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.

Recently renovated 2 bedroom apartment with full kitchen, laundry and secure car parking. Loved the short walk to O'Connell St and the various breakfast cafes in the area. Unit was spotless and well maintained. Highly recommended for leisure or business accommodation.

We stayed in the studio apartment on Archer Street for 8 glorious weeks. We stayed here as we searched for a new home. When we found it, leaving this lovely apartment was not so easy. How one can become so attached to a one room studio!
The apartment was spotless, the cleaning service each week was brilliant. Beautiful quality linen weekly. We had everything we needed supplied and cooked at home most nights. There is Foodland supermarket next door and the fantastic free bus takes you right to central market.
We found the studio so very quiet, safe and in a great suburb. The little courtyard was lovely on a sunny day.
The bed was extremely comfortable and we thought the free local calls and unlimited wi fi very generous.
As for the amazing staff at Dress Circle..... nothing was ever too much trouble. Why would you stay anywhere else.
North adelaide itself provided us with beautiful walks, picnics in parks and the city just 20 minute walk away. Or that fabulous free bus service. The Picadilly cinema just 5 minute walk away was great on a rainy day.
We has a safe secure car park.
Our stay was faultless and we cannot recomend this company and apartments highly enough.

Location : Visited on a short holiday break and didn't want to stay in North Tce in the city, so the surburb of North Adelaide was nice, close enough to drive/walk and quiet as it's a mainly residential area. Dresscircle has several properties, but picked this one on Archer St mainly for its central location and next to North Adelaide Village (small shopping mall).

Pre-arrival : E-mail communication with the Dresscircle staff after booking and before arrival was excellent, they promptly answered my queries about bed arrangement and key collection. Pickup of the keys at their office was quick, and easy enough to navigate a few streets to the apartment location.

Parking : The gate remote control is a little slow to respond but otherwise works well. There are designated parking lots for each apartment, with the lots for the higher floor apartments being closer to the building. Most of the parking lots are sheltered, with about 6 being unsheltered.

Room : The 2-bedroom apartment layout was good and of a reasonable size for 3-4 people. Both the beds and sofa were comfortable. Kitchen was fully equipped. Only minor point was the remote control for the aircon/heater. The one in the living room had a weak battery and wasn't working well, and had to use the other from the bedroom. Only 1 of the bedrooms had an aircon/heater. It was okay as the weather during our stay was mild, but may be too warm in summer/cold in winter. Nice spacious patio as we were on the ground floor. Wi-Fi signal was strong and connection was good.

Bathroom : The combi exhaust / light / heater in the bathroom worked well. There wasn't much tabletop/horizontal space in the bathroom to place stuff. Only 1 small piece of soap was provided, and we had to go get some more from the supermarket. The washer and dryer were in a separate room, and worked well. Couple of packs of laundry detergent were provided.

Surroundings : The neighbourhood is quiet and predominantly residential. A short 50 m walk to O Connell St gave us access to cafes and restaurants, and we had breakfast at the Cibo's on the corner. Bakery on O Connell is also open 24 hours, so we could get food anytime. There is also a Caltex petrol station about 100 m north of Archer St, which was convenient for us to fill up our rental car before going to the airport. Some others have written about noise from being in the airport's flight path, but it wasn't noticeable indoors. Anyway, most of North Adelaide is in the same flight path, and it doesn't seem to trouble the residents.

We found the apartment very noisy (road noise, on a flight path and maintenance noise early in the morning), decor is very dated and old, windows are drafty and the whole place seems very dusty.

No, we wouldn't stay here again!

We thank you for your time to write a review. We are very concerned about the issues you raise. We are sorry we were not given the opportunity to address things at the time, as we are unable to find the problems with the apartment you raised upon your departure. Outside noise in a City is beyond our control, however we would have been happy to assist with one of our other locations perhaps more suitable to your needs at the time. We do hope we are able to assist you again in the future and offer a better experience

Our first floor, spotlessly clean, two bed apartment had all the basics for the five nights we were there. The beds were comfortable and there was ample hot water for the shower. Kitchen was well equipped with new appliances. The small balcony overlooked the street.
Some maintenance issues (broken light shade, trip hazard rug, wobbly sink tap) but these did not spoil our stay. Staff assured us they would be attended to. Parking was available at the rear of the block
From the very first 'phone call from UK to enquire about their apartments we had the best possible service from ADC staff - they couldn't have been more helpful and even took us by car from their office (where we had arrived by shuttle from the airport) to the apartment. What's more we were allowed early access as well - great after a 30 hour flight!
Wifi was fast but dropped out daily - easily fixed but a niggle none the less. Apparently there had been telecoms issues in the North Adelaide area for some days.
Location is great. Only minutes to the Village mall for groceries etc. and O'Connell street has plenty of eateries to offer. A 20 minute walk, downhill, will bring you to Rundle Mall if you don't want to wait for the free Connector Buses just around the corner.
Downsides - not really. The reverse cycle heating struggled for a couple of days during our stay when the temperature dropped. A thermostatic shower would be an improvement to avoid the occasional cold/hot shock. TV channels were only free-to-air

The location is good, the apartment is spacious, and quite modern. The outside looks dated, but the area is safe. It is on the flight path, but not noisy at all. The area is full of restaurants, and a 20 minute walk into the centre of the city. Easy to book, and the staff friendly. would recommend

What a joke. Had to go to North Adelaide to pick up the key for an apartment on North Tce in the city and office was not easily found. The directions given to find the carpark on North Tce were not clear. Finally found it and then the key did not fit padlock for the bollard in our designated carpark so could not park. The spa and sauna were closed for maintenance, and pool was not clean. I specifically booked accommodation with these facilities to relax after our 7 hour drive. When leaving we had to use key to open roller door of carpark, then get someone to go back up to the room and drop it off, while we waited on North Tce in a no parking area.

Oh dear! I thank you for your review but I am sorry you did not feel you had a good experience. The key collection at our office for after hours or weekends, is a new system for us. We have had many guests through who have found it very easy to manage, and really like the self serve aspect as it bypasses any lengthy check-in at desks. This helps us keep our rates low so we can include many things like the car-park & WIFI free of charge We are always on call 24/7 if assistance is needed, our phone number is everywhere and we attend to any needs instantly. It is a shame you did not call if you had issues with the car park, we could have been straight there to help. Regarding the pool facilities, we unfortunately do not have control over this area, it is part of the strata of the building and from time to time, parts need taking down for maintenance. However I can assure you that the pool is perfectly clean, as required by regulations and is well maintained. I will reassess our information and instructions to see if we can make it clearer. Can I just also add, that you have posted this review on our Archer St apartment location, I believe your stay was our Nth Terrace apartments. I am pleased to hear that you found the apartment lovely with everything you needed in place. We do work very hard to ensure our apartments are well maintained and well equipped. I really do hope we can assist you with our great apartments and great rates in the furture Kind Regards Trudy

We rented a 2-bedroom apartment; it was very comfortable and in a good location in north Adelaide. I had asked for a one-bedroom, but needed to change, which they were happy to do. I think they have different apartments in slightly different locations.

We were delighted to be located right next to O'Connell Street so close to a supermarket, coffee shops and public transport. With a kitchen and lounge room it was a real home away from home. The kids had space to move around and the courtyard was a real treat in the mornings. Free wifi was also handy.
