We stayed at the Aurora in early July 2014. The rooms were clean and very comfortable with reverse cycle air con. The restaurant the Red Ochre provided really good food and a good selection of wines. All round a good hotel well located in Alice Springs

The Aurora was a clean and comfortable hotel, with friendly staff, great location and a good rate for a basic room. I stayed one night prior to walking on the Larapinta trail and then again for one night on my return to Alice Springs. They happily stored excess luggage while on the trail which was a big bonus. I was... More

We recently spent three nights at the Aurora, as a walk-in. It is located in a good location, directly onto the Mall, and was warm (it was freezing weather) and comfortable. Reverse cycle air-con a bonus. A gripe...the dryers on one level not working when the hotel was very busy. There were many disgruntled travellers trying to dry washing, especially... More

We booked a room pre and post trek tour and found the Aurora to be absolutely fine. It was clean and comfortable for three travellers. No frills. All the staff we encountered were very accommodating and helpful.

We have stayed at the Aurora 3 times, the first in August of 2013, January 2014 and recently in June. Twice a deluxe room and once in an Executive. Big tip, don't spend the extra bucks on the Executive room, yes they are a little more modern and updated but the money is hardly worth it for just a balcony,... More

The Aurora is located in Todd Mall, and puts you walking distance to any local attractions you may want to visit. The staff are beyond friendly and will do anything to make your stay more comfortable. The lobby is very well appointed. The elevators are a walk from the lobby. The rooms are completely tiled and like other people have... More

Family of four stayed in family room at end of camping holiday from Darwin to Alice. Front desk efficient and friendly. WIFI worked absolutely fine in our room - updated all of my hotmail and facebook photos easily. Everything was clean and the beds were super comfortable, with reverse cycle aircon making room very comfortable on a rather chilly night... More

Overwhelming smell of bleach is very conducive to a romantic start to a red centre holiday trip. A very springy mattress- old furniture that has clearly outlived its use by date- not a single painting on the wall in a extra spacious Deluxe Room and it is clear that the operators are very keen on revenue but don't give a...

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
