“Perfect location and stunning views!”
Reviewed February 26, 2014

Seawall Apartments is located in a fantastic spot in Glenelg - there is a footpath, the grass and the ocean at your doorstep! It is also a mere 5-minute walk to Jetty Road where all the cafes, restaurants and shops are.

I highly recommend staying here in Adelaide! :)

Absolutely brilliant place, just far enough away from the bright lights of Glenelg but still very close to walk.
Great value for money at the rate i paid $599 a night, but looked into Xmas & New Year & would not pay what Seawall are asking as not worth that sort of money in my opinion.
We stayed in the Boathouse ( 6 adults ) & loved it.
Says 4 bedroom but this is stretching it as 2 singles in a room with no airco or fans & i think poor value especially in hot weather.
Overall it was a great place & we all loved the weekend away.
Would not hesitate to stay there again for the rate we paid as good value.

Thanks CarlR for writing a review of your recent stay, we really appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts with the wider TripAdvisor community.
I'm glad to hear that you rated our location highly - we are in a fabulous spot here on Glenelg beach front - just far enough away from Jetty Road's restaurants and shopping to get in a stroll after dinner!
We look forward to the opportunity to welcome you back again next time you are in Adelaide,
Kind regards,

Some places you just want to keep to yourself, not sharing it with any one because it is so special you don't want it to become even more popular or unobtainable.

The Seawall Apartments would be special without the family and staff but the combination of the two are without comparison any where in the world for this unique beachside experience.

Here is a place that without a doubt fulfils and represents the ultimate culture and experience of Glenelg and its personality. It is clean, polished, unique and so friendly that there is a sadness when you leave. Thank you so very much. We loved it all. Helen Scutchings.

Thank you so much for a wonderfully pleasant stay.

Room Tip: Why not, go the beachfront.

Very comfortable Courtyard apartment located on esplanade.Good amenities and helpful reception.
Only downside was the bathroom which had not been updated as they said it was being in response to a previous review.Otherwise very quiet and enjoyable

Room Tip: Courtyard apartment is fine but you do not have your own area outside

I come to stay at Seawall apartment on a regular basis for the past one year or so for a project in Adelaide. I have been staying in many different rooms, the condition of the appatment has always been so tidy and comfortable. Beach front location, 10 mins stroll to Jetty Road, beatifully furbished rooms and relaxing ambient - it is highly recommended.

We stayed 5 nights with our 4 children in one of the sea-facing first floor apartments. Great location, which allowed us to make full use of traffic-free paths, grassed areas and the beach. Proximate (but not too close) to shops, restaurants and tram. The apartment itself was nice (heritage feel and high ceilings), but nothing that made it exceptional. Most apartments in that price range include a pool, spa, tennis court, gym or similar. The apartment didn't have a dishwasher or laundry (shared laundry downstairs was fine though). It was serviced daily though, which was good. The verandah could have been bigger to encourage us to BBQ outside. Overall, very good, but we wouldn't describe as luxury.

Room Tip: Definitely stay facing the sea. The ground floor apartment had a good sized entertaining area.

We are glad to hear that you found our apartments clean and well appointed, and enjoyed the facilities and the location.
We are in such a lovely position here on the south esplanade - no traffic, just lawn between us and the seashore, and just far enough away from Jetty road shopping and dining to allow a short sunset stroll after dinner!
Hopefully we will see you again next summer.
All the best,

We stayed 3 nights. Apartments front row/ facing the ocean seemed to me way nicer. We had a "garden apartment". Standard differs strongly from what you see from pics in the web. So no bathtub with a view (to the ocean), but rather in the bedroom, no window to open, dark. Same was true for the bedroom upstairs. Wouldn't want to spend a night there during hot summer. So, the apartment was absolutely average and nothing special. It was clean though. Location of Sewall Apt was ok, next to board walk, 5 min walk to restaurants & bars and train to the city. Interesting: no noise from the airport-which is close. Beach next to the Hotel was very small. Terrace in front of Seawall Apt could be better in shape. Old chairs/ table/ equipment. To sum it up: rooms were clean, but absolutely nothing special, rather average, hence too expensive of what was offered.

Room Tip: If Seawall Apt then I would suggest to get an apparment facing the see, first floor or up. Ground fl...

Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts on your recent stay 37Bavaria.

I am glad to hear that you found our quiet, beachfront, traffic free location OK.

We do have 22 quite unique apartments and each has a different layout.
We try to convey a range of the options available through our online imagery and have extensive photos, room floor-plans and individual apartment reviews on our website so guests can select a room that perfectly meets their needs and wants and can 'make sure you have front row' if that is what is important to you.

I assure you that all of our apartments are well air-conditioned and remain cool - even during the recent record hot summer that we have just experienced.

Kind regards,
Rachael
