Our accommodation was OK, nothing special There wash off street parking provided. The staff were friendly and address was convenient to our needs and nice restaurants, but the mattress needs replacing.

Great spot in North Adelaide. The room was older but clean and tidy. Bathroom was more updated. There is some undercover carparking available. Good place to stay for convenience. Overall, a pleasant stay.

Booked in Saturday night at 7.30pm, with reception hours closing at 8pm. We had a room away from the traffic so noise was not a problem.

Room was clean spacious - bathroom was very good. Bed was good, TV worked well. Nothing much ese to remark upon, I didn't even open the minibar so I don't know what was in it. Take care with arrival and departure times because reception is open only limited hours.

We stayed for the A League Grand Final weekend. It is located outside of the city and the family room was massive which included a spacious bathroom. The location was quiet and on a street with a large variety of restaurants, pubs and a cinema. The service was great. We were unsure of the time we would arrive because we...

I stayed here for a conference. I was honestly more comfortable than in some 5 star hotels. The room was spacious, the bed comfortable, the room spotlessly clean, the wifi good. I ate in the restaurant and the food and service were excellent. After work, I walked to Rundle Mall- not too long a stroll. Great value for money!

The O'Connell Inn is located in cosmopolitan North Adelaide amongst lively cafes, pubs and restaurants. This boutique property of 24 spacious guest suites was acquired by the Fargher family from the Prairie Hotel, Parachilna (Flinders Ranges). The hotel combines the ease of a city location with the warmth of country hospitality. Generous-sized, quiet rooms with private bathrooms, a central guest atrium and friendly staff make this a pleasant and peaceful city stay. An added bonus is off-street parking & WIFI at no additional cost. Guest facilities include a restaurant, bar and laundry. The light-filled, east facing restaurant and alfresco dining area is open each morning (excluding public holidays) serving espresso coffee, Tbar teas and full range of breakfast choices from the a la carte menu. The O'Connell Inn uses local free range eggs and are able to cater for gluten and dairy free dietary requirements. Bed and Breakfast packages are available for individuals and groups. The close proximity to the city, frequency of public transport into the city and access to free 'City Bikes' gives you the opportunity to leave the car behind and explore this beautiful city in a number of different ways. The city's premier sporting, entertainment & arts venues are all within 3km, including the Entertainment Centre (2.8Km), Festival Theatre (2.1Km), Art Gallery of SA and the Adelaide Cultural Precinct (2.6Km) on North Terrace.
