Others have commented on the authentic 1960's decor. It certainly appears that nothing has been changed since then, adn while this may add to the nostalgia value it detracts form the score on quality. For example, in 1966 the plumbing was shiny new chrome. Today the plumbing is rusty, so even though they may clean it, the plug hole is brown and looks dirty. There is a very weird partition to divide the handbasin from the bed. We had room 2, which was a corner so allowed more light and also some cross-ventilation. The room is quite small. Adelaide had heavy bookings that weekend, and many city hotels had jacked their prices way up. We paid $90 per night, which is a pretty cheap price (or a reflection on what others think of the Feathers). The big negative, which brought this back a star was housekeeping. Having got back to the room at 2am from a family function, we hung out the Do Not Disturb sign so we'd get a good sleep in. Housekeeping banged on the door at 8.30am very loudly. I asked if they could see the Do Not Disturb sign. She shouted back through the door that she had finished cleaning and if we didn't let her in right then we wouldn't get fresh towels. Why couldn't she understand that "Do Not Disturb" means "Do Not Disturb"? We were VERY UNIMPRESSED.
