The staff were friendly and even helped us carry our heavy luggage upstairs. The location is great. The apartment was a bit different. The kitchen and bathrooms seemed updated but the carpeting was badly done... just stretched over a obvious height difference in the floor from bedroom to living room and very easy to trip over. The bedrooms were great...

Coming from a place no where near any ocean this was a real treat. Staff was great -checked in early and out late- and did a ton on laundry onsite, were able to park there too. Great beach and walking path literally steps from the door. A five minute walk to the jetty. Seawall is also part of the Mansions...

Dear TipsFrmMN We are so lucky to be situated right on the beach front, and we love sharing our little slice of paradise with others who don't see the beach as often! All of our apartments are modernly refurbished, so you can cook up a storm in the kitchen, and still have the fantastic high ceilings of a heritage building!...

Glenelg was a real holiday 'find' for our family, but Seawall Apartments made our stay there all the more enjoyable. We rented the Fisherman's Cottage, which was comfortable, clean, private and...perfect! We loved being on the beach and close to Moseley Square with its cafes and lively day-and-night buzz, the museum, Jetty Road shops and convenient tram stop for rides...

Dear David I, Glenelg is certainly a lovely spot for a family holiday, and I'm glad your apartment, the Fishermans Cottage, was perfect for you! The resident cat, Dolphinfish, often makes friends with any cat loving guests! We look forward to hopefully seeing you back at Seawall next time!

Stayed for an anniversary weekend earlier in the year - Close to all the local Glenelg amenities. Rooms are specious and well equipped. Stayed in the Spa room which was a real treat. Great to watch the world pass by from the secluded balcony.

Seawall is always awesome - our 10th plus stay. The location right on the esplanade with just a footpath and a little grass to negotiate to the clean wide white sand :-) Lots of character and so comforatable. I'd rather spend a little more at Seawall and save on airfares and travel time - Unley Adelaide Family

Lovely stay. We choose Seawall for our weekend breaks to Adelaide. Always friendly and helpful, Dolphin the cat always visits. Clean, very convenient perfect place for us. We are able to walk to the square and catch a tram to Adelaide or go out for tea, walk along the esplanade. Always a hive of activity yet peaceful.

Dear sharlandd, Thank you for your lovely review, we're so glad you enjoy our convenient location! Being just 500 metres from Jetty Rd, we're an easy walk to the action, but far enough away to have a peaceful atmosphere. The resident cat, Dolphinfish, recognises a friendly face when she sees one!

Reviewed 17 December 2016 via mobile

This place was recommended by two friends for all the right reasons, friendly flexible well situated for a family with a toddler. The staff were so accommodating and kindly upgraded our rooms, making the stay so pleasurable we didn't want to leave. Highly recommended by us now!

Very suitable for our needs- not your ultra modern high rise but an old house divided up into spacious apartments. The room interior was set up superbly- modern and clean- great beds, towels, good kitchen facilities- free laundry and parking.

WE loved our stay at Seawall apartments. We had an ocean view room so the views were amazing and yet very affordable. What we particularly liked was the internal décor, the paintings, mirrors and decorations so suited to the actual building. The location was superb, only 5 min walk to the tram stop.
