Really enjoyed my stay at the Arkaba Hotel was great to have such a luxurious room at such an affordable price. The staff were all fantastic and the food and beverage options throughout the venue are great. Will definitely be back

Very good hotel on the edge of Adelaide. Only a few minutes into Adelaide and is opposite worlds best supermarket (2016) so pretty good. Meals were very good and the accommodation was very good. Parking is free and staff very courteous. Ask for a free drink voucher on checking in, never know your luck.

My wife and I treated ourselves to the "Luxury Indulgence Package" this Saturday night. We had a wonderful time. There was an issue with the advertised bottle of wine in the room but reception immediately rectified this for a bottle shop voucher. Unfortunately we were given the wrong voucher at first but this was quickly replaced with the right one... More

Stay here regularly for work reasons. Professional and honest staff especially Alex on the desk. After my last stay they went out of their way to reunite me with an engagement ring I had lost in my room.

Stayed overnight - was impressed with the friendliness of the staff. We enquired if we could have an early checkin at midday as we had a wedding at 2 and wanted to get ready at the hotel if possible.

We stayed here for work for one night and had dinner there. The room we stayed in was amazing. The bed would have to be one of the most comfortable we've ever slept in here in Australia & overseas.

Room was beautiful and clean. Unfortunately window would not close completely and heater failed to work- ergo the room was extremely cold. Meals in the bistro were lovely, although a little pricey. "Top of the Ark" held a great atmosphere. Although most of the staff were pleasant to deal with there was a slight unpleasant attitude stemming from a few... More

I stayed three nights on business in a ground floor room. The room had a shower, no bath, but was comfortable enough. The hotel is very conveniently sited with a shopping centre next door, a nice little cafe across the street if you don't want a hotel breakfast and it's pretty close to the city centre. There are some nice... More

The rooms are ok but we didn't have a refurbished one. Our room had 2 double beds, both comfy but 1 squeaked. The staff are nice. But the smell from sealing the floor above the bar was so bad that we had to go somewhere else for dinner. The free wifi was a nice bonus and the location was good
