This is a beautiful classic hotel with terrific personnel and a fantastic decor. The architecture is untouched but still looking brand new. I loved our stay here, came back here after our short stay in Kangaroo Island. If I ever go back to Adelaide, this is the hotel I'll be staying at. It has all the amenities needed, and if...

This is my second visit to this hotel, the previous being solo several years ago. The place is just I remembered it. Beautiful lobby and entrance, with warm and friendly staff at all corners. The room (NY style loft) was magnificent, exactly as described, spacious, clean, elegant and simply stunning. The location is right across the road from the casino...

We used our free night to stay for our Wedding Anniversary in Adelaide, our home City. Apparently hotel provided us with an upgraded room but this was not apparent. Shower over the bath, furniture and décor show hotel is old and out dated for a 5Star Hotel. Bed was comfortable and we had a reasonable stay. Swimming pool, gym, sauna...

Excellent hotel. All the staff were delightful and most helpful; best we've encountered for many years. Facilities and food equally as good. Would definitely stay again and would recommend to our friends as the place to stay.

We only stayed one night before catching the train to Darwin. Staff were generally friendly and helpful, even when under pressure because of a wedding and a lot of 'party people'. The room was comfortable, with enough space for us to reorganise our luggage for the next part of our trip - very important to us at the time. We...

Stayed here for 2 nights with several friends to celebrate my birthday. The staff had been very helpful to respond to my emails promptly as well as providing excellent Customer Service prior to our arrival. They immediately helped us with our luggage once we arrived and deliver it to our room. The Receptions explained everything clearly to us as well...

The Loft suite was amazing! It was a great sized room and felt very spacious. The highlight was the buffet breakfast in the morning. The best selection of hot and cold food, along with fresh fruit and freshly squeezed juices.

We enjoyed an overnight stay thanks to cashing in some Flybuys points! Staff were very friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean and comfortable and the hotel is central to everything! We were able to visit the Railway Station (to meet family members) the SA museum, Rundle Mall, and Adelaide Oval for a cricket match, all within walking distance. We...
