“Hmmmm”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

Staff were lovely, permitting a late checkout request at no charge. Linen, clean and beds comfortable - good sleep. BUT, rooms definitely need an upgrade and major downer for me was the mould on the bathroom walls and ceiling - in future upgrades, extraction fans really need consideration

The hotel room we stayed in, although a little noisy as we were near the staff housekeeping lift, was nice. Just a few ideas, a child's menu in restaurant and the room menu would probably be a good idea, as there weren't any selections a child of six would really eat. Also some hot chocolate sachets would be a good thing to have in the room too, as not everyone likes tea or coffee.

I found a great deal to stay here and was not disappointed. It's not a 5 star but the room was clean and comfortable.

It has free parking and didn't have noisy pigeons like their neighboring hotel.

Dawne at breakfast was a lovely helpful lady!

Good value for money if you find a deal like I did. Would stay here again.

So easy to get to and has a lovely view over the parklands on South Terrace.

Will be back again . Adelaide is such a relaxing city , Glenelg is a perfect place for coffee and breakfast and South Terrace has such easy access to Anzac Highway to Glenelg.

Dear Patricianpark
Thanks for taking the time to write a review. I am pleased you enjoyed your stay.
We also feel our location is ideal allowing easy access to the city or suburbs and the views over the park lands or back to the city are just lovely.
We look forward to welcoming you back when you next return.

Old and a bit tired but still clean enough to feel comfortable. Elevator was interesting! Out of action from 11 to 5 daily. Bed was the best bit. Very comfortable. No access to a bath was the worst bit

Hi Kath C
Thanks for the review, we are pleased you enjoyed your stay.
We are sorry we allocated a room with shower only on this occasion as over 70% of our rooms do have baths in them (with a shower over). When booking for your next stay please let us know so we can make a note of your preferences and get it right for your future visits :)
Kind Regards

Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights over June long weekend. Super noisy, obviously paper thin walls. Could hear every noise and moan our neighbors made. Thank god we didn't have kids with us. The neighbors a few doors down enjoyed banging doors well into the wee hours. Staff were happy to help when we complained about the broken bed and eventually gave us a different room. However I feel sorry for the people who ended up in the room instead of us. Overall not worth what we paid. Would stay somewhere different in the future.
