Lovely hotel with a history, with welcoming staff and quaint corridors all over the place! Very comfortable bed and functioning bathroom - I slept very well and enjoyed my continental breakfast by the fireplace in the old dining room.

Where can you get a room with double and single bed for under $100 in Adelaide. Ambassadors was charming and had very helpful staff. Loved the old world charm and proximity to venues and restaurants. Would highly recommend

After I booked my room online I checked Google Earth for directions and couldn't find the hotel. Nestled between two skyscrapers the hotel is almost invisible. The reception desk in the foyer had been abandoned mid-renovation so you checked in at the gaming area. I also discovered the ninety five year old lift doesn't reach the third floor and the...

We arrived and waited for someone to check us in. When the reception did arrive she was welcoming and polite. The hotel is shabby and that is the kindest thing I can say about it. The rooms we had were dark dirty and cold. Our shower was untiled. The water out of the hot water tap was brown and disgusting....

The hotel was very dated and needed refurbishment. The lift stank even if it was the oldest in SA. The room was cold even with the heater on 24/7. Could not drawer one pair of curtains as they covered the heater. There was no extra bedding available in the room. Broken tiles in bathroom. Wish we had looked at reviews...

The hotel is centrally located near the mall and in the city centre very near to a tram station and everything is in walking distance. The hotel though is in need of some renovations. there are random passages that lead to absolutely no where and a staircase that leads you to a dead end. the elevator only goes up to...

Attended a 21st function upstairs in the balcony room. Was pleasantly surprised at quality of standard wines served. Seemed better than par for a function like this. The two young guys in charge couldn't keep The two open fires going which was a shame as these added to the ambience. Food was satisfactory run of the mill cocktail food. I...
