My wife and some friends of hers stayed there last year and thoroughly enjoyed themselves so we knew we would have a great time. We got a great price for 2 nights and then, upon arrival, we learned that we got a free upgrade to... More

What a great family apartment. Great views of ocean through huge windows. One bedroom has two single beds and the other has a full size. This was a classic old house with high ceilings, nicely updated. Large living room with hardwood floors. Fully equipped kitchen. There is a (free) laundry room on site, get there early though.

We arrived early and expected to leave our luggage at reception whilst we went for lunch however the room was ready and we could move straight in. The apartment was neat and clean and had everything we needed; even champagne glasses! Jayne pointed us in the right... More

We had a last minute trip to Adelaide for a family funeral and needed to stay around the Glenelg area. A quick google search came up with several rather dated looking hotels which were not our "cup of tea". Thankfully we also stumbled across Seawall Apartments, which turned out to be the perfect spot for our 2 night stay. The... More

My family of five stayed here and really loved the friendly helpful staff and the old-world charm and feel of the place. Spotless but also has all the modern touches you need. Unfortunately we had to leave so could only stay one night! Thanks. I don't give many reviews but where i am impressed i feel it is appropriate.
