I think you have to be realistic when your paying $85 per night, not to expect the Hilton. Yes the rooms are dated, also the décor, well, practical! I had a one night stay, position is great and a short walk for a meal, and a good nights sleep. It was clean and I felt safe, good off street parking.... More

New comfortable beds. Close to Adelaide's state pool. Walk to the Glenelg beach to watch sunrise or sunset. Not over the top. Lovely staff. Bike hire available. Very family orientated. Cafe nearby. Peaceful. Wifi.

These rooms are tiny with a double bed 2 small chairs and a desk with microwave, and kettle. There is a sliding door to a tiny bathroom toilet with no vanity or storage. Even the "ironing board" was tiny and hanging on a coat hanger. This might be OK for 1 night but you could not stay for our planned... More

My partner and I chose this motel when we couldn't get into our first choice, and we're glad we did. To begin with, the location is brilliant. Ten minute walk to Broadway Beach, and another ten to Glenelg Beach. It is really handy for everything in Adelaide, has ample parking, and a laundry. The owners are so nice; very friendly... More

Since stumbling across this motel in 2003 I have stayed here around five or six times over the years. Every time I visit Adelaide I think I'll try somewhere else but ultimately end up staying here. Why? The location is great for just about every activity, if you have a car to get around. It's close to Glenelg Beach which... More

A Step back in time, accomodation is very comfortable, cheap, very clean and the welcome was great. Info about local eating establishments was fantastic, great owner. Could park vehicles right outside room, great when we were set up for 4wd camping to the Simpson. Convenient location and very quiet rooms.

The Norfolk is a nice old traditional motel. It is very simple however it is quiet and serves the purpose. The staff are lovely and are sure to make a comfortable stay. Prices were more than reasonable considering the suburb and there is fantastic coffee just across the street!
