Stayed here one night before and after the Uluru tour. The pros: convenient location in the center of town, close to restaurants and shopping, super friendly receptionists, room is clean and of a decent size, free wifi, large luggage storage area. The cons: elevator was a little bit of a walk from the lobby through an exterior corridor. My room... More

We booked an economy room one night before we left on our tour, and a deluxe room with free breakfast the night we returned from our tour. The rooms we got were old--old beds, old closets, old bathroom. However, they were clean (a little too clean--it overwhelmingly smelled of cleaning supplies). The wifi does not work in the room, but... More

We stayed in Aurora Alice for 3 days and really enjoyed ourselves. The hotel is in the best possible- it's restaurant entrance is from Todd Mall, which had us concerned about possible noise, but there was absolutely none. The rooms were well ventilated, had clean bathrooms, ours being the last room, had a balcony seating to enjoy the sunrise/sunset. Service... More

Stayed here for 4 nights as part of our red centre experience. The location was good, the staff welcoming and helpful but the room was average. The main room was reasonably clean but old. Walls were marked, however the bed was clean and comfortable. The airconditioning was noisy particularly at night when it was cutting in and out. The bathroom... More

The Aurora is a nice hotel with friendly staff at reception. If you are leaving early ask for a breakie box from the front desk and put in your bar fridge in your room. Many tours leave Alice fairly early from the hotel. My room was big but the bathroom was a bit small and the hotel is starting to... More

Convenient and helpful place to stay, either side of our Larapinta trip. I liked refillable bathroom potions - no packaging waste. Good to be able to get early brekkie and store luggage. Very helpful staff.

We stayed at the Aurora for four nights. Three before going on to Uluru and one after. The rooms were clean and tidy, with the exception of a stain in the shower stall. When we complained about it, the staff scrubbed until it disappeared. The location is ideal, right on the mall and near everything.

This hotel was rated 4 star, but doesn't present as such. The staff are friendly and helpful and it's located right in the middle of town, very convenient. My first room was 4011 and was quite big and in a quiet area of the hotel. We returned a week later and were in room 1006 and this room was half... More

Stay: 4 nights early June, 2nd floor-deluxe room with buffet breakfast. Deluxe was stretching things a bit far I thought, but the room was large, sliding doors leading on to a terrace, table/chairs for smokers. Plenty of sunlight coming in to room. Decor is "well-used", bed: hard, but pillows comfy. There wasn't an extra blanket in the wardrobe, but it... More
