    The rock wallabies.

    We only stayed one night then went elsewhere. The blankets in the room were dirty and smelly. It was not a pleasant experience.

    The View from our room. The kitchen gear provided.

    Shuttle bus only runs Monday to Friday & it's a long walk to town or a taxi ride. 7 days a week would be good.

    They probably need to replace some of the mattresses.

  • Family with children

    Comfortable beds, good bathroom and the inclusion in one room of simple food preparation and microwave cooking facilities.

    In another room a few days later, the microwave cooking equipment was absent.

  • Single

    Excellent value and clean and comfortable

    TV signal was absent so could not watch TV even with staff help!

    Convenience. Booked on an Outback Track Tour who collected from hg at start of trip. Had stayed before and found suitable

    Staff unhelpful with minor problem but next day same staff member very helpful. Found Tavern entertainment a bit over the top. Otherwise fine.

    Excellent value for money, clean comfortable accommodation close to airport

    Heavitree is quiet, clean, very conveniently located in relation to Alice Springs airport, about 8 kilometres away. Very friendly staff. Rooms are well appointed with everything available for a brief stopover stay, but better than most motel accommodation. Convenience store and dining facilities adjoin the accommodation.

    Loved being able to feed the brushtail wallabies. Liked being away from the town centre.

    The linen had a horrible smell as did the room. We aired the room to rid the smell but obviously unable to air linen - made the sleep quite uncomfortable. The lady I was travelling with had trouble breathing during the night as she didn't want to inhale the smell.

    While not 100% efficient with oufr booking, the reception staff were friendly and helpful. It is also very close to the hill that is Havitree Gap and each evening wild black-footed rock wallabies come to be fed (special food availablefor $1 a bag at reception. They are a delight and make you realise you're in the Ausie oubck.

    Diffiult to reach town without a car - they have 4 shuttles a day not at the most convenient times. And the tavern is a very long way from the motel section - a bit dfifficult at night.

    Rock wallabies coming down in the evening. Budget meals were good value.

    Road and rail noise

  • Older travelers
    5.4

    The room was clean and a decent size.

    This is a very basic motel type of place and too far out of the centre for a short stay.The food in the Tavern was basic at best and very poor in reality.

  • Family with children

    The reason I picked this hotel was one review stated that the black footed kangaroos come down the mountain at night and you can feed them from your hand. That was great and we loved it. They were so cute. We also got each a coupon for a free drink if we bought a meal in their restaurant. This was the best priced meal in Australia during our whole 2 weeks and it was delicious.

    When we got our key to go to our room, someone was already in that room but the problem was quickly rectified. We saw a mouse walking on the floor behind the reception area and mice outside but not in the room and it was very clean.

    Friendly, clean place. Good location. Easy to book in, change bookings.
