    I choose to stay at white gum motel because I am always made to feel welcome whenever I have stayed there and, the rooms are always clean. You are treated like people and not just another paying customer.

  • Group of friends

    The quad room was large, clean and comfortable. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. They gave us suggestions of things to do and see in Alice Springs and even called a taxi for us after checkout so that we could get to the airport. The airconditioning was great, and the kitchen was useful.

    It's a shame we only had one night as we couldn't take advantage of the facilities.

  • Couple

    Lovely motel great facilities, lovely pool and BBQ area where u can relax in the evening with a few beers! We had a double room equipped with a kitchenette which was great as we made our own breakfast. Lovely staff!

  • Older travelers

    The welcome and the information about the city. The barbeque and swimming pool were welcome additions to the spacious rooms.

  • Group of friends

    Laundry facilities and a communal washing line for drying clothes. Lots of space to spread out gear (we were preparing for a long hike). Fairly close (10-ish min walk) to Todd mall.

    No shampoo provided.

  • Family with children

    The proprietor's were so friendly and helpful. The beds were comfortable and room was very clean. Just a 10 minute walk from the town centre and most sight-seeing interests. I would definitely recommend this accommodation and use it again.

  • Older travelers

    The manager and his wife were very welcoming, helpful and friendly. The accommodation was clean, the room was large enough to be comfortable. Would have preferred a queen size bed rather than a double, however, it wasn't a big issue. Having kitchen facilities was a bonus.

  • Older travelers

    Location, can walk to the town centre with ease. The proprietors Ann and Ray went out of their way to ensure that we had a good time and made us very welcome, giving us lots of good tips on what to do and see. The motel itself is regarded as budget, is clean and tidy. It is budget price so it is what one would expect from budget accommodation. As we spend most of our time exploring and only sleeping at the accommodation it was very adequate. We enjoyed our stay there.

    It could do with revamping. If you were staying for any length of time would suggest you ask for the "warm" side in the winter months and the "cool" side in the summer months. If it is for a short stay we wouldnt worry.

  • Family with children

    Location was perfect and a priority for us, close to swimming pool so we could walk there and back after our daughter's competition over the weekend. Also accessible to town centre.The short 10 -15 min walk was enjoyable as weather was cool. Therefore, as no hiring of a car was needed for our stay, our expenses were kept to a minimum which was important to us. Hosts were friendly and ensured our stay was comfortable. Even called with a posy of flowers for me for Mothers Day. A nice thought and gesture when you are away from home on the day. It was also a bonus to have cooking facilities eg microwave in the room also which allowed us to cater for our own meals instead of having to eat out. Everything we needed was there. Room was clean, comfortable and had lovely hot showers as needed. We would definitely chose this motel again when we next stay in Alice Springs. Great location, value for money and friendly hosts, while I believe they are new, are very willing to make sure your comfort is a high priority. They also took an interest in how my daughter and some other guests children swam and their results at the competition. Some photos were taken to have as keepsakes. Well done, Ray and Ann, great hospitality made for a good experience!!

    Nothing comes to my attention that we would like to see changed.

  • Single

    The owners were extreamly helpful and very nice. Clean basic room, old decor and basic facilities Comfortable enough for a buisness trip

  • Couple

    Good motel

    There was not free wifi as Booking said!

  • Group of friends

    The owner could went out of his way to be helpful to us - a great welcome and very helpful advice.

  • Single

    The motel was clean, only a 10 minute walk to the centre of Alice Springs and the manager/owner was friendly and helpful. It felt like a family-run motel with assistance at hand if I needed it. The weather was very hot so I had a swim in the pool which was clean. All in all, White Gums was very good value for money. I would stay there again.

    Nothing. It was all good.

  • Couple

    Large room with kitchen (very useful).Very clean with very affordabile rates

    Old fornitures

  • Family with children

    The hotel owner was very friendly. As we have a one year old daughter, we need a hotel that had bacis kitchen facilities and a port a cot. this hotel provided us with both. it was also close to town, and very quiet.
