There are so many options when it comes to places to stay in Adelaide, after lots of research i chose the Rockford. Overall, a great place to stay. I chose to stay in a Superior King Suite with spa bath. The bed was not a true "king size" bed, instead was two large singles joined together. Although comfortable, there was of course the annoying part in the centre of the bed where both mattresses joined. The spa was great, i loved being able to lie back in the spa and watch a movie. It was a slight disappointment not to have a choice of in house movies, but not the end of the world. My room was large and comfortable with a modernish style. My stay was for 5 nights including a weekend, my room overlooked Hindley street which was no problem until Friday night came. There is a night club directly across from the hotel which of course means loud bass pounding music until the early hours. It was obvious that there wasn't going to be much sleep coming but i was very pleasantly surprised that on the delivery of some late night room service brought by the night manager, that a change of room was offered and attempted. Unfortunately, no suitable room was available but i was assured that i would be moved for my final nights stay. I was a little skeptical, but was told to call reception the next morning when i was ready to be moved and sure enough, the manager was quickly at my door providing a hand to move my luggage and i was in the new room in no time. The hotel is great value for money and offers very comfortable and clean accommodation. Room service was a great option, although my only criticism would be that there is a very limited late night selection which could easily be improved. The biggest let down would be my one and only breakfast from the hotel (in room). I ordered an omelette with ham, cheese and tomato and sadly, it was terrible! More like two very well and hard fried eggs with some stuffing in between. Oh well, can't win them all! I must say though, i had many other meals via room service which were all excellent. There are lots of places very close by to eat and if you don't let the very "interesting" walk along Hindley street past many massage parlours, adult dance venues and shish cafe's up towards Rundle Mall, then your choice of menu is almost unlimited. So overall, The Rockford is somewhere i would definitely stay again. The staff are a stand out, all were very friendly and happy to help with any assistance required.
