Just five minutes from the CBD, where all the big fashionable hotels can be found, is an absolute gem of a place, that goes close to trumping them all !!!. It may not have a pool, or a fancy gym to workout in, but its got just about everything else to make your stay enjoyable. 48 hours before our long weekend trip to Adelaide, we received a courtesy call from the Arkaba Hotel, to confirm, that we would be spending the weekend with them.? Nice touch Shaun, I replied, see you Saturday arvo!!...never had that before. That was the start of many little touches, that the Hotel had to offer. On arrival, Mrs C and I received a great welcome from the young lady at the front desk, followed by a quick and seamless check in. What really struck us about this Hotel, it's no ordinary suburban pub with some rooms tacked on as an after thought. It oozes class & charm. A rich tapestry of blues, maroon and dark coloured timbers greet you as you make your way through the reception and bar area. Our room on the sixth floor was of a standard found in some of the best hotels in the country. Immaculately clean, nice furnishings, and a marble bathroom with a huge spa bath, and separate double shower. Another feature of the room, was that it was fully smart wired,!!! From the electronic keys, to the touch screen controller on the bedside table, that took command of everything in the room, from the tv to the air-conditioning and lighting. The public facilities on offer, at The Arkaba are where the pub is a standout, a great Sports Bar, with plenty of widescreen tvs and a nice outdoor area. Tastefully furnished Bistro, serving meals from breakfast to late. A separate gaming room with pokies galore . Live music, and a intimate lounge area with a baby grand piano. All staff we encountered were terrific, professional , polite, always with a smile, really great to see, that's why we really loved our stay at "The Arkaba "and why we believe the Hotel and its management have hit on a winning formula. Great value, Great Rooms, Great staff, Great Facilities. Well done, we look forward to our next visit.!!!
