False Advertising

Posted May 5, 2014 on Hotels.com
The room itself was fine (basic, but clean and comfortable and in line with the rate we paid), we had booked on the basis that on site parking was available. However, we arrived to a handwritten note saying "sorry no parking tonight". As hotel reception was closed, we called hotels.com and the response received from staff was abysmal. Extremely disappointing.

Sorry you were caught out the only day we had to close the yard due to paving. But in fairness there is mention on the Expedia site that we were undertaking this work.

Well the good news is that the new owners have found new cleaning contractors and a new linen service. The beds in the new queen rooms are 5star pillow top mattresses and the studio apartments are yet to be renovated. I have posted some new photos of each.

Close to CBD and free transport

Posted Jan 29, 2014
Pros: Proximity to transport and city
Cons: water pressure - had a fight with hot/cold water every morning
Location: close to CBD, free transport, restaurants, shops, cinema
This accommodation was very handy for my needs. Almost everything was within walking distance and free transport to the city. Unfortunately half of the premises were being renovated and it seemed like a building site. Also it is under the flight path to Adelaide airport, so noisy at times. However, we enjoyed our stay, we had friends to meet and O'Connell Street was just around the corner with a great choice of eating places.

Thanks for the review. We are now up to the paving, next the outside of the brick building will be plastered then the insides of the studio rooms. The new owners are turning this into a great boutique hotel as you noted so close to the good life in North Adelaide.

Thanks for taking the time to resound. It is encouraging us to perform better as the new owners have undertaken the challenge to up date this property to an upmarket boutique hotel.

Watch out for this one

Posted Nov 14, 2013 on Hotels.com
There is one bonus to this property... it is in a great location. IT SHOULD BE NOTED THAT THERE IS MAJOR CONSTRUCTION GOING ON HERE. Very limited parking. Even though the staff was very eager to make things right, our unit was not self contained... only a coffee press and small refrig. This was a very small hotel unit with very limited amenities. It did work out for us as we only used the unit to sleep and shower, being gone the rest of the day. Unit was clean, good bed and close to the restaurant strip, but not much else.

Thanks for the review. Reading between the lines we agree the location is what make it worth the effort and expense to do a complete make over.

Average hotel, but location is great.

Posted Oct 6, 2013
Location: There are plenty of restaurants and pubs, and a cinema near by. Very convenient.
Noisy early in the morning on weekdays due to constructions. The 3-ppl room had a double + a single bed with a small table and 2 chairs. The room is so small that it didn't even have much room left to fit an extra chair in for the third person. The only good thing about the place is that it is so close to restaurants and public transports, and car parking is available.

Thanks for your comments. I have added some more recent photos of the studio apartments so you can get a better idea. In the next stage of renovating these rooms we will take on board your comments, thanks

Thanks for being so generous with the score, even though you were disturbed by our trades people. I have made different arrangements now with the builders. To be honest parking is still a problem sometimes as we are now re doing the whole paving (March)
