“Great location, spotless and quiet!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

We stayed here for 3 days . It is right behind the Melbourne Street shopping strip. The unit was a small one bedroom apartment with dish drawer and washer dryer as well as the usual amenities.

The unit comes with a car park. We were met on arrival by a representative and were given a handy pack with maps and tourist information. Note this is an apartment, so there is only a token supply of tea/coffee/ milk, but there is washing powder and dishwasher detergent. No shampoo/conditioner/shower soaps. There is a full size fridge and oven and we had a great time going to the Adelaide markets and cooking up some gourmet treats.
It is only a 2 minute walk through St Cyprians Church to Melbourne St and its cafe/restaurants. There is a small supermarket a little past the Fine Wine cellars on the opposite side of Melbourne St to the church. If you walk up Sussex St to the east, then turn up East Pallant St to the north, you will find a nice little pub, the Kentish Arms with a nice beer garden out the back.

Room Tip: There are ground and upper floor units. In this location the 'balcony' is just the walkway t...

Hello Unclefey

Thank you so much for you wonderful review we really appreciate it. You are right, as it is an apartment we do only provide a few basic supplies to help you settle in and for people who are staying for only a few days they should find these supplies sufficient for their stay.

We look forward to welcoming you back to Adelaide DressCircle should you return to Adelaide again.

Great place to stay in North Adelaide. Extremely well presented, very new, clean and quiet. Also close to pubs, grocery shop, eating places and the free connector bus. Janette was very helpful and friendly. Our unit was upstairs so could be tricky if you aren't very mobile.

Hello Jenb56

Thank you for your lovely review we really appreciate it and very pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay.

As the Sussex St apartments are on two levels we just ask any people with mobility issues when booking to let us know, as we will always try to assist in allocating them a ground floor apartment.

I will certainly pass on your feedback to Jeannette, she will be very pleased to hear this.

We look forward to welcoming you back to Adelaide DressCircle should you return to Adelaide again.

It was amazing. Close to the centre of the city, in one of the best spots in all Adelaide. It was clean and I've never had any inconvenience.
Next to one of the best streets in North Adelaide for eat and have some drinks.
If I have the chance to come back, I'll definitely come back to Dresscircle.

It was perfect for us - easy drive to our office, next to a terrific pub bistro, with quick grocery spot nearby and plenty of choice for eating places. We were upstairs, might be hard for older folks - but excellent facilities - all very comfortable and we'll come back. Did not get a chance to test the fitness centre or pool; it might have been nice to have rubbish taken out maybe eery 3 days, not leave it all up to us?

As it is an apartment it is not serviced daily only on a weekly basis. However there are rubbish bins within the grounds for guests convienence.

We hope we can assist you again in your accommodation requirements should you return to Adelaide.

This two bedroom apartment was very clean and comfortable, it's location is excellent with easy walking to pubs and restaurants. The staff were great to deal with they were all really friendly and went out of their way to help . The parking was a little tricky , a very tight area to park in but comfy beds and excellent location made up for that.
Absolutely would not hesitate to go back and would recommend to anyone.

This location was perfect for our needs, and the stay was very pleasant. There is parking on site, although for two of the nights it was taken by someone else, and parking is not always available on Childers Street close to the apartments, so make it clear if you need parking for every night of your stay. The stairs would not be good for less able people. The rooms were very clean. Had a problem with the dishwasher and water pressure in the shower was terrible, but other facilities were good. If 'plane noise annoys you I wouldn't choose here, but it didn't worry me. The people were lovely and I would stay here again.

Hello Pamela M

Thank you for your review we are sorry to hear that you encountered a few issues.

If someone else parks in your parking space you just need to give us a call and we will assist in finding you another one. It is very annnoying when people take other peoples parking spots. In regards to the problems with the dishwasher and the water pressure, once again if you give us call we would send around our maintenance person in a flash to solve any issues/problems you may be having.

We look forward to being able to assist you again with your accommodation requirements should you return to Adelaide again.
