“Needs a spruce up”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013

This place was only just ok. Rooms just clean enough, a bit of mould around, generally seems to be very dated décor. They seemed to be having electrical problems with no lights in hallways.

Pool was good.

Breakfast was one of the better I have had in a hotel setting, they are usually poor.

Upside is onsite parking at no charge, I would probably go to somewhere closer to the centre of town or out near the beaches.

Thank you so much for your honest feedback. We really appreciate it and will take on board all of your suggestions and endeavour to continue to improve our property. We are continuing to refresh the appearance and facilities of our guest amenities including the introduction of new furnishings, flat screen TV’s into all rooms and suites as well as fresh paint to all hotel interior & external areas.
Being a small hotel on the edge of the city parklands we enjoy being able to offer our guests a welcoming environment and an alternative to the typical busy city hotels. With complimentary inclusions like car parking & Wi-Fi in public areas we're also great value. Our resort style undercover pool is an ideal spot to relax and enjoy a beverage from the adjacent bar or order a snack from one of our menus.
Just a short stroll from the hotel you will find the Hutt St restaurant district where you can find a wide variety of cuisines to enjoy. Shopping areas of the city are a longer yet easy walk and we offer a 24 hour reception desk where our friendly staff can assist you with bus or tram time tables and any other needs you may have during your stay.

Stayed 4 nights in a large upstairs refurbished room facing the ring road. There was minimal traffic noise as the windows are double glazed. Nice large TV with limited channels. There were two towels, a bath mat and two facewashers provided along with soap, shampoo and conditioner. Twinings tea provided in room.
Fully cooked breakfast was good but didnt vary during our stay. Eggs are "cooked to order" but my request for an omlete was turned down because "all the ingredients they would use are available in the bain marie". Plenty of pastries fruit and cereal on offer. Basic coffee or Twinings tea are included with breakfast but cuppacinos and lattes need to be purchased.
Didn't try the restaurant for dinner.
There was an over abundance of eating establishments on Hutt Street within a ten minute walk. The CBD is a 30 munute walk. Busses available just outside the hotel.
The under cover swimming pool was crystal clear and a welcome relief after a hard day.
Free on site parking.
Very helpful and friendly staff. We would stay again

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your wonderful stay with us. We really appreciate the time taken to do so and the praise for our staff and property.
It is great to hear that you enjoyed the comforts of our completed refurbished rooms. As part of our ongoing refurbishment we are moving through the property refreshing paint, installing new furniture and flat screen TV’s into all rooms.
Breakfast in 176 Bar & Grill is available daily and offers the choice of a Continental selection or Full Cooked buffet style. Both options allow you to graze at your leisure on the assorted fresh cut & preserved fruits, yoghurts, cereal and pastries. The cooked option includes sautéed mushrooms, tomatoes, hash browns and bacon. On occasion various specials pop up like frittata, sausages and pancakes. Our chef offers eggs cooked your way, fried, poached or scrambled. We have begun to receive greater volume of requests for omelettes and when possible our chefs will be happy accommodate your desires.
Our resort style undercover pool area is a fantastic spot to unwind with the bar adjacent you can also enjoy a beverage or order from our variety of menu options.
Thank you for the glowing recommendation of our service and facilities. We hope to see you again soon!

I am just home from three days, (two nights) in Adelaide

I stayed here at Tiffins on the Park. I had read the reviews before I booked. Bruce at reception was excellent on the phone when I made my reservation. Everything he told me was true, I was made to feel welcome upon arrival

I was more than happy with my stay. Some aspects of the building may be a little tired but it is solid, my room was perfect. Clean, fresh, comfortable bed, great shower, I was in the rear of the building and it was totally silent. The bar fridge was silent also
The air con was fabulous, with the free parking there was always a space. The staff were simply fantastic. It's easy to find, it's well located on the south side of the city and I loved the green canopied driveway

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to family and friends and I will certainly stay there on future Adelaide visits

Thanks for great hospitality and a great place to stay

Best wishes AA

Room Tip: At the back, my room was 119 and don't open the alarmed emergency exit like I mistakenly did

I would say it is a 2 1/2 star in USA. Needs some updating. Some "mold or dirt" on shower base. Very dirty windows, but no view anyway. Parking good and free. Bed ok. Quiet location. No lift to 2nd floor. Staff friendly. Need a car to get to town area - about 20 min walk.

Thank you so much for your honest feedback. We really appreciate it and will take on board all of your suggestions and endeavour to continue to improve our property.
Since our new management team came on board 1yr ago we have been tirelessly working to improve our guests comfort level and the presentation of the property, inside and out, while still maintaining the value for money we are known for. On your next visit you will see further evidence of this, over the Christmas & New Year break we have painted several more of our guest rooms, 176 Bar & Grill and also the exterior of the property. Outside we have removed most of the old shade cloth canopies and overgrown garden beds. We had added new chairs in 176 Bar & Grill as well as new booths in the bar area. We have started to re-grout our guest bathrooms 1 at a time, this is a lengthy process but is well under way.
As we are a smaller hotel on the fringe of the CBD park lands we are a great alternative to a city hotel and only a short stroll to the Hutt St restaurant district. Shopping areas of the city are a longer yet easy walk and we offer a 24 hour reception desk where our friendly staff can assist you with bus or tram time tables and any other needs you may have during your stay.
We have a wonderful team of staff and are pleased to know you found them to be the highlight of your stay. We hope that on your next visit to Adelaide you stay with us and can experience all the improvements for yourself.

Tiffins is where I stay regularly for business due to its location. The restaurant menu is slightly eclectic but good food is the result. The rooms are standard but no pen and paper is unusual. The mattress could be turned regularly - it can be uncomfortable sleeping on a hillside! The shower tile grouting needs cleaning. Staff are very friendly. The bartenders have a good memory too!

This hotel is very tired and in severe need of a makeover. Whilst clean, the shower tiles were cracked and need fresh grout. Overall the room and hotel give off an atmosphere of "shabby". The location is pretty good but I think there are better alternatives for the price.

A great location as it is close to cafes and the city. Rooms are a little tired, but staff always efficient so I would say it is a very good three star place to stay. Feels safe too. Free car parking, always welcomed. Food is excellent.
