We stayed here one night prior to setting off on a long drive to Brisbane, (2,000 kms). We were guests of a company, so our expectations were not high. The room was good; clean comfortable and spacious enough. The bar was big and fairly grand and the service attentive but not intrusive. We had dinner in the restaurant which was good, but not outstanding.
However the following morning we had breakfast in the restaurant and boy were we impressed. It is without doubt the best breakfast that I have ever had anywhere in the world. The range was wide, the quality very high and only small portions were cooked so each guest was treated to freshly cooked faire.
We had a slight issue as we booked out as someone else was paying for the room and they could not find the payment. I was kept waiting an unacceptable length of time until a more experienced member of staff spotted my irritated demeanour and intervened, resolving it immediately. Meanwhile the parking concierge had been driving my car around the reception area to keep it free, so they did their best.
I will always stay here in future when in Adelaide; just for that breakfast!
