We stayed here for four nights and we were tempted by price - it was $650 for 4 nights. First impressions were good - the staff were very friendly and the building has an old style 'grand' feeling. Our room was nice but very slight run down.. Some of the amenities (eg there is normally a guest kitchen) were not available because of COVID-19, but this was understandable. The reception is only available 8am to 8pm with an emergency mobile number if required. We discovered after 8pm that our kettle had obviously been used to heat milk - or possibly noodles - and was left with a very unpleasant residue. Because of the reception hours this meant we could not resolve this issue till the next day - so no tea for us that night. Reception staff were apologetic and replaced it with a very nice new clean kettle. The day after we checked in we were out all day and our room was serviced. The next day even though we left the 'please make up my room' sign our room was not serviced. It happened to be New Years Day and we did wonder if perhaps there was no servicing on holidays. But again the reception staff were apologetic and promised our room would be serviced the next day. The next day our room was serviced but in a rather careless manner. We had used the mugs provided. One was replaced and the other was left next to the bed - used and unchanged.We also left a used teaspoon in a wineglass and this was just left as it was. While I appreciate that individually these are small things, the combination of these experiences left us a little underwhelmed with the hotel. Cleanliness is a pretty important aspect of a pleasant hotel stay and our experience didn't give us the impression that this was important to the hotel - or at least their servicing staff. On the plus side it is in a great position (if you want to be that side of Adelaide), close to a lot of good cafes and restaurants. It was reasonably priced but, as suggested in my title of this review, you get what you pay for. If attention to detail, cleanliness and consistency is important to you then this may not be the hotel for you.…
Just spent 5 nights at the Adabco hotel in Adelaide. Very pleasant room on the third floor with a window that opened. How good is that. Timed our visit perfectly as on our first night the hotel was introducing a wine and nibbles session for guests. About 20 guests arrived and spent a convivial hour or so chatting and imbibing. We met Damian the Director of Sales who invited us over to their sister hotel, The Mayfair, for a drink on the house in the roof top bar which was fabulous. Great view of the city and a very mean Margarita. Thanks Damian.
I can't write enough good things about this hotel. The hotel, staff and rooms are all spot on. We have stayed at this hotel on 2 occasions and I can't fault the service. An the hotel smells amazing too.. I wouldn't mind knowing what scent they use.
Adabco was a lovely hotel, with a very comfortable queen bed and a spotless room. Spacious with room to move and a well appointed bathroom. We enjoyed a buffet breakfast the following morning in the hotels dining room, where there was a good variety of choices. Friendly staff from my phone booking to our departure. Thankyou for a lovely stay.
Our very first place in Australia. What could be more welcoming than this hotel. Nice room and easily accessible to the rest of Adelaide. Shops and botanical gardens within walking distance. Breakfast well worth having. The staff worked extremely hard and were always friendly and helpful. Couldn’t fault it
