I booked the Atlantic Tower as a gift for my wife's birthday and did the romantic package. I booked a tower room on the 11th floor. The room was quite small for what I expected. The view over the city was great. There are more arches than you would find at a McDonalds. The bathroom is average and the roof... More

Hi John, I'm sorry to hear that your experience was only average. That's certainly not the impression we want our guests to leave with. The 11th floor rooms were the first rooms to get refurbished about 5 years ago and despite still being reasonably modern, they still have the old arches in them. These rooms will be getting some new... More

The Atlantic Tower Motor Inn is a combination of motel and residential accommodation. The location is convenient and has parking in the vacant property adjacent. I had a first floor room so there was no bay view, but I could see the Adelaide Hills. Facing away from the main road, the room was quiet. It has recently been renovated. The... More

Dear Missy, thank you for taking the time to review our property. I’m shocked that my receptionists weren’t able to help you with the location of a petrol station. I apologise for that. I will make sure to quiz them on local knowledge on a regular basis to ensure it doesn’t happen again. More

Was very impressed with this hotel. From check in which was very friendly and efficient to the room with a great city view to the location which was about 500 metres to Jetty Road to the included continental breakfast. The room was very clean and comfortable. While this is an older property you would have to really look hard to... More

The Atlantic stands out on the horizon as it is a cylindrical building and it is rated at 3.5 stars. However, for me with limited mobility I rated them much higher given all of the good functions available inside our room. On arrival we found that whilst they had a glass manual door, access was relatively easy into the building.... More

Aficionados of 1960s/70s hotels (are there many?) will love this place because it's a classic period piece. All over the world architects came up with circular hotels because it was trendy, though they seemed not to have realised that this resulted in wedge-shaped bedrooms. Reception was friendly, and the hotel occupies just the top few floors of the tallest building... More

Thank you for taking the time to submit a review. Our building is certainly a charming part of Adelaide’s history. It’s still the tallest building in SA outside of the CBD. The views from our highest floors are definitely a draw-card! More

Great place to stay, excellent rooms , Good service and food. Very friendly staff. Only a short walk to the tram line, then you are into the city. If you are looking for a place a bit out of town, but close enough, this is the place to stay.
