Chifley on South Terrace
Ranked #37 of 56 Hotels in Adelaide
Reviewed 18 April 2014 via mobile

We stayed two nights. Location is walkable to town but not really central. There are no obvious convenience stores about for example. Rooms spacious, a little tired and featureless, like a motel. Carpet smelled dusty, but you can open windows into verandah for air. Had a view though the city is flat and it doesn't inspire. Parking was a nuisance as it's also for restaurants and other premises so it's pot luck. We often found large black or white suvs taking two spots. They need to enforce proper parking.

Stayed: April 2014, travelled with friends

Hi jay_pleski
I am pleased you enjoyed your stay and thanks for writing a review. We apologise for any inconvenience you may have experienced with parking. We are currently reviewing the free parking and will be issuing tickets to house guests in the near future. This will still allow guests to park free whilst they are staying with us, however others will pay or park elsewhere (freeing up further spaces for our valued guests). There are several convenience stores for guests within a short stroll of the hotel and our friendly reception staff are happy to point people in the right direction when asked.
We look forward to welcoming you back on your next visit.
Kind Regards
Damian Gillings

Hotel is on a busy street on the fringe of the CBD. Reception were fine checking in. I had booked a deluxe room but not sure I received it as it was small. While it was on the park side as requested it was near the stairs/lifts and the housekeeping room so was noisy.

Access to other parts of the CBD are good with the free tram and the market only about 10 mins away. Surrounding area at night not great but quite nice during the day. The newly opened Hanuman restaurant is wonderful, full of flavour.

Overall good value for money if you do not want to be on or near North Terrace.

Room Tip: Room on higher floor away from lift and stairs and the housekeeping room. Not sure what room were li...

Please do not hesitate to contact me personally at the hotel, Mon - Fri from 7.30am - 4pm so I can gather the necessary details.
I look forward to hearing from you soon

My wife and I stayed one night on the 9th of april . On checking in with the friendly staff we were advised that we had been upgraded to a king room suite. This consisted of a large king size room and an adjoining lounge room. Both rooms had flat screen tv's ,, he bathroom was spotless and the bed was very comfortable but a little low. The only downside was the lift which was next to our lounge room and although we were conscious of its operation it did not overly concern us as it did not operate after 11.00 pm. We ate in the newly refurbished restaurant at night and enjoyed a marvellous Indian meal.. We will stay there again.

Dear Beejay7Adelaide
Thanks for your review, I am pleased you enjoyed your stay.
As you have noted we do limit the hours of operation of the lift and we apologise for any inconvenience from the noise during its operation.
Hanuman Restaurant is truly delightful and is quickly establishing itself as one of Adelaide's premium Indian & Thai restaurants - we are truly delighted that they have chosen our hotel for their business (mind you, my waistline is not quite what it was before they set up!)
We look forward to welcoming you back when next you stay.

The Chifley on South has definitely seen better days. The rooms are clean but tired. Noise carries a lot (my neighbour had the TV on all night... delightful people).
The location is upmarket and very convenient, so this is a very good budget choice compared to other hotels in the immediate area (including the much more upmarket Grand Chifley a short walk down the road). Stay only if budget is the main driver.

The restaurant ("Hanuman") on the other hand serves a choice of Thai and Indian dishes that are OUTSTANDING. The chef is talented and imaginative. The starters were flawless. Bizarre! These guys should look for a better venue! Almost made up for the hotel's down side...!

Room Tip: Ask for budget deals. Ask for a quiet room.

Hello DATbh
Thanks for reviewing your stay. We are sorry and apologise you were disturbed by your neighbours television noise. I have asked maintenance and housekeeping to check the televisions throughout the property to ensure the 'hotel lock' has been selected and programmed which limits the upper volume level. We will also remind our night staff to be vigilant and act in regard to any noisy rooms when conducting their regular floor checks.
We are indeed fortunate to have Hanuman Restaurant located in our premises. Having personally eaten there several times, I am of the belief they will establish themselves among the most sought after restaurants in Adelaide.
Thanks again for your review and we look forward to welcoming you back when next you stay.
Kind Regards

We stayed here for three nights with a coach group. Dinner was at the Grand Chifley 3 doors down, and very nice with efficient and pleasant, friendly staff, 5 star service. The front staff at the Chifley on South were friendly and efficient. Breakfast was int eh Hotel each morning and well presented and good selection of Buffet. Recommend this hotel to everyone.

Room Tip: We were on the First floor and view is not the best, but excellent on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th Floors.

The carpets are worn in places and some tiles in the bathroom need replacing. But the family rooms are quite spacious; the bathrooms clean; the beds comfortable and the bedlinen and towels good. Staff were very pleasant and check in/out efficient.
The elevator stops working at 11.30pm so be prepared to walk up the stairs if you are later than that.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the very noisy elevator. Ask for a room on the lower floors if you have d...

Hi 173mercat
Thanks for reviewing your stay. I am sorry we were unable to fulfil your request on this occasion. I have asked the Front Office Manager to remind his team that ALL requests should be noted in our guest's profile's for future reference. This will then assist us to allocate rooms earlier with specific preferences known at the time the booking is made.
I look forward to welcoming you back and do hope you will stay with us again.
