Quest on King William
Ranked #20 of 56 Hotels in Adelaide
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 7, 2008

Position ok but a bit far from the restaurant district in Gouger Street. My room was long, narrow and dark as it only had one unopening window at the end wall. This means zero ventilation and so is also probably the reason the room smelled of grease and the previous guests’ evening meal. I asked to change room but was told by the efficient but unfriendly receptionist that all rooms had one window... that would exclude any future stays for me.

The fridge and microwave were new, but the tiny two-plate portable electric stove definitely needs replacing. Bathroom ok. TV only visible from the sofa.

I think that places that charge over $100 a night should offer free broadband internet, as many places are now doing. Here it cost minimum AUD 13, adding nearly 10% to the cost of the room!

There are better options in Adelaide.

I thank you for your comments and will look into the issues which you have noted. The property resides in a heritage listed building and unfortunately, due to local council regulations and saferty issues, the windows are unable to be opened for guests.

I started staying at Quest on King William in December 2006 and have noticed great changes with service, cleanliness and overall feel during this period. There was a change of management in early 2007 which may have been the reason for this. Reception staff have been great and i now feel like part of the family.

The rooms seem brighter as the windows are now being cleaned and the views over the Adelaide skyline are amazaing (Especially at night!) All of the windows are double glazed, so there is no exterior noise that comes through.

TIP: Request a lower floor as these are newer (only four years old)
