“Great position”
Reviewed May 2, 2014

Stayed on ground floor of 2 story building for 9 nights. Some problems with noise from upstairs - however management handled it well and did their best. Great location and quirky accom. Well serviced and would return but ask for a top floor appt.

Room Tip: Choose a room facing beach and go for an upstairs appt

Great location, waking up to the sea. Close to everything. Make sure you stay where you have a view over the sea. If not enjoy the tables for drinks and enjoy the aspect and passing traffic. 1234567890

Room Tip: Make sure you have a room with a view over the sea.

Thank you Russell H for your lovely comments. I am glad to hear that you appreciated our wonderful location and sea views - we were lucky enough to see a mother and baby dolphin out there this morning - it is a pretty special place!
Hope to see you again soon,

The room was very clean, supplied with everything we needed in the kitchen. Bed was comfortable. Bathroom nice size. Free laundry. View and sounds of beach wonderful. No traffic sounds. Great to have bbq's outsidewith lots of weathered wood tables. Service great. Antique nautical theme decor outside and throughout the facility fun, quaint and provide great atmosphere in this quiet, non high rise facility which is close to jetty road, restaurants, shopping, the famous tram and right on the boardwalk and beach.. Highly recommend for families, groups, couples or individuals.

Thank you dixie dirt for your high praise. It sounds like we ticked all the boxes for you - comfy beds, quirky themed decor, quiet and in such a wonderful location.
I am glad that you appreciated the fact that we are not a high rise shiny box-style apartment block, we are very proud of our unique heritage buildings.
Thank you again for your recommendation and we hope to see you next time you are back in sunny Glenelg,
Best wishes,
Rachael

We had 12 of our Ultimate Frisbee team stay at the Seawall. Facilities, location, pricing were all great. If the tournament was held in a similar location again in the future, I would definitely book Seawall again!

Thanks for staying with us at Seawall Jr B!
It was great to have you staying with us for the Ultimate Frisbee Championships held locally at Westminster School. I am glad the weather fined up for you. The grassed promenade in front is perfect for a hucking a bullet.
Thank you for recommending us as an ideal place for teams to stay. Our flexible room types and communal decking area are great for groups to get together for a post match BBQ.
Hope to see you next time you are in Adelaide,
Kind regards,
Rachael

Overall a wonderful stay near the waterfront.

Quiet location with pedestrian traffic only at front door.

VERY quiet - The Crows Nest was perfect for 1-2 people, & no noise whatsoever from other units.

We stayed in the 'Courtyard'. My husband and I were very excited, as we had spent ages poring over pictures on the internet to find somewhere lovely to stay for his birthday. The website leads you to believe that this room has a beautiful private courtyard for you to enjoy - not the case, The courtyard is shared with three other rooms. There was no air-conditioning in the bedroom, which made sleeping less enjoyable than it could have been. Over the weekend the car park was full, with several spaces being taken up by guests parking their trailers in the spots. This forced us to park quite a way down the street and walk to our rooms in the dark when we arrived back late. This really disappointed me. The floor around the toilet did not appear to be mopped as there were scum lines.

For a otherwise beautiful room, in a fantastic location, the lack of attention to details was disappointing.

Dear NadineM480, I am sorry to hear that you were not wowed by your recent stay. It is a shame we couldn't give you a view of the sea - coming from the red center I imagine you would have loved a room like The Landing, although I note that you specifically chose this courtyard apartment.
I have addressed the lapse in cleanliness with the housekeeping supervisor. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.
I do hope you will give us another chance to impress you next time you are back in Adelaide,
Kind regards,
Rachael & the Seawall team

We have stayed here twice now and both times have had a lovely stay. Clean, comfortable, all the facilities you need (full kitchen, free wifi, onsite parking, lovely bathroom with spa) and the perfect, peaceful beachfront location. A little pricey, but if you want a little splurge, then it's well worth it!
