We stayed here for three nights in total over two separate stays and were very pleased throughout. Our rooms were both spacious & clean, whilst the staff were both friendly and very helpful at all times. The few negative points to note were the poor views from both of our rooms; allowing young children to run around far too noisily...

We stayed for 1 night in the Studio Spa Suite and got the Romantic Indulgence package. The hotel itself was exceptional and staff were very polite and professional. Asked for the best room in the hotel and I personally don't think it was the best available, expectations were a bit higher but still had a lovely stay.

We couldn't fault this hotel. The staff we're exceptionally helpful and the rooms are large and luxurious and the hotel is ideally placed for touring Adelaide on foot, bus or tram. Would definitely recommend on every level.

Absolutely loved staying here! We booked one of the cheaper rooms without a view as that isn't important to us. Everything was wonderful from start to end. PROS: -very quiet, we faced an alley but views aren't important to us as we spend little time in the room -spacious, clean room with modern decor/furniture -comfortable bed -very friendly service; especially...

We loved our stay here. It's central; staff service is excellent; breakfasts are the best we've ever had, with a different variety of foods, freshly cooked, and having extra ingredients added to make them that bit different. We didn't want to leave! Taxi rank is across the road as well.
