If you choose to walk you will pass historic homes and can take in the vista of the city and Lake Torrens that the elevation of North Adelaide offers.The main house is two stories accessed by an impressive staircase rising from reception. A balcony on the first floor has views across parklands to the Adelaide Hills. Our guest lounge offers a place to relax with a good book or one of our many magazines. During summer our rose garden is in bloom and our rear garden offers a shady spot to relax.Your Hosts David and Andrew look forward to welcoming you when you are next in Adelaide.

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.

Motel had everything we needed, clean room, comfortable beds, nice complementary breakfast, convenient quiet location at a good price. The free connector bus was literally two minutes walk away and only a few minutes ride to Rundle Mall. Very nice owners too.

There was some bad things: bad smell, rooms not 100% clean, sink not draining well. But the location and staffs as well are rates are the good things. Very friendly receptionist told us all about locality and different places to go eat.

Loved it! The rest of our road trip was mostly motels, so this was what I’d say is more of a B&B. The building is so quaint and lovely, and the managers are fantastic. The free city connector bus is about 50 metres from the front door, so everything is accessible, and there’s a great strip of restaurants/cafes about 2 blocks away. The only negative would be it’s an old building so there is a bit of noise.. just footsteps up the stairs etc, nothing crazy. We’ll definitely stay again the next time we visit Adelaide!

Beautiful old Italianate building now operating as a Lodge. Is a bit run down but lovely operators willing to help with your enquiries. Very large single bed but extremely small bathroom. Had to sit on toilet side ways. Lovely shower though.

We stayed there for 1 night on the 7th April. Within walking distance of Adelaide Oval, shops, restaurants, Cafes, Womens and Childrens Hospital and a short free bus ride to the city, A lovely warm welcome from the hosts. A free continental breakfast in a breakfast room, well set out with white and brown bread for toasting, 4 different cereals, tinned fruit, OJ and a coffee machine. Our room was comfortable, with an ensuite, air con, fridge, wifi, coffee and tea facilities, 2 chairs and a small table and a tv. Free parking on premises and across the road from a childrens playground.

The proximity to Adelaide Oval and the CBD whilst still being nestled in a quiet part of North Adelaide and overlooking a park were all just added bonuses on what was a very enjoyable stay at the Princes Lodge. Comfortable beds, quiet rooms, friendly staff and a free Continental breakfast thrown in, what could be better than that. Definitely would stay here again if I were to return to Adelaide.

I booked this motel on a last minute deal, it looked lovely and well priced. However an employee proceeded to calm me and yell at me for using the wrong card, forcing me to cancel my booking. I have never been spoken to like this and was shocked. This is appalling and I would not recommend this to anyone.

I loved staying here, the room was awesome, The bed was very comfortable. It was spotlessly clean and well presented. The Staff were friendly and very helpful. I couldn't reccommend this Motel highly enough. I will be coming back here on more of my trips.
