My daughter and I stayed for 4 nights from 20th May, in separate rooms. We arrived about midday and were soon allocated our rooms, thanks to very helpful reception staff.
Both rooms have 2 double beds in them, good lighting, a nice sized bathroom, flat screen TV, fridge, kettle, coffee & tea etc. internet access, hairdryer etc.
The room had sufficient drawer space to put clothes away in, plus a good sized wardrobe. Unfortunately the rooms do not have an in-room safe, but safe deposit facilities are available at reception. Rooms were clean, and serviced daily.
The hotel does have a computer in reception for guest use, and ask you not to use it for more than 30 mins at a time, which I found to be perfectly fair.
The buffet breakfast (not included in rate I paid), were fine. I didn't bother with cooked breakfast option, but just settled for continental.
What did surprise me that the hotel bar was closed by about 10.30pm, this might be because the hotel was not that full, and it is winter.
I was aware when I booked that Hindley Street is where everybody hangs out at weekends, but even my 21 year old daughter didn't really enjoy it around here. One other thing we found most restaurants were closed by about 9pm, making getting dinner much later near impossible, with the exception of the Pancake House which is open 24/7. Did enjoy the casino though - less than 5 mins. from hotel. Also Rundle Mall is just a short walk away for shops etc.
Although the hotel does not have a self-service laundry, guests were welcome to use the facilities at their sister hotel in Currie Street, about 6 minute walk away.
We both thought the beds to be very comfortable and enjoyed good nights sleeps.
Overall we found the reception staff and concierge, very helpful, courteous and friendly when we asked anything.
