Reviewed yesterday NEW

Room was clean. Bed was comfortable BUT there were no clothes hangers. There was a microwave but no plates, bowls or cutlery apart from a couple of teaspoons and cups. What is the point of having a microwave if you've got nothing to eat with? Ok, I accept that I could have gotten some, however, there are no shops nearby....

Went here for a wedding. The location was nice and close to everything we needed to get to in Adelaide. In terms of price, I paid $150 for two nights, for a single room, which was alright. I knew it wasn't going to be anything fancy. The first thing that struck me was the extreme smell of air freshener in...

Hi Furredesign, Thanks for taking the time to write your review. First i would like to apologise for the air freshner extravaganza, The housekeeping supervisor is trained to apply one spray of our air freshner to make the room more inviting on entry but it seems they may have been a little trigger happy on that day. I have already...

Rooms are reasonably clean however very noisy when raining as it was almost impossible to sleep. Pool was also reasonably maintained It is a good budget place at Adelaide doorstep do not expect much though.

Let's start with positives because it won't take long. The staff were friendly and helpful and there's free parking. We stayed a night here which we organised at the last minute as unfortunately for us Adelaide was heavily booked. Wow! It was so dirty, smelly and unhygienic. From endless strands of other people's head and body hair throughout the bathroom...

Cheap and comfortable hotel. Quite convenient to the city. Wi-Fi was an unexpected bonus. The toilet in room three was a bit wobbly on its base. It is quite close to some convenient fast food restaurants as well as some nice Asian cuisine. The entrance to the car park is very narrow and would not allow two cars at the...

I am furious about my stay there. The site advertised a pool = No access to pool. I was advised 'it is open in the summer', when I brought it up again it was because 'the weather had been so bad' it wasn't open. Surely this should be available to guests who 'choose' whether to use the pool - after...
