“Very Good Location”
Reviewed 5 September 2010

This is a hotel in a traditional Austrilian building at the end of the main shopping street.
This is not state of the art hotel but it is in the centre, large airy rooms with high ceilings. It was noisey at night but to be this is to be expected if you are in centre of a city.

We booked this hotel because we wanted cheap accommodations in the Adelaide central business district. The location is ideal, with many shops and restaurants within walking distance. Very enjoyable. The hotel itself is a converted vintage office building, which leads to some interesting architectural features and sleeping room floor plans (not all bad, just curious). We visited in winter, and the air-leaking windows were a problem for both temperature control as well as noise penetration (heavy sleepers will do better here), but the room was comfortable. The rooms were clean but very spartan without extra attention spent on decor, but there was a mini-bar, complimentary tea/coffee, and the usual basic toiletries (soap, shampoo) and hairdryers provided in the bathrooms. The front desk is open limited hours, but the Miller Apartments right across the street cover for the Parenga 24/7 and so this was not a major problem (just curious, again). Hotel staff were very pleasant and eager to please. I'm saying that I would not recommend the hotel only because it was too spartan and a bit run-down for my taste; otherwise, it would be acceptable to stay here again.

Dear Divine Miss Maja

Thank you for taking the time to provide objective feedback on your recent stay at Adelaide Paringa. We greatly appreciate feedback, both positive and negative, it helps us to improve our business.
You mentioned on several occassions that you felt the room furnishings to be a little spartan, I note your point but would suggest that the room furnishings are superior to any other central city property in this price range. We have just completed putting new top quality beds in all rooms and we provide flat screen televisions and complimentary magazines to name just a few.
We are currently introducing some other options and hope to be at the stage of being able to offer lounge furniture to compliment the tables and chairs already provided.
Again thank you for taking the time to comment, and we would truly like to welcome you back to Paringa in the future.

This central hotel is in the thick of Adelaide nightlife, so prepare yourself for the sounds of happy people, drunk people and police sirens! Take earplugs and you will have a great night sleep. We stayed Saturday night, so Adelaide was buzzing.

Our 'Deluxe Queen Room' booking stated that there was 'fresh milk and plunger coffee'. No sign of that. No sign of a valance/ruffle on the bed either! The bathroom was basic and about as boutique as my grandmother. This 'boutique hotel' was far from the mark. Just a cheap city hotel with a facelift. But good value after a day of wine touring.

Dinner down the road at Woolshed Pub was a highlight. Best chips we have had in a while! But dreadful house wines! Parking was $12 a night subsidised by the hotel for the Wilson Parking building over the road.
Luckily we had two sets of earplugs, or this review would be very different. But just for a night we were satisfied.

Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback, we are always appreciate constructive comments. Let me apologize for the milk and coffeee plunger issue with the booking you made these should most definately have been in your room and I will certainly look into this.

Paringa is a very good value for money 3.5 star motel that also offers some additions you would not normally expect in a property of this style or price, brand new beds throughout, flat screen Televisions up market toiletries and comp magazines in the rooms just to name a few.

Inner city hotels will always be subject to a higher external ambient noise level especially when located close to an entertainment precinct, I congratulate you on your ides to travel with ear plugs.

This quaint hotel is within easy reach of Adelaide's main street, the tram and most of Adelaide's attractions that are on North Terrace. The building used to be an old office block and radio station and it was converted into a hotel. It is old but comfortable. Hindley Street is a busy street for nightlife so expect to hear heaps of noise from the revelers on a Friday and Saturday night but you are in the heart of town. There are plenty of places to eat at and the Casino has a great seafood buffet on Friday & Saturday nights.

When my husband booked me into a hotel on party central (aka Hindley Street) I did wonder if he thought I wasn't getting out enough...and whether I would get any sleep. Luckily I was there during the week, leaving on the Friday so this review could have been different. There is quite a noisy pub next door which wasn't too bad during the week if you're not a light sleeper. We got a good deal on the hotel at £50 GBP a night just after it had been refurbished. My room overlooked the alleyway opposite the pub so not much natural light, I can imagine that the hotel was pretty grim before the recent refurb. There was a bedroom with a separate area with wardrobe & small table and a shower. The room was decorated in neutral colours, it was clean and quite spacious. The staff were very helpful and pleasant. There were the usual high internet charges in AU hotels (guess its the same most places) but there is an internet cafe out front with free wifi/internet if you are eating there. The location was great for getting around ( not that Adelaide is large) and I would stay there again if I could get the £50 a night rate, as it was great value.

Stayed for six nights, Great room, plenty of space, loved the spa, close to everything. Staff here and at sister establishment very helpful, good secure parking. Travelled with an eight year old and had no difficulties. Aircon can be a little noisy but its also very cold outside. Overall thoroughly enjoyed the stay, was great and would do it again

Room was very neat, well carpeted with very clean furnishings, too spacious for one person, would be very comfortable for a small family. Lot of space inside the room to move around. Room has all basic amenties to spend a quality time when you are in it. Excellent prompt service with freindly staff. Very well located in the upmarket place with all sorts of shops (departmental stores to restaurants and pubs) nearby. Food was not available at the hotel, but once you step out you have food corners where you can have a good breakfast at anytime. If you want indian food, few good restaurants are nearby within walking distance. Best I liked was the location with people moving around till midnight giving you a feel of existence. Least I liked - they do not serve food, which you sometimes may need in case you don't feel like stepping out.
