We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here as our first stop in Australia. Our apartment was perhaps a bit dark, but was spotlessly clean with all essentials provided. Not much of a view from the balcony as it faced the side of the motel, but that didn;t really bother us. The huge bar and restaurant area were excellent, and the buffet... More

Great location, short walk to Pier and Glenelg beach / shops. Clean and tidy with simple breakfast of cereal/toast/juice etc. Excellent service by reception staff who were very accommodating with allowing us to leave our luggage for a couple of hours after checkout so that we could look around without having to drag out suitcases.

We were in Adelaide for the long weekend and decided to stay in Glenelg rather than the city. It was a great decision as we love to be by the sea and Glenelg is a great little area. The Watermark had everything we needed for a couple of nights and was the perfect location as it was right opposite the... More

My family and I drove up from Melbourne to Adelaide we wanted to stay at the Glenelg beach so we booked a room for a week at the Watermark hotel. As soon as we got there I was put off by what I saw it looked completely different to what it does in the photos. The first two nights we... More

I wouldn’t normally respond to negative posts as I believe that our business benefits from all types of constructive feedback, but since this person has drawn such a long bow I would like the right of reply. At The Watermark Glenelg we provide 3.5 star motel style accommodation (as assessed by AAA Tourism). Our location is close to the beach,... More

A family Birthday Lunch at the Restaurant. This place is designed for families and it's "pay and serve yourself" is ideal for fussy family members. They can get what they want and as much as they want. The food is average as catering for a great crowd must be difficult but the food areas were kept clean and replenished so... More

We stayed in the family room of the Hotel for 4 nights. The room itself was good. Plenty of room, good sized kitchen, bathroom and bedroom. The location was great. Short walk to the beach and Jetty Road. Negatives: The family room is right at the entrance of the hotel. You have a constant flow of cars and people moving... More

We ate dinner in the restaurant which was excellent. A little porch which was very pleasant for a quite drink and relax after a long drive. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Short walk...

We, four adults, stayed in the 3 bedroom unit, downstairs. We stayed for one week. The room was clean and serviced everyday. The beds were comfortable. There were extra heaters, blankets, pillows and towels. Towels were changed everyday. Walking distance to the beach. The staff were friendly and helpful. Wi-fi was possible in this unit but was available using a... More

What a lovely place. The reception staff were all very friendly. The rooms are ideal for a one nighter or longer. They are clean comfortable. Would recommend this place if you are looking for somewhere central to stay in Glenelg. Walking distance to the tram into the city as well as walking to local Coles Supermarket. Can be a little...

Sorry but I cant recommend this one. They have been very creative with their photos by not showing any peeling paint, chipped laminex or faded curtains as they are hard to miss once you get there. I guess it depends what you are expecting. On the plus side the room is very clean and the bed fairly comfortable so full... More
