Review of Oval Hotel
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 31 Oct 2023
From the moment we checked in where we were offered a welcome drink, the service we experienced was professional and friendly.

Our room was amazing and clean with a lovely view of the cathedral. Comfy bed, pillows and beautiful amenities.

We had breakfast included which was also very yummy. Next time we will dine at Bespoke for dinner, maybe even get room service.

We couldn’t fault anything and can’t wait to get the kids babysat again and maybe try for 2 nights next time 😜

The Oval is a fabulous place to stay. The staff were exceptional, the hotel is stunning and the room as beautiful as it looked online. Everything you could need is in the room, the restaurant, bar and Cafe do not disappoint.

Loved the set up and food was amazing. Please pass my appreciation to the chef.but my room was next to the main entry at level 3. Whenever some one access the main door, I can feel the vibrations and hear the noises in my room which caused multiple interruptions at night and disrupted my sleep. I did complain about it to the reception, and they changed my room but I was forced to sleep another night in the same room as no other room was available. Didn’t sleep well for 2 nights, hence rating is low. Thanks

Thank you 911harshr for taking the time to review Oval Hotel.

I certainly understand the reasoning for the rating you provided. Naturally, we certainly wish that this maintenance issue could have been resolved. It is by no means our common standard of service levels and a maintenance problem we have now resolved.

If there is anything else though that I can assist with then please do not hesitate to reach out to me.

Kind regards, Mieke Sellers

The hotel had friendly staff and very soft beds. The room was very modern and clean and we had a lovely view of St Peter’s Cathedral. Loved the experience, will definitely be back again. Breakfast was tasty and was nice to look out over the oval while we ate.

Great venue…and the Five Regions restaurant was amazing. Treat yourself to a great experience with a sporting twist. Breakfast with a view of Adelaide Oval, lunch watching a state one day game…sport lovers dream.
