  • Stayed here for a mid week getaway. Hotel was immaculate. Wonderful service from the moment we arrived. Room was ready despite getting to the hotel early. Great location for getting around the CBD and the wineries. Gym and pool being available 24 hours was a big plus. Buffet breakfast was one of the best I have had.

  • ... everyone was so inviting and friendly. A room maid in the hallway wishing us "an enjoyable day". The Reception staff all genuinely friendly and helpful. My own career was in the service industry and I know the difference in attitude when service people enjoy and appreciate their job... To be a customer that makes a huge difference.

  • Amazed at the building and decor and the staff were so friendly and efficient. The dinner was the best we had on our three week trip around Australia, and we had some good ones.

  • One of the best hotels that I have ever stayed in. I was very impressed by the quality of the room, the cleanliness of the hotel, and the professionalism of the staff. Has a nice gym with a great dry-heat sauna and a pool. But the highlight of the hotel is it's breakfast buffet, without doubt the healthiest and most delicious buffet I have ever encountered in my travels. This hotel is a model for others to follow. I can't imagine a better hotel existing in the Adelaide area and it is superior to hotels where I have stayed in dozens of countries.

  • Great home away from home. The entire stay was exquisite, the food was fantastic and the customer service was friendly and very helpful.
