The property was in the centre of Alice Springs. We didn’t have any hot water for a shower. The staff are really friendly. The rate was inexpensive. Would stay there again.

I love the Diplomat, the hotel has great food, all of the staff are super friendly and go out of their way to help. I was fortunate enough to be changed to a ground floor room after a long day of travelling. I will definitely be staying here again.

Motel centrally located. Staff pleasant and polite. Room clean but bathroom bin full on arrival. Only very basic tea coffee sugar - 3 of each. Air Conditioner leaking water down wall & flooded bedside table - not a recent issue evidenced by staining and lifting laminex. Also it was so noisy we were kept awake at night. Maintenance man made several attempts to fix (less noisy on last night). We were compensated with the offer of a breakfast voucher for one morning. Generally staff seemed pretty disinterested and unapologetic. There was an offer to move room after first night but this did not come to fruition. Perhaps they were full. Motel serviced by Bistro for dinner & cafe for breakfast/lunch. Both fairly average.
