We were pleasantly surprised about O'Connell Inn. Reception staff obviously enjoyed their job (no, we didn't take the pillows when we left). The room was spacious but a bit tired. The location was perfect as were breakfast options. We'd stay again.

what a great find! only stayed 1 night but we were very happy with the fantastic service. you can't beat the location, and it was very good value for money. The rooms are very clean, neat and tidy. Walked to the cinema and even walked to the city for some shopping. Highly recommended if you want to be close to... More

The staff at this hotel are wonderful. Kate welcomed us ion arrival. The next day she was there to chat when we were having breakie. Other staff members were just as dedicated. Rooms were big. Location is perfect in northern Adelaide. Great restaurants within walking distance.

Just a lovely venue. Comfortable beds and a spacious room with all the amenities. Close to the action, but still really quiet. Was more than just a nice place to stay. They went above and beyond to make my stay really enjoyable. Thoroughly recommend staying here.

Stayed here overe Christmas 2013. Nice accommodation. Kate was a perfect host. It is in North Adelaide, so a nice stroll around North Adelaide. Bus stop across the road. Close to the City. Would stay again.

Having stayed at this motel several times, we have always been happy with the friendly atmosphere and were pleased to see this hasn't changed with the new owners. As usual, very welcoming of country people with a freshening up of the comfortable rooms. Walking distance to restaurants, boutique shopping, and a stone's throw from the cinema this motel is an...

The O'Connell inn is now owned by the same folks that own the Prairie Hotel in Parachilna, which is an iconic country pub. My stay was characterised by that country 'warmth' and personal approach. There is some great Aboriginal art for sale in the lobby and restaurant area which support indigenous artists and they have changing exhibitions. Several of the... More

Perfect for a short stay! Stayed for just one night recently and found the owner/operators lovely to deal with for the stay and chat with at the bar :-) the location is great with everything in North Adelaide in walking distance and free parking to boot!

I once lived in Adelaide, and recently returned with my family to visit relatives for the weekend. The O'Connell Inn is a fairly standard motel, maybe 1980's in style and not very recently renovated. But (of course) its clean, spacious, well appointed and inexpensive. It has plenty of free parking space - a rarerity in towns (we had a hire... More

Great location, close to lots of eateries and bars, spoilt for choice really. O'Connell Street is a great place just outside of the Adelaide CBD, but highly recommended for great resturants, a movie theatre and good shopping and a very quick taxi ride to anywhere. This hotel has very friendly management who know how to welcome you and quiet rooms... More
