The staff are awesome, food is fantastic and the water pressure is great BUT... second time round I have a king size bed which is really two singles pushed together, cent even sleep in the middle because you feel the seam.

We chose the 'cheaper' room and it was comfortable and the staff were very helpful. The Diplomat is in a great location and it is very easy to walk to the Mall and other locations. We were lucky to be in Alice Springs while the big NATS rally was on so the city was certainly alive and the Diplomat balcony... More

Average room with a screen door which was difficult to close and almost impossible to lock. We came back from a day of sight seeing to find the room door open as the cleaners had not shut it when the room was cleaned.

Diplomat is a comfortable place to stay in the central business district of Alice Springs. Short walk to restaurants, Todd Mall and some attractions. Sometimes noisy at night with patrons returning from bar below.

This hotel is in the city centre - most big chain hotels are a little way out of town. Can walk within 5-10 minutes to all Alice Springs shopping and sights. Hotel is older style but has been nicely renovated. There is a pub at the front of the complex but I never heard any noise from it. Self service... More

Take care when you eat at Uncles Tavern. We had 3 different meals, bruschetta, hokkien noodles with tofu and beef ribs (the special). To say the meals were average would be over rating them. The ribs were overly fatty, not cooked enough to render the fat, the noodles lacked flavour and the bruschetta served lukewarm. I understand a tavern is... More

I was attending a conference out of Alice Springs, and wanted a simple room with no over-the-top luxuries. Although I imagine The Diplomat can provide this also, my choice of a single room with a single bed was the perfect solution for me. My only difficulties were: Although staff were friendly, there was sometimes a long wait at the reception... More

Travelling alone, I chose this accommodation because of the central location mentioned in previous reviews. It is across the road from shops, and walkable to Overland Telegraph Station, Botanic Gardens and ANZAC memorial. I also took note of the managers comments to book a room with a refurbished bathroom. I stayed there for 5 nights. The room was large, bathroom... More
