Overtime I stay at this hotel, it is warm and friendly ... Rooms aren't modern in the sense of the new airline lounge that has hard and bright surfaces. This hotel is not tired, but rather good quality furnishing, comfortable beds and linen.

A pleasant surprise when you walk into your room which is essentially an apartment. Our room was equipped with a lounge room, small coffee table with chairs, kitchenette and large bedroom. More than enough for just the two of us, for those with families this would be perfect. The decor is a little on the dark side- the thick, heavy... More

On checking in, I was given a confirmation note addressed to Mr xxx (I am female). When queried, reception said "you must have made a mistake when you were booking". When we got to the room, phone panel said Ms xxx. Obvious Playford's system is not working! Reception should just have said "I'm sorry, our mistake". Reception staff do not... More

Greeted with a nice clean and well appointed room. Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. The lobby bar staff seemed a little rushed and it was difficult to get served. Overall it was a pleasant stay.

This a return stay on our way through to the Barossa. On both occasions we have been really satisfied. Excellent location, good quality rooms and excellent staff. The property is well located close to CBD, restaurants ,tourist spots and sporting venues. The hotel carpark is also just across the lane way and excellent. We have previously had the full breakfast... More

Can't rate this hotel highly enough. The staff, facilities, second to none. The building gleaming example of Art Novo even down to the bathrooms, but every luxury you expect for this class of hotel. Rooms quiet on 2nd floor and above especially on football final night! Complimentary tea or coffee whilst waiting for your taxi to airport.
