Absolutly perfect for what I needed. Room was basic but very clean and had everything I needed. Yay!! Finally a hotel that had decent sized tea mugs!!! Nothing worse than drinking from a teeny tea cup in one gulp. These were decent sized mugs with a proper handle to hold - I know, minor detail - but I love my...

Like other reviewers, I have to say that the motel was clean. Other than that, it is a very basic, institution close to the road. Had it not been for reasonable access to the airport for a really early morning flight, I would have gone elsewhere. A very amusing/irritating aspect to a stay in this motel is the $200 bond...

All though this motel was very clean and very comfortable. I thought it was overprice at $150 a night. Bathroom is very dated It could do with a revamp. The motel it is on a main road some rooms get the morning traffic noise. The price is obviously rated on its location to Adelaide airport. They do run a shuttle...

Although handy for those over-night stays when flying out early the next morning - the room was very basic and very close to the main road - which may not give you a good nights sleep if you are a lite sleeper? Certainly not worth the $150 just for a basic small room. We had originally booked into the Glenelg...

Since there is no on-airport accommodation at Adelaide airport, this hotel is the next best thing for a stopover between flights, being just a few kms away. Aviator's Lodge is pretty much your standard hotel/motel, breakfast served on a tray, and rooms basic but clean and functional. The big plus with this property is the $5 airport transfer, which takes...

Stayed with my partner and child. Room was small with a Queen Sized bed and King Single. Place was clean and provided the basics such as T.V, Kettle, small sachets of tea and coffee and little containers of milk. There were not shops nearby to purchase snacks and meals at the restaurant had finished when we arrived at 8.30pm. We...

Unfortunately we left booking accommodation to the last minute, and we booked in at the Aviator's lodge. Never have we felt so unwelcome when checking in to any accommodation. Totally over priced $175 AUD for a shoe box, you have to be kidding! Had to pay for internet access, and don't dare ask for a wake up call, that will...

My daughter and I stayed here while in Adelaide to catch a flight. The lady at the front desk was really lovely and helpful, organized our shuttle to the airport and back, and I also stored our car while we were away. I can't fault the friendly service. I also had dinner at the restaurant twice, was beautiful :-)
