We only stayed here one night, we were in a level 1 room so none of the view talked about on their website. The bed was only a double so not a lot of stretch out room for 2 adults. Only one person at a time could fit in the bathroom and the only mirror in the room was located... More

We found this accommodation to be fantastic value. The price, including continental breakfast in a dining room, was $99. Our price was 10% less because of reward with Booking.com We were impressed with updated decor, modern bathroom (though small) The bed was comfortable. We were also impressed by table and chairs, decent size coffee mugs, fresh milk and moccona coffee.... More

Thank you for the lovely review. We like to consider every detail of the guest experience, right down to decent coffee and fresh milk. Sometimes it’s the little things that make the biggest difference, so it’s always great to hear positive feedback. We also love your suggestion about providing a mirror in the bedroom area. We have added it to... More

My partner and I stayed for two nights on our road trip to Darwin. It was perfect for a small budget! I absolutely love the beach and would choose Glenelg over Adelaide cbd any day! Good location and highly recommend the water mark over the road for a great meal!

Hi Genevieve, we totally agree that it’s nicer to stay in Glenelg over the city. In fact, we even wrote a blog about it! Glad to hear you and your partner had a great time. Hope to see you again someday. More

Nice Stay with affordable price. Rooms look like bit old but view from balcony was awesome and spa in a shower was too good . Breakfast has limited option, front office staff was very helpful, as specially there was guy at front desk when we check in forgot his name, but he is a value of your hotel. Balcony door... More

Thank you for taking the time to submit a review. I’m glad you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to welcoming you back. The spa rooms were brand new in 2012 and have had some soft furnishing upgrades in the last month. They are definitely our most popular room (with great views too). I will investigate the balcony door... More

Spent 2 nights here and was happy with room, comfortable bed, view from balcony and easy access to main street for shopping and restaurants. A simple continental breakfast but as it was included was happy with that and full breakfast could be purchased if needed. Would go back again.

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
