Thank you dixie dirt for your high praise. It sounds like we ticked all the boxes for you - comfy beds, quirky themed decor, quiet and in such a wonderful location. I am glad that you appreciated the fact that we are not a high rise shiny box-style apartment block, we are very proud of our unique heritage buildings. Thank... More

We had 12 of our Ultimate Frisbee team stay at the Seawall. Facilities, location, pricing were all great. If the tournament was held in a similar location again in the future, I would definitely book Seawall again!

Thanks for staying with us at Seawall Jr B! It was great to have you staying with us for the Ultimate Frisbee Championships held locally at Westminster School. I am glad the weather fined up for you. The grassed promenade in front is perfect for a hucking a bullet. Thank you for recommending us as an ideal place for teams... More

Overall a wonderful stay near the waterfront. Quiet location with pedestrian traffic only at front door. VERY quiet - The Crows Nest was perfect for 1-2 people, & no noise whatsoever from other units.

We stayed in the 'Courtyard'. My husband and I were very excited, as we had spent ages poring over pictures on the internet to find somewhere lovely to stay for his birthday. The website leads you to believe that this room has a beautiful private courtyard for you to enjoy - not the case, The courtyard is shared with three... More

Dear NadineM480, I am sorry to hear that you were not wowed by your recent stay. It is a shame we couldn't give you a view of the sea - coming from the red center I imagine you would have loved a room like The Landing, although I note that you specifically chose this courtyard apartment. I have addressed the... More

We have stayed here twice now and both times have had a lovely stay. Clean, comfortable, all the facilities you need (full kitchen, free wifi, onsite parking, lovely bathroom with spa) and the perfect, peaceful beachfront location. A little pricey, but if you want a little splurge, then it's well worth it!

We traveled as a family - me, my wife, our little kid (1.3) and my mother in law. At Seawall Apartments we were offered an amazing 2 bedroom apartment, with a nice, fully-equipped kitchen and dining area. All the amenities were working properly, and electrical equipment was in a good condition. The surrounding area is a very pleasant Glenelg seaside.... More

Stayed in one of the beach facing apartments for a couple of nights in March. Apartment was huge. Three bedrooms with a big lounge, kitchen plus two bathrooms (one with a spa overlooking the ocean). Very handy location. Short stroll up to the main street of Glenelg and no roads between the property and the beach. Outside of the property... More

Would recommend these apartments as a great location if you need to be close to the Airport for an early flight. Also lovely sea view if you are lucky enough to have a seafront Apartment. Once you are inside they are pleasantly decorated but from the outside it is very old looking with a lot of dilapidated seafaring objects around.... More

Dear Stephen G, Thank you for taking the time to post your thoughts regarding your recent stay at Seawall in March. I am glad you found our wonderful beach front location handy to the airport . We are lucky to only be 15 minutes from Adelaide International Airport but fortunate to not have any aircraft noise. Kind regards, Rachael More

One of my very favourite places to stay in the world. Location perfect, accommodation well suited to the location and only metres from the esplanade and beach. Always a pleasant breeze, even on the hottest of days and a great expanse of well tended lawns and mature Norfolk Island pines offering shade when required. There are apartments to cater to... More
