We stayed here for 9 nights recently and while the rooms were clean they are quite basic. The hotel has no view and though fairly close to shops and restaurants, has very few facilities for the holiday maker. The most frustrating thing is that the car parks for guests are not monitored and we had to park our car way...

Great area for access to Adelaide. 3 food outlets on site including popular buffet which needs to be booked particularly for dinner. Room comfortable but all rooms on 1st floor and stair access only. Close to beach and Jetty road tourist area. Direct tram to CBD if needed. No power point at fixed desk and Hotel did not supply extension...

Arrived late in looking for a room, the evening manager was very helpful and accommodating. Room was clean and a decent size, bathroom was clean. Bed was comfortable. Easy access to walk along the front in the morning

We stayed here in March 2016 prior to taking a flight interstate. Free parking is always a plus when booking accommodation. The 'All you can eat Buffet' was excellent and we even got discount because we were guests of the Hotel accommodation. The Hotel itself is nicely set out and a great place to have a few quiet drinks and...

This is one of the 'all you can eat' smorgasbord restaurants and it has one of the best selections I have seen for the price. While it is definitely family dining rather than a posh night out, the food was excellent. The only thing I didn't see was an 'assemble your own burger' for the kids. We left groaning and...

Haven't been for a long time and wish I didn't go back This place is just a feeding trough that is over priced and over rated In my opinion the food is sub standard and way over cooked The cost well way over the top for a feeding trough There are plenty of other good restaurants in the Glenelg area...

Good range of food choices but that's it. 1-line up outside in the cold for 30 minutes to get in 2-noisy 3-uncomfortable seats 4-seafood still frozen (prawns + mussels) 5-too many children not supervised at buffet Make sure you're hungry to eat your money's worth!

Buffet was great albeit a bit pricey. Plenty of variety. The Asian food was good the Lamb Shanks were amazing. Left full as a goog. They could do more to entertain the kids. Overall a pleasant experience.

When we first visited Glenelg at the start of our trip around SA we stayed elsewhere, but after walking past the hotel we decided we stay there on our return. We found the 3 dining sections well patronised. The food was plentiful even the entree. The only drawback was the fact we had to lug our luggage up and down...

Lunch buffet was very different to most places with a great selection to cater for all tastes. Lot of noise from the adjoining bar area. Knowledgeable, friendly staff. Dine early for lunch as a lot of "oldies" like several refills! (I am an "oldie" but like to take my time.) Dessert almost a desert by the time we looked which...
