“Nice rooms”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

We had a lovely stay here. The room upgrade to King is well worth the small charge. Book parking for your car - there is very little parking available. Our Saturday night sleep was sparse - party girls next door being very disruptive. We were told that we could have reported this, however, if the staff were on the desk they must have noticed the guests going in and out of the lobby during the night? Aside from that one night we enjoyed our stay and it's within walking distance to a lot of attractions.

Room Tip: Choose a room at the back of the building for less noise.

Stayed here one night on a business trip recently. Have stayed here before and was expecting the same high standard. It generally achieved this but I was let down about a couple of things. The reception was efficient and I was offered the codes to get 'free wifi', but I found that it ended after an hour or so after I logged on - so not so free. The room was spacious and quiet with a clean modern look, which was good. I ordered dinner from room service but it was only warm when it arrived, and the food was not anything special. The bathroom was good but the showerhead was awful - it sprayed water all over the place and not much on me! The bed was fine but the pillows were far too soft. I had breakfast there and thought it was overpriced for a typical restaurant buffet breakfast.

Great for weekend/ short stay, handy to everything.
Easy walking to most places of interest, otherwise very handy free shuttle bus around perimeter outside hotel and very good public metro system.
Staff friendly and informative. Breakfast good value.

Travel around AU and found the King Suite at Rockford to be one of the better valued studio rooms that I have stayed in. Firstly all of the pillows I had in the room were flat and considering I was there for three nights I asked reception if they could help me out with something thicker. Within 5 mins they knocked on the door with a pillow of perfection. Nice, spacious, modern rooms. Yes it is in a seedy part of town but I knew that and wasn't fussed. Apothecary is the only classy restaurant within walking distance and a good pub I think was called one world 100m up the road in the other direction offered $5 schooners rather than the overpriced beer at the Rockford. Only complaint is the effort put in by the cleaners each day. Didn't clean the bench in the bathroom or vacuum the carpet which needed doing. I expect my room to be cleaned as if I were a new customer each day. Double glazed so noise was really noticeable from the third floor. probably a different story in the weekend. Will stay again.

Disappointing.
Minus. Reception varied between totally disinterested to very helpful. Rather dark entrance & corridors. Room was adequate but the bathroom entrance is right beside the bed and only has a sliding door that does not fit. Shower over small bath. Needs a refurbishment.
Plus. Good breakfast. Car parking available.

I enjoyed my one night stay at the Rockford while in town for a business trip. Just a block from UniSA and just a couple of blocks from shopping and restaurants, the location is terrific. The room was very comfortable and modern and I was thrilled that my room was available for an early morning check in after arriving from the airport. Will definitely stay here again.

Great place, great staff, its clean, has free wifi which was great and in a great location would recommend. The rooftop pool and sauna are pretty cool as well. could be a tad cheaper, but the room is pretty good value for money.
