Diplomat Motel

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Good rooms, great staff and very central to Alice Springs. Saturdays and Sundays exceptional bargains in Uncles Bar ($5 beers and burgers), so it is well worth a stop. Some rooms have been upgraded and these are excellent. Overall a good place to stay

This is superbly located within walking distance from the Todd Mall and the shopping centre. Plenty of alternate eating places within cooee and comfortable setting. We will be back again the next time we pass through.

Found this late at night when travelling home from Darwin. Great central location with good clean spacious rooms. Secure car park which is important . Friendly no hassle check in / out . Did not have breakfast due to early start, but what I seen of attached bar restaurant seems okay. Good value will stay again

Basic place to stay but best service so well looked after thank you to Melissa. Had friends stay who had an issue she could not have been more helpful. Thank you so much. Helpful staff make it nice place to stay.

I've stayed here a couple of times now, mainly due to its central town location. Very close to all of the shops and restaurants in the centre of town, as well as Todd mall. For the price it is good value. Very basic rooms but clean and functional. Friendly staff. .Only downside is it can be quite noisy outside at night certain times of the week due to some out of town locals coming in for gatherings. Great little pub attached with pizzas and burgers as well as drinks. Make sure you book a table early however as can get quite busy.

The diplomat motel Alice Springs on arrival you are greeted by a great team who were friendly, helpful and welcoming. The rooms are clean and functional, beds comfortable and the rooms are big enough not to feel to crammed into a space. A plus is the secure parking for cars, busses, trucks, campers or caravans. In the heart of alice springs, close to everything. Highly recommend.

We had a nice relaxing stay here at the Diplomat. Staff were welcoming and helpful. In a great location, short walk to a shopping centre. We are both females in our early 20's and felt safe walking around this area in the afternoon. Room was clean and tidy, beds were great! We both had a fantastic sleep. We had tea at Uncles Tavern - fantastic!

The room was nice & tidy enough but not clean - had a funny smell like old body odour - unpleasant. Free wifi was good. Reception and bar staff were friendly & very pleasant to deal with. Uncles Restaurant directly next door had a cheap meal (burger & chips) $7.00 which was good. Sticky date pudding was not heated though, staff in kitchen claimed it was. Very telling that the ice cream on top of dessert did not melt. Not worth the $8.00. Kitchen staff attitude lacking compared to the bar & reception. Would not stay here again neither would I eat at that restaurant again. My husband on the other hand was happy to stay again, but would not eat at this restaurant again. Tarif was $119

Very clean, nice and quiet rooms. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Nice and central to everything. Restaurant next door that you can charge to your room and get 10% off Food very reasonably priced and generous.

Rooms were clean and nice, cheap price, in the centre of Alice Springs. Parking is secure inside the property with gates locked at night. We didn't hear any noise from the tavern on site either. There was some traffic noise which would depend on the room you get but to be expected for cheap accom in the city centre. Hot showers, good water pressure, comfy beds. $105 for a double room on the weekend.
