If you are looking for 5 star - look further. If you are looking for a fantastic location right on the beach front - then highly recommended. Don't let the outside dissuade you. This is true art deco building that has been very well renovated.
There were 17 of us, which is difficult to accommodate in one area at a reasonable price. Seawall was fantastic for this purpose. The apartments were hugh, which meant we did not feel that we were in each other way. The apartments are bright and airy, giving an even greater sense of spaciousness. They were extremely clean with everything there to feel like home.
Location was sensational -lots of fit looking boys and girls to look at running along the beach! The sound of the waves crashing on your doorstep really adds to the beach feel.
It was a short walk to Glenelg and the various pubs. Never felt at anytime threatened walking from the Seawall to the main road and back, very late at night. Easy to get into Adelaide proper with the tram.
I can say that all of us had a ball and would highly recommend to anyone who didn't want to stay in a chain hotel. I want to come back in summer.
