The Intercontinental Hotel Adelaide is situated right in the centre of town next to the main railway station and very close to the river. Not a very inspiring hotel, quite dull when you enter due to the black marble floors, brown walls and gold banisters together with poor lighting. The reception area is open plan in that you can look up from the centre of the lobby and see the floors of the hotel which form a circle above you. The staff are friendly and efficient and make up for the shortfalls else where.
The rooms are clean and bright, good comfortable beds and well appointed, but again like the rest of the hotel uninspiring and nothing to get excited about. Its a tight squeeze between the bathroom and the main room with not a great deal of wardrobe space so if its two of you its cases on the floor for one of you...
The usual applies here, expensive internet, mini bar and room service. You are in the center of town so finding something to eat and good internet is very easy. The tram stops right outside the hotel that will take you to Glenelg which is well worth a visit especially for the sunset.
Breakfast was well stocked and varied. Again the staff were friendly and helpful and left you alone to get on with it.
As a business hotel or a quick stop over its ok but for a holiday I’d probably look around for alternatives. When I was there the pool was out of commission for 9 mouths which in the summer is odd and inconvenient to say the least. Marks out of 10...? 6. Sorry.
