Majestic Old Lion Apartments

Reviewed August 31, 2013

We arrived in Adelaide following the long drive from Melbourne and were warmly greeted and check in was quick and simple. One issue is that there is nowhere immediately adjacent to the hotel to park in whilst checking in. We had a two bedroom apartment on the first floor (note there are no lifts) the rooms where clean and had everything we required.
One other issue is that the apartments can be directly accessed from the street so security could be an issue. The apartments are next to a hotel so ask for one away from the hotel. We didn't have any problem with noise. We enjoyed our stay at the Majestic Old Lion Apartments

Very handy location and great place to stay for a family. Although the apartments have been decorated and kept quit older style, but they are spacious and Clean. Serviced daily. Comfortable beds. The only downside was the shower over the bath and access to it, which wasn't very easy. They could've done with only shower without ant bath. Otherwise everything else was great. Will stay again.

Our family stayed a total of five days in the Majestic Old Lion Hotel while visiting Adelaide. The hotel is very clean, spacious & quiet. The staff was very helpful. The laundry and kitchen facilities were good. The hotel is located in a nice quiet neighborhood within walking distance of most of Adelaide's attractions. Free parking is safe and secure. I would recommend this hotel for a family visiting Adelaide.

Room Tip: Requesting a room on the first floor will help avoid having to carry bags up stairs. No elevator at...

We were a party of 4 adults 2 children with 2 king beds and bunks. Situated well for eating out or buying takeaways, and there's a park very close nearby. Spacious unit with dining table for 6. Small kitchen but adequate. Only one toilet and it was in the bathroom. The shower screen had been attached incorrectly to the bath, and thus the shower flooded the floor continuously. Would stay again if with family.

Great location - near shops, cafes, restaurants, etc. Good-sized apartment, well-looked after and in great condition. Quiet environment despite being so close to the city. The staff were friendly and helpful. One parking slot was an added bonus as we had rented a car for the duration of our stay in Adelaide. Would definitely stay here again. We were a couple with 9-year old twins.

Room Tip: Electric blankets on all the beds are a bonus if traveling during the winter months.

Regularly stay the old lion. Rooms are always very clean, separate bedrooms from living areas. Outside area very clean and well maintained. Only stay here for business purposes, has very little in regards of entertainment for kids/families. Great stay every time.

We stayed here for three nights for business and whilst the location is within a nice walk to the CBD and convention centre, with nice shops and convenient businesses nearby. However, the facilities have been poorly maintained (toilet roll holder nearly falling off), abused by previous guests (some black smears on the curtains) or are just inadequate.

In particular for me was the pathetic internet speed of 0.1mbps from the "high speed" broadband, which was really frustrating. Even at 3am speeds didn't reach 1mbps - terrible.

Reception staff were okay - there always seemed to be one who didn't know what they were doing and another on hand to correct the other!

Cleanliness was generally good, although some dust in areas of low use, but this didn't really bother me.
