“Good to know”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014

We spent 2 nights here. The reception staff are very helpful indeed and the hotel is well situated close to Central Adelaide. The room was spacious and the bathroom adequate. There is a pleasant lounge to sit in. The only complaint would be breakfast. There is no point in making it inclusive if it is rubbish and it was. Little choice and the room is like a school dining hall.

Stayed for one night. Hotel is in a pretty building and rooms were comfortable. Location is about 10 minute walk to the CBD but there are a few restaurants nearby. Hotel has a slight backpacker hostel feel about it in the communal areas with a kitchen on each floor for guests to use. Very friendly staff.

Swift an efficient check-in.
Great double room with reclined lounge chair and foot stool.

Kitchen facilities were great, everything you could possibly need.

Great location, only a short walk to all sights and amenities.

Excellent service; reception staff were particularly attentive and very personable.

Breakfast was fine but I feel they need to either make it more of a spectacle or stop doing it. Currently the space is too small for the amount of guests and the choice of food lacks compared to relative hotels.

Overall, a great experience and we would definitely return.

I stayed in this hotel for two nights and overall it was a pleasant stay. The staff was friendly, the room was clean and tidy. The free continental breakfast was a plus, nothing special but it was good enough to start the day. The location was pretty good, not too far from the main attraction and the city. The price was reasonable. Overall, a very enjoyable stay and will perhaps stay in this hotel again, next time I am in Adelaide.

This hotel is a little away from the CBD of Adelaide, but not far enough to cause me any real issues. It is also near a quaint restaurant strip along Hutt Street, which looked very interesting and inviting.
This hotel offers very comfortable and reasonably appointed rooms, which were very adequate for my business trip needs - most importantly a quiet room with a comfy bed and a desk/ work area.
Whilst there is no american style buffet breakfast available, I found the communal style continental breakfast very good. I really don't need all the extras that come with the full breakfast, but if that is the highlight of your stay in a hotel you wish to stay somewhere else.
I managed to chat with different people each morning at breakfast, so I found it a great way to meet people and start the day.
Depending on your needs whilst travelling, this hotel has very reasonable rates and if the location suits your purpose for visiting Adelaide, then I can recommend it. The price for the quality is very good value.

Room Tip: Most rooms appeared to be off the street - all would be quiet.

We stayed here for 5 days in one of the family rooms, which are very spacious. Clean rooms. The hotel is located 15 mins away from the shopping district but not a problem unless you don't want to walk around. Extremely friendly and helpful staff.

I stayed at the hotel for six nights to watch the cricket. After my last stay in Adelaide three years ago at a rather poor hotel this by comparison was very good and excellent value for money. The staff were extremly friendly and helpful. The room allocated was spacious but as it was located at the rear had no view whatsoever(a brick wall!) but had the advantage of being quiet. A continental breakfast was served which,for me, was adequate but perhaps lacking in choice if you were used to a large hotels. The location is good with the city centre only a 10 minute stroll away and a free tram service between the North and South terraces makes getting to The Adelaide Oval easy. This is the place I will return to for my next visit.
