It was quite pricey for the standard. Im sure there are other nicer cheaper options in Alice Springs. We would not stay again.

Felt sorry for the stretched and over worked staff, I would love to see the management cut back availabilities and let the staff just focus on the quality of fewer rooms.

4/10 Fair

While the location of the property and the size and cleanliness of the rooms were pleasing, there were numerous things which overall made our stay disappointing. While checking in, we were told that the pool bar was being renovated and was out of action (the pool is also a lot smaller than it looks in photos) and that housekeeping is only provided for stays of greater than three nights (our stay was for three nights). With no housekeeping, by the time we checked out we had dirty towels which had not been replaced, had run out of toilet paper and soap which we had to purchase ourselves and had bins overflowing in the room. When first entering our room we also found that the screen door to the balcony could not open. After multiple calls to reception, a long wait and visits from two different staff, they did manage to get the door open but we were told not to close it again as it will jam. We were given the option of moving to another room or waiting for the door to be replaced the next day. We opted for the latter as we wanted to be close to family in an adjacent room but this never happened. Another strange thing with the room is the lighting. There are no light fittings in the ceiling in the main part of the room, just lamps. The staff there were pleasant, helpful and did their best but it was obvious the property is chronically understaffed. Like many businesses, it appears that they are having difficulties recruiting staff to pre-COVID levels which is a shame.

Reception and management staff were apologetic and helpful but short staffed. We waited an hour on arrival for a room as they were short staffed for housekeeping. We were switched from our booked room to an alternative of same level which had not been made up. We were eventually allocated an upgraded room at no extra cost and 2 free drinks. The room was not serviced at all after our first night. We had to advise reception that we had not been registered against the room we were eventually allocated as we discovered when we booked in for dinner. Dinner was lovely but was not what we ordered, and no apology was offered. I thought a tariff reduction would have been appropriate when we were paying a reasonably high rate at a luxury resort. There were some dishes outside the door of a room near us which remained there for the duration of our stay. Again staff were trying their best and we understood their predicament, but we don’t feel we got what we paid for.
