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.

You are wowed from the moment you walk in! Being able to stay at the incredible Adelaide Oval is something everyone should experience. The decor is amazing and the rooms stunning, very clean and large. The staff were all so friendly and welcoming. It has great amenities including complimentary tea, hot chocolate and coffee in the reception. The location in the city and proximity to the central train station made getting around super easy. We can’t wait to visit again!

Opulent but understated The Oval Hotel is a beautifully designed hotel discreetly attached to the world class Adelaide Oval. We had a relaxing stay Christmas Eve in an elegantly furnished room with amazing views. Every staff member we dealt with was warm and friendly and genuinely interested in us having a memorable stay. 5 stars from me

Spent one night here after the women's one day international at the Oval. The room was lovely, the service was superb, and the breakfast was absolutely delicious. We had a wonderful time and we will definitely return to this excellent hotel in future.

The stay at your Hotel with my friend was lovely, it’s the second time we have stayed there and absolutely loved it, the staff are so friendly, the rooms have been excellent and the beds are so soft we didn’t want to leave , the room service was very nice but we were looking forward to the pancakes for breakfast but unfortunately they weren’t on the menu this time. I very much look forward to staying with you again. 🙂

The whole experience was great. The staff, dinner,breakfast,room and valet parking were all excellent. We were only there one night but it was a lovely mini getaway. I would recommend the Oval Hotel to anyone who would like to come and enjoy some shopping and enjoying the magnificent parkland and then have a delightful dinner whilst enjoying the sunset over the Oval. Breakfast was enjoyed while watching the groundstaff prepare for the women's one day match that day,

Bed was like a marshmallow to sleep on! Guest experience was great, staff were super friendly and helpful with everything we asked. Features in the room were great (loved the touch of a button of almost everything) I live in Adelaide but being so close to the city and being able to walk everywhere was great rather than driving around trying to find parking

The bed and pillows were great. But there was no mention their main restaurant was permanently closed. The coffee shop and the malthouse brewery aren't in the hotel. Unimpressed with the water temperature in the shower. Even adjusted to the maximum the water was tepid. Yet the water in the sink was quite hot.

Thank you for sharing you review of Oval Hotel. Naturally, we too are disappointed that your experience was not of a five star rating; we are sorry that we fell short of your expectations. Our main restaurant is Bespoke Bar Wine and Kitchen is still open. Our degustation, fine dining restaurant Five Regions which was open Thursday to Saturday is the one that is now permanently closed. We have this information on the websites to assist guests as well as the information relating to KoffeeInk and Malt Shovel Taphouse. I can see that you booked via a third party website hence I will review what we can do there to best explain this to our wider community. I do though hope that we have an opportunity to welcome you here again for a stay to remember for all the right reasons. Many thanks, Mieke and the Oval Hotel team.

Lovely hotel with great amenities. We had the deluxe package with a cathederal view, valet parking, drink on arrival, bottle of bubbles for our room and breakfast the next day. It was a wonderful indulgence. Staff were friendly. The view over Adelaide Oval whilst having breakfast is first class and so therapeutic.
