what a great find! only stayed 1 night but we were very happy with the fantastic service. you can't beat the location, and it was very good value for money. The rooms are very clean, neat and tidy. Walked to the cinema and even walked to the city for some shopping. Highly recommended if you want to be close to everything and don't need all the "waste of money" bells and whistles that big hotel chains offer.

The staff at this hotel are wonderful. Kate welcomed us ion arrival. The next day she was there to chat when we were having breakie. Other staff members were just as dedicated. Rooms were big. Location is perfect in northern Adelaide. Great restaurants within walking distance.

Just a lovely venue. Comfortable beds and a spacious room with all the amenities. Close to the action, but still really quiet. Was more than just a nice place to stay. They went above and beyond to make my stay really enjoyable. Thoroughly recommend staying here.

Stayed here overe Christmas 2013. Nice accommodation. Kate was a perfect host. It is in North Adelaide, so a nice stroll around North Adelaide. Bus stop across the road. Close to the City. Would stay again.

Having stayed at this motel several times, we have always been happy with the friendly atmosphere and were pleased to see this hasn't changed with the new owners.
As usual, very welcoming of country people with a freshening up of the comfortable rooms.
Walking distance to restaurants, boutique shopping, and a stone's throw from the cinema this motel is an ideal place for our short Adelaide visits.

Room Tip: King size room a little more comfortable and spacious for only a little extra per night.

The O'Connell inn is now owned by the same folks that own the Prairie Hotel in Parachilna, which is an iconic country pub. My stay was characterised by that country 'warmth' and personal approach. There is some great Aboriginal art for sale in the lobby and restaurant area which support indigenous artists and they have changing exhibitions. Several of the rooms have been updated and I can only suppose any negative reviews on this site are from before this team took over. Really great location and atmosphere!
