“5 nights at Miller Apartments”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

We spent 5 nights at this location. I think there could be some debate about what was in the photos and what we actually received in the "1 bedroom apartment" which was more like a hotel room with a partial wall between the bedroom and the lounge/ktichen. Not really an apartment - as the wall has an open space above it. We had planned to cook breakfast for example - but on the first morning there alarms went off. Someone down the hall was cooking and set off alarms.... nice way to wake up. We just dressed immediately and went out to the mall to grab something then. I looked at our kitchen set up - in the kitchen the fan outlet simply seems to exhaust through a hole in the top of the cupboards back into the room (is that legal - let alone healthy? It would be smelly likely?). Plus it was very very dusty on top of the cupboards - so that would get blown around. In the end we didn't cook - there was an odd little sign warning people that if you were cooking and the alarm went off - to push some button. Why not have installed proper ventillation in the first place. Room itelf was tidy enough. TV was rather small with a poor choice of stations - hardly a high rated exec setup but perhaps that depends on what you are comparing it to.We also wondered about the washing machine and the dryer which we used - we checked an the staff said to leave the closet door open for venting...hmmmm. it did seem there was an exhaust vent on the ceiling but we were also told to leave the bathroom fan on! Not sure about how that is all hooked up - so the drier exhaust goes into the room? Staff were friendly and attentive. I did leave a note about the dust etc. but it was still there when we left. Located near the Rundle Mall which was convenient. Short distance to some restaurants. Ended up eating at nearby places for breakfasts after that fire alarm etc. which wasn't exactly what we planned - but we just didn't want any morning hassles. Small little sofa in the room - and not much space to relax. Only one chair with a little table on the balconey - the but the old railing wall - cement - is so high you couldn't sit and see anything anyway. We were on the road side - but didn't find it too noisy. We did hear people coming and going in the hall and doors banging etc in the mornings. Bathroom seemed a bit small to get in and out of. Overall it was not too expensive I suppose but we were expecting something else.

Room Tip: Perhaps do not take a 1 bedroom if it has the same set up as ours. Perhaps the larger ones are bette...

Dear Guest
Thank you for choosing to stay with us, and I only think it fair to respond to what I see as some misleading comments regarding our apartment hotel.
*We are a 4.5 star AAA rated apartment hotel and our design reflects this. There is not a "partial wall" however a small gap in our one bedroom apartments for air flow and this is a popular design feature with most our guests
*The kitchen fan outlet is a proper air filtering unit, and although there may be hole in the top, this is to let the filtered air out into the room which is completely standard practice in apartment buildings
*The apartments are without doubt properly ventilated and to think a new apartment building such as this could be built without proper ventilation could't be further from the truth
*For our guests safety we have sensitive fire alarms, and when cooking there is a simple button to press to isolate this alarm, again, common practice in apartment hotels. Unfortunately a guest nearby your room did not activate this switch however it is a great example of how safe our hotel is. I do apologies however for any inconvenience.
*Regarding the choose of TV stations on our new LCD TV's, we have all the free to air digital and analogue stations, and 9 Foxtel stations. This is more than most 5 star hotels in the city.
*We receive many overwhelmingly positive comments about our rooms and have a very loyal following of return guests, however I am disappointed that in this instance we have not met your expectations.
Safe travels, and thank you again for staying with us.
Regards
John

We booked a one bedroom Executive apartment. We particularly chose the aparment as it would have its own cooking facilities and judging by the pictures I expected something more spacious than a hotel room. The room was long and very skinny, the bedroom was so small we could barely get alongside the bed.

There was a small kitchenette which on first glance looked terrific. Then we noticed the extractor fan went through a cupboard and then back into the room. As the wall between the bedroom and the living area doesn't go right up to the ceiling, the fan would blow kitchen smells into the bedroom. The second thing was the big sign above the elements saying find the button to turn off the alarm before you start cooking. Hmmm. Sure enough next morning, our neighbours set of the smoke alarms cooking toast. We had only chosen this place so that we could cook our own breakfast, but after that we ate out every day. It wasn't worth the hassle.

There was a balcony, but no view. The bathroom was tiny. Having said all that, while it didn't really suit us, it was convenient, the staff were friendly, and the room was quiet, and the price very reasonable.

Room Tip: If the photos are of the 2-3 brm apartments they might be better.

Stayed here for two nights recently and the room had everything we needed DVD player kitchen facilities which are great if you want to stay on a budget, great location close to everything but can get noisy on a Friday and Saturday night. The room was very clean and roomy and staff were friendly. I booked this room through Wotif and found the rate very good value for what it was. I would stay here again if given the opportunity.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor at the rear of the complex to help alleviate noise from the street.

Our group of four stayed overnight at Miller Apartments, Adelaide. This was a very comfortable and clean apartment. Three bedrooms, one with ensuite and a second separate bathroom/toilet. Very convenient location to shops, restaurants, transport - easy walk to city shops and arcades, and Haighs chocolate shop! The reception staff were very helpful and polite. We would stay here again.

My daughter and I stayed here in July for about a week. It's a wonderful hotel/apartment. It's in a great location in the CBD with a short ride to and from the airport. Professional courteous staff. A clean and comfortable room with a small balconey to open for fresh air. The kitchen is very nice with fridge,full stove top, sink, and dishwasher. In room clothes washer and dryer was a real bonus since we were on a 3 week tour of Australia. The bed was very comfortable, but the pillows were a bit puffy. The staff that keeps the rooms clean are top drawer. Stay here you will be happy you did.

Staying here for 2 nights with a trip to kangeroo island in between, we were pleasantly surprised to find comfortable accommodation which was stylish and well serviced. However, on a Saturday night the party never stops on Hindley Street and according to the locals this is the noisiest part of town. The thudding reverberating music didn't stop. The 24/7 pub immediately opposite did not help at all. People were still partying at 6am.

When we returned from our trip for another night, thank god it was a monday and quieter!

Room Tip: if it's the weekend and you are not joining the party ask the highest floor possible.

My husband and I stayed at Miller Apartments for 4 nights in July.
These Apartments were chosen for the following reasons: location...we would not be having a car so needed the trams and also wanted to be close to the shopping area.
Rates: I checked many booking sites for rates and compared them all. The best rates are to be found on Miller Apartments own website.
Our location was spot on for all that we needed. Shopping and restaurants were all within easy walking distances. Public transport a mere few hundred meters away.
I felt that the rate we picked up was good for Australia. The Apartment was large enough for us. We booked a 1 Bedroom Unit. It was clean, tidy and roomy. The bed was comfortable and the shower was good. Cooking facilities contained everything that we required. It was quiet apart from the pigeons on the outside windows sills waking us each morning ( we did need an alarm clock so this was fine )
Reception staff were friendly, pleasant and helpful.
I do have 1 criticism, this was the location of our unit. It was placed at the far back corner of the building. Our lounge window overlooked the Wilson Car Park and the back of Subway. Subsequently the view was non existent so we kept our curtains drawn and the smell from Subway was off putting.Our bedroom window was non see though therefore these curtains were kept shut as well.
As we were out and about the majority of the day this did not prove to be a problem. The important things...the bed, the shower etc were all good.
If by chance we go back to Adelaide I would stay here again. I would request a unit not completely at the back of the building.

Room Tip: Ask not to be placed in the far back corner if possible. Sometimes this is not possible but it does...
