After an appointment on 16/12/2013 in Adelaide we chose the Adelaide Royal Coach for our night accommodation. What a magnificent location with ample parking at the rear. The inside is spotlessly clean and well air conditioned but needs urgently renovating. After booking in we went upstairs to our room where we had an entry problem because we were new to... More

While a event were ongoing in Adelaide all roads to the hotel were closed for some hours. We arrived to Adelaide in rush our and had no access to the hotel. Non information was given to us about that, though I reserved a room only a day earlier. No email, no telephone call, and believe it or not: no excuse... More

Not a good experience. TV not working properly, no air conditioning. Room in poor state. Whole building needs renovating. Really quite poor. The only thing I will say is the staff were friendly and attentive.

We stayed overnight at the Royal Coach and had no great expectations after reading some reviews. However, upon arrival we discovered that the TV did not work on one channel at all and instead of having pay TV as promised, instead we got Analogue Pay TV which was fuzzy and not in widescreen format. This is because instead of digital... More

We booked into this hotel for Valentines Day, which was also my husbands birthday. Wotiff.com.au show it as 4 1/2 star rating so assumed it would be a reasonable standard. Not so. The grime in the room was terrible. I rang and asked if a cleaner could come and just clean the areas nearest the bed, so we could sleep... More

We only stayed one night here, having come to Adelaide for a funeral and the location being the most convenient. The place is badly in need of updating. The air conditioning was very noisy, sounding like heavy rain. It could not be turned off as temps were in the low 40s. Had a great view of a brick wall. I... More

Arrived exhausted after driving from Melbourne. Stained carpets, tiny rooms and dirty shower areas. Limited menu. Very noisy air conditioners. Even though I changed rooms, I still didn't sleep well at all over the three nights due to the industrial air conditioners pumping all night. Ringing reception at 1.00am resulted in the resturant air con being turned off which a... More

Stayed here New Year's day when there was only one staff member to look after Reception, bar and restaurant. Couldn't fault the service as Kieran moved easily between the three jobs, unflappable, friendly, efficient and with no sense of being harried. Can't praise him high enough. The standard room was clean and air conditioning worked well on a sweltering day.... More

Very friendly and helpful staff, spacious clean room with fridge, TV and tea/coffee facilities. Furnishings and décor a little tired, but perfectly adequate. Pleasant location in a leafy Adelaide suburb.
