We visited the Tower hotel on a Wednesday evening in December, peak season it seems. The staff were friendly & helpful , having phoned to confirm our booking during the day, with our waitress attentive & bright. As it was so busy we were resigned to chatting with our guests for a while but was pleasantly surprised when all the... More

Thought we would give the newly revamped local a go but it sadly missed the spot. On a Tuesday night there were quite a few diners but it wasnt full and had to wait over an hour for food. They have a very limited menu and even then, certain items werent available. They disclose the fat and carb content on... More

I thought I'd eventually found a pub/hotel to call my local. Even though I waited an hour on Thursday for a burger, today I waited an hour only to be told they couldn't find my ticket and the kitchen was closed. No apology. Not a word other than here is you're money back. Disgusting. A shame because the renovation looks... More

Well the makeover is stunning! What an improvement from the tired old Tower Hotel. Having said that my experience on Thursday 1st December was memorable for all the wrong reasons. You can order food from anywhere in the Hotel it appears, which may or may not be a good thing. My mother and I have dined at the Tower on... More

My teenage kids & I dined here on a lovely Adelaide evening in the newly revamped & under new management Tower Hotel. When I booked I needed to choose one of several time slots, so opted for 7pm. We arrived right on time and were greeted by a cheery manager, who was a bit over the top in faux bonhomme... More

Pleasantly surprised by the food however the salad/ vegetable bar leaves much to be desired. Large meals.

This is a high turnover, nothing special cavernous pub and you expect that the pub food will be OK and the service running on rails but nothing special. The food was OK. The service was well below par and disorganised. We had to wait for 15 minutes in the queue to order lunch - not because the place was particularly... More

We were starving and found this very convenient. The chicken schnitzel, served with chips and pepper sauce declared good by my husband and my Perch, grilled with Herb butter and lovely flavored chips was a great meal and a good value special. The salad bar a bit spares, the green salad ok but the potato &coleslaw salad had too much... More

We found the area clean and tidy and staff friendly food was delicious and salad bar and a hot veggie bar a good atmosphere little bit slow in delivering the males

Reception very attentive, was checked in in no time at all. My room was compact but fine for a two night stay. It was furnished to a high standard and had everything that I needed. Breakfast was good although felt a tad cramped. Waitress service a little over keen, cleaning the table down before we'd actually got out of our... More
