Convenient location, close to town centre, walking distance to many of the places you will want to visit. Well maintained and serviced rooms. No noise disturbances and comfy bed for the night. Stayed here twice and each time I was located on upper floor, looking out at Todd River with a great little balcony. Staff friendly and I encountered no... More

We spent 4 nights at this hotel and were never disappointed with our choice. We were so pleased that we chose this hotel when we saw how far out from the main CBD some of the other main hotels were. We could walk to most things that we wanted to see and our late arrival meant we could have easy... More

We stayed 1 and then another 2 nights over a 7 day period. It is very central, the access to Todd Mall is very good. Reception is nice, staff are very friendly and willing to help if not always 100% on top of things. Rooms are simple, clean and nice enough for the price. If you're happy with a tidy... More

The pleasant reception area belies what is actually a rather ordinary hotel, although the location is convenient for exploration of central Alice Springs. Most of the rooms are arranged on several levels around an open courtyard, served by a single lift that was apparently last refurbished in the 1970s and can take several decades to arrive. My room was clean... More

Aurora Alice Springs I think is the only hotel in central Alice Springs. By going through their restaurant you go into the Mall, a street of cafes, art galleries and other shops. Not to far away is a covered mall with a supermarket. This hotel has a pleasant reception area which looks out onto a small courtyard area filled with... More

The second time I have submitted a review for this Hotel, for some reason not published. Ghastly experience. Dreadful swimming pool with four pool side chairs for entire guests, awful astro turf surrounding the pool like a nasty carpet. Staff very indifferent. Room was clean with enormous beds and nice bathroom. We had to kick our heels for three hours... More

My daughter and I stayed at the Aurora Alice Springs two nights pre tour and one night after. The first night we were placed in a room near reception which backed onto a noise driveway. The room was very basic. There was a party going on in the main street on the Saturday night which was very noisy. They stored... More

We have just arrived back from a holiday in Australia. Have been to many places and stayed in many different hotels. We found most were off good standard and well located, but have to say the Aurora Alice Springs was very welcoming and Peggy and Rea the two lovely girls on reception went above and beyond the call of duty...

Purely functional as it's in the heart of town. The restaurant is also ok. But otherwise a depressing little hotel. Rooms clean but ugly and noise and smoke from common areas found its way into my room in early a.m. Reception nice enough but about as enthusiastic as the hotel - as in, not really. Was a practical choice for... More
