The Staff were helpful as always, and welcomed me back The location is excellent, a generally quiet hotel, with very little traffic noise, and yet the walk into town is short and very pleasant, and there are good pubs and cafes nearby

Excellent location, close to everything in the city, but with olde world charm. A no fuss hotel with a sense of comfort I associate with the good old days, yet with all mod cons. I'd stay again and look forward to it.

An elegant hotel that is different and classy, in the heart of Adelaide. The amenities are superb and the room was five star. There are excellent staff available 24hrs and nothing is a problem for them. We found this gem at a bargain price on booking.com and the surprise was wonderful.

Very welcoming front desk; nothing too much trouble. Reasonably quiet area not too far from Adelaide's main attractions, and we'd happily stay there again. Possibly a little pricey, but we were there for cricket so probably supply and demand reality.

Every staff is so professional and also love the atmosphere of the hotel. It is so near to many restaurants, grocery, shopping as well as the lovely botanic garden. It is so great not to have to ask for any refills in our room and didn't lose some cash where I accidently left in the cupboard. Overall, a pleasant memorable...
