Happy Customers

Stayed here for four nights over long weekend for Masters Games. Excellent in every way. Very very clean. Breakfast was great and very filling. Location is superb right at the main intersection in Glenelg. Tram is literally 50 meters from the room. Plenty of parking. Choices for eating out incredible. Will certainly be staying here again.

Peter J

Excellent location, room was also excellent. Very clean and well presented. On site secure car parking. Staff we're very helpful, we were running late, so they gave us a call to see how we we're going, and what time we would arrive. Definitely on the return list.

Nichole B

Excellent service from arrival to departure, being taken to our room was a special touch. Breakfast was perfect too, will definitely be back.

Jenny Edmonds

This is our second stay here. When in Adelaide we don’t look anywhere else. This place is quality. Close to eateries, tram into town. The staff goes that extra mile. Nice and cosy. Off-street parking. And it’s free.

Ian H

Friendly customer service. Clean tidy rooms hosts were brilliant service right to room door recommend staying here to anyone absolute 5 star rating.

Lorraine Bingham

Looks a little dated on the outside however never judge a book by it's cover. The location is just very central to the heart of Glenelg. The rooms have been recently tastefully remodeled, staff are very friendly and helpful. I got a nice surprise this morning to find my windshield was cleaned by the staff. That is a very thoughtful touch of service that was unexpected but much appreciated. Keep it up guys!
