Stayed there the 2nd time. Service much improved. Good rooms, spacious, nice bathrooms. Some rooms look out towards the road - some noise throughout the night. Better to ask for one facing inwards. Nice pool is great in the afternoon heat... Though close to the city ctr it is not advisable to walk there.

Flew in from Darwin for a one night stay before leaving very early for Ayers Rock. Not much to see in Alice Springs but this resort hotel was very comfortable with a clean room and good shower. Air con worked well. There is no porter service so you have to take your own bags to the room. If you are... More

In all fairness, we had to do an overnight in order to catch our flight the next day to Ayers Rock so our expectations both of the town and the resort were minimal to begin with. In both cases, it turned out to be a mistake. Two of us had standard bedrooms, which had sliding glass doors only, with somewhat... More

Booked in at the Chifley for an overnight stay after a VERY long days drive.

A lovely surprise, this was booked purely for an overnight before we boarded the Ghan, but it turned out to be a really nice stay, helpful staff, comfortable room and a really nice meal in the Barra on Todd Restaurant. We should have had another day.

small hotel but never the less had everything weary traveller needed for a comfortable stay. Within walking distance of Alice Springs and the rooms are separate from the bar/restaurant/check in area which made them quiet. Good bar and lovely breakfast

Room and bathroom rather old and not so pretty. Full of mosquitos and the air conditioning didn't work in the room and it was so warm. Just for a night is ok, but it's not a really place to be asked resort. It values less than 4 stars.

Reception and restaurant staff was very friendly, cleaning service prompt. The room was on the small side, the bed a bit too soft; the air condition worked well. The bathroom with separate shower and amenities was good. The menus in the restaurant were ample and the food was well prepared.
