Booked by phone. Friendly no-fuss welcome.
Small room, bathroom newly tiled but still needed painting. Uncomfortable bed.
But...... It's a good stopover between Alice Springs and Tennant Creek, the people are very friendly, the meal was nice and inexpensive.
WiFi at the neighbours who also run an art-gallery.

sites are well laid out and large. They are just sand but remember this is in a desert. Prices are not cheap, but they have to generate their own power. The amenities are a it tired but the cost of $24 for two in a powered site is pretty reasonable.

For $12 pp for a night for a powered site you cant expect to much, and that is exactly what we got.
The sites are just red desert sand amongst sparsely planted small trees. Adjacent is a pub and eatery. We did not eat nor drink here because we have our own van with supplies.
The ablution blocks were dated and dirty. The use of washing machines is free, however the machines are in poor condition.
Overall a handy place for one night only, but don't expect to much.
The price of fuel is outrageous at $2.30 a litre for diesel.
The best thing that could be said about Aileron is the aboriginal statues on the hill and outside the art centre, well worth a deviation from the highway.

Aileron Roadhouse is a great outback experience. We had to do a job outbush so decided to make this our base. The rooms were clean, comfy and more than adequate - coffee and tea making facilities in room, clean towels, television that actually works (unusual for outbush venues) and lovely shower. There is also a playground (Swings) and a swimming pool. We also ate at the restaurant and they certainly know how to give you a good meal. Could not fault anything. Just remember, you are in the outback.....and this is luxury!!!

The drive through sites in the caravan park have heaps of room, enough to put the awning out and relax a bit in the shade. The aboriginal statues tower 17 metres above the hill behind the caravan park. Meals in the restaurant are good value for money and very generous sized portions. We were offered free self serve soft serve ice cream to take away with us after the meal.
The staff and managers are fantastic and make visitors feel very welcome.
