Aurora Alice Springs I think is the only hotel in central Alice Springs. By going through their restaurant you go into the Mall, a street of cafes, art galleries and other shops. Not to far away is a covered mall with a supermarket. This hotel has a pleasant reception area which looks out onto a small courtyard area filled with...

The second time I have submitted a review for this Hotel, for some reason not published. Ghastly experience. Dreadful swimming pool with four pool side chairs for entire guests, awful astro turf surrounding the pool like a nasty carpet. Staff very indifferent. Room was clean with enormous beds and nice bathroom. We had to kick our heels for three hours...

My daughter and I stayed at the Aurora Alice Springs two nights pre tour and one night after. The first night we were placed in a room near reception which backed onto a noise driveway. The room was very basic. There was a party going on in the main street on the Saturday night which was very noisy. They stored...

We have just arrived back from a holiday in Australia. Have been to many places and stayed in many different hotels. We found most were off good standard and well located, but have to say the Aurora Alice Springs was very welcoming and Peggy and Rea the two lovely girls on reception went above and beyond the call of duty...

Purely functional as it's in the heart of town. The restaurant is also ok. But otherwise a depressing little hotel. Rooms clean but ugly and noise and smoke from common areas found its way into my room in early a.m. Reception nice enough but about as enthusiastic as the hotel - as in, not really. Was a practical choice for...

Booked in months in advance after confirming a trek to Larapinta. This hotel was recommended by the Trek Larapinta group. On arrival I thought the location was good for a single female traveller being close into town. However I was allocated a room on the ground floor with windows that backed onto the underground carpark. It was gloomy and there...

We stayed at the Aurora for 4 nights during our visit to The Red Centre on two separate stays. On the first occasion we were given a room in the non-refurbished section. The room and ensuite were spacious with lots of modules for storage. Only complaint was that the bed did not suit my bad back. Otherwise excellent. On the...

We stayed here overnight with our teenage kids after 3 days on "safari" touring Uluru and surrounds. Our room was quite large, with a double bed and two twin bunk beds. Though right off the laundry room, our room was quiet and adequate but not fancy. Reception was helpful and pleasant. The pool was tucked in a corner of the...
