“Still amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Back to the Oaks pier for business trip, staff put us on 6th floor with magnificent views of fore shore and surrounds, room was great as always, and close to many fine restaurants. Can't speak to highly of staff always friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Ocean views are fantastic!

Great location - walk straight onto the beach, right near the pier and close to heaps of shops and cafes. Very friendly staff and the room was much bigger than expected, clean and (if we could have been bothered) everything we needed for making meals.

Fantastic location and the hotel facilities are great. staff were a little cold and uninterested to help, but certainly didn't detract from the stay. room was excellent we were in a 1 bedroom apartment it was clean and the bed was very comfortable. room was well equipped for the price we payed ($149) definitely would stay again just for the location

The apartments are clean and spacious and in a beautiful spot right on the water. A 3 minute walk from the restaurants and shopping strip. A great spot to have an easy flat walk along the waters edge at the end of the day.

We stayed here for a week during the tour down under. $1800 for 6 days for the 5 of us in a 2 bedroom apartment in January - certainly cant complain about that. Beach front balcony, walking distance to shops, cafes and transport. Great restaurants and cafes in side too. Pool, gym and sauna all well cleaned and maintained.

Room Tip: theyre all good, but as you can imagine, ocean views are best, especially as you get the sunset over...

After coming from a great experience in Hahndorf we were excited about coming back to Glenelg after 11 years away.

This hotel had everything we wanted. We booked an ocean view apartment and the view we had from our balcony was amazing. The room was very well appointed with a great little kitchen to make breakfast, separate lounge with a huge TV to watch the footy and a spa in the bathroom. The pool was nice, a bit smaller but still nice for a few laps to unwind after golf in the heat. The only negative was that due to the location of our room our balcony had no "roof" or over from the elements due to being right in the middle and there was no room above us. This made it hard to use when the wind hit but it was a minor negative.

The Bar downstairs - The Pier Bar (i think) was great as well. Cheap Coronas on a Sunday and open late for an after dinner drink before heading to the room.

The best part had to be the location, the Marina on one side and Jetty Road on the other. We had so many plans to do day trips and look around but were so comfortable at the hotel that we decided to make it a lazy week instead... over all it was great way to end our anniversary week!

I have been here multiple times even when it was first opened and was called the Ramada. Always have had enjoyable stays as this really is my home away from home whenever in South Australia.Great views of the Ocean and surrounds, summer is great with a vibrant rage in the atmosphere and winter with its seductive restaurants. I always book directly with Oaks reservation staff and always enjoyed their prompt respsonses to my requests. Amela on the front desk is always so helpful and helps make us always feel welcomed as if we are back home. Ease of room service, parking, local eateries all make this my ultimate destination when staying in Adelaide...
