I had an overnight business trip in Adelaide and looked to stay in Glenelg as it was central to where I was meeting. Most of the places in Glenelg were quite expensive given I really only needed a place to rest my head. And many of the most popular ones had some ordinary reviews. So we booked in to Sewall... More

Seawall Apartments was the perfect place for a weekend away of business planning with a friend. We both had large, comfy rooms that looked onto the beachfront (plenty of people and happenings to watch!), an ultra comfy lounge to plonk our bums on with laptops and deck to sit and watch the sun go down. A five minute walk got... More

Thankyou for the upgrade, very much appreciated. The friendly service, the immaculatey clean rooms, location and quality beds offered a luxury start to our "road trip". We three women, all with recent life stressors, and in need of some time out, really appreciated and highly recommend your beautiful apartments. I felt safe enough to enjoy the amazing moon in the...

My partner and I stayed in "the landing" for 1 night for his 50th birthday. It was exceptional value we received bottle of champagne & late checkout. Short walk to great restaurants. It is definitely a place I would revisit & recommend...can't wait for our next short getaway to seawall apartments.

Licatex on thd beachfront Seawall connot go wrong. Just spectacular the ocean sunsets and dazzling spa when you soak bubble and look out onto the ocean ..... Roo Provided with no service facilities as apartments leaving your privacy intimate. Really close to walks Ana shops and great interaction possibilities with other holiday goers!

We had a very special stay (3 nights) at beautiful Seawall Apartments. First, we were facing a winterstorm there shaking doors and windows and bringing in a little cold air and letting us fear if our Kangaroo Island ferry would run (it did the next day). Second, we saw the historic 7-1 defeat over Brasil in the soccer World Cup... More

Having stayed here on many locations I can honestly say that the apartments are homely, clean and well presented. Being on the beach is a welcome change and within in very short walk you have all the restaurants and nightlife of Glenelg. Not having a restaurant is no problem at all but you need to consider what you'll do for... More

Dear Buzzwald, Great little review and that's a great tip if you are coming in later to stock up with some snacks- and drinks for that matter! We have lots of 'extras' on our website that you can pre-order - breakfast provisions, an Aussie BBQ pack, nibbles packs, beer and Champagne - all manner of life's essentials! And you can... More

Our return to Adelaide was great because of the convenient location of Seawall Apartments. We lived in Glenelg and being so close to Jetty Rd was great. The Broadway cafe was also convenient for a coffee or breakfast. Free parking and laundry was appreciated and the workers from cleaners to office staff very friendly. Each apartment is different with its... More

Thank you Patrica H for taking the time to write about your recent stay.
