Our room faced towards the ocean and towards jetty road. We stayed on a thursday night and noise was not an issue. room was clean and comfortable. Would stay here... More

We stayed after a weary long drive. The staff were welcoming and very helpful about where to go for dinner. Parking was free and we were impressed with the value and even more impressed when we found continental breakfasts were included. When we entered room 100 on the tenth floor we were wowed by the view, it was a lovely... More

We go here once a year for a date night. As the building is round, your view can be anything in 360 degrees from the sea to the hills and everything in between. The rooms (with a balcony) are simple but comfortable with a spa bath and the usual motel type features. We have always found it quiet, clean and... More

This is an older property however this apartment on the 10th level with a view of Glenelg city line looks like the bathroom is reasonably new & is suited to wheelchair customers however the glass panel between the shower & toilet is perhaps a hinderance for transferring off your chair onto the toilet as you can't get your chair close...

Dear David, thank you for taking the time to review our property. Our access rooms are brand new and were built last year from the ground up. The rooms were designed with guidance from a disabled access consulting company. I apologise if there was some confusion regarding the glass panel between the shower and toilet.

Glenelg is a must see place if you’re in Adelaide, but it can be pretty pricey too. The Atlantic is a good budget option if money is a bit tight. I simply wanted a cheap place to stay for a couple of nights after doing some work in Adelaide and at $125 per night on one of the high floors;... More

The website does no reality to what you get. A night at 170 bucks with breaky was expensive given the room was tidy but noisy neighbours banging doors. The view is of the oaks tower opposite but so if you do stay here ring and confirm a marina view or similar high up. My big complaint was the narrow tiny... More

Dear Tim. Thank you for your feedback. I apologise for any inconvenience caused by inconsiderate guests during your stay. In regards to the restaurant, this is out of our control. The Revolving Restaurant is a separate business to the Atlantic Tower and the previous owners shut it down about six months ago. Hopefully a new tenant will take over the... More

My wife and I stayed here for the second time just for the views, plus good value for money given its right in Glenelg. There is free parking, WIFI and breakfast which is a good added bonus.

Our room was clean, and adequate, but compared to other options that were actually closer to the waterfront it was over priced. The building is old, the free breakfast is toast & coffee.
