The Elkira Court Motel is a short walk away from the downtown area in Alice Springs. The swimming pool was large and looked inviting but unheated and chilly about 19 C in April. The staff were really friendly and helpful, storing our luggage and refrigerated food during the day while the room was still unavailable. The room was older with...

Elkira, Reception / Reservations at Elkira Court Motel, responded to this review

Hi Sarah, It's positive to hear that our staff lived up to our expectations, and were friendly and curteous. We do have different room grades, some more recently renovated than others, if we have the opportunity in the future - we would love the opportunity to impress you with another room. Thank you for your feedback! Kind regards, Stephanie Dominguez

You get what you pay for. No good judging this against 4* or 5* hotels. Not the best aircon. Limited views. But comfy bed, decent bathroom, friendly reception and clean. Stayed for 2 nights - going to Uluru and on return from - and would have no reservation about going again. Good location for the shops etc

Air conditioned but the machine is unbelievably noisy and we could not sleep. The toilet also ran water continuously. Sheets didn't look clean. Reception staff not friendly. We stayed here for the location but with the benefit of hindsight should have stayed at a newer motel.

Following our 4x4 week through the red center way, we decided to stop over the last night at this Best western before our flight out on NT. Very good service, very clean rooms and bathrooms, and it is walking distance from The Overlanders steakhouse (which I strongly recommend to any meat lover) The cooked breakfast was great, the coffee awesome...

This room was described on WOTIF as a 'bungalow'. This is completely misleading. This is the smallest hotel room I have ever seen in my life. There was nowhere to put my suitcase and the only way to move around in the ensuite is to close the door every time. The ensuite is about 3 foot wide ! This was...

Very spacious, comfortable and clean room, with good facilities for the rate charged. Good central location. Very friendly and helpful staff, including making phone call to local bus operator to find out why the expected pick up a 6.35am still hadn't arrived by 6.50am. Only downside was other guests smoking on balcony which led to smoke being present in our...

Had a ground floor room. Didn't use any facilities - just somewhere to sleep. Brought own breakfast into the room. French windows onto a terrace beside the carpark. Everything we needed and easy to walk to town centre (4 minutes) and supermarket (3 minutes). Service pleasant.

Elikra - Best Western Alice Springs is a good deal if you book ahead - about $139 a night. it is well locate don Bath St on the edge of Alice's CBD. But hey - you're not here to shop, you're here hopefully to see Australia's stunning red centre. So as a port of call, Elkira fits the bill just...
