Ground floor staff need a re-training on customer service and attention. Front desk's only answer to anything is NO. We arrived at 10 and realized we were early for check in, but there's a nice way to handle this. They would not call/text us when the room became available, ad we had an international number?!?! No coffee/beverages available outside restaurant... More

Booked via wotif mystery room, so price was really good. Stayed 4 nights, 2 of which were public holidays. No room service on public holidays but fresh towels provided. Facilities fine, location quiet and handy via tram to most things. Staff pleasant. Better restaurants than this one within close walking distance.

I'm not sure about the rating of this hotel. What was disappointing was the very poor house keeping. I read that the manager is focusing on this. When is that about to start . If I was paying them they would no longer be working for me. The bed was poorly made coffee cups and glasses from the nights before... More

I stayed here on a Saturday night as it represented good value for money with free car parking. The room was clean and comfortable but I would not call it a 4.5 star but it was good value. I too encounter a pigeon on the balcony which was annoying but looking at the amount of poo out there it looks... More

Dear Nickel123 Thanks for reviewing your recent stay and providing valued feedback for us. I am pleased we are finally seeing some real improvements in regard to the pigeon problem with the numbers somewhat reduced now that we have many window ledges fitted with the spikes. We realise this will still not completely deter these pests, however it does mean... More

The positives: - the customer services was excellent - friendly, knowledgable and very helpful - room, towels and linen were clean - the beds are comfortable - there are many reviews about this hotel that focus on pigeons and the impact on the balconies - we did not visit Adelaide to sit on a hotel balcony, so this was not...

The Hotel is called the Grand Chifley, however it felt less Grand the closer I got to my room. Parking is first come first parked and I managed to get a park for each of the four nights.The entrance, foyer, restaurant and check in desk were all tidy neat and updated.The check in experience was quick and friendly. The lift... More

Dear Adrian M Thanks for the review on your stay - your comments are most welcome.

Similarly, storage of vacuum cleaners is one of the final duties and must be... More

I booked this as a wotif mystery hotel for $120 and when I found out the name of the place I was a little worried as I immediately looked it up on Trip Advisor and saw quite a few bad to average reviews. I needn't have worried as it turned out to be fine although I think calling themselves a... More

As someone who travels weekly across Australia for work, this is THE worst hotel in the county. Ie stayed here 4 times and every time it gets worse. Air con was broken twice, moldy bathroom, filthy balcony, hard bed, cheap renovations, appalling amenities. When I called about the broken air con (for the 2nd time) some kid came to the... More
