Positive Reviews

Appealing rooms

The hotel rooms were routinely described by visitors as being modern, clean and spacious. Guests noted that the beds were especially comfortable. Additionally, the bathrooms were reportedly spacious and cleaned to a good standard.

Beautiful location

With a waterfront location that only enhanced the beauty and grandeur of the impressive historical building, the hotel and its surroundings made a good impression on guests. Many said they enjoyed spectacular sea views from their bedrooms or balconies. Another bonus for reviewers was that the hotel was only steps away from the beach. Moreover, access to Adelaide was said to be straightforward for drivers.

Hard-working staff made a difference

The hotel staff were described as hard-working, friendly and welcoming. Many travellers paid compliments to the housekeeping team about the cleanliness of the living spaces. Diners generally rated the flavoursome and hearty meals served in the on-site restaurant.

Negative Reviews

Disappointing breakfast

Service during the breakfast rush at the on-site restaurant was too slow, according to critics. It annoyed guests that they sometimes had to wait longer than they expected to for their first meal of the day to arrive. In addition, the breakfast menu options were fairly expensive, according to budget-minded diners.

Claims that Pier Restaurant not up to scratch

Although the hearty meals were regularly praised, the service at the Pier Restaurant left something to be desired for reviewers. There were occasional claims that the waiting staff could have been more attentive to improve the guest experience.

Noise grumbles

With on-site bars and restaurants open to non-guests, this hotel was prone to getting busy at weekends. It meant guests in rooms situated closest to the bars and restaurants were bothered by occasional late-night noise.
