We have just returned from a 4 night stay with Norh Adelaide Heritage Group at their Buxon Manor, North Adelaide premises. We stayed in the Musica Viva apartment. A delightful, antique filled beautiful old serviced apartment. All facilities were present in a large property. It was comfortable and conveniently located to city and transport. We loved our stay.

A charming property but be very careful while booking to understand the layout of the "apartment" you choose. Could be in for a rude surprise! We were two couples booked in what was billed as an apartment. Turned out two be two rooms with one common bathroom and you had to go through the master bedroom to access the bathroom!... More

This manor house is divided into several apartments. Each are quite different from the others. We stayed in The Butlers. It is in the middle of the Manor house so the lounge was dark with little view. The bedrooms were nicely furnished with antiques. The bathroom was enormous. However, the bathtub was in bad need of replacing. Showering in it... More

Having spent 176 days in hotels across Asia during 2014 it was a pleasant surprise to stay in a place that has so much character and style. Everything was perfect. I was in Adelaide for business but it felt like I was relaxing on holidays. Highly recommended.

Ever wanted to experience how the Australian better off of late 19th century society lived? Then this is the place to go. Ok, the first owner, a politician, neither had fridge nor wifi, but maybe sat on the same sofa as you will, ... .

Although not a hotel Buxton Manor is certainly a boutique residence with very helpful staff readily contactable by telephone. The rooms are furnished with art work and lovely old furniture. It is a little dark inside and there is some aircraft noise but not during the night. Highly recommended for a short stay or romantic interlude

What a lovely and delightful place. Located in the North of Adelaide and close to everything, this old manor has all the facilities you could ask for with old world charm that is becoming harder and harder to find. If you're looking for a special experience in Adelaide, look no further than Buxton Manor. Recommend highly.

Very interesting place with period decor and an olden charm about it. Stayed in the Butlers Manor for three nights, with other friends staying in the Garden Loft. I mat have been a little paranoid but I always felt like I was being watched - which left me quite unsettled staying there. My friends in the other apartment stated they... More

We have stayed in a number of places in Adelaide over the last couple of years and wanted to splash out this time, so booked the Buxton given the positive reviews. We stayed in the George Lowe Esq apartment and was greeted with a lovely bottle of SA red and some suitable classical music on our arrival. Like others have... More

Why would you stay in a hotel when you can stay in this lovely piece of history. Well ok, it doesn't have room service, but you're only a few blocks away from convenience stores so an great stay away for those that like self contained or just head of to one of the many restaurants nearby. Rooms are far larger... More
