The room is very comfortable and beautifully finished. The blinds automatically open and the tv turns on when you first step into the room which is pretty cool. The bed was very comfy and the rain head shower was also wonderful. Service was excellent! We enjoyed a small upgrade and a complimentary bottle of bubbles with a hand written note as it was our anniversary - a lovely touch. Floor to ceiling windows throughout the hotel make for a good view no matter where you are. The view of the oval from the bar/restaurant is quite nice while we enjoyed a drink or 2. We'll be back!

From our friendly welcome, complimentary drinks on arrival, very modern room with a fabulous view of the Cathedral,comfy bed, and breakfast overlooking an Adelaide Icon, we could not fault our stay. Completed the experience with a guided tour on Father's Day, which was well worth it!

I spent two nights here whilst on business in Adelaide. The Oval Hotel is part of the Adelaide Oval complex and is beautifully appointed. Check-in was friendly, helpful, and efficient. I had a studio room- very comfortable and perfectly set up. Super comfortable bed and the room was beautifully appointed. A corner room with floor-to-ceiling windows provided great views. Service was flawless. Great location and a short scenic walk into the CBD. Looking forward to a return visit.

Thank you Andrew for taking the time to share your experience at Oval Hotel. It is wonderful to hear of the experience from a business traveller's point of view, and to naturally that it was still accommodating to all your needs. The corner rooms, our Studio Rooms, are certainly magnificent with the dual windows and sweeping views. We are very lucky to have the parklands at our doorstep. We look forward to welcoming you back on a return visit. Mieke and the Oval Hotel team

The rooms here are fantastic. Service was excellent. Meals in Bestoke restaurant were excellent especially the breakfast. Car parking at $45 a day seems a bit extreme. Overall a lovely place to stay for a special occasion as on the expensive side.

Stayed at the hotel for 3 nights while at conference, which was held in the Adelaide Oval. Room was very comfortable, all facilities that were needed and some features that were not expected but welcome (a single touch screen for lights, air-con etc) Only down side - the fan in the bathroom would not shut down so ran all night. Spoke to the reception desk who said they would look into it. Reception staff were on point.

Dear Jason, Thank you for taking the time to share your stay here at Oval Hotel. It is greatly appreciated. We are delighted to hear from a guest who stayed as part of a conference at Adelaide Oval. We are so pleased to have this unique offering available and great to hear that you enjoyed it too. We have made some adjustments to the bathroom fan which we are confident has eliminated this disturbance. Hence thank you for raising this with us. We certainly hope to see you here again whether it is for business or perhaps as your choice for leisure. Warm regards, Mieke and the Oval Hotel team

So, this was a birthday celebration for my partner. The only way we could gain access to 'Five Regions' restaurant for dinner was to book the $699 Footy Experience (which came with a room for the night). That was OK. My partner had to work on the Sunday so we only made use of the room for the Saturday afternoon. To kick off the celebrations I ordered a Ploughman's Platter to be delivered to the room. Online it was advertised as $39, we ended up paying $42. That would have been OK, only the platter was quite woeful. There was a measly selection of a few meats (tasted quite old actually) and 4 x cubes of cheese no bigger than 1sqcm, all of which were dry.....I think they had been left out uncovered for quite some time. Very disappointing. Half way through the afternoon the TV in the room went bung so as a result we missed the afternoon footy. Overall not impressed with the room and the room service food. Separate review for Five Regions.

Dear John, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at Oval Hotel, naturally we too are disappointed that you left your stay feeling unimpressed. Usually we receive wonderful reviews on our game day experience, as seen in other reviews. I am unsure whether you reported the TV issue on the day, I myself was on that afternoon and don't recall notification on this. I would have expected that we certainly would have helped as best we could to resolve the issue and make you more comfortable. Like-wise whilst I don't expect the Ploughman's Platter to be disappointing, concerns can be raised to allow us an opportunity to rectify this and unsure that you are correctly charged. Your feedback though is greatly valued here and I will be sure to pass it onto the Executive Chef for his team to review. Naturally we would like to welcome you back here to Oval Hotel and show you an experience to remember for all the right reasons. Should this opportunity arise then please do feel free to contact me via mieke.sellers@ovalhotel.com.au. Thank you, Mieke and the Oval Hotel team We

This was our second stay at this lovely hotel. Our first on a game day. Crows v Blues - go Crows, great win. Was so easy for parking, accessing the oval etc. Wish we could stay every home game. 😊 Only thing would be a few more choices on the room service food menu. Will be back

Dear Colben02, Thank you for the 5 star rating. With this being our second season of AFL for the Hotel, we have concentrated on making the game day experience as seamless and memorable as possible. It is lovely reassurance that this is being experienced by our guests - a win certainly helps too! Thank you for the feedback in relation to the room service menu, I will be sure to raise this with the management team. Maybe we will see you for the showdown? Thank you, Mieke and the Oval Hotel team.

Such a great way to go to a game - arrive early, relax in the reception bar with a glass of wine and watch people arrive, walk straight to your seats from the hotel, then have a heavenly sleep in THE most comfortable bed. A memorable experience, and my team won! The rooms are small but really well furnished and were perfect for our stay.

Well appointed rooms with I-pad to control lighting, curtains, room service and everything else. Check in was a breeze although the lifts can be a little confusing. There is one for the stadium and one for the hotel. We chose to use the valet parking but I have to question the value of it. When we went to go our car dinner we were told by the attendant "that if I'm not here just leave the keys at reception." We were not told where to park the car upon or return. When we checked out, we were given our car key at reception and had to find our car. Well appointed rooms with I-pad to control lighting, curtains, room service and everything else. Room was very clean and bed was very comfortable. The blackout curtains worked a treat but there was lighting from the USB inputs and a red light on the ceiling that tended to light up the room a little. Breakfast was at Bespoke with a great view of Adelaide oval and the service was prompt and friendly. I have seen that other reviewers have noted not being offered their complimentary drink on arrival. We were not either, but a quick request to have them sorted that out. Great location, beautifully appointed will stay there again.

We had a luxury escape package that we used Mon- Wed in late May.. We had a studio king room in the South overlooking the river.. The beds were really comfy, perfectly positioned tv for sitting in bed watching the large variety of free in house movies.. Really good room service, quality of hte food was good as was service, Bespoke cafe for breakfast both days was fabulous.. Electronics in the room were good and worked well, great shower space and had good heat and pressure. Valet parking is could have better sign posting but that's minor.. Loved it.
