Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Management "stand over merchants",had an issue with paying at the time but fronted up & tried to explain the situation until it was sorted out. What happened was unbelievable despite some people may have"cut & run" in the past or ? The manager called the police & thankfully they were reasonable & didn't do an arrest although the way they were carrying on they were trying to request for how the police should do their job!! Anyhow, couldn't get out of there fast enough when paid the money & the lift was terrible with how old & unsafe. Room so small & bed uncomfortable. Shower pressure not good either. Never ate or drank in the restaurant as it was too expensive & felt so bad as the management wasn't welcoming too.

Had Lunch there today with my work colleagues. It was great. Lunch prices are fantastic and meals came out quickly which is fantastic when you only have a hour break. Upstairs in the Glass room is very nice and relaxing. I'll be going back for sure :-)

Has my sons 21st here recently in the upstairs function rooms. The glasshouse / Atrium. Recently renovated. Organisation went very smoothly with Michele. The staff were wonderful. I was very impressed by the food platters. We all had a wonderful evening. Great location and good value. Will definitely consider having further functions here.

Having travelled a lot in past 3 years, this is the worst hotel i have found anywhere. It was a brothel, I believe, , still looks like one. Had no choice and much regretted it. Just imagine it, cant be bothered with photos. Will not improve. Rating 0.5.

We booked this hotel for one night through booking.com on our arrival in Adelaide. Firstly we were surprised to find it had a noisy gaming bar attached and all looked rather seedy. Secondly, the bar area was closed for renovation. Thirdly the photos on booking.com were nothing like what we were presented with. We were directed to our room down a maze of run down and scruffy corridors, having got to the floor via a decrepit and knocked about lift. The room was at the end of the hotel, painted dark navy blue but with white scuff marks all along the walls. With a double bed and one single (which we didn't ask for) it was cramped, dark and run down with a small, rather unsavoury bathroom, and a tiny rectangular high window with wired glass providing the only natural light. More like a prison cell than the hotel room we had paid a considerable amount for in advance. My husband returned to reception to request something better but the manager on duty was EXTREMELY rude and unhelpful saying that we had been given what we paid for in this 'heritage budget' hotel, accused my husband of threatening him when he suggested we might stay elsewhere, and shouted that we wouldn't get any money refunded if we did so. He then offered to move us a 'renovated' room for an extra $70. After viewing the room we reluctantly paid this; it was admittedly better with a good bathroom and in better shape with a double bed shoved up against the wall and two single beds. However, although the decor was certainly an improvement, there was no wardrobe, a noisy air conditioning unit was immediately at the foot of one the beds and the windows (overlooking the back with no view) were completely filthy. The following morning we went to the 'breakfast room', we were the only people there with no staff present. The breakfast consisted of unappetising jars of cereal and stale packets of bread to toast yourself. Three pats of butter between two of us. Altogether a dire experience, the worst accommodation we have stayed in throughout our several times in Australia. Avoid at all costs.

This hotel doesn’t even derserve 1 star. It’s dirty and unsafe. Staff is ok untill they are called on the bad shape of the hotel (beds are ok). The offered breakfast is poor. Creepy hotel, nasty staff. Best to stay far away from this hotel.

Our walk on the way to the room was filthy, we spent 5 minutes in the room. We were so disgusted by the stench where we had to leave as the smell made breathing difficult, smelt like pure crap. There was mould and salt damp everywhere. My daughter, who has breathing problems anyway, became very ill. Management were rude and kept saying ‘it is a heritage hotel’. No concerns from them at all for the fact it was unhealthy to breath that sort of air and with no windows. This place should not be called a hotel but instead a backpackers hostel or should be closed down. Asked for a refund and was denied. Wish I took photos but had no time to stay and take them in our rushed moment to get out

Bed was comfy. Sheets clean. Rest was crap, unclean. Outrageous $140 pn. Often seen cheaper. "Renovating" over 20-40 years, possibly. See info photo. Go elsewhere. 2nd worst ever found in Adelaide. Pile of vomit seen in hallway in p.m. YUK. Staff were nice. Probably embarrassed to work there.
