“Great stay!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012 via mobile

I stayed at the Tiffins on the park during a business trip to Adelaide. I found the hotel to be very easily accessible, with great facilities and an excellent bar and restaurant. The food was a particular highlight! The room was comfortable and it was great to see workmen painting during the week, showing that the management cared about maintenance, unlike some smaller hotels I've stayed in. My only criticism was the lack of gym equipment, but the hotel was next to parklands and I could come back for a cool down swim in the pool, so it wasnt much of an issue. I will stay at the Tiffins on the Park next time I'm in Adelaide for work.

Dear seeking the heights,

Thank you very much for taking the time to write us a review, we greatly appreciate it.

It is lovely to hear you enjoyed Tiffins accessibility and in house restaurant/bar, '176 Bar & Grill', our Food and Beverage team are dedicated to ensuring all our guests have a great experience while staying with us.

New management since November 2011 are extremely passionate about resorting and maintaining Tiffins on the Park to its former glory, this includes a lot of painting inside and out, soft and hard refurbs.

Management have been debating internally since we entered the hotel about gym equipment and where we can put an in house gym so thank you for bringing this to the forefront of our thoughts again. Our aim is to have an in house gym and now we are working with the constrains of an only building design to fit one in, but alas hopefully we will have one soon. Great to hear you were able to enjoy exercising in the Adelaide Parklands in the mean time and made use of our lovely heated pool.

Thank you again for taking the time to write a review and we hope to see you again soon.

Kind Regards,

Emily

Hotel is well located if you are driving and want free off-street parking. Staff were friendly and obliging when we asked for non-feather pillows. Rooms were quiet, very clean and large. Very pleasant bar and dining area. Food was very good and reasonably priced. I do not believe the hotel has an elevator (only ground and first floor) so if you cannot manage a flight of stairs to your room, you may want to reconsider the hotel. I would have no hesitation in recommending this property and indeed I would stay here again in the future.

Dear Dianne M,

Thank you very much for your lovely review, we truly appreciate you taking the time to put you thoughts of Tiffins out there.

We are so glad you were able to take advantage of our free onsite parking, we are excited to make this a secure car park in the near future. I am glad our staff were able to help with your pillow request, we try our best to make sure staying away from home is made as conformable as possible at an affordable price. We are also happy you had time to sample our in house restaurant '176 Bar and Grill', we are very proud of how far our restaurant has come and are glad you had an enjoyable time, try and come in on a Friday night next time, to enjoy double bubbles - two glasses of Moet for the price of one! and FREE LIVE MUSIC!

You are quite right to mention our stairs, Tiffins was built in the late 60's which no doubt adds to the lovely charm of the hotel but this does mean the hotel does not have an elevator. Although it is only a short 17 steps, flight of stairs. All of our Executive Queen and Business Class Suite are on the group floor, so if the stairs do concern you please be sure so ask for our availability of these room types.

Thank you again for the lovely review, we look forward to seeing you again soon.

Kind Regards,

Emily

Tiffins on the park Adelaide has very spacious, comfortable, slightly dated rooms, with very large televisions. Dinner & breakfast were excellent. Located opposite parkland, just outside the CBD, 20 minutes from Adelaide airport.

We stayed two nights on a Scoopon deal, including full breakfast and a bottle of wine each night. For the deal, we got a spa room, which to be honest, was a little smaller than we expected but the room was nice and the bed very comfortable and all just fine really.

Easy check in and the staff member on the desk was friendly and helpful. There is a carpark and parking was free using the Scoopon.

We decided to eat dinner in the restaurant downstairs the first night and were blown away but the service and the food.

I ordered the steak and my husband had a special, pork and both of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals, sharing a bottle of sparkling red, really nice!!

Breakfast was extensive and again, really good value and no complaints from us about variety and service. Could probably do nicer coffee but other than that, plenty to chose from:

Yoghurts, fruit, cereals, toasts & raisin bread, eggs (scrambled, fried & hard boiled already there but just ask the chef to poach for you), tomatoes, mushrooms, bacon, hash browns. LIke I said plenty of choice.

And the newspaper there to read whilst enjoying the food.

We will be back, really enjoyed our mini getaway before our home business got crazy busy.

Thanks!!!

I did not stay here, however I went for dinner here for the first time a few weeks ago with my Partner. It wasn't too crowded or loud which I liked. This made for a very comfortable atmosphere. Within minutes of entering the resteraunt, we were approached by a friendly waitor and seated. Were so impressed by the customer service that we'll remember Emma and Matthew next time we dine here.

My partner and I usually dine at resteraunts and when we order steak we find that it's not always cooked exactly the way we ask. We both ordered steak here and were not dissapointed. The potatoes and citrus salad were a perfect combination of flavours for a side.

For dessert we ordered the fondu and the chocolate brownie. The presentation was superb and the combination of fruit was well complimented by the rich chocolate mousse. I was suprised how well pineapple went with chocolate.

I was dissappointed the upstairs section was unavailable due to it being booked out for a function, however I took home a Wedding brochure to overlook with my partner. We're considering possibly having an engagement party here within the next year.

Overall, this is a great place to have dinner. Reasonably priced I found and great value.
No dissapointments here.

Ivy and David.
