Great place for a short stay in Alice Springs. Beware that the rooms are somewhat worn out, and have breakfast at a café in town if possible. The breakfast buffet is overpriced, with a low level of variety and quite bad quality.

This hotel is a mid range, but nice clean place, good location to walk into downtown Alice Springs. We had good food at the Barra restaurant serving fish while the Todd river has no water in it. Service was on the slow side.

The Todd River has flowed at least a dozen times this year and its certainly an amazing sight actually like a miniature tsunami during the initial journey flowing through the dry river beds.

Friendly staff welcomed us after a warm trip getting there. After 29 degrees outside getting into a spacious airconditioned room was a pleasure. The bed was big and just soft enough to sleep comfortably. A nice pool and a good restaurant make this resort a pleasure to stay. We will certainly come back to this oasis in the hot northern...

Decent hotel with a very nice pool. Walking distance to town to get pizza etc. and pop/soda. Town is very small so most people are there for transit purposes only. The price is certainly right for what you are getting and needing.
