The location is the best aspect of this hotel, but everything else was decidedly meh. The hotel itself is a bit awkward in layout with the restaurant being on the other side of a covered parking lot. We ended up with a ground floor room looking out onto an alley which was a bit strange. Maybe the second floor rooms... More

Have stayed here before on numerous occasions. Central location right on the Mall in the CBD. Like most accomodation in remote Australia its in need of a refurbishment. However the rooms are clean and tidy. Parking on site but car bays are tight for 4WD's.

Spent a couple of nights at the Aurora prior and after a trip to the Red Centre, which is what I guess most people do. This place is all about location, it's right in the middle of town, backing on to Todd Mall. There are more expensive & I'm sure better quality hotels on the edge of town but I'm... More

There’s not much to detain you in the Alice, but the Aurora provides a perfectly comfortable night’s stay right in the spookily empty centre of town, and it’s but a short walk to the handful of heritage buildings and various supermarkets. It’s basically a slightly scruffy motel. There’s a just-OK restaurant, the Red Ochre, at the back, which is part... More

Stayed two nights at the Aurora. Yes, it's a very simple hotel, but it met our needs. It was clean and comfortable. The staff was helpful, it was in the middle of town so you didn't need a car, and the best part - it had a coined washer and dryer. I was taking a long vacation touring around Australia.... More

Enjoyed my stay immensely. Great relief from the heat. Very comfortable room with excellent restaurant and service. For a native of Melbourne, the prices here for both accommodation and food are just great value. The restaurant has a most enjoyable 'outside' option with a taste of passing street life. People on the reception desk were efficient and cheerful. Unreserved recommendation... More

Stopped at this hotel for one nigh on route to Yulara. Room adequate though had to carry the bags up a flight of stairs to get to it. Good central location for walking round Alice. Tried the pool and could not believe how cold it was! It really was like ice; surprising as the temperature was 40degrees C. All in... More

Sprawling hotel, staff on front desk we're welcoming but the room was a little box with patio doors onto an outdoor corridor. We ate breakfast the next morning at the hotel, it was reached by crossing the car park and was not very well signed. The experience was poor, the food was cold and unappetising, we had an early morning... More

Fine for stopping in Alice for a day or so, but very basic.The place could do with renovating, shower cubicle is pretty grim, but it has a great restaurant and is in a great location. The staff were very nice though.
