I stayed in deluxe room (tv, couch, table, shared verandah, heating, plenty of towels, comfy bed, & almost double glazing for the ouside noise which wasn't a problem even on Friday and Saturday nights). Had a fun cosy stay. Friendly reception, very kind and warm, and accommodating. The hotel was clean & good looking inside over all and had a... More

The location of the Ensenada is a prime reason for staying there. All rooms are comfortable with everything in good order including the bathroom. The newer rooms at the rear are less inspiring than the rooms at the front and the noise problem from the footpath has been addressed some time ago. We try to stay there whenever we are... More

found room to be small, cramped, dated furniture, overpriced. Windows wouldn't open so that's why staff suggested not opening them! Bathroom extremely small. Great location but internet pictures deceiving

During a recent visit to Adelaide, I stayed 2 nights at the Best Western Ensenada Motor in Glenelg (19th + 20th April, 2015). My check-in before 10.00 am was swift. I was particularly impressed with Mr Rob McBride's efficiency and professionalism at the front desk. My allocated room on the ground floor (I think #3) was very spacious and clean,... More

Hadn't stayed in Adelaide before, but wanted to be by the beach, near a tram stop and walking distance to eateries. This was perfect. Some people had said it was noisy, but we were there on Friday and Saturday nights and the noise wasn't apparent. Lovely spot to stroll around in the evening to choose which one of at least... More

We spent the last night of our driving holiday here and needed to repack suitcases before flying out. Our room on the second floor was very clean and tastefully decorated but had a lot of furniture including a couch and a dining table. There being no lift, we had to manage our heavy cases up two and a half flights... More

This is a really nice hotel and the location is perfect for enjoying this beautiful city. Old world charm, with friendly old world service with a smile. I would love to return and spend more time exploring Glenelg and I would recommend this hotel to all. Easy walking to the beach and restaurants.

Absolutely reversed our opinions on motel-style accommodation in Glenelg. Stayed 1 night at another establishment, and it just wasn't up to scratch . Finding this place was a blessing, even if it did cost us more. The duty manager/part owner, Rob McBride, welcomed us and was able to provide a lovely 1 bedroom suite for 3 nights. So comfortable and... More

Disappointed with this hotel despite the amazing location. Our first morning there the cleaners walked in while we were still in bed. Our third day cleaners let themselves in to our room even though we didn't have the 'Please make up our room sign' ... while nothing was disturbed or taken we felt violated. The hot water service is out... More
