. Our room was a wreck. The door was falling off its hinges and would barely close. The curtains were tattered. The tile in the bathroom patched and cracked. The list goes on but you get the point. See the attached pics if you doubt this report. It is... More

Dear Glen B I was very saddened to read your recent review of our establishment. I do remember you checking in and I do remember that I accommodated you in one of our very nice rooms. Room 13 has always been a very popular room with our guests. There is NO door hanging off it's hinges in that room and... More
