The excellent staff make this hotel move from a just above average conference facility to an outstanding one. Nothing is too much trouble. They were unfailingly polite and efficient from the front desk, to waiting staff, conference manager and long suffering chef who accommodated some crazy dietary requirements. Conference room with natural light was a definite plus, and location opposite... More

I have stayed at the Sage (previously Grand Chifley) on numerous occasions now although I have to say this last trip was a little less enjoyable as the room we were given was a little outdated. The curtains were threadbare and the amount of poo on the balcony was pretty terrible. Apart from those things, the room was clean and... More

I'm not one for believing extremely negative reviews and for the life of me can't see how this hotel has received them. On arrival the staff were exceptionally friendly and even upgraded my room. My room has a very comfortable bed, spotlessly clean and is nicely furnished. Breakfasts are fine for a buffet style with sufficient choice. It's in a... More

Stayed here on a quick business trip and wish it was a bit longer. I booked a standard room and was upgraded to the king room when I arrived. The room was good, not 'oh wow!' but good. The king bed takes up a large percentage of floor space, but the room was spacious enough. There was a huge TV... More

First impressions when I entered my room were not good. The curtains were stained, the bird poo on the balcony (which I have no doubt had been there for YEARS) was enough to make you want to heave, and upon checking my son's sheets (prompted by reading other disturbing reviews) I was horrified to find dried boogers on them and...

Comfortable convenient stop if driving through. Heaps of places to eat within short walk. Hotel staff were courteous. Beds comfortable. Free parking was one of the reasons we chose to stay. Good value for money paid. Fuss free. Big park across the road if you need a walk.

Couldnt fault the staff, they were great, especially in the restaurant. I realise you're not paying top dollar here but a few things annoyed me. Mould in the shower tiles, window was really dirty, inside and out - you could see it had been wiped over but the cloth had just smeared dirt over the glass. The bottom of the... More

We have stayed at Sage when it was Grand Chiffley and were back on the weekend for first time since the name change. It is good value for money, rooms are well presented and bed is comfortable. My only complaint would be the poor lighting in the bathroom. Worth a try if you are visiting Adelaide. It's quite central to... More

Sage Hotel is situated on South Terrace on the edge of the city centre, walking distance of the free city tram. Great children's playground across the road. Staff friendly and helpful. Great buffet breakfast but and also order from menu. The restaurant offers great evening meals. Do offer bed and breakfast deals.
