My conclusions from three visits while hiking in the region: friendly helpful staff; clean, well designed and appointed rooms; comfortable, ergonomically sound beds and mattresses; good showers with plenty of hot water; very good restaurant by motel standards; clean pool; good laundry; central location. Overall, very good value for money, strongly recommended and we'll be back.

I chose this hotel in Alice Springs to soak up the atmosphere of the real Outback with a room above the bar. And it was as advertised and I enjoyed the closeness to the outside bar complete with a loud argument towards the end of the evening. The hotel is a bit dated but this is part of the experience....

I couldn't find much positive to say about this place, the person I checked in with was gruff, the room smelt of cigarette smoke which has been covered up with some sort of fragrance and the double mattress looked so used and sunken in the middle that I slept on the single bed.

We stayed for 4 nights in July and when we checked in the staff made us aware we had booked a room over Uncles bar and this was likely to be noisy on a Friday evening. It was no problem to be moved to a different room and pay $5 extra per night. The room was spacious and well equipped... More

Stayed at the diplomat for a 2 week work trip the rooms are great even when staying in the budget rooms out the back, I mean there's a bed and a ceiling and the showers are hot, but if you want fancy taffeta lace curtains and a tray of activated almonds next to your bed, then head up to the...

Ok if your a group of tradesman or a traveller. Very noisy at night. My room was clean. But my friends room was dirty, especially the bathroom. To be honest I'm glad my company paid for this. On the up side, the bar and restaurant down stairs called uncles tavern is a great place to get pissed

We found the location to be great, the rooms are clean and comfortable and the staff welcoming and friendly. Uncles bar and restaurant is right on site but the close proximity to many more eating places is just so convenient. Just minutes walk to Todd Mall and two other shopping centres, the Diplomat is the ideal base for all sightseeing... More
