We were struggling to get accommodation in Adelaide and this was one of the last rooms left, so we snapped it up and we certainly weren't disappointed with a corner room over looking Semaphore foreshore with a loft bedroom. Free wifi sweetened the deal. Being above shops we were worried about the street noise, but there was none even on...

Stayed here a few nights for work. Entrance is round the back of the Main Street, up some stairs. Apartment was lovely and clean. Facilities good and a nice little balcony. Everything very modern.

Thank you for your feedback. The donuts and ice cream are delicious but dangerous. We have checked the heating and it is working. We will monitor this in case there is an intermittent problem. We are always contactable by phone to address any issues that may arise during guests stay so we can promptly address them.

The apartments are very clean and spacious, the kitchen is well equipped. My only compliant was the pillows are very hard. (New pillows and the place would be perfect). We loved the location, it was great walking to restaurants and the beach and only 25 minutes drive to the city. We stayed for 7 nights in JANUARY 2015
