Diplomat Motel

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Well priced motel, spacious clean rooms and right in the town centre. Close to shops and amenities. Has a hotel/bar at the front that serves good food. Staff provided helpful advice and service. Will definitely return.

Staff are incompetent or unethical; my card was swiped and was told that it hadn't. So they swiped another card.Double payment was made,on being asked when i got the messages from the bank, they initially denied it. Only the next morning they admitted it & reversed one.

Good price for this simple, old-style but pleasant motel. Good position close to the Center. Nice and helpful staff. Big pool, spacious and clean room, the only problem was the noisy drops coming out of the tap, that could not have been repaired during our stay, although we claimed for this problem.

I stayed in Alice for 4 nights on a business trip and the Diplomat was a simple and convenient stay. The room was neat and tidy but nothing fancy. Soap is provided by wall mounted dispensers (not by separate bars or small containers) but that's ok for me. I was only there in the mornings and evenings but I don't think its a place you would lounge around at on holidays (which is fine because Alice has plenty to do and see).

Stayed here for the first time and what a pleasant surprise. Rooms are neat & tidy, reasonably priced. Located in the heart of alice springs with a short walk to Todd Mall and the main shopping center. Would definitely recommend this place.

Extremely cheap, polite staff, clean sheets, clean pool and a great bar next door. We stayed for 2 seperate nights, one before our tour to Uluru and one on our return. 208 had good disable facilities.

Everything promised came with a friendly smile. All of Alice Springs amenities were at our doorstep but there's scant Vegetarian fodder though you'll still get a feed. Access to all the tourist spots so the Diplomat is a great place from which to form your base.

Clean rooms, polite and helpful staff, very good central location. The pub attached “Uncles Tavern” provides consistently reliable food. This hotel could improve with new mattresses on the beds as ours dipped in the middle and our air conditioning dropped water.

Stayed overnight enroute to a camping trip to Darwin. Accommodation was conveniently located and easy to walk to collect supplies. Allocated room was quiet and clean and tidy. The tavern cook eventually provided a gluten free meal after offering a steak with “you can have tomato sauce”... Seriously??I had to plead to be offered a suitable steak sauce in replacement of a gravy. Honestly it shouldn’t be this hard to get a GF meal in Australia. The cook and facility management need to be more considerate of dietary requirements. The attitude I received when speaking with the cook was appalling. Accommodation 4/5, meal at the tavern 2/5.

It is good and worth the price.Rooms were serviced every day and everything was very clean.Free parking, town centre is just few steps away.There is a good bar downstairs (but it was not noisy at all).Can only recommend this place
