“Great if you are looking for a lot of space”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

The size of my studio apartment was amazing - I have lived in much smaller places. The location was very central, especially to the University of Adelaide. My room was at the back so was quiet, although it had a strange little balcony that was enclosed in the roof over the food court downstairs. Dim lighting, outdated bathroom, bad internet connection (that you had to pay for). The kitchen was large and fairly well-equipped so you could cook if you wanted to.

The Mansions is as it says an old mansion so it's a lucky dip on the size shape and quality of your room. First the positives the location is very handy to shops and restaurants it's not as good as the Gouger Street and Market properties but it's still good. The separate lounge and kitchen is very nice but it's all a bit old and dated and covered in 1 inch of paint to cover up the age for christs sake couldn't open the kitchen window and I doubt any one could for the last ten coats of paint. The balcony rooms are good but it's all too old and unlike modern places with dishwashers and washing machines and dryers in the apartment at the Mansions you have to lug your washing up to the roof for the pay machines.

The normal room rates are highway robbery given the lack of amenities compared to other places, however if you can get a special at about $110 per night it's worth it then. If your paying above $130 you didn't look very hard at other better fitted out places.

We live in the Barossa and needed to stay in the city for a work function. Great location, close to the mall. Yes the nightclub is below it, but we were on the second floor and couldn't hear a thing! The room was tidy and spacious (we had an executive suite) and for $145.00 for the night you couldn't get much better around Adelaide.

The bed was comfy, the couch was cosy, and the kettle worked!

Great stay

This hotel is good for the price but is very basic and outdated. We have stayed here a couple of times and it is always clean and comfortable. The rooms are large have a good kitchen provided. Our bathroom on this stay was a bit smelly and in poor condition. Location is great. Would stay again if the price is right but don't book if you are wanting something new or flash.

I was perfectly happy with this place until the Saturday night when the fire alarm went off at midnight. Apparently due to something caused on a regular basis by the Hotel below. By the time we exited the building, the fire engine was pulling up and a huge crowd of suspicious drunken young men emerged from the hotel below !

When travelling from interstate, you want something easy, simple and not too expensive yes??

This place is great. I was visiting friends, and we all decided to spend a night in town and get an apartment. Their photo's dont make it look like much, but we were all pleasantly suprised.

Even though some people might look at the room as being 'old' or 'run down', i like to call it character. The room was perfectly clean and had everything we needed. The view we had from our balcony was great too! And being right next to Rundle Mall and Rundle Street was awesome. So close to great shopping, cafe's and bars/pubs.

Try not to pay too much attention to the bad reviews the hotel has gotten, because some people are just to hard to please... I seriously dont think there is anything wrong with this charming hotel.

We arrived after 10pm when there is no on site service. I really wanted to get wifi but this is for a charge but worse- you have to pay for this during the day so at night thee was no way to get it.
Having said this the rooms are spacious, clean and there were no other problems.
