I read other people's reviews and chose to stay here, and unfortunately paid all up front before I saw the room. This place was not designed to be guest accomodation, and in my tiny room, they had turned a cupboard into a shower. You had to literally close the door behind you and this became one of the shower "walls". I have travelled much and have seen some very interesting things (Africa, South East Asia) but I wasn't expecting to find in an Australian accomodation, jam jar lids, lipstick stains smeared all over the bed, wrappers and contents of confectionary in the bedside table drawers, and a nail head on the floor. I complained to the main reception, but they shrugged and said 'sorry'. I went to Cole's and bought cleaning supplies myself and banned the 'housekeeper' from entering the room for the duration of the stay.
The good thing about this place is that it's quiet and that it has free Wi-fi. I left and stayed at the YHA (cleaner, more comfortable, bigger rooms) and paid for Wi-fi and it worked out much better than staying at Wright Lodge.
I don't know if the owners had changed since other people's reviews, but I was very disappointed with this place and would highly recommend to others NOT to stay here. I realise Adelaide accomodation is expensive, but there are better options e.g. YHA.
If you ARE staying here, I would ask the reception when you're booking (ring them) for the door lock code. The reception is patchily manned and I found myself locked out at 4pm on my first day, with nobody at the reception or otherwise. I went for a walk and as it was getting cold, I rang several numbers on my cellphone (paying overseas rates) until I found someone who could give me the door code. Once again, the 'sorry I forgot to tell you'... Also, please just take a look at the room before you pay them anything. I wish I had.
