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.

Excellent service great location close to the beach, shops, pubs, and public transport. The motel is very clean good size room and bed. Staff are more than willing to help.

Bill Corcoran

Friendly staff very welcoming, happy to accommodate us without a booking . Upgraded us at no charge, huge studio apartment, maybe not as modern as others but very comfortable with everything you need. Close to everything and good value . Well worth the stay thank you :)

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.

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!
