“Smart, modern hotel in good location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2009

Enjoyed a week at this hotel in at Executive deluxe room. not much of a view on to an office block but we were ok with this as the hotel is in the middle of town, so we weren't staying there for the view. Internet was not included in the rate which is diappointing because at the price we paid for an executive deluxe we thought it would be and you had to pay a dear daily rate. Room was lovely, nicely furnished, 2 double wardrobes with mirror doors, well stocked mini bar, tv, a reasonable size and with a lovely bathroom. Spotlessly clean, comfy beds and nice white linen.
We would have liked a pool as we were staying a week but they don't have one. Location is good as you are at the end of the main shopping precinct so it is easy to walk into town to catch trams or buses. Staff were friendly and helpful. There is a guest laundry which is useful if you are travelling for a few weeks. Ate in the restaurant for dinner and found the food a little disappointing in flavour and the waiter had a condescending attitude so we didn't eat there again. We found Brunellis italian restaurant around the corner and it was fab for breakfast, lunch and dinner, good food, big portions and cheap.

  • Liked — comfy, smart, good location
  • Disliked — no pool, expensive interet rate, condescending waiter in restaurant

Stayed at the Majestic for two nights. We booked a standard room and were upgraded to a suite. Newly refurbished handsome rooms, well equipt and comfortable. Staff efficient and friendly and hotel in central location just around the corner from a very good selection of restaurants (Eros Ouzeri - great food). "Roof garden" an overstatement, share the roof with A/C units and view of multistory car park.

My wife & I stayed here on two occasions (4 nights) in November 2008.
We found the staff excellent, the rooms very comfortable & nicely decorated, & the location great for sightseeing on foot with loads of great restaurants within a five minute walk. Wish we had more like it in Canada.

The Majestic is OK, nothing to fault but at the same time, nothing particularly stunning about it either. The location is good, Adelaide is a very easy city to find your way round and after a 7 hour drive through Victoria and South Australia we got to it very easily without any hassle and without the help of sat nav, (certainly something that you couldn't do in must UK cities!). The room that we had was very spacious and well designed with a balcony area for us remaining smokers. Unlike the room though the hotel itself somehow feels cramped, the reception area feels quite closed in as do the corridors, it almost feels like the building was designed to fit in with the small amount of building land available: I guess that is often the case but it just felt noticeable here. The staff we came across were again 'OK' but not as warm and welcoming as the other places that we had stayed on our journey in Aus. The Roof Garden itself is really nothing to rave about and the Gym is probably the smallest I have ever seen, but I suppose at least they had one. If you are looking for a hotel in Adelaide that has good sized rooms and a good location within walking distance of lots of shops and restaurants then the Majestic would be ideal, but if staying somewhere that feels really special is crucial for you as part of a good holiday experience then perhaps give somewhere else a try.

First thing we did here was checkout the much promised "roof garden". The bar was shut and the garden was more window box than botanic. The view was of the car park which unless you have a fetish for brutalist architecture is less than majestic. The rooms are clean and smart but we found the check in unfriendly and unhelpful. Everything came as an extra $. The worst stay of two weeks in Australia. There must be better in Adelaide. I'm surprised to see it so high on tripadvisor - the first time that this site has let me down.

After reading all the reviews about Adelaide hotels, and because this was listed as the top hotel in Adelaide, we thought we'd try our luck. Our first impression of the hotel was that it was of good quality and friendly staff.

We stayed here for 3 nights over the weekend. After reading one review about room 117 (aparantly above a bar) we were hoping we wouldn't be anywhere near that room, however we ended up with room 105. This was on the first floor so had no balcony but was at the oposite end of the corridoor to room 117. We had a look at what could be the source of the noise, and basically there is a restaurant next door so they can see down into it, but it was not noisy whenever we walked past, so it was possibly a one-off. Being on the first floor, we were nearer to the road and the first night (Friday) I did get woken up by drunken people shouting (4am) and by the cars and you also over look a car park. However saying that, on the oposite side of the hotel you're only view was a car park, so at least on our side of the hotel we had the street to look at too. I would say the noise from the street wasn't really a big problem and I had the best nights' sleep the other two nights. Just bring ear plugs and maybe suggest a room on the same side but a higher floor. Oh and also, although the bed was sooo comfortable and huge, I found the pillow so hard it actually started to give me jaw ache! My partner thought they were comfortable, so only if you are as fussy as me, I would suggest bringing your own (as sad as it is!)

The location was great, turn left and you headed towards Rundall Mall....but the best cafes and restaurants were at the other end of Rundall Street (turn right from hotel).

The room was lovely, just like the photo's and the bathroom was very swanky and spacious. A great selection of tea and coffee and they were happy to fill it up on demand!

The rooftop garden was lovely, very chic and fantastic views - though a summer feature only!

All in all, a great hotel and friendly staff - why bother going anywhere else!

Adelaide suffers from a real lack of good quality hotels. The Majestic Roof Garden, in relative terms, is one of the best. This is probably because it is fairly new. It is generally comfortable, in a reasonable location, staff are friendly and helpful, and most of the fittings are in good condition. However, the bed was overly solid (I was informed in another review that this is what international customers want...), the breakfast is ridiculously overpriced ($30.00 - why do some hotels persist with this?), the towels were tiny, and the climate system was loud and intense (either hot or cold). So, that's why it doesn't get five stars. A colleague was staying at the Stamford (where I used to say), and reminded me of how tired the fittings and general feel of her hotel was, in comparison to the Majestic. So, all things considered, the Majestic Roof Garden is recommended, but only because it is in Adelaide, and there isn't a lot of choice.
