Stayed here for a couple of nights with my Mum before she flew home, she loves this hotel. Thought Id go to check it out for future reference as I visit Alice regularly for work. Didnt really live up to the expectations I had in my mind but it was still alright. The rooms are not as stunning as I thought they would be for a hilton hotel (furniture is dated and paint could really be redone). Beds were really comfy though and we appreciated feather pillows! Balcony is nice and we had room 166 which overlooked a little pond thing out the back so it was peaceful.
The pool is really small!! I expected it to be huge from the photos but it really is not as grand as it seems. It was hitting 40 degs while we were there so the pool was always busy and there were lots of little bug/fly things dead. I really mean lots!
Wifi, dont even go there. Not included $27 a day. Crazy. We ate one night at the little bar/eatery there. It was ok but pretty pricey. If we knew the meals were going to be so big we would have shared one. Felt like we wasted our money as we werent able to even get halfway through our meals. Cut the size and the price back a bit. Also its a pretty fancy menu there. If you want something simple and cheaper walk up to the casino (5 mins) and order from the Casbar.
Im glad I got a really cheap NT resident special as I would have felt ripped off staying there at full price. Also it must be the choice of hotel for many tour companies so it is really busy and noisy (and this is off peak season).
The staff were really friendly I will give them that. It was nice to actually be greeted with a smile and welcomed with a cookie (although who wants a warm biscuit when its 40 degreed out?)
Not bad, not good - it sits in the middle.
