Botanic Hotel: Victorian Architecture

I'm not sure whether we stayed here or whether my grandmother just took this photo because of the name of the hotel (because we were on a tour with the Iris Society). I also don't know if this is still a hotel or just the location of a restaurant

This is a heritage listed building, which with its tiered balconies, "displays the splendid exuberance of Victorian style and traditions of 19th century Australian pub architecture". This stepping back of verandahs is a device peculiar to Adelaide and Brisbane.

According to the website, in other places in Austrilia the footpath-wide verandahs were continued through the full height of the building on every floor

Mantra on Frome: Great serviced apartments

Sadly only one night but Mantra on Frome is one of the best serviced apartments I have stayed in - possibly helped by the fact I was upgraded to a 2 bedroomed apartment.

All mod cons, incredibly comfortable, lots of natural light and in the case of my room, no less than 3 (small) terraces.

One block from Rundle St and Rundle St Mall pedestrian shopping precinct, two blocks from North Terrace and the State museums/galleries.

Extremely welcoming, very friendly, incredibly comfortable with everything you would expect from a top quality service apartment.

On the ground floor, the award-winning Andre's Cucina and Polenta Bar is located - open for breakfast and lunch from Tues-Sun and dinner seven nights a week.

Shakespeare's Backpackers International (Shakey's): a central backpackers

The best part about this Hostel was that it's nice and central to where we wanted to be in the CBD, the Central Markets and the Rundle Mall.
However the first word that comes to mind when I think of it is "poky dorm rooms". The bunks were comfortable enough, but the pillows were covered in plastic which was most uncomfortable. The sheets were old, worn, and didn't look completely clean.
After day 2 we were used to it but when first arriving it's a bit of a shock how basic rooms & facilities are (apart from the large kitchen and lounge area which are a plus)

The kitchen is probably the best point - it's large and the stovetop burners look modern, and plenty of them. However, there's no microwave, which was unexpected. The kitchen is also pretty clean (at least when we were there)

weintal resort: Weintal Resort,Barossa Valley, South Australia.

We just stayed at the Weintal Resort in the Barossa Valley, SA, Australia in december 2008. It says resort on the sign, but in our opinion that is where it ends. In our opinion it is just an old flag type inn, and not real cheap either, We had no hot water in the morning, so no hot shower, rang the night manager - no answer. When I asked them about it, they came across as if we had put them out, too much of a hassle for them. Their attitude when I registered my dissatisfaction didn't change, they simply didn't care. They wouldn't even refund our breakfast for the inconvenience. There is a Novotel Resort in Tanunda also and we suggest to book in there instead, in our opinion don't waste your money or time at the Weintal. Having mentioned the subject to aquaitances we find out that other people have had the same experience and have the same opinion as us and vowed not to go back either.

they do have a pool.

Elizabeth Moror Inn: Elizabeth Motor Inn

This place is cheap but also pretty basic. If you are just looking for a place to crash then it's ok but for an extended stay it might not suit everyone.
In the room there is a queen bed (with electric blankets), small couch, tv, fridge, phone and alarm clock. In the bathroom there is a small shower and toilet. It's a very small bathroom. Some rooms have spas also.

Over the road from the Elizabeth City Shopping Center.
Located on the Main North Road.
Discount to RAAF service personnel.

Stamford Grand Glenelg: On the beach.

Its a great hotel offering stunning views of the beach. Ask for beach view otherwise you will get street view which is pretty boring. Rooms are spacious and modern with all the modern facilities you expect in this sort of hotel. Just a short stroll across grass to beach and pier.

PROS: Great views, minute from beach, close to shops, cafes and restaurants, ATM money exchange etc. Fabulous restaurant with a great menu. I was so impressed with the quality of food expecially the duck. I had it three times!!! and it got better every time. So much better than Parisan duck !! The chef was so friendly after senting compliments back to kitchen she came out and spoke to me and past the recipe over !!

I would only stay here in Adelaide as it gives you the taste of Australian beach scene with a small village atmosphere. Staff were friendly and helpful. Terrific inhouse bar with nightlife and music. Good walking track from hotel along beach. Good pool area with deck chairs and service overlooking the ocean.

CONS: A 20minute tram ride to city.

Fantastic food.

My Place: Not quite my place

My Place got good reports on the Lonely Planet, therefor I chose to stay there. No good idea, the place certainly had seen better days....

The dorms were definitely too stuffed with bunks and the kitchen was rather dirty, as were some of the bathrooms.

Breakfast is included, but it's nothing great: some cereals, toast, butter & jam, coffee & tea.

There's a nice balcony though.

The Arab Steed Hotel (and Restaurant): A clean, simple hotel in eastern Adelaide

We didn't actually stay at the Arab Steed, but did enjoy a meal there. The folks who ran the place were very accomodating and friendly. And, I asked to peek at one of their rooms...

Nothing fancy, but they were clean and functional. And, you're in a good location... not right in the center of Adelaide, but only an easy walk away. And, there are several nice little local eateries and such in the immediate area. There's a laundromat right across Hutt Street from the Steed hotel, a good place to get your laundry back into order, especially if you've just come from the Outback.

A nice local place. GREAT FOOD in the dining room/pub. Especially nice schnitzels if you're into the German wonder. :)

The "proprietor" of the Arab Steed is SHAYNE WHITE. Shayne's email addy is shayne@arabsteedhotel.com.au, and his mobile phone number is (08) 0419 032 513

Largs Pier Hotel: An alternative to Glenelg

If you want to get away from the bustle of Glenelg, but still wish to stay right on the ocean, then perhaps take a good look at this hotel.
Built in 1882, its elegance of the bygone era is still evident.
Its only 20 minutes from the Adelaide Airport and the city centre,but is set in a very relaxing area.

The ocean is just across the road, and the restaurants of Semphore are five minutes away.
Its so close and handy to so many places, incluing AMMI stadium, for those who need accomodation for an Aussie rules game.

amble at Hahndorf: winter romantic getaway

We booked here for our wedding anniversary last year. although we live in the adelaide hills, we wanted to experience somewhere close by. We found a little gem. The owners are really lovely and leave you to your own devices. It is totally self contained, and Hahndorf main street is only a quick romantic stroll away.

Beautiful fire yummy australian port,great breaky provisions, music,spa, tranquil gardens, great company. This place was magic. its situated in the Adelaide Hills, and would be absolutely perfect for some "us" time. I would recommend this accomo dation. Very romantic times to be had!!!!

Apartments On The Park: Apartment with a park view

The apartments are on the south side of town, near the parks, quite off centre from the city centre (about 15-20 minutes walk away). Very quiet surroundings.
But as it is off the city centre, the rates are a little cheaper. The apartments are comfortable and comes with everything: stove, microwave, fridge, washing machine and dryer. However, the services at reception is a little wanting.

2005 LATEST: This apartment is no longer under the Majestic Apartments Group, but you can still access their website to search for other apartments offered by the Group.

Shaz & Brett's house.: Best accomodation in town.

I have stayed at this accomodation on countless occasions and have thoroughly enjoyed it every time. The home is perfectly situated, just 10 minutes from the beach, 12 minutes from the city and a 2 hour bike ride up to Mt Lofty and back. The home offers a double bed, big lounge room, internet and two very friendly hosts. The place is always extremely clean and tidy. There is also the added bonus of a personal trainer available in the morning to join you for run and walks!

Great location, very cheap and extremely clean.
