We booked a Deluxe River Gum for 2 nights, but it was very basic. The best thing about the accommodation over all was the automatic icemaker in the hallway!
The restaurant was pretty bad overall. Slow service, freezing room with no atmosphere and poor food.
We also tried an aboriginal concert nearby for dinner the next night, the food was pretty basic but ok. the concert not up to much at all. (go to one in Queensland if you have the option).
Alice springs overall is a very basic town, not easy to get good food, its easier to self cater for lunches etc and get out and explore. The walk up the hill in Alice springs is nice, good views.
The main reason we went there was to do the balloon trip. It was amazing, great people, wonderful stars, beautiful views and great if unusual breakfast. Worth getting up at 4am.
I would stay here again as there are not many other options, but never, never eat here.
