We have been eating in the Bistro for years. It is a cosy environment and a bit old school as the decor hasn't changed for as long as I can remember. There is a good range of pub type meals and salad bar. The pricing is very reasonable and there are specials most nights of the week. We always enjoy... More

It was the Easter long weekend and we got the last room available at a reasonable price. Thank goodness it was downstairs but it was extremely noisy . The room was clean but needed some TLC. We could not get the TV to work and had to get the manager to tune it in. We also complained about the noise.... More

We have been several times to the bar at this hotel/motel for lunch. It is a traditional bar with the TAB agency and televisions with racing and sports flat out but a great atmosphere. Te decor is a bit tired but they do a great burger range including fish, chicken or beef with a pint of Coopers for about $15.... More

Motel rooms are a bit tired (curtains and carpet), but if you are looking for a very clean comfortable place to lay you head it is great. Close to Glenelg main st and many restaurants. Friendly staff. It is part of a hotel complex, which wasn't too noisy, the Hotel sells hearty pub meals at pub prices.

Stayed here on Adelaide Cup weekend due to work. Excellent help from front desk nothing to much trouble. We originally had Queen room but needed to change to triple at last minute and very easy to deal with. Room was just perfect for what we wanted. Clean, comfy beds, quiet and nice bath towels. Will stay here again next year.... More

We arrived at 11 at night. The staff member met us at the door checked us in and showed us to the door of our room. The room was serviced daily by staff members. Traveling with a child the family rooms cater for a family of five. Overall was really impressed with the size and the room.
