This is one of the few properties in Alice Springs that has cook in room that is also near the Casino and convention center avoiding the downtown area yet being very close to downtown. It is informal with a laundry room available and good places to eat within walking distance. The place itself is well maintained, but is more toward DIY trips rather than the big hotel chains next door. If you are looking for a typical big city resort, this isn't it. If you are looking for taking care of yourself in a comfortable convenient location, it meets these well. Locals use it for weekend parties for family enjoyment, so be prepared for some children in the pool on weekends.

The chalets are nicely laid out. In the morning the bird life is great- exuberantly noisy!

The fact that we had our own bungulow style room with a small kitchenette. It was dated and could use a face lift. We had a small front lanai, the pool area was really nice, albeit small. biggest issue is no restaurant, have to leave the property.

  • Liked: Staff & service
  • Disliked: Amenities

Enjoyed having a veranda to sit out on in morning and evening. The property has a resort/camping feel to it. The room/cabins were pretty basic with just bare necessities. Couldn't get cold water out of the tap for drinking. Nowhere comfortable to sit. Our room had a queen bed and a twin. The twin was totally unnecessary and could have been replaced by couch or comfortable chair and table.
