“2nd Chance?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2013

I have stayed at this hotel on and off for business over the past 4 years, sometimes it is great other times bad, unfortunately this time was so so. Check-in was good and was upgraded to 1Bed Suite which was appreciated. Room was fantastic very spacious, small kitchen (I didn't use) separate lounge and king size bed.

Bathroom was spacious, however the shower leaked every time due to the design and placement of the door so had to use a towel as the bathmat.

I think the staff are the biggest problem at the hotel, If they went that little extra to make you feel welcome, valued and were attentive to customer needs than this hotel would be my choice when I stay in Adelaide.

The hotel was very inviting, comfortable, clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this hotel to couples not so much family as night life in this main strip of night clubs was a little too loud and busy.

Great hotel, it's in a very good location very close to shops, restaurants and caffes, service by the staff was excelent, they would attend to all requests promptly. Breakfast was very good with a large selection of various foods. It also has a restaurant. Note; if you are driving and need car parking space, make sure you book car park spot when booking your room as car park spaces at the hotel are limited, however, there are other public car parks in the area.

Rockford in Adelaide was neat, tidy and well located. Easy place to make as a base for local sight seeing. Pleasant breakfast and comfortable rooms. Made booking on the net easily. Good value all round.

This hotel appears to be run on a shoe string. The first impression is good with freindly and efficient , but it goes downhill from their. Most staff try hard but they just don't make it. Housekeeping is poor and the shower taps are incorrectly labeled, showing hot when it should show cold. Not one of my favorites.

Stayed for just one night recently on business. The room was very comfortable, clean and nicely appointed. Slept well despite a little bit of noise from outside. Dined at the restaurant for dinner and breakfast and both were good. Service also was efficient and pleasant throughout. It's not the nicest area of town, and at night probably not the safest if you're on your own, but overall, good value in a CBD location.
