The Atlantic Tower Motor Inn has been a Glenelg icon for at least as many years as I've been alive. Known largely for the revolving restaurant located at the top of the hotel, the shape of the hotel is also a bit of a novelty. On first impressions the hotel is tired and in need of some TLC to inject some life into it. Attention to the small gardens along the driveway/reception as well as the signage would be a good start. There is one lift servicing the hotel which contains photographs of the hotel rooms, restaurant etc...sadly these are also old and do little instil confidence in the heart of the first time visitor.
I was pleasantly surprised though when entering my room to find that the decor did not match the photographs. Efforts have been made here to bring the furnishings up to date. Complete with Mini bar (at affordable prices), the room had a balcony and amazing almost 180 degree views of the city. The bathroom is roomy enough and clean. My only comment here is that there are no blinds on the window allowing morning sun to stream in..not a problem if you're an early riser, so if you are, remember to close the bathroom door before going to bed.
Breakfast was included in the price of the hotel. While I am happy with a simple breakfast - cereal and toast are fine for me, the cereal was very basic and the bread also lacked imagination. A hot breakfast could be bought for an additional $10.
Overall, a comfortable hotel with no airs and graces. Great for the budget minded traveler looking for a 'base'.
