Foundation to trip of a lifetime

The trip I undertook (OzTours Kimberley and Tanami) was top notch. All that one could ask for to see the top end of Australia, WA and some of NT. Staying at the Aurora was easy to be picked up. I resort to cheap meals so cannot comment on in house meals. Staff were helpful at reception with any hassles with tours I had. Special thanks to Anna and Marta. Rooms at ground level near reception have quite a lot of early morning noise as customers get their bags rolling. Further away they are more quiet!

Great Location but...

The best of this hotel is the location right in the city centre. The whole hotel needs a serious refurbishment as everything has the charm of the 70s. The way from the room to the restaurant for breakfast leads through an awful car park with massive air con compressors blowing. The service is also very bad. We had a small towel missing when we checked into the room, and when we called reception they told us to come to reception and get it ourselves. We were quite speechless. The carpet in the room was very dirty and had not been vaccumed recently as small metal bits were lying around and were hurting the feet! The complimentary wifi had speeds of around 0.15 mb and ping times well in excess of 1,000 ms, i.e. useless!

Aurora Alice Springs

I stayed one night at the Aurora Alice Springs during the heavy rains. The hotel was OK but it smelt of damp and was a bit ordinary. I would not stay there again

Not 4 Star, Basic, but comfortable

I was expecting a 4 star hotel. My first room 1411 was quite big and in a quiet part of the hotel...my second room was 1006 which was very small and in a very noisy area on the first floor right in the middle of a walkway and near the entrance to the car park. The rooms were not uncomfortable, but the decor was tired and the hotel was lacking in wow factor. If you are after a basic, comfortable hotel for a reasonable price, but nothing special this one's for you. Located conveniently right in the middle of town on Todd St Mall.

Resting Nest

Inviting staff were very informative. After a tiring flight the room was spotless with adequate comfort. The restaurant had good variety and tasting food. Given that the hotel was quite full the atmosphere was relaxing.

Great Location

We were pleasantly surprised to find the location was within walking distance to everything we wanted to do. The restaurant was straight through the secure car park and from there we were able to access the main street without walking around the block. The rooms were lovely and clean and nice décor and extremely quite. We had the bottom level which is convenient and were glad we didn't have a room that were on the upper levels as we had to drag our bags out early to catch a bus. Overall we really enjoyed our stay here
