“Great value for money”
Reviewed May 11, 2014

We stayed here for two nights and I was a bit hesitant after reading some of the reviews.
Yes it is a older style hotel but our room was very spacious, the staff were all helpful and friendly, even checking us in to our flights home.
We stayed in a deluxe room that was very quiet and had a lovely little balcony.
The room was very clean but the bathroom does need the shower and bath to be re-siliconed, it has seen better days.
We ate breakfast in the restaurant and had dinner in our room and couldn't fault the food.
The Hotel is an easy walk into Todd Mall and is in a nice quiet location.
Overall all the hotel is good value for money, it is in a remote location and our room was around $200 a night. Just don't expect the Grand Hyatt for the cost of the Chifley

Room Tip: The deluxe rooms are worth paying extra, ours looked over the Todd River and were very quiet

Friendly staff, nice looking palm area where we stayed, looked a little dated but is comfortable enough, no lifts so you need to lug heavy bags up and down stairs. The stair wells are quite dangerous if you are tall so watch your head coming down. The restaurant had a nice tasty menu and the buffet breakfast is your standard buffet with a range of food.

After a few days on the road, Chifley Alice Springs was a breath of fresh air. The rooms were clean, comfortable, and spacious, and the beds were lovely and soft. We were delighted to note that the pool was shaded, something which seemed to be lacking along our travels to that point, and the staff were friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay there again!

It's a bit dated but the hotel is situated in a good location close to the centre and with easy access.
The rooms are basic and a bit dated but there's nothing wrong with them. I only ate breakfast there and it was 'ok' nothing special.
Good price and reasonable value for money, I'll stay there again.

This resort is conveniently situated only 5 minutes walk from the centre of Alice Springs. The staff were friendly and very helpful. My room was spacious with everything I needed. Room Service and Laundry Service were also available. I ate 2 dinners in the Barra on Todd Restaurant both of which were excellent, served by friendly and knowledgeable staff. Buffet breakfast was good.

My second visit and very happy. Friendly, professional and very helpful staff on reception. An early checkin was arranged for a group of us on a busy weekend and very much appreciated. The breakfast hours are very accommodating for early and late risers. Loved their lunch and dinner menus over the two visits. Comfy bed, quiet property, parking close to rooms.

Tiny cramped bathrooms, small sink, little countertop space, low water pressure in shower. The beds were too short. The breakfast buffet was only good. They have tried to blend in with the surrounding desert environment, which works, but the rooms need to be updated.
