This hotel (discovered it is in fact a motel) was booked by our travel agent for us and we therefore had little idea of what to expect..........but despite it's good central location and being in an old Heritage building, little else positive can really be said. The rooms were clean but quite dated and shabby. Lots of dark brown gloss paint everywhere! Our wardrobe had lost its door at some point and never been replaced. We had a pane of glass sitting on the floor under the window and not sure why. The TV reception in the room was poor. The radio never worked. We were kept awake most of the night by noise from within the building and also from the pub across the alley. There is no dining facilities, but there is a good cafe on the corner for breakfasts. The reception desk is only manned part of the day and at other times you go across the road to another property with any problems or to check out. Unfortunately our toilet flush failed on the second day and the following morning I spoke with the reception to report it, but later in the day the receptonist was still unable to resolve the problem as no plumber was available being Easter and as the establishment was fully booked there was no other room with a functioning loo that we could use. We were given a bucket from housekeeping to fill with water from the shower and throw down the tiolet as a flush. I really did not feel this was acceptable but had limited options as it was Easter Sunday. I feel this establishment is really more suitable for backpackers or those on a very restricted budget and only need a bed for the night. Adelaide was lovely and I am aware now of several very good hotels to chose from on our next stay...............I will not return to the Paringa.
