“Seawall apartments are great”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

Even though we had gale force winds and rain, the apartments were lovely, clean and cosy. Central to Glenelg itself and the staff were A1. I guarantee you will have a great holiday if you stay at Seawall Apartments. Our unit was a two bedroom, two bathroom (including spa bath) with a self contained kitchen. The linen was lovely and fresh, the kitchen items immaculately clean - the entire experience was great.

Room Tip: we had a mountain view room but you can also get ocean facing rooms

Dear Keith G, Thanks!
I never get tired of hearing what our wonderful guest have to say about their Seawall experience - A1 staff makes me very, very happy; spotlessly clean makes the amazing Liz and her team of housekeepers smile for days, comfy, warm, great atmosphere - makes us think we are doing it right!
Thank you for the feedback, it means the world to us,
Best wishes,
Rachael, Jayne, Sophie, Dave, Sam, Liz and the lovely housekeepers.

Modern renovation of an old building gives this property a great atmosphere.We stayed in a ground floor 2 bedroom apartment during a very cold and stormy few days in Adelaide.The reverse cycle aircon heated the very clean and spacious apartment well. Kitchen well equipped, bedrooms very generous sizes with the most comfortable beds.Car parking onsite very convenient.Location fantastic right on beach and only short walk to shops/cafes.

Thanks for taking the time to post your wonderful review EminOz2014.
It sounds as though you were very comfortable and toasty warm on these recent cold days! I'm glad the family was able to make the best of our lovely location and that you got out and about to the sights of Adelaide despite the blustery weather!
Hope to see you again on a sunny day soon,
Kind regards,
Rachael

We had a last minute trip to Adelaide for a family funeral and needed to stay around the Glenelg area. A quick google search came up with several rather dated looking hotels which were not our "cup of tea". Thankfully we also stumbled across Seawall Apartments, which turned out to be the perfect spot for our 2 night stay. The Seawall Apartments are full of character and have been lovingly refurbished into neat, modern self-catering apartments/units. Super clean and cosy with all the mod cons you need for a comfortable stay. The spa was a welcome way to relax at the end of the day and we loved falling asleep listening to the soothing sounds of the ocean - which is literally at you front door.

We would highly recommend the Seawall Apartments and are thinking of coming back to stay when it warms up to take full advantage of the beach front location.

Thanks to Sophie from front of house for making booking and check in so quick and easy and for making us feel welcome during our stay.

My family of five stayed here and really loved the friendly helpful staff and the old-world charm and feel of the place. Spotless but also has all the modern touches you need. Unfortunately we had to leave so could only stay one night! Thanks. I don't give many reviews but where i am impressed i feel it is appropriate.

The apartments were very nice and comfortable. The kitchen was also well-stocked which made preparing meals a breeze. The location was a mere 500m or so to the town centre where all the shops were. It was very easy to access the beach. The decor/setup of Seawall Apartments was interesting and very welcome. My children were delighted with the accommodations.

I only stayed one night ... in different circumstances more than one night would have been very enjoyable.

Seawall is well located in the heart of Glenelg. And the room I was allocated was brilliant - should I stay again I will ask for this one.

Because I was only there briefly it is hard to offer insightful comment - but one thing I will comment on. My plane was arriving late, and I advised the office accordingly. In no time at all I received a return email explaining where my key would be, and who to contact in event of problems. Very good service.

Seawall is an apartment complex, and not a 4/5 star hotel so I have commented form that perspective. However highly recommended. I hope that I can make it back.
