“Value and views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 November 2013

We have just stayed two separate nights at Atlantic Tower, our first and last night of a 10 day trip to SA. We prefer Glenelg to the city as it is easy to get to the airport, has the beach and to the marina and a relaxed atmosphere. Atlantic Tower offers great views of the Marina and ocean and good value for money with free parking (or $10 for a secure park), and continental breakfast included (or $10 for cooked breakfast). Julie in the breakfast room was very helpful with street directions and the receptionists were helpful and friendly as well. We will definitely return.

Room Tip: Rooms with lower numbers e.g. 111, 112, 113 look out over the marina which is the best view on offer...

Stayed here four nights over a weekend. Booked a tower room on the 10th floor. Room was comfortable with a good sized bathroom, good quality bed and a view to the west over the ocean and part of the marina.
The breakfast was a good continental breakfast and there was plenty of it.
The staff were extremely helpful and nothing was too hard. A special thanks to Christine who helped us out with advice on some businesses we were looking for. Spot on directions.
We found this quite a pleasant experience and will recommend it to friends and family.
It will be our home away from home on our next trip to Adelaide.

Room Tip: Tower rooms have great views.

We have stayed there before and this time we turned up with another three couples. So we had a group of eight people. We did arrive in our sports cars (convertables) and chose the secure parking option. Our rooms where on the 11th floor and the view was stunning right over the Marina. The Balcony is large and although we did not spend a lot of time in our rooms we would come back and stay there again. The rooms are a good size and clean. The breakfast which is included in the tarif is a basic continental breakfast with some in our groop commenting that they would like to have seen real coffee for breakfast (for an additional 10.00 per person you can upgrade to a cooked breakfast). As said you do not have to have breakfast there you can simply go along the promenade and pay for a breakfast of your liking. The location is great and you can walk to a variety of Restaurants. Although go an eat before 9.00 PM otherwise you are in trouble. We will go there again.

Thank you for taking the time to submit some feedback. I’m glad you enjoyed your stay. The top of the World Revolving Restaurant on the 12th floor is a different business to us, and therefore we have no control over their opening hours. As you mentioned however, one of the great things about our location in Glenelg, is the proximity to a great variety of restaurants and cafés.

The lady who checked us in at reception was not welcoming at all and I felt uncomfortable. We stayed in a Spa room and the bed reminded me of a hospital bed just plain white. The birthing unit at the local hospital is much nicer! There was no complimentary shampoo and conditioner only a shared body wash/soap. No bathrobes. Room service consisted of dinner only from either revolving restaurant or you have to ring the sports bar across the road then go and pick it up yourself. No option for breakfast room service and I didn't want to have to eat my breakfast in a room full of other people when this was meant to be a romantic night with my partner. I would never stay here again.

Thank you for taking the time to submit some feedback.

As we are a 3.5 star motel, in return for lower prices than a 5 star, we do not offer some services, such as complimentary bathrobes and 24 hour room service. Guests can however, order room service breakfast 7 days a week, as well as room service dinner from the Top of the World Revolving Restaurant, and room service lunch on weekends.

The type of room you stayed in has bedding with triple sheeting. This modern style of bedding is more common in higher class establishments, as opposed to the older style doona covers. If this style of bedding is not to one’s taste, then that is a matter of opinion. In the bathroom we offer wall mounted squeeze containers of hand wash, and in the shower: body wash, shampoo and conditioner.

We do encourage all our guests, if unsure of anything, or if having any problem, to contact the receptionist on duty. We would much prefer to see an issue resolved, and have our guests go on to continue enjoying their stay, than leave with a sour taste in their mouth, and post somewhat inaccurate statements on a review website.

I do apologise if you felt the receptionist who served you on arrival was unwelcoming. I will discuss this with the receptionist involved and implement further training if required.

A comfortable but basic room with newly renovated bathroom. Comfortable bed. Breakfast included in tariff, but was just toast and cornflakes and instant coffee and juice. Close to the beach with plenty of restaurants close by.

This was my second time around at the Atlantic Tower Motor Inn, and it didn't disappoint. I highly recommend spending a little extra $$$ for a spa room. You can literally watch your large TV with Foxtel in the bath with speakers in there too :) Doesn't get much better than that.

Other great touches included free wifi (day limit applies), awesomely comfortable bed, free laundry facilities, balcony for fresh air and of course the stunning views. My room on the 10th floor overlooked the Glenelg marina on one side and Adelaide on the other. Was a wonderful welcome back to Adelaide.

The service was impeccable - friendly and efficient and nothing was a hassle. A big thank you to Craig and the rest of the team for making my stay in Adelaide very special. I can't wait to return again!

Room Tip: Pay the extra to get a Premium Spa Room. Trust me.

We stayed for just 1 night in August but found it to have everything we needed.
Modern, comfortable, all mod cons, affordable, and the owner was very pleasant and helpful.
The hotel is nicely situated in Glenelg and close to all amenities.
