Great quality and value. The rooms were excellent- spacious and well detailed and very comfortable. Bar and dining area really nice. We started our evening at the bar and ended up eating there as well. Again, service quality great. Staff pleasant and helpful.

This hotel is rated number one in Adelaide, justifiably so. The room was comfortable, with good amenities, and wonderful service. The hotel itself is an older hotelbut has been kept up well. The lobby and restaurant have an Art Deco look that borders on opulent. The staff were very welcoming and did everything they could to make our trip wonderful....

All the important things - just perfect. The rooms: most comfortable hotel bed in a long while, plenty of hanging space, roomy and comfy BUT only instant coffee in the minibar and we had a view of a carpark. The Lounge bar: the decor, comfort, cocktails and free wifi. The restaurant: fantastic food and service (especially our waiter Thomas), The...

I stayed here for a week in June 2015. The room was nicely furnished and roomy. The chest of drawers was very handy. All staff were friendly, very helpful and efficient. The hotel has a very comfortable, elegant and family feel about it. The decor is art nouveau and so the bar, lounge and restaurant areas are very attractive and...
