“A surprising experience”
Reviewed April 19, 2013 via mobile

I only stayed for one night and needed to be close to the Women's & Children's Hospital so looked for somewhere outside the city centre. This was a delightful find and superb value. I will definitely return.

I stayed 1 night in a 1 bedroom apartment at the back of the property. The room was spacious and clean with everything we needed. Washing machine and dryer in the bathroom. Full size ironing board, iron and hairdrier. Full kitchen facilities.
Free WIFI was fast and didn't drop out. There seemed to be plenty of parking for a Saturday. The pub next door was fairly noisy, but didn't disturb my sleep.
The grounds have lovely paved areas and manicured gardens set off with clever lighting. The open air hallways smelt like rubbish bins, but this is my only complaint about this pleasant accommodation in a great location.

Room Tip: The Store Cafe across the road does a great breakfast and coffee.

When my son, who now lives in Melbourne, and I decided to visit Adelaide I actually checked on line to find a hotel and was pleasantly surprised to see these apartments. The two bedroom apartment was ideal for a mum and son on holiday together and had the added bonus of secure parking! The only thing I could suggest to improve the apartment we had was to re-groute the bathroom tiles, they were starting to look a bit tired. There's also a free bus that stops round the corner which takes you into the city although many things to visit are within walking distance. If I was to go to Adelaide again I would use these apartments!

The Old Lion has been a favourite for years. It is well situated in a pedestrian friendly section of North Adelaide. The zoo is 10 minutes walk, and the city, museums, and Rundle Mall another 5.

I appreciate that it is well maintained and clean. The self catering facilities are good. the beds comfortable. For those not cooking, there are breakfast, lunch and dinner options within a few minutes walk.

Room Tip: Rooms on the side towards Melbourne Street can hear the sounds from the pub next door. There are...

My husband stays here for business several times a year and we always stay over the Womadelaide weekend. We stay in a one bedroom apartment. The room is always clean, comfortable and quiet and it is only a 10 minute walk to the Womad site. The rooms are pretty boring but have a reasonable sized lounge area and kitchenette. The kitchenette could probably be a bit better set up as there is a minimal amount of crockery, cutlery and cooking implements but certainly enough for simple meals though there was no chopping board and reception couldn't find one for me. The lounge area has a comfortable couch and a dining table and chairs.
This would be also a good location if you needed to go to anywhere on the northern end of Adelaide like the zoo, the cricket ground, the art gallery or the university. It is a bit of a hike into the centre of Adelaide but you could always get a bus or a taxi. There is a free tourist bus (the Connector Bus)nearby but it doesn't run very often. There is also the more frequent metro bus (99C) which does a circuit along North Terrrace, East Terrace, Wakefield st.

Room Tip: I think the rooms at the front might be a bit noisy so ask for one at the back. Also ask for a groun...

Mixed reviews so decided to stay for just one night. Wish we'd stayed there on our other nights that we were in Adelaide. Nice location. Very convenient having free undercover parking. Great carpeted suite - perfect for crawling baby. Yeah, noisy outside but it quietened down come bedtime. Spacious, comfortable and clean. Booked thru the Entertainment Book so good value.

Don't like to be negative when reviewing unless really standout but underwhelming comes to mind stayed one night in 3 bed penthouse paid near 300 it was just 3 star & very noisy in morning facing main road on a friday
I cannot say I would stay there again but it was OK, main attraction is the local pub on the corner
& lots of restaurants & fairly upmarket suburb
Hopefully they have a plan to upgrade the rooms sooner rather than later.

Room Tip: Try to find something at the back of the front units to kill the traffic noise
