Stayed here for one night in November and scored a room right on Moseley Street. This would have annoyed my wife, but I was on my own on this occasion and wasn't bothered by the traffic. The room was clean and tidy and adequate for the night. Nice clean sheets and towels along with the usual bathroom accessories. Just a...

We needed a two bedroom place, preferably near Glenelg, for three nights in February. After searching TA and several other sites we came up empty handed. A travel agent/friend recommended the Taft and we got lucky. The staff (Cathy in particular) were extremely helpful and friendly. The building and facilities are a little dated, but everything worked well and the...

Looked fine from the outside good parking too, just off main street in Glenelg so good for beach and restaurants BUT when we entered the room, spacious, one of the net curtains was ripped in several places, the shower had a curtain which with an open window ( which we couldn't shut) was annoying. The airco didn't work .. there...

My husband, 18 month old son and I have stayed at The Taft a number of times and this time I have to admit we were a bit disappointed with the cleanliness of our unit. The floor was disgusting, very dirty which was evident in both feel and look. This made the soles of our feet black (no exaggeration) and...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a week over new years.. and were very happy with our stay. The location is in a quiet street only a few blocks from the main strip and beach of glenelg. Such fantastic value for money! We got amazing service from both front desk and housekeeping and the room itself was fantastic. The...

This is a great motel. Spacious comfortable rooms and very friendly management. Would recommend this for families as the location is excellent. The only downside is that the air conditioners need upgrading to split systems. Ours was held together outside by duct tape. I'm sure that this is under control. We will definitely be back to this gem.

This motel is convenient with friendly service and a reasonable price. Unfortunately it is very dated and some items needed replacing or fixing (the bathroom door only closed with difficulty). The sheets were extremely stiff and uncomfortable. Guests also get noise from the apartments opposite. A great place if updated.

Stayed at this motel for three nights while visiting Adelaide last May. A warm and informative welcome, the parking spaces are tight, Room was on the first floor, so you have to be fit to do the stairs with lugguge. Older style building, room was reasonably spacious, however did not have a sink, which some units have as per the...

We stayed one night. Great location if hiring vehicle at airport. & wanting to head off to hills or elsewhere without going into the city. Older accommodation but very clean and friendly staff. if you wanted to stay a few days cooking facilities are available. Close to beach & lovely restaurants. Nice quiet street.
