“Very satisfied!”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Hotel is central to all things around Glenelg. Rooms were very clean and bed comfy! Staff were very pleasant and helpful. My second time here and will certainly use again. Only downside to the rooms was the lack of soundproofing between rooms in regards to the use of showers etc in the morning.

Very friendly staff & rooms are clean & tidy. Great location being a 2 minute walk to Jetty Road shops and restaurants and the tram stop into the city. beach is also a 5 minute walk and the Beach House is straight across the road for the kids. Have been staying here for years.

Booked this on a deal with Booking.com which included a queen exec room with Internet and breakfast.
Room was very noisy as we were near the reception and despite complaining to the staff, nothing was done and no one appeared to be interested.
A/c was very noisy, even on quiet mode and the indicator lights on the A/c were very bright (they were above the bed).
Very strange arrangement for breakfast, you order it the previous night and they bring it to your room as there is no restaurant/breakfast room. Having said that the breakfast was okay.
In a very good location, very central for Glenelg with the shops/cafes and restaurants a couple of minutes walk away. The beach is again only minutes away.
The hotel has free parking but there aren't too many spaces so this could be an issue at busy times.

Room Tip: Avoid Room 6 at all costs - very noisy. The room directly opposite 6 would also be very noisy Hotel...

Great location, close to Jetty Road and very close to the beach. Staff were very friendly and most of all helpful. It is so central to Glenelg you don't need your car, you can just park it and leave it in the secure parking. As we were attending a wedding the staff were kind enough to allow us to leave the car in the carpark on the morning of our checkout whilst we attended the after wedding Brunch at Scool Cafe just across the road below the Oaks. The rooms have been recently renovated and the beds were very comfy ensuring 2 great nights sleep after a long days travel to Adelaide. It was a fantastic place to stay and I will be staying there again on our next visit to Adelaide!

This is a nice old motel located just two blocks from the beach. It is also just one block from the tram that takes you on a pleasant ride to central Adelaide. It is best to get off at Victoria Square which is within walking distance of King William Street which is the main street, the Central Market which was built in the 1800s and has about 200 food stalls, Chinatown where the food is very good, Rundle Mall which is a pedestrian only street and the main shopping area, the East End on Rundle Street which has great restaurants in converted warehouses from the 1800s, and North Terrace which has government buildings such as the state museum, art gallery and the main railway station.

If you are a group of 4 you should book the apartment with two bedrooms and two bathrooms and a shared big living room. Internet Wifi for free on demand. 2 minutes walking distance to the beautiful Glenelg beach and the restaurant/bar street. Perfect stop for doing your laundry, just the washing powder was empty, we bought a new one and left it in there for the next :-)

Hotel was so central that once you parked your car, you just didn't need it until your departure. Just a short walkover to the beach, around corner from shopping and cafe/restaurants, and another short walk from the mariner were there a some of Glenelg's best restaurants. The rooms are great and there is on site parking. Great value.
