The interior of the hotel is very old and the sheets in the room was dirty when I arrived.

This is an old hotel probably dating from the early 80s. It is tired and needs completely renovating ..I The beds were hard and uncomfortable. The photos are misleading as it is scruffy.. The staff were nice and the hotel is well located near the city with a view of the park. It was a disappointment.

No free WIFI in the rooms, unusual for this era, bed too hard, room too close to main road, very noisy. Bathroom needs attention, little to no cold water in the shower. would have been good if staff had of informed us about the free public transport.

I stayed here and liked the quiet location on the edge of the Adeliade CBD. The free tram was easy walking distance and stopped near the Adeliade markets and Rundle Mall. Rooms were tired and dated but clean and bed was adequate for one person.

Everything needs an update, foyer furnishings, to rooms etc The pictures portray a more updated hotel, but overall it was still comfortable. Ideal for families as great playground across the road. Pool was great for older kids. 1m- 2m deep.

Would not recommend this hotel to anyone, housekeeping not up to scratch, can't get on site room service ( even a bucket of ice comes from a motel a few doors down) DONT GO IN THE LIFT ( it's scary and watch your step as it doesn't stop level )
