I stayed for two separate nights at the Festival. The first night was awful. I had a triple room - it looked more like a storage room with various furniture thrown in. It wasn't really dirty, but nothing above floor level seemed to have been dusted for years. The mirrors were greast etc. Based on that experience, I'd have given... More

My wife and I had a very unhappy and stressful stay at this hotel following my discharge from a long stay in hospital due to a serious heart problem. The TV in our room didn't work properly. This would not normally have bothered me, but my health problems meant I had to spend a lot of time in my room.... More

Warning. The price offered in the Internet may not be the price they demand when you arrive in the hotel. I had booked a room four weeks in advance through the hotel chain they belong to (---). This is the address written on the manager’s business card, that is, no third party. The booking was confirmed after I had paid... More

We stayed four nights at Festival and three nights at Mercure Grovenor. Mercure Grovenor was a little bit more upmarket (a little higher priced - no breakfast included) but the rooms were very similar. The room at Festival also included a single bed. Both hotels had their own restaurant. Our accommodation at Festival included a continental breakfast.

Ideal for holiday maker and business traveller looking for less-expensive accommodation. Friendly & courteous staff. Situated right in the middle of the city centre. Walking distance to the Railway station, State Library & Museum (a must visit..!) Adelaide University etc etc.....Bus stop is right opposite the hotel entrance. Cannot complaint at all on the room conditions. I enjoyed my stay.... More

I really like Rendezvous hotel, big room/delicious foods and excellent service. And the rate is only 150$/night,just the same price with Chinese five star hotel. As to the festival hotel ,my feeling is it's really a motel... More

Admittedly we made a last minute booking but i would have preferred to be turned away than stay in the room we were given. My husband, myself and 3 children were crammed into a room all together, the bedding was dirty, there were someone elses dirty socks under the bed with the dust bunnies, when the beds were made they...
