The staff were so quietly efficient, providing everything I needed without asking, and organising for a late coffee and meal to my room. Everything was just right - the staff seemed to get everything sorted without being too visible. Loved the breakfasts (banana pancakes -Yay!), including...

The king bed is two singles pushed together without a mattress topper, so you do sink in the bottom. No shower caps provided, outdated tv, have to pay room service with cash on the spot. Need a $200 deposit even if you've already paid for the whole room and I would never stay in this hotel again. It's just not...

Very comfortable rooms, very quiet and perfectly located for our meetings around Adelaide. A short walk to the best Adelaide has to offer with pubs, clubs and a convenience store a short stroll away.

Thank you for your review of your recent stay with us at Adelaide Rockford. I was sorry to hear there were elements of your stay which resulted in sleep deprivation due to external noise. Noise is a difficult beast to tackle – the impact on an individual’s hearing is varied and determining the source equally challenging. It is unfortunate we...

Great spot. Walking distance to rundle mall. Right on the Main Street with heaps of pubs. Gets very busy with the young crowd on a weekend but we couldn't hear much noise.

We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights in September and would recommend it for its friendly service and good restaurant, serving breakfast and evening dinner. The rooms were spacious , clean and comfortable . There is also a bar open in the evenings and a good sized lounge area.
