“A Great Stay!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2006

After a 15 hour flight from LA thru Aukland, Melbourne and the trials of retreiving baggage, locating a taxi that could handle 7 huge bags 2 adults and 2 teens, we arrived at Director's, not knowing what to expect. Don't let the small check-in reception put you off, the rooms are great! We had two rooms - one for the parents and one for the teenagers and both were exceptionally clean and neat. We had a few anxious moments to get the heater to work, but if one reads the instructions (Duh!) left on the writing desk, it all is good. Water pressure and plentiful hot H2O was so appreciated. Beds were comfy. We had a full kitchenette in both rooms and the supplies were just what we needed - tea, coffee, milk in the fridge and cold water in a pitcher.

Best yet, we had to check out the next am to take the bus and ferry over to Kangaroo Island and were stressing about all that luggage! The front desk staff suggested at our check-in, that it would be OK if we left some of what we didn't need at the hotel in a locked bin, to pick up on our return trip. That was so wonderful and made the whole SA leg of our journey much easier.

I highly recommend Directors and commend their management team for providing us first-time visitors to OZ a huge welcome!

This is a great little hotel near all the Restaurants in Adelaide. We paid a very reasonable price to stay here and we received a clean and comfortable room that met all our needs. On check in we upgraded to a studio room for an extra $15 per night and this gave us a microwave, toaster and kitchen utensils to reheat our own food. Definitely worthwhile doing as we did not have to go out and eat every night.

The access to the entrance of the hotel was from a dark squalid side street and this first impression was not nice at all. The room itself was not bad even if rather small. It offered all you may need. The area is very near to many restaurants. The price is adequate for what you get but nothing more
