Nice Accommodation and Good Value

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 6, 2011

I am not sure why it is called the Airport Motel, since it is not that close to the Alice Springs airport. The name does not matter though. This is a nice place to stay at a very good price for Alice Springs (80 AUD). The owners, Steve and Karen, provide excellent service and you will not find nicer people anywhere. The Airport Motel is an older property and used to be part of the Gap View Hotel when Prince Charles and Lady Diana stayed there in 1983 (the rooms are marked with plaques). Steve and Karen are relatively new owners and are gradually upgrading the rooms. The large, clean, air-conditioned rooms with ensuite bathrooms already have a small fridge, microwave, and an electric kettle. Other facilities include a really nice pool and BBQ area, guest kitchen, guest laundry, outdoor sitting areas, and secure parking.

The location on Gap Road is in the south part of town about a 30 minute (2.5 km) walk from the Todd Mall. A big plus is the 421 Bar Bistro in the Gap View Hotel next door. It has excellent, local-style food at reasonable prices. In fact, after I told the VT group about it, the whole group ate there several times. In addition, Piggly's (a small market with a deli) is about three blocks north of the motel on the same side of Gap Road. However, the Gap View Hotel also has a drive-through bottle shop. This attracts some undesirables at night, so I would not advise walking in the park across the street after dark. All-in-all the Airport Motel is a comfortable, friendly place to stay in Alice Springs.

Directions: On Gap Road in the south part of town about 2.5 km (30 minute walk) from downtown and the Todd Mall
