When you come into town after a long stint out bush, it's great to feel like you are being looked after. The lady on the desk when I checked in made sure that I had a nice quiet room. Then off to that long awaited beer. There's a great bar on site that many locals come to. Dinner? There's dining facilities in the bar and the prices are good. I wanted a pizza and there is a pizza place almost next door. Most places are within easy walking distance, the Diplomat is right in the centre of Alice Springs. I would definitely recommend.

WiFi is a must!

My room 406 had no WiFi availability. Staff casually told me "Yes those back rooms dont pickup the signal. You can go to any of the common areas such a reception and use your computer." Not good enough in this day and age and for $90 a night. I should have been told at book in that this was a problem.

Very Pleasant Experience

The booking made online turned out to be just what we wanted, a modest motel that was comfortable, the bed was very comfortable, the staff were helpful and pleasant and we were happy with the budget part of the motel. We would strongly recommend this to others intending to travel to Alice Springs.

I was impressed with this hotel/motel. On arrival, I was greeted in a friendly way. The rooms were good. The hotel is in town and only two minutes walk to everything you need. Good value for money. Highly recommend.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

This hotel is right in town and will save you lots of time as staying at another place out of town will take up lots of time as many of the tourist accommodation place are located a "good walk" from the town centre.

Great improvements

It was great to see that anumber of cosmetic changes had been made and since my last stay the menu has changed and is very much improved. Would highly reccommend as a great central location for travellers with a great menu at reasonable prices.

A great place in town

Great place in Alice Springs to stay. The staff is great to help out with anything (booking, advices, other request). There is a nice pool outside. It's close to everything (it's downtown). If possible ask for a room facing the pool instead of facing the street. The room is great, there is plenty of space, plus there is a fridge to keep our food if we want. We we 4 people in the room and it was spacious.
