Poolside beautiful, Saturday swim up bar divine. Walking distance to town, the Barra fish and chips sublime.

The hotel is nice and in a very convenient location close to good walking tracks and the center of town. Breakfast facilities are basic without a nice expresso coffee (only the cheap press button coffee machines) and overpriced.

Thanks for your review, Daniel. We are pleased you enjoyed the hotel, but sorry that you weren't advised of the Barista coffee available at breakfast. We hope to welcome you back to Mercure Alice Springs Resort.

Everything in this hotel was spot on, the major thing that let it down was the mosquitoes in the room. We think they were coming through the vent in the bathroom. We stayed in room 215 and our friends were a few rooms down and experienced the same thing.

Nice place to stay, great food and room was comfortable and clean. The overall appearance of the place including dining area was very pleasant and a resort like atmosphere. The breakfast buffet was nice excluding the sausages, probably the worst breakfast sausages we have had, but everything else was nice. We would stay again and have breakfast but NO sausages.

Convenient location, complex a little dated, but main concern was the pool water was too cold to swim in (all observed guests over the 3 days stated it was "freezing") - why is it not solar heated???

Water leakage from shower recess to bathroom floor was a problem. Also dripping tap in the basin needed attention.
