This was a last minute booking for my wife and I to stay in Adelaide overnight. We wanted a spa room but that was booked out, the staff member told us the 'Superior Room' had recently been renovated and had a bath. We made the booking. On arrival there were no car parks so we had to park in an... More

Stayed with my two children for four nights. Decor a little dated but beds were comfy and the services were ample. The pool was warm - kids enjoyed that. We had the continental buffet breakfast twice whilst there - it was ok value for money. The staff were lovely - popping into the kitchen for more warm croissants when my... More

So my lovely wife decided to give me a treat for my birthday and books us room with a spa which cost over $200 a night (she is so sweet) so anyway as soon as we entered the room it smelt like mold or a old mans shoe from back in the 1920s. As we drew back the curtains and... More

The motel advertised itself as a hotel so it was quite a surprise. It is definitely a three star at most and not a four star as advertised on their sign out front. The receptionist was quite nice but not enough to make up for the room. The elevator getting to the rooms are old and very scary; constantly making... More

I stayed her recently while attending schutzenfest. i stayed in an executive room after reading comments on tripadvisor and was not disappointed. Pool was good especially after and during the schutzenfest. mini bar prices are high so i would recommend stopping by a bottle shop on your way

In my quest to find the best spa room in Adelaide for our weekends away, it was time to try the Royal Coach. This is an iconic Adelaide hotel and I was not sure what to expect. It was average. A bit shabby. Dated. Value for money, there are other places I would stay. Still, on a plus side, the... More

Could not recommend this place to anyone. Rooms had a bad smell and the bathroom roof leaked water whilst shower was running. Booked 2 nights on a booking website before we stayed & rang the Royal Coach to see if we could stay for the 3rd night. They didn't inform us the cost for the 3rd night and we presumed... More

Dear Truthhowitis I am very sorry that you were not happy with your stay, it is disappointing. Your reservation was extended over the World Cup Cricket event. The hotel had some late cancellations and extended your stay, at your request, all guests over this period were advised of rate, as it was a special event period and Adelaide hotel rates... More

My partner and I have stayed here a few times now and have never been disappointed. Parking is free and the city is only a 15 minute walk away through parklands where we saw possums, ducks and a really cool wedding. The rooms are spacious, the bed was comfortable and the spa was large and a great way to relax... More

We stayed here at the last minute as our visit was unexpected. Arrived 8.45 at night and staff made us feel so welcome. They kept dining room open for us so we could eat and not have to go out looking for food. Room was clean and tidy and had what we needed, although it was a little old. Some... More

We thought the hotel was a great place to stay. Only 1km from Rundle Street and the parklands are so beautiful to walk through. The Botanical Gardens are also close and worth a walk around. We did not have to use our car once while there. We walked to Adelaide oval to watch a cricket game and there are heaps... More
