“Excellent hotel in central Adelaide”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2012

Helpful and friendly staff. Very nice and clean rooms (seemed recently refurbished). My only complaint would be the high tech mini-bar fridge with a transparent door that gives quite intense lighting (very annoying at night if you don't want to sleep with the light on). Would definitely recommend this hotel.

Stayed here on business this week for three nights after finding a great deal on Wotif.com. Location was very handy to all local needs and unusually roomy parking was in house for $15/night, which is very reasonable for Adelaide. Welcoming reception staff on hand and even offered me free membership to the Rockford Corporate Club- smart move once they heard I'm frequently in town on business.The room was outstanding with almost every conceivable need on hand, even an Ipad with free wifi and a large wall mounted lcd tv. The king size bed was huge and very comfy. Nice supportive pillows and "gentle on the eyes" flouro spot lights on the bed head was a smart idea for those that like to do laptop work in bed. The bathroom was well laid out and the shower was A1. I have to make make mention of the toilet seat and the fact it slowly lowers itself (had me fascinated). Due to a very long day, I ordered room service on the first night and had the entree serves of 1) Lemon grass peppered squid with mango and 2) Roasted field mushroom with caramelized onion and truffle sauce. Guys, these two filling meals were simply MAGNIFICENT and I regret not taking photos for the Trip Advisor Family- I'd go back just for these meals again!! FYI- I'm in the food packaging industry, so I'd like to think I know a smart chef when i see one and folks, there is one here.Breakfast was included in the deal and it was a good offering, but could have used more fresh fruit on offer and not full sized carrots?? I've stayed in many hotels over the years in my line of work and this establishment is one of the best and yes I'm happy to use this address as my "office" whilst in town.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the nearby nightclub

The room was great for the family. Everything was very clean and good value. The bathroom and space were reasonable.The breakfast was delicious . However the car park was difficult to park the car. The staff were very friendy.

This is a really lovely hotel, the rooms are large with modern facilities, restaurant excellent. Its only drawback is its location in the red light area, but its is not a dangerous or threatening area, just a few strip clubs nearby. I would definately stay here again.

We have struggled over the years to find a really good hotel at a reasonable price for trips to our home town. This one ticks all the boxes - well appointed rooms, double glazing to keep the noise to a minimum, fabulous room service, comfortable beds, free wi fi and really excellent service.
