This small hotel has a great pool scene and puts on a mean barbecue night*. Plus it’s very near the beach.
This family-run place has a 2013 Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor. It comes with a good-sized pool and a bar that does snacks during the day. And there are barbecue and quiz nights, too.
The nearest beach is less than 2 minutes away on foot, and you’ll find shops and bars just outside the front door. Plus, the centre of Kos Town is only a 20-minute stroll along the seafront.

A few steps from the pool is a quaint bar with a few stools, tables and chairs on the surrounding terrace. Here, you can take your pick from a selection of drinks or stock up on snacks.
Every week the owners host a barbecue with a twist. They'll give you an insight into their life down under with an aussie-style steak and rib barbecue evening.

"Friendliest hotel "
We have just returned from a two weeks at the alice springs. We had a great time and was made to feel very welcome by George, Barbara and Elias and the staff. Nice pool to relax by and garden area.Location is ideal for walking in kos town which is 15mins up to dolphin roundabout. Plenty of restaurants to choose from The Old River, Mummy's Cooking, Sunset Taverna, Efralipty ,Tsambala and many more to choose from. Also the steak night and the lamb night are not to be missed make sure your hungry tho because they are large portions. Thanks very much for a lovely holiday.More

Another fabulous holiday
Just back from another two wonderful weeks at the Alice Springs Hotel! This is our fourth stay here, and have already booked for next year. George, Barbara and Elias are everything you could hope for, friendly, game for a laugh, sense of humour and always willing to please. The food is wonderful, thanks to the wonderful Ellie, according to my daughter, her chicken nuggets are simply the best! The lamb night is a must, the lamb is out of this world, the best I have ever tasted. Steak night is another must. Also gives you a chance to meet the other guests. The rooms are cleaned everyday, always clean sheets and towels, if there is anything you need you only have to ask. Pool is clean and a lovely size, the garden too is kept in tip top condition. Counting the weeks till we will be there again!More

Just arrived back home after a week at Alice Springs with my friends. We had a fantastic time at the hotel which was a perfect location for the beach, restaurants and Kos town. The staff were all very friendly especially Elias who helped answer any questions we had a recommended some amazing places to eat and go for a drink. The hotel itself was regularly cleaned and had a clean pool which you could relax by during the day. It was a 5 minute walk to Lambi beach and a 15 minute walk to Kos town. There was a bike rental place over the road where bikes where â¬2.50 a day and a supermarket on the corner where you can buy anything at all! The surrounding area had a mixture of relaxing places and the busy atomsphere of Bar Street where we spent most of our nights. However on Bar street you often get harrased by the reps at the bars trying to lure you in with free shots and fishbowls and when you refuse they often get aggressive or pick you up and drag you. This is the one down side of a great atmosphere on Bar street and made us feel a bit wary to go anywhere. Overall though it was a great holiday and a great hotel and I would recommended it to anyone looking for a friendly family run hotel at a reasonable price in a great location! More
Gem of a hotel !
We have just returned from a week at Alice Springs. The hospitality of Elias, George and Barbara is probably the best I have experienced for some time. The hotel is clean and accommodation very flexible. We booked direct no probs at all. Top tip is to hire a bike - first hire place on main road, 1.50 euros per day. It is a 15 min walk to town and a 5 min flat bike ride,!! The rooms were well equipped with kettle, fridge etc, and the supermarket across the road has everything you need, with an astonishing amount of alcohol. We struck a nice balance of eating at the hotel and going out. All in all a great experience for our group and we would recommend to anyone!! Thank youMore
