Superb 9.0 From 173 reviews

Good 6.0
Our room was great, except for the too close proximity to the bar, which was directly downstairs. This would be a great spot for those who seek the night life. But that is not us. Between the booming bass & other guests smoking on the porch directly outside our windows, it was not conducive to a restful night's sleep. HOWEVER...the staff were lovely, check-in a breeze and they graciously extended our check-out upon a last minute request. We met family in the beer garden, which was a hopping fun place on a Friday afternoon. There was a no charge mini-bar stocked with water, soda, beer as well a cute brown bag of snacks.The room itself was beautiful with a very comfortable king bed and reading chair. The bathroom gorgeous with a glass shower and soaking tub. Proximity to the market could not have been better, for both an early breakfast and late morning coffee. Bottom line...we recommend this place if you are a night owl.

Very good 8.0
Nifty boutique hotel above a great pub
Fresh and trendy decor. Sits above a pub which I was slightly hesitant about when I arrived but the sound proofing was great. Slept very soundly. Complementary mini bar - definitely a nice touch! Windows sat high up in my room so no real view for me. Not a huge minus if you're out most of the time but not a place to lounge around. Pub downstairs very trendy but relaxed, nice atmosphere and friendly staff. Pub bar also doubles up as reception which wasn't quite clear when I arrived and I got there just behind a big group of people ordering drinks. Super friendly and helpful staff but obviously not there 24/7. Shower doesn't have a screen or curtain on one side so water goes everywhere. Bit annoying to have a slippery, wet floor for the rest of the day / evening. Water pressure also not very good at all. Assume it's affected by someone else also showing at the same time. Easy key drop off in the morning. Would recommend for an easy stay.

Awesome Trendy Hotel with Pub Scene
Location is ideal, near a bus station and walking distance to everything in the city. Room was groovy, nicely modernised while also keeping it's traditional charm & a huge & luxurious bathroom with bath tub. Also had a bar fridge, Nespresso pod machine, TV & air con, and was comfortable. The building itself is very cool, the pub and beer garden are comfortable & popular during the day and night, good food & beer selection. Has a nice balcony overlooking the street. If you're staying on a Friday or Saturday there's a bit of noise from the pub downstairs but it's a great vibe. Staff were friendly, and we were upgraded to an even better room on arrival. Would definitely recommend and can't wait to stay again.

Friendly well appointed historical hotel
Historical hotel with less than 10 rooms but each room individually well decorated and appointed with en-suite bathroom. Clean, comfortable with firm bed, hot water and cold air-conditioning. Room has iron and board, nice range of designer toiletries, greeting bag of free confectionery and most amazing of all, free mini-bar containing beer, cider, soft drinks and water! Please bear in mind this is an Australian pub. Reception is at the main bar in the hotel and therefore check in is only available from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Check out is any time by dropping key in the box as you leave. Baggage storage available if you go away for a few days traveling.

A Hotel not to be missed
Dont be put off by the pictures. We have stayed there 2 times in two different rooms. Luxury and ordinary both top quality, with the twist of a free fridge great for having a drink on the balcony. Located walking distance to everything in Adelaide. Modern showers comfortable beds and service perfect. I don't know if they plan it but Chloe looked after us on both stays, they waited up for us to return from Kangaroo Island the pick up opposite was very helpful. ps its above a Pub which does great food, check on sizes if you are a light eater quality was good
