Liked: Property conditions & facilities
Disliked: Staff & service
It seemed to cater reasonably well to indigenous clients. But the floors were really dirty even on the first day in both apartments. My feet never get that dirty in my home where we have floorboards and i hardly ever wash the floor. There's a drought but do the cleaners ever change the bucket water between units?

Most welcoming
Room was quiet and comfortable, the only downside was the old sitting area lounge/divan. At reception we were met and greeted by owners or staff who were very welcoming and took the time to explain Alice Springs and the accommodation, the gates, the room etc etc. A great shower in room.
