“Excellent service, good business hotel”
Reviewed 23 September 2008

I stayed here on 2 occasions for business. I found the service, friendliness and quality excellent both times. The position is excellent, a nice 15 min walk to the city and heaps of cafes restaurants and shops nearby. Onsite free parking for guests too. There's a great restaurant "The Snooty Fox" onsite with 5 star food at reasonable prices. The rooms are a little dated, but quite acceptable. There's plenty of TV channels and good pictures. The shower is excellent. For about $130 less than the City hotels this is great value. The staff are very helpful and nothing is too much trouble. This is my preferred hotel in Adelaide for position, quality, service and price..

I stayed at the property on the weekend with my husband had an excellent time. The staff were courteous and frindly at all times and our room was spotlessly clean and well appointed. O'Connell St location is fantastic to experience a little bit of Adelaide. We also dine in the Snooty Fox restaurant - fabulous food and great atmosphere, they also had a live pianist on the night - wonderful! I strongly recommend it.

Reviewed 8 June 2008

we enjoyed our stay at this charming hotel in north adelaide. it is on a main road but our room faced the back and so we were not bothered by any traffic noise.
the reception area, lovely breakfast room and the hotel room itself are reminiscent of a more relaxed and charming era. not a place for lovers of modern, edgy architecture. stay here if you enjoy cosiness, wood paneling and a touch of luxury. our room was quite spacious and the bathroom was very nicely done too.
the hotel is located close to many of the restaurants in north adelaide. the surrounding streets are worth a morning walk to admire the lovely architecture of the local residences.
we would stay there again when we next visit adelaide.

This hotel on O'Connell St provided the best service we've ever had from a hotel (including some pretty nice ones). The air conditioning in the room wasn't behaving, and while we were out having breakfast, they had an air-conditioning technician determine that the compressor was broken, move all our scattered belongings to a new room with a working air-conditioner, and then when we returned they offered us free breakfast for the inconvenience. Some of the bigger hotel chains could learn from that!
