Adelaide, Australia
Reviewed 20 March 2016

We stayed at the Chifley overnight. It is a hotel that is really starting to show it's age. It is handy to the south parklands. If you are on foot it is a bit of a hike into Adelaide CBD. The positive is that it has parking included, whereas a lot of CBD hotels charge between $20 and $30 for...

Dear wow49 Thank you for reviewing your recent stay and providing valued feedback. I have shared your comments with the hotel team. The free parking is certainly a major draw for many of our guest's as you mention the cost's over several days can mount up otherwise. We are looking into some upgrades in the public areas of the property...

This is a convenient place for easy access to everything in Adelaide. Only downside would be the lack of a coffee shop nearby. Restaurant in the hotel is Thai so good if you like that, not so good for breakfast. But , amenities are clean and rooms offer movie channels and the front desk is 24hr so you can usually...

We arrives here and straight away noticed that it was a little outdated. Staff were very courteous and friendly. The lift up to our room was just crazy and rattled severely when it stopped. The hallway to our room made me wonder what we had got ourselves into as the carpet was terrible and the walls were in need of...

The Chifley represented good value, a twenty minute walk to the Fringe. But bless it, it is showing its age. There was dust on the base of the table, a broken towel rail, no free WiFi and no biscuits for the tea! The minibar was not restocked ... it was pretty poorly stocked ,,, with no wine! In South Australia,...

Like other reviewers we have stayed at the Chifley many times before and the very fact that we keep going back speaks for itself. Yes it is older and could do with a refurb. Probably because it is old, the rooms are very spacious, something I don't find often in more fancy hotels. The staff are friendly and helpful, the...

I recommend this hotel - never, ever stay there The lobby smelled like a dingy stinky bar from the 90's The lift was a near-death experience The rooms were ordinary at best Oh, and the balcony which guests and children can walk all the way around the hotel and look in your room - that was a charm...

Dear 431craigl We are sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us. Unfortunately, the age and design of the building does not include private balconies, a feature we agree would be lovely but as we don't have them we don't advertise as such. The lift is also older and constantly under review, however at this stage there are no...

We stayed in the Junior Suite for 3 nights (w/end stay). Located on the 4th floor, we were very pleasantly suprised to find the Junior Suite comprised of 2 seperate living quarters giving complete privacy. Large, amply furnished rooms, lots of relaxation space with comfortable lounges and chairs. Amenities included an iron and ironing board, kettle, toaster, hairdryer, large TV...

Dear susanrQ5488BR Thanks for the feedback and your lovely comments which have been shared with the hotel team.

As I booked 4 Rooms for 2 nights I found that in my opinion that the Chifley was not value for money compared to other properties in the way of rooms especially the bathroom facilities on the other hand the Restaurant and bar looked okay, if there is a closer venue to stay at next year I would choose it

Good local close to race track and plenty of good restraints close by to enjoy a good meal. Hotel is a bit dated needs to be bought up to date by replacing the carpet and painting the rooms.Lift needs to be serviced.
