Haven't been here for years & years. Invited to join the relies from Pt Lincoln for dinner tonight. Had a succulent Fillet with Diane Sauce & sneaked some S&P Squid from my friend's meal ... both delicious. Friendly, fast service in great surrounds.

Built sometime in the 50's, but the rooms have been modernised and are fine if you don't expect granite and marble. Lots of off street parking is a plus. Staff are lovely and helpful and it's value for money. If you are after a 'resort' go elsewhere (and if a flight of stairs is an issue) but it's a central... More

When we first arrived I thought OMG, but the rooms had been modernised and it was quite comfortable for our needs for the time that we spent in Glenelg to attend a sporting fixture. This is convenient to the hub of Glenelg with the Watermark Hotel located on site as well. Plenty to choose from to eat at this venue... More

A great place for food and drink. We were staying close by and the Watermark quickly became our local at the end of the day. Staff very courteous and friendly and whilst we didn't get to the buffet, the meals were generous and tasty. Nice atmosphere as well. Good spot.

we stayed a night at the Watermark recently in the 3 bed family room. Was spot on , best family room we came across on our trip. The feed at the buffet in the pub itself is a cracker, not to be missed.

My friends and I found this place a couple of trips ago and we have been back last trip to Adelaide. It is very easy to get to, being a one block walk from the second last tram stop at Glenelg. We didn't stay at the Hotel/Motel, but we eat at the marvelous Smorgasboard/Buffet that is available there. The selection... More

We stayed recently as a couple and were pleased with the friendly receptionist, however most things about this place are odd. The artwork in the room was questionable and the shower was dirty,the grout in particular. We were kept awake by the noisy neighbors and rowdy people (mainly kids) who were from the restaurant that is part of the facility.... More

I heard about this hotel from friends who visit the hotel quite regularly and who often dine out on the smorgasboard on offer. They recommended I visit the hotel and were adamant I would be more than pleased with the selection of food on offer and the cost of a meal. I truly was pleasantly surprised. A vast array of... More

This has been a very difficult review to write. The motel, as a motel, was a superior experience--a large comfortable room with a sofa, an individual balcony and a good (for Australia) selection of TV channels. It is set well back from Anzac Highway, so road noise is not a problem (though if the wind is from exactly the right... More
