This is a beautiful hotel, with a quiet, chic sophisticated presentation, located opposite the Adelaide convention centre and main railway station, a hair's breadth from the cultural precinct, from the beautiful river and parklands, restaurants, cafés and shopping precinct. The service was excellent especially at the concierge desk and the valet parking desk. The staff were very willing and took... More

The staff were exceptionally attentive. Jimmy the concierge was outstanding and made our stay. The breakfast is healthy, fresh and well worth the price. Overall, a great hotel close to the Casino, the Art Gallery, the Museum and shopping in town. There are restaurants and cafés all within one block. Very convenient.
