Had the misfortune to stay here during “mad march” when accom is at a premium. This would not be a willing choice. Check in and lady at reception , very good and helpful.
Rooms and hallways are old and tired. Like something from the 1970’s
Tram track construction during the night and early morning new build construction behind the Apartment created an inability to sleep.
Not sure where the rooms advertised are but I certainly did not get one for my 3 night stay. Compare my photos to those on the website
Stay if you have no other option

I was able to secure a great nightly rate for a studio apartment at the Mansions recently during the Fringe Festival.
The location can be not be beaten as Rundle Mall is just around the corner and there are heaps of restaurants and coffee stops within walking distance.
I liked the after-hours security and the reception staff were always polite and helpful (thank you, Julian!).

Unfortunately, there are more negatives than positives when staying at the Mansions. The carpets in the hallways are threadbare in places and badly rippled and wrinkled.
The studio apartment is huge but badly designed with a lot of wasted space.
The bathroom is old with 1980 style floor tiles and such poor lighting that it was impossible to apply my makeup in there. In fact, the lighting throughout is poor and a table lamp would have been nice.
There is only one television and it faced the sofa. From the chips on top of the nib wall it was obvious previous guests had turned the TV around to face the bed and perched it on top of the wall. All good unless you accidentally knock the TV off!

The bed wasn't too bad but the pillows were very uncomfortable. The air conditioning unit is under the window next to the bed and you need to adjust the vents if you don't want it blowing on you all night.
The balcony is laughable - you step up out of the room onto a tiny balcony with a rusty chair and look onto a building site which you know is there because you hear the workers starting early each morning!

Wi-fi is available to guests but it drops out constantly & I had to keep logging back in which was annoying. The service took a long time to connect and I had to laugh as the Richmond Hotel wi-fi round in the Mall was always an available network - if only you could log in! Management needs to look at changing their service provider.

The Mansions badly needs a refurbishment. I would be reluctant to stay here again despite the excellent location.

We booked for 6 days to attend the Writers Week and the Fringe festival. The location is excellent. The price was high.

The first apartment was roomy, but had a tiny bathroom. Inspection quickly revealed a water-damaged bathroom cupboard, wood rot, filthy surfaces throughout, marks on most walks, unrepaired minor damage throughout and a room that suggested no maintenance for many years. It seemed out of the 1960s. Towels, toilet paper, tissues and utensils are of the lowest grade.

In addition, a multi-storey building is being built next door so construction begins at 7am every morning. This will continue for many months. As well, the common halls have threadbare, wrinkled carpets and appear like a student hostel.

Our complaint led to excuses (these rooms are privately-owned), a 5% discount offer, or a new room. We - unwisely - took
the new room. On closer inspection, it had its own set of different defects, but we stayed, because we didn't want to spoilour holiday further and we spent little time in the room. The room was not cleaned Sunday 'to allow us to rest peacefully' and was not cleaned on another day when we returned at 3.30pm. No apologies given.

The building looks like it will be knocked down shortly from the lack of maintenance.

We strongly recommend you avoid it and seek any other alternative accommodation, as these issues cannot be fixed in the short term.

We stayed at mansions@laloft in Pulteney Street for three nights over Australia day long weekend 2018. We booked through a multiple hotel online booking site rather than directly with the hotel. Online it said we had a balcony. Upon arrival we discovered we had no balcony. Julian and Richard at Mansions@laloft were lovely and immediately upgraded us to a studio apartment with balcony. Richard declined our offer to pay for the difference in costs.

Mansions@laloft is perfectly positioned on Pulteney street, close to Rundle Mall for shopping, Rundle street for dining, walkable to Adelaide oval, the casino and the river.
We had a wonderful time in Adelaide and thanks to Richard and Julian for the wonderful service.
Tip:book directly with Mansions@laloft to get cheaper rates and the room type you need
Thanks again Jeanette
