“Hidden beauty in Glenelg”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

The Marina is a gem, still simple but a classy accommodation very near the beach, the hub of Glenelg. All local restaurants are accessible on foot, you can leave your car at the hotel.
The rooms are big, very well kept, the service is very friendly in the restaurant, the front desk and the room service is perfect. A small swimming pool available. And parking is off the street behind the hotel.
Well priced.

Room Tip: Upstairs and facing the river, you can see the sea also

Checked in for 1night 12/5/14
Before arriving checked and had a look on one of the booking sites. They said that there were 2 rooms available here for $98 which included breakfast but hotel itself said no rooms but checked site and gave us one but not including breakfast. We stayed anyway especially after a 600km drive.
The room they gave us was a marina view room 112 the carpets had just been cleaned and still damp. Three beds in the room, double and a single. Room fairly basic but clean. A set of cupboards enclosed a small fridge, kettle, cutlery and coffees etc but no toaster with a tv on top and a writing desk 1chair. The wardrobe had extra blankets and pillows, hairdryer, iron and board.
Bathroom again clean and basic. The usual toiletries.
Would probably not stay here again if in Glenelg but it was comfortable stay for the one night.

Thank you for leaving your feedback.

I’m very surprised to hear you found our property on a booking website for AU$98 (inclusive of breakfast) I myself provide all our rates/packages to our third party booking sites and haven’t made a rate like this available, so it’s a little concerning that they might be advertising without our permission. If you can provide me with more details I can look into it further.

Other than that I’m pleased you enjoyed your stay with us.

My husband and I stayed 2 nights. Great value motel, was clean and comfortable and in a great location. All the staff where very friendly and welcoming. Would recommend if you want to be in walking distance to restaurants, pubs and cafés, plus the marina is only across the road, great views if you get a front facing room. The in house restaurant also do a great breakfast.

We spent one night as our last port of call on a 2 week VIC/SA holiday. Fantastic location being walking distance to the delights of Glenelg, great onsite restaurant although not cheap, good honest clean and large motel style rooms - don't book if you expect 5 star - it continues to amaze me that people pay $120 for a nights accommodation and expect it to be of international hotel quality! You get more than what you pay for here as we paid far more at some places and were disappointed. Dated but spotless bathroom and good amenities provided. This is great value and has friendly staff to boot. If you want a sleep in there is some noise from cars leaving in the morning so ask for an upstairs room .....

Room Tip: upstairs rooms would be quieter than those right on the car park

Very good friendly hotel. We were able to change to a family room without any fuss. Would recommed. The beach is only a 5 minute walk. The town is about 8 minute walk. The restraurant is slighly exspensive.

Stayed here 8 nights with my wife, two young kids and our dog. Yes, a dog in a hotel pretty close to the epicentre of Glenelg. Just what we needed. Friendly welcome at reception. Ground floor room with 2 bedrooms, small kitchenette, bathroom and hall as well as a small outdoors area. Perfect for our needs. Plenty of parking, some undercover. Rooms clean, nothing flashy but that's not what we were after anyway. Convenient to have microwave, fridge, toaster and kettle with coffee/tea. We signed up for the VIP club which gives you 10% off all food and drink. Made good use of this with 3 breakfasts and one dinner during our stay plus more than a few drinks out on the terrace overlooking the marina. Food wasn't bad - brekkie buffet was average but kids loved it and very convenient. Our evening meal there was really pretty good and we were impressed. The hotel has a fantastic location - just across the road from the marina with a big expanse of green park, exercise area, kids play area and then minutes to Glenelg beach, a huge selection of cafes and restaurants both in and around Jetty Rd as well as the upmarket options lining the marina. Room was very quiet at night and we slept well. Overall we loved our stay here, so good to be able to have our beloved mutt with us and we will be returning again no doubt. Very pleased to have found this hotel.

stayed 2 nights. on the morning of departure, no hot water = no shower (8am). tv remote wouldn't work. staff couldn't get it to operate so suggested the following remedies (1) move to another room (at 9pm) or (2) don't watch tv and accept $5 discount off a $19 breakfast. no mention of getting a remote from another room !!
be sure not to be allocated a front room (on adelphi terrace) unless you are a bathurst enthusiast. the early morning vehicle noise will drive you bonkers. interestingly, when checking in staff advised me I had been upgraded, which seemed to be a great start to my stay. now hate to think what the lower grade room would have been like.
rooms just make the grade, plenty of parking on-site and the restaurant/bar was a pleasant surprise.
all in all pretty average, then again the price was reasonable, so if you're not paying hilton prices then you can expect hilton comfort.

Room Tip: keep away from the rooms fronting adelphi terrace
