The staff were very friendly and attentive... the breakfast was simply delicious and the breakfast staff are fantastic. It’s a cool hotel and the decor of the hotel gives it character... we will stay again as we really enjoyed our stay.

Every meal we had in the restaurant was sensational. The location was perfect for exploring Adelaide. We would happily return for another stay.

  • Amazing! Great hotel, great staff. The BEST hotel in Adelaide! We will always stay here from now on and will recommend to everyone... loved every minute.
