I had booked Alice Lodge Backpackers but the air con there had broken down there so I was sent ("upgraded") to here instead and I think I landed very lucky. The room had air con and a ceiling fan which made the 44 degree heat outside bearable at night, although I DID occasionally share the room with a couple of geckos ;( Cereals and bread were provided for breakfast in the kitchen and there was free (but unreliable) wifi. The pool was small but clean.
Gee the owner/manager is friendly, full of advice (and opinions) and helpful. Beware the promise of free transport from the airport: that IS the case, but you have to pay $15 for the return trip!
The owners of this hotel and Alice Lodge Backpackers also run Emu Tours so expect to have this operator recommended.
