3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Centrally placed with in easy walking distance to malls etc.Room was spaceish with a large bathroom, but broken tiles on the wall at floor level. Very noisey natives in the rooms along from us, when I spoke to staff about it was told they couldn't do anything about it. My best advise is to stay some where else.

I arrived and my room was not ready but they were able to keep my bag and my room was ready an hour early. My room was very dated and a bit smelly but it's cheap and clean so wasn't too bothered. I was however bothered by the noise outside...All Night! I did not sleep at all and tried to call reception but no answer. In the morning I went to reception and they moved me to a much quieter and recently refurbished room which was so much nicer. I got breakfast delivered on the first morning but did not bother again as it wasn't great but I am fussy. The food at uncle's tavern next door was also a bit hit and miss but cheap and they are friendly. All in all for the price I was very happy and the staff were great and resolved my issues.

For the price, this is definitely a great hotel for its location and room size. Right next to the town centre, food options are definitely more than what I saw around some other popular branded hotels further away. We had a queen bed and an additional single bed in the room so this will be ideal for families with kids too. Check in and out was smooth and easy and the airport shuttles/bus tours all drop you conveniently at the door too. Was there for two nights and highly recommended.

The most central location in town, meters from Todd Mall and all the restaurants/pubs/supermarkets. There is a pool, and parking. Rooms kept clean, had a nice fridge. Staff helpful. No complaints, if you are looking for a place in town (as opposed to the chain hotels outside of town), this is a very decent option

Stayed here for three nights in Feb 2018. Allocated room 218 which is in a quiet downstars location and one of the furthest rooms from reception and the nearby 'Uncles' bar. Adequate room, effective AC in the 100f heat. Good wifi. Shower problem was repaired speedily (next day). Tea and coffee with mil as well as ironing facilities. Didn't use the small pool. Alice is a very small town which can be seen easily within two hours on foot - Anzac Hill lookout, Flying Doctors, The Residency and the Railway staton all easily walkable within 10 minutes from the motel. Small shopping mall located nearby for food and liquor. Motel secure at night, controlled entry and locked gates. Shuttle bus from airport drops off and picks up at the motel and can be arranged at reception - $16.50 AUD one way. Good bar next door that serves affordable beer and food, open until 1am. Hotel wifi works in there. Good stay, affordable.wouod stay again.

Right in the middle of town. One night work stay on a Sunday night so it was very quiet. Not sure that would be the case every night as there is a bar on the property. Basic room but comfy bed and a refurbished bathroom. Not the greatest place I’ve ever stayed at but good enough.

It is in the middle of everything. Shops, supermarket. There is a pool. And guarded parking which i found nice. The room is basic but nice and clean. Shower yes. A tellie. Airco and the beds are soft and comfy

We stayed two nights at the Diplomat. It is in walking distance to the supermarkets and restaurants. Really convenient The staff were helpful and friendly and on the first day gave us 2 vouchers for 2 schooners of beer worth $7,50 each! Free Beer! So we checked out then travelled the next day - then checked back in and got more free beer! Other than the beer it’s still a good, cheap place to stay (it is off season however and don’t know if is cheap in the high season ) and convenient to everything.

Stayed here for three nights whilst fitting in a trip to Uluru. Room sizes were very good and we had plenty of brew kit. Rooms are air conditioned and have a decent fridge and bathrooms have complimentary shampoo, conditioner, hand lotion, shaving cream and shower gel. Swimming pool too and a washing machine and dryer across the road which we made use of. Good bar next door that does decent grub and it is very well located for shops and the post office. Friendly staff and decent free WiFi. Would be more than happy to stay here again

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.
