This hotel is strangely configured with a walk through the underground car park to get to the restaurant but the room was clean and the staff were very pleasant. It is right in the heart of Alice Springs and you can walk everywhere.

Right in the center of town near the Todd Mall, which was very convenient. We only stayed one night, but it did the job. The available laundry washer and dryer was greatly appreciated as we had just been to Uluru and several days of hiking, so we had laundry to do! Newer rooms in the back of the hotel are... More

Just an in town motel with pretty old and basic rooms. Be warned…a large number of their rooms are just caves with no windows other than the sliding glass door you enter into. With low occupancy when we were there I have no idea why they would have ever considered putting us in one of these rooms. I had to... More

Located on the main street. The hotel is badly designed. To reach our room we had to pass the garage, use an old elevator and walk through lengthy corridors. From our room we could open the windows to another lengthy outdoor passage that did not look nice and welcoming. The room was shabby and dull. WLAN worked during night in... More

The only thing this hotel/motel has going for it is its location in the heart of Alice Springs. I picked it primarily for the location, but also because of positive reviews on Trip Advisor. I was very disappointed. As stated - the only good thing about this property is its location. We arrived early and were unable to check in... More

We booked in to the Aurora over Christmas as we thought it would be the ideal spot as it was in the heart of Alice Springs and be a good base. The room was very average and wasn't serviced every day. This was odd because on our first morning (Christmas Day) we were woken by housekeeping to service the room... More

Stayed 1 night stopover. Room not to standard of other 4* we have stayed on Trip. No hot water so could not have a shower. We complained and given a 1 way airport shuttle for 1 of us for value of 16 dollars. This means with discount we had to pay 114 dollars for a room in which we could... More

I stayed here one night in December 2014 prior to going on a tour. It was comfortable basic and had very good air conditioning. The staff were very friendly and helpful. There is a very nice restaurant closeby and it is less then a 2 minute walk to the main street for shopping. It is very easy to organise a... More

I stayed at the Aurora for 3 nights and found it conveniently located with friendly staff. I had booked ahead via Qantas site and took my copy of the booking which was made 3 weeks in advance but the hotel had not allocated my room. After a search on their computer they eventually found my booking. It is very tired... More
