"Great stay!"

“We had a nice relaxing stay here at the Diplomat. Staff were welcoming and helpful. In a great location, short walk to a shopping centre. We are both females in our early 20’s and felt safe walking around this area in the afternoon. Room was clean and tidy, beds were great! We both had a fantastic sleep. We had tea at Uncles Tavern – fantastic!”

"A very Central Spot"

“Good rooms, great staff and very central to Alice Springs. Saturdays and Sundays exceptional bargains in Uncles Bar ($5 beers and burgers), so it is well worth a stop. Some rooms have been upgraded and these are excellent. Overall a good place to stay.”

"Clean, well situated & helpful staff"

“We stayed for two nights on our way home from Uluru and we found the hotel close to Todd Mall and many shops, restaurants, cafe’s and the city centre, The room was large and had a single and queen bed. The bathroom looked like it had been recently been updated and it was large and clean.”
