We were welcomed by the friendly receptionist and directed to our room. The reception and guest areas looked quite reasonable, except for the dirty lift carpets. We found our room to be a decent size and the bathroom was OK, but then we noticed the windows and the shutters/blinds. The windows were filthy dirty and the blinds covered in dust. Not that there was much to see from the window as the view was of the neighbouring building, but the grubbiness of the window was a disappointing indication of the lack of thoroughness in the maintenance of the room.
Comfort was fine but breakfast was a dismal continental offering with limited choice of budget items and weak coffee or tea. It would be better if they knocked a couple of dollars off the room rate, made the hotel room only and let guests find a decent breakfast at one of the many good coffee shops in Adelaide.
Location was fair. There were some acceptable restaurants within a 15-20 minute walking distance, but the main part of the city was quite a hike.
If I visit Adelaide again I will find somewhere better that is more central.
