The Norfolk motel is only a 5 min walk to a lovely beach. This motel is very clean with all that you need for a comfortable stay. We arrived in 42 degree heat and were greeted by a cool 22 degrees in my he room. There are hotels and the main Glenelg foreshore is only 5 mins away. Overall this... More

The Norfof was like stepping back to the 1960s.....but don't get me wrong. This is one if the best budget motor inns I have experienced. It has more than many motor inns costing twice as much, including a decent flat screen TV, kettle, hair dryer, toaster, tissues, soap, fluffy towels, air con, good shower with decent pressure etc etc....

I regularly visit Adelaide and the Glenelg region and have been staying at the Norfolk Motor Inn. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Recently I left some clothes behind and they were kind enough to mail them back to me at no cost they even washed them. Great service and a very kind gesture. I cannot recommend this Motel more...

I found this motel by chance .. Looking for something small and not too expensive with off street parking .. Not too far a drive from Flinders Uni .. However I was more than pleasantly surprised. The owners are friendly and the rooms are small, clean and very comfortable and but there is everything you need. The room was very... More

I was in Adelaide for a friends funeral, so this was pretty much a booking based on proximity to both the airport and the places I had to be. It was a pleasant $20 taxi ride from the airport, and, since I was arriving after the 8pm reception closing time, the key was left under the mat for me. The... More

Pleasant good value place to stay. Room was clean, with facilities for making tea/coffee, microwave, toaster and fridge. Walking distance from beach and Jetty Rd. Staff friendly and welcoming. Good advice regarding available tours.

I like to be fair with my reviews. And to remember to mention the positives of places I've stayed at. Sometimes it is very hard. In the case of the Norfolk Motor Inn, it is simply impossible. We'd stayed at the Adelaide International Motel for a few nights but they were booked out and we needed to stay on in... More

I should have heard the warning bells ringing when the staff offered to better the already low agoda.com price all too easily. I now know that all the reviews on agoda that said how friendly the staff are, were clearly written by the staff themselves. The hotel is way out of the main area of Glenelg, even though the staff...

We stayed there in June 2013. Rooms were very basic, small but clean. Contained good features like good hot water, en suite, heating, tea/coffee making, Bar fridge, microwave etc. compared to other small sized motels. Walking distance to lovely Glenelg beach and has an IGA close by. Overall good value for money.

Let me start with the good points. The hotel is well situated near cafes and Jetty Rd. Right that was quick now the bad. At $115 a night there is far better value. If I had viewed the room before I would have spent $40 more and stayed somewhere decent. The room was small and tired. I don't think it... More
