“Time for a Refurb”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

Hotel is quite adequate and comfortable and in a great location. However its definitely time for a refurbishment. Very old and tired décor. Not bad for noise. Not the usual plumbing noise you get at a lot of hotels.

We stayed at this hotel after buying the Cudo Voucher. The deal included delicious Choc dipped strawberries, and a bottle of red wine. We also had a buffet continental breakfast included. For an extra $5 each we could have the cooked breakfast, but the continental was plenty, and delicious. We booked the spa room which was upstairs, but it is only a short climb. The room was great. We had dinner in the Snooty Fox restaurant and the food was fantastic, but way too much. The recorded music left a lot to be desired! The staff were all very friendly and helpful as well. We will go back again.

My Husband and I stayed at this hotel for my Birthday after buying the Cudo Voucher. It was an excellent night. the deal included Choc dipped strawberries, YUM!!! and a bottle of red wine. But that's not all there was also a buffet breakfast continental style and an extra $5 each we could have the cooked breakfast. It was great value. The room we stayed in was perfect because I always want a couch to sit on. It had a balcony so my husband could have a cigarette too. A 25% off offer was in their Snooty Fox restaurant which we ate at dinner and it was the best food with live band playing jazz and classics like New York, New York. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. We found out the band is playing there on the first Saturday of the month so we will be aiming to go back again. Our night at The Old Adelaide Inn really was a wonderful night and I highly recommend this place. Sorry no pictures but the pictures on their website are exactly what it looks like and the Snooty Fox Restaurant is very elegant with a nice lounge area to have a drink in.

Room Tip: We had an upstairs room with a balcony but be mindful there is no lift, so if you have waking diffic...

This hotel is in a great location but the rooms really need a revamp and maintenance. Our room was dark and smelt musty, the taps dripped and the carpet and couch were VERY grubby.
Nice friendly staff

Room Tip: Ask for one away from kitchen and covered walkway...too dark and noisy.

We went to watch the AFL at Adelaide oval and it's a great location. 10 min walk to the stadium and in the middle of a very lively entertainment area, this was a great little find. Would definitely come back next time.

We had my parents 50th Wedding Anniversary in one of the Function Rooms. The room was set up beautifully, the staff were very friendly and went out of their way to make sure the evening ran smoothly. The food was nice and served i a timely manner. All the guests enjoyed the ambiance and there were many comments on the friendly staff.
We stayed overnight and our room was well appointed and comfortable. The breakfast buffet is amazing.
Definately recommend for your Special Function
