I stayed here as a single female traveller for 16 nights and felt very relaxed, safe and comfortable in the motel at all times. The building is full of character - high ceilings, period light fittings and decorative wallpapers and carpets, making a real change from a lot of modern motels.
Being on a tight budget and staying for some time, having breakfast included every morning, a fridge in the room and guest laundry facilities was very useful. The hosts David and Andrew couldn't have been more helpful.
The North Adelaide area itself is really nice, with lots of houses dating from the early 1900s and I enjoyed wandering through the residential streets as a change from the tourist spots. The walk into Adelaide CBD is about 25 minutes and is a pleasant walk but the free bus does stop just down the road from the motel.
I found Princes Lodge to be great value for money, I had a fantastic stay and would definitely return if looking for accommodation in Adelaide again.
