Room was clean, great location right in the middle of town backing on to the city mall. Staff were efficient and friendly. Enjoy ed my stay and would recommend it for a short holiday stay. Restaurant attached to hotel was also quite good

Booked in months in advance after confirming a trek to Larapinta. This hotel was recommended by the Trek Larapinta group. On arrival I thought the location was good for a single female traveller being close into town. However I was allocated a room on the ground floor with windows that backed onto the underground carpark. It was gloomy and there... More

We stayed at the Aurora for 4 nights during our visit to The Red Centre on two separate stays. On the first occasion we were given a room in the non-refurbished section. The room and ensuite were spacious with lots of modules for storage. Only complaint was that the bed did not suit my bad back. Otherwise excellent. On the... More

We stayed here overnight with our teenage kids after 3 days on "safari" touring Uluru and surrounds. Our room was quite large, with a double bed and two twin bunk beds. Though right off the laundry room, our room was quiet and adequate but not fancy. Reception was helpful and pleasant. The pool was tucked in a corner of the... More

I stayed here for 2 nights and found it to be well positioned with access direct to Todd mall and the town centre. The rooms were a little tired and dated but overall clean and well presented. The staff were friendly and helpful and the house keeping staff did a fantastic job! keep it up guys. I will stay again.

This hotel is well located. The rooms are quite reasonable but the house keeping needs to learn how to dust everywhere and how to scrub a shower properly, The bathroom could use an update. The bottom row of tiles in the shower stall were fairly grubby. Windows cannot be locked nor is there a safe fitted to the room for... More

Situated in the vicinity of the town center. Walking distance to shopping, dining, supermarkets and entertainment. Stones throw to Anzac Hill. The reception was helpful. However, we found the room door lock stiff and the room heating inefficient.

The rooms could do with a makeover compared to other locations that I've stayed in around Australia. The food served in the restaurant is excellent, however breakfast service is extremely slow. Expect to hear the locals during the evenings to early hours of the morning.

The Aurora has a great location, right on Todd Mall. It's an easy walk to good coffee shops and reasonable restaurants, with Red Ochre at the Mall end of the hotel. The rooms are a good size for two people, with space to repack for a hiking trip without getting in each other's way. It's probably not the hotel to... More

Just a bottler of a location, right in the middle of Todd Mall. The rooms are clean and functional, the service great and the price was absolutely right. A great starting place, by the way for many of the walks around Alice Springs. Supermarkets, restaurants and a food hall are all nearby - as was Epilogue, a good place for... More
