        Peaceful location, love the wallabies!”

        Close to airport and main part of town, helpful staff

        heavitree gap is an unusual place. it is sort of rustic but a good match for its setting. there is a great pool, tavern/casino and the best thing of all...the daily feeding program for the colony of rock wallabies just behind the hotel. you could buy a bag of feed for $1aud and beginning about 4:30 in the afternoon, they come down from the mountain to eat. they are quite tame, and i was actually able to feed one of them by hand. it grasped the sides of my hand with its tiny black paws and munched away, much to the delight of other guests, who captured the moment with their cameras. if you are staying in alice springs, most definitely book the heavitree...very reasonble rates and an experience you won't forget.

        Clean, updated, good view.

        we originally booked in for the kitchenette room for 3 adults and a baby, but the room was a disappointment - old, not so clean, rusty shower, no real kitchenette. however, we were moved to the hotel rooms and these were a good surprise for the price. they were very clean, updated and quiet - the same utilities as the kitchenette, except for no sink. i would definitely book into one of these rooms again - definitely not the kitchenette rooms. definitely need a car, as distance is not good for walking in the heat and dangerous at night to be walking in alice spring.

        Adequate facilities, but bad room service”

        Opportunity to see rock wallabies

        The Heavy Tree Gap Outback Lodge turned out to be the best value for money when we needed a room while doing some renovations to our house in Alice. The room was adequate and had all the facilities needed. However, it had a strange smell to it (maybe from previous smoking?), but the worst was that the hotel expects you to wash your own dishes in the bathroom sink. We left our dishes standing on the bathroom floor for 3 nights and the room service worked its way around them.....very strange. It's nice to watch the rock wallabies coming down to the car park at night.

        Nice hotel with a good price/quality relation”

        Nice pool with baby/toddler section. Rock wallibies coming down the mountain at dusk.

        we had a good stay in this hotel, friendly reception and fine clean rooms. each room has a small terrace where you can sit outside and depending on which side of the hotel you are on enjoy sunrise, sunset or the rock wallabies coming down the mountain. these lovely creatures can be spotted at dusk from nearby and even be fed with special food which can be purchased at the reception. it seems to be eco-friendly and with respect to nature. although feeding wild animals remains controversial. the location is nice and secluded, a bit out of town. you will need a car to get around. furthermore they had a nice pool, with plenty of shade, in a well kept clean and green enclosure. the pool featured a baby/toddler section which was perfect for our 1 year old to play in. she enjoyed it very much and had a great time. the only 'disadvantage' was a large group of schoolkids who stayed in the hotel and took over the pool.. the restaurant/bistro didn't look to appealing to us, so we had lunch and dinner elsewhere. supermarket around the corner with some basic supplies. i would recommend it from the experience we had here.

        pool, wild wallabe feeding, grocery store on site

        this was a great resort to stay at, a nice warm pool, large, comfortable room, well equipped, feeding the wild wallabies at night was a bonus. the only gripe i had was the free shuttle, it would drop you off downtown but not necessarily come and pick you up if you didn't reserve it to do so. we got stranded downtown one evening because of that.

        Poor hotel in unattractive area. Forget it!”

        The kids were happy to feed and touch the wallabies... no other good point.

        Was probably the worst hotel in my holiday: very dirty and smelly room, many spots on the carpet and dirty cutlery in the kitchenette. I know that is the center of Australia and animals are everywhere, but the huge cockroaches that came out of the shower caused a sleepless night for my kids. Air conditioning system was noisy and not really efficient. Good swimming pool, fast wifi, lot of parking space. The food for the wallabies supplied by the reception desk (1$) made the day for my kids: was good to see them happy feeding and cuddling the animals there. But still, it's a place I don't want to return.

        Okay hotel but location a little far from town”

        Good value, air con

        Hotel was acceptable and certainly good value for the amount of money you have to pay! The place is a little out of way and you need to catch a taxi to get into town (approx. $20) Also, the blankets were really tough and thin and generally cheap. But again, you're paying so little for the night, you could easily overlook its faults.
