Not a bad place, though you can tell it is a very old building. It got quite cold in our room overnight, which was a little surprising. The advertised price on TA was over $20 cheaper than what the hotel manager would allow us to book at, and when I told him that I wanted to just book it through... More

There appears to be some confusion as to the conversation when you arrived. Our room rates on trip advisor are the same as on our own system and on every other website. The rate that shows on Trip advisor will depend on your settings. We suspect that your settings were showing you rates in US $ and therefore the rate... More

Very nice hotel situated nearby the centre of Adelaide. We had a room with a single and a double bed. The room also had tv and a sink. Our room had a private bathroom with toilet and shower, but unfortunately you have to cross the hall to reach it. The free breakfast is very simple, but you can not expect... More

A very nice place in North Adelaide just a 20 minutes walk from the city center. It's good value the rooms are clean, and breakfast is included. The staff is kind and helpful. Andrew is always present to answer the questions you need to ask, especially if you're visiting for the first time.

Stayed overnight. Not the " traditional " type hotel . Converted from very large old house, there is beautiful large sweeping staircase to a balcony with views over the Adelaide hills. We stayed in one of the ground floor rooms with ensuite. It was very nice, good bed linen, fluffy towels , comfortable bed and nice pillows. The ensuite was... More

Very good location near Adelaide oval. Beautiful old building. Helpful owners/staff. Only negative - noisy old heater. Very good value for money with a hearty breakfast thrown in. Everything apart from the heater was good. Even though it's under airport flight path you don't hear planes at all in rooms

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Princes Lodge Motel. It was a very nice old manor opposite a park and surrounded by beautiful old heritage homes. Our deluxe queen room was well equipped, clean and comfortable. Was easy walking distance to restaurants and shops and also to the city. The staff were always helpful and obliging and we certainly...

From the reviews I expected an older place and the price indicated that it was not flash either, but I did expect more quality than we received. The room was small but adequate until rain kept one indoors for long periods and then it tends to be squeezy but what made it bad was the lighting! I couldn't read or... More

Although the hotel is dated it is very clean and the furnishings make it part of its charm. The beds are very comfortable and little to no noise outside make for a good nights sleep. Only a 15min walk to Adelaide oval make it a perfect place to stay for cricket or AFL and a 5 min walk to some... More

We were very happy with the Princes Lodge Motel. It is a grand old house that has been split into nice rooms, each with its own bathroom. The rooms are fairly spacious. The breakfast room is very nice and the breakfast is generous with a good choice of cereals plus juices, spreads and tea or coffee. The wifi is good,... More
