We booked the lodge with bookings. We were looking for a budget place. The price is really good and the lady from the reception is a woman that understands and loves her job. Very kind!!! We had a long journey from holland and she gave us a free upgrade to a room with airco and we could use it straight... More

I made the mistake of having my wife book a hotel (and I use the term loosely) room for us for a one night stay before leaving on the train tomorrow. We just checked in a few minutes ago and I am completely disgusted with her choice. I am typing this from our room which bares a remarkable resemblance to... More

I stayed two nights in this hotel and found it very convenient. Price is reasonable. Located 5 minutes from the central streets, very near is the tram stop, you can use it to approach Glenelg and all city center. Staff was very responsive and polite. They upgraded my room for free. Wifi was perfect. The minus is that there are... More

Everything was just ok. The checking-in was fast and efficient. The room was small but there was a clean bathroom, air-conditioning, fridge, kettle, TV and FREE Wi-Fi in room! The walls are thin but we had a good night's sleep. Near Adelaide Market and Chinatown (good and cheap food in the food court). It was ok for a few nights... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in February 2014…I would not think that a place like this would ever exist… I was on the way from the airport to the hotel when received a message from the bank: my credit card had been charged in advance (!!) for the whole staying (why?...) though the terms of booking were ‘pay at the...

In the room there was also a fridge, kettle, free coffee and tea, cutlery and plates. The bathroom was small but sufficient with clean towels provided. However, no body wash or shampoo. Shower was clean. In the... More

Thank you, Norine M, for your kind review! We wish we have more discerning and fair-minded guests as you! We are a modest hotel striving to provide honest-to-goodness value for money. Your comments about providing body wash/shampoo are being studied seriously with a view of doing that. Thank you for helping us raise our stand of service. Paul. More

I stayed two Saturday nights whilst enroute through Adelaide to the Flinder's Ranges and back. This place is exceptional value for money. The ladies on the counter go out of their way to help you - providing bus information, booking taxis, holding luggage etc. The rooms are very clean with a fridge and crockery provided. You also get tea /... More

Dear c13ett, We apologise profusely that your stay was not as you had expected. We have investigated into the missing curtains (every window was furnished with curtains). They have since been replaced. As for the rubbish bins, they were in a private area sublet to longterm residents who were responsible for their own rubbish removal. As a result of your... More

We spent 2 nights in this hotel. The staff is friendly. The lodge is well located in the city and the room clean. There's a fridge in the room and the possibility to use a shared microwave. Free toiletries and tea stuff. There's the heating in the room!
