Fire Station Inn

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We stayed here while visiting family in the area. The fire engine and all the many related items entertained our 3 year old grandson. He loved all the small trucks and the books and puzzles. The kitchen was well appointed but missing an oven. The bathroom was large and the spa tub was a nice indulgence. We found there to be a lot of noise from the street. You could hear everyone who walked by. The wifi was very spotty and you can not count on being able to take care of any business online. The location in North Adelaide was great with quick access to many restaurants and shops.

A themed stay that is a true old fire truck. Located near a reasonable area of restaurants for good breakfast and lunch. Also located next to primary school making parking a challenge if arriving after 5pm. Just look a little further and observe restrictions. Taxi rank is at corner of Tynte St 50 metres away. Warning: directly under flight path for the large 0600 hour planes. Heaviest sleepers waken for the painful 45minutes to 1hour of continuous loud planes. Not good. The curtains allow too much light in the room. Spa is a 1980's style triangular spa bath with gold look trims. Need updating. Photos on web are quite accurate. Easy wheelchair access into building. Tight challenge to navigate around truck. Shower is in spa, so unless you can lift leg above knee height, you will find access difficult. Overall, staff friendly. Key is to be picked up offsite.

What could be more fun than to sleep in a beautifully decorated, super colorful firehouse complete with antique fire engine.?! Red, my favorite color is everywhere, but it all works wonderfully. The bed is huge, and very comfortable as it faces the big old fire truck. The kitchen is fully furnished (red ceramic cookware, of course), and there are TWO bathrooms which are quite helpful with a 5AM pickup for the airport. The sitting area faces a flat screen TV but all the fun fire themed furnishings are entertainment enough. Many good restaurants are in the same 2-3 block area. I wish we'd had more time here.

Thank you very much to Ms. Regina who welcome us and support in our staying as special guests. We had a wonderful Christmas in an accommodation which gave us the opportunity to feel the enchanting sense of the past Australian heritage together with the excitement of our children who could play with a real fire fighter truck. Not to mention the sheer bliss we had a at the end of our hectic days relaxing in a real jacuzzi! The location is near to the centre but in a very quite precinct. We were there on Christmas time when unfortunately many attractions were closed but we took advantage of the precious advice of Ms. Regina and we had a wonderful time in Adelaide.

My 6 year old was overwhelmed with excitement. He loved every moment playing on the fire truck and exploring all the fire truck themed things. I did not think he would want to leave. It was a great location. It had everything we needed and was comfortable. A little more expensive than other stays we have done this year but understand that was the location. For us adults it felt like we escaped too and could have been in a different state or country even though we were ten minutes from home!

We have enjoyed our quality time romantic and in the spa. Coming in the room already have heating on, compliments of sparkling wine for us, especially for my partner birthday. Will definitely be back! We stayed at the loggia.

Accommodation finished to a very high standard, great attention to detail and was the perfect birthday gift for a very special firefighter! Whilst we could have easily spent the entire time at the Fire Station Inn, the location was great and called for a wander. Was a short distance to some local North Adelaide bars and restaurants then a pleasant walk on into the City. A quick meander around the winter wonderland village before settling on a well deserved drink at Maybe Mae's. A perfect night ending back at the Fire Station Inn with a nightcap and a good nights sleep. Great accommodation for those wanting something special and certainly not run of the mill!

We stayed here the night of our 15th year wedding anniversary. We had also stayed here on our wedding night. This place is excellent with its fully appointed kitchen, King size bed and spa bath. Would highly recommend this place for anyone that wants to have a special night out with that special someone.

We visited Fire Station Inn for a Cricket World Cup match and just loved the experience. We stayed for three nights and it was a very expensive stay but I think almost everything was booked out because of World Cup and hence high prices. They were great and helped us in every possible way and accommodation itself is wonderful.

My wife and I stayed in the fire engine suite on the basis of the reviews on this site, but were severely disappointed. Road noise from Tynte street comes straight in through the windows, so we were rudely awoken at 7am and could not get back to sleep. We opted for the full english breakfast at $30pp, but rather than breakfast in bed, we were left with four eggs, two tomatoes, and some cheap supermarket bacon to cook for ourselves. Wifi is an extra $30 per night - outrageous! The fire engine itself is cool and my wife and I took photos wearing the fireman costume, but overall it was a bad experience.
