We stayed for a couple of nights and couldn't fault a thing. The room was lovely and spacious and had everything we needed with a few lovely touches. The bed was very comfortable and the shower was great. We stayed in the original house and spent the early part of both evenings in one of the rooms of the house...

The hotel has recently undergone a upgrade. I have stayed at the hotel in the past and been to functions there too. This time we went for a short family break. The staff were all friendly and very helpful. The rooms we had were good sized and nicely decorated. We had hoped to go to the new restaurant, which has...

The hotel is situated on a hill overlooking Adelaide city. I was fesinated by the history of this hotel. The rooms were impressive with an outdoor setting to enjoy. I like the lounge area where you can bring a book to read or a conversation or even a game of chess. All in all it was an impressive stay.

This is a gem, delivering a first class experience in an historic setting. I saw this property before it was destroyed in the Ash Wednesday bushfires, saw it after the fire, in which it was devastated, and now it has come back as a wonderful hotel. There was no sign of the rude staff some have commented on, no sign...
