Family Dream Down under

The facility was very convenient, easily accessed, with comfortable beds, good bathrooms, excellent AC. Pool was great, but hot tub was not working.The internet service was dreadfully slow and locked up frequently, and television was very limited, with frequent fades and marked difficulty finding channels, even to watch the Ausie Open or local weather reports. The toilet was not cleaned and trash wasn't removed. Request for evaluation of television service did not help.

The beaches south of the city, especially Moana and Port Noaralunga are spectacular, while the touted Glen Elg was only so so.

Good place to stay

This hotel is fairly priced for its location. We don't mind walking, as it is most convenient to go around in Adelaide). It is a 30-minute walk from the convention center and you pass many restaurants on the way, which is useful in the evening when coming back. Most places to eat are 10 to 15 minutes away (by foot), and allows you to digest returning to your room. Parking is free, so when you want to take a ride to the nearby attractions, you don't break the bank for parking the car overnight. The rooms are okay. This hotel is not new, there are scratches here and there, but we wanted a clean and quiet place to sleep in, and this is what we got. The staff is friendly, but we didn't have anything extraordinary to ask them. We stayed there for 4 nights, and saved money by staying there instead of the pricier downtown hotels.

The hotel location (on West and South Terrace) makes it really easy to be on the main roads to get outside the city.

Great Accommodation - Helpful Staff

Front Desk staff very knowledgeable and helpful. Quiet location and short taxi hop to Airport. 5 minute walk to free tram line that travels the center of the CBD.

Rydges South Terrace

This hotel is overlooking a beatiful park. However, the walk to the tram to get downtown is pretty but fairly long. The room is clean and the bed is comfortable. I would recommend this one. very good for the price.
