I haven't stayed here so I can only comment on the venue and food. There is a tremendous range of beers available and I found the meals I have had here to be good value. I can recommend the schnitzel as a home made NOT that prefab stuff they deep fry in other places. Staff are friendly and the place... More

Having not been at the Austral for many years, I took the chance to book a comedy show and meal package. The hotel is definitely for those that like grunge and the alternative. It's a very vibrant and diverse place. But, go for the chat, the show and leave the meals aside. Food is basic, and tasteless.

Fantastic place with great staff and security .Dinning room was full and this is a good indication of enjoyable food. Big range of beers on tap to try. I would recommend a beer or more at this hotel. really close to the heart of the city

We were going to a Fringe show nearby at 7pm so we were after a good, quick meal after work. We chose this pub as it was a two for one meal offer in the Entertainment book. Being so early in the evening there were only four other patrons eating in the dining room. There were lots of people just... More

My partner and I recently celebrated our Engagement in the "Bunker" function room at the rear of the building. It really is a hidden treasure! The decor is very "industrial chic" and is nothing like the front bar/rest of the hotel. Drinks were reasonably priced for a city pub and the platters were great. They allowed us to stay in... More

I havent stayed here for accommodation but being on Rundle Street you wouldnt really want to. Its a great pub for food and drinks though. A few of us recently had lunch there, we all ordered different things. Lamb shanks, a little misleading as it only served 1 shank. Salt and Pepper Squid, was also served with baby Octopus and...

Having stayed in 2010 ,thought for the price we would forgive the downsides but on booking in found the quoted price "was wrong, sorry". At double the price quoted and for what we got it was tragic. The room for 4 adult males consisted of 2 singles and a bunk bed, flaking ceiling , leaking single sink, water stains ,... More

I thought I had written a review of this "hotel' the week following our return but it seems to have disappeared - the whole listing, not just my review, so here I go again. Went there for the Clipsal 500. We weren't expecting much but were expecting a bit more than this..... In bullet-point format: FOR Central AGAINST Ancient Loud... More
