Since stumbling across this motel in 2003 I have stayed here around five or six times over the years. Every time I visit Adelaide I think I'll try somewhere else but ultimately end up staying here. Why? The location is great for just about every activity, if you have a car to get around. It's close to Glenelg Beach which... More

A Step back in time, accomodation is very comfortable, cheap, very clean and the welcome was great. Info about local eating establishments was fantastic, great owner. Could park vehicles right outside room, great when we were set up for 4wd camping to the Simpson. Convenient location and very quiet rooms.

The Norfolk is a nice old traditional motel. It is very simple however it is quiet and serves the purpose. The staff are lovely and are sure to make a comfortable stay. Prices were more than reasonable considering the suburb and there is fantastic coffee just across the street!

This was a quick overnight stay where I arrived in the dark and left before sunrise to catch a flight. The proximity to the airport made the location perfect. I just made the motel check-in deadline of 8pm, but found everything ready for me, forms filled in and credit card payment already processed. What a pleasure! The room was clean... More

My wife wanted to revisit her past, it was a great night, in a very comfortable bed and everything you would wnat to do is all about 5 - 10 minutes walk from your front door. The owner/front of house - Steve, is friendly and informative. This motel is definitley not a 5 star, but it is everything you will... More

We stayed in this Inn some years ago and on our recent visit to the area we decided to stay here again. Accommodation is basic but comfortable, some upgrades have taken place. The proprietor is a friendly and helpful guy. The Inn is located near pub/diners and shopping, also its about 3 miles from Adelaide Airport. A short walk will... More

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
