“FRIENDLY HOME AWAY FOM HOME.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2012

HAVE STAYED AT THE SOMBRERO 3-4 TIMES A YEAR FOR THE LAST 10YRS.Some of the current staff have been there for all of this time which is a good indictaor as to what sort of organisation this is like.
Rooms are A1 in cleanliness which is important to me, staff are very friendly and obliging, parking is plentiful. we dont eat in the restraunt a lot but menu is varied and very nice - can reccomend the cooked breaky.The staff make u feel welcome and tipping that if i ever need something out the ordinary they would help out.Gd work to Con and his '"FAMILY".

I stayed there twice in the last 12 months, found the rooms clean and spacious (there are smaller appartments too, so if possible ask for the larger ones...).
Staff is friendly, all in all we had a pleasant stay without any annoyances..

I have been staying at this motel on a regular basis for about 10 years. Really that says it all because you don't keep coming back to a place that is not up to standard. The staff are friendly; the rooms are clean and comfortable; continental breakfast included and a morning paper; cooked breakfast in the restaurant or in your room; evening meals in the restaurant [and I have to say I have never had an unsatisfactory meal] or room service; on site covered pool that is always clean; secure on site parking.
In fact it is even better than home because I don't have to do the washing up.
Over the years the rooms have been updated and refurbished to maintain the high standard.
Con and his staff are to be congratulated for the trouble taken to make guests comfortable and provide all services that might be required.
In my opinion this is the best motel that I have stayed at in Australia [and I have stayed in many in all states].
This will be my last business trip as I am retiring, but if I ever return to Adelaide for a holiday, I know where I will be staying.

What a pleasure it was to discover this motel by chance. Its style suggests it has been around a while but, as a credit to its owners, it has been maintained to a high standard and contemporary tastes. Its beds were extremely comfortable and fortunately, due to the pre-New Year heat wave, the air conditioning was a godsend. I'd definitely consider staying here again and use it as a base for exploring Adelaide.

This is the fourth time I have stayed at the Sombrero. On this occasion I stayed in a two bedroom family room which is very spacious and comfortable. The decor, fittings and furniture in the room are very nice. It was good to have a flat screen HD TV in both rooms so the kids could watch their shows in peace (maybe that was me also!). The complex is very secure with a key card opening the gate to the carpark and complex at night and a person on the front desk 24hrs. My main prerequisites were met - comfy beds, good shower, good reverse cycle airconds, very clean and quiet. We had our own car so it was great to stay somewhere close to the city where you could park in front of your room and not have to pay for parking. The motel is also on a main road with the local buses travelling straight into the city. I also ate in the restaurant twice and had great food and service from people who treat you like family members. Very welcoming and beautiful people.

Room Tip: If a family ask for the 2 bedroom room closest to carpark

Our accomodation consisted of a downstairs toilet, utility room equipped with washing machine and dryer, kitchen (fully equipped), lounge/diner and stairs leading to 2 double bedrooms and combine bathroom and toilet. Everything was to a very high standard with modern and clean equipment. We did not use the motel restaraunt as it was easy to visit a local supermarket ( 5 mins walk) and cook whatever meals you wished: in fact we did some entertaining! The location of the motel has good and bad points. It is on the main road into the city and so we were pleased to be able to catch the bus and leave the car parked. However, being near the main road does mean that noise levels are generally higher, but nothing that stopped us sleeping. We really enjoyed staying at this motel for a few days and found the staff really very helpful. We had some visitors who used the swimming pool: no complaints.
