Great place to stay, easy to get to and secure off street parking included ( our wind screen was even washed ! ) Short walk to tram into the city, short walk to many restaurants, you will find something you love. Room was clean and had everything we needed. Staff were very pleasant and helpful, we would definitely stay again.

Great central location close to beach, restaurants, entertainment and trams. A little dated but clean and reasonably priced. Great check-in. However, shower hot water took nearly 10 minutes to come through and, once the cold water was added, alternated between hot and cold. Faulty hairdryer which smelled of burning and then had sparks in the actual hairdryer and from the...

As per other reviews great location and whilst the building is a bit on the older side, the rooms are good, clean and tidy. If you don't mind something a bit older, then this hotel is good value for money and allow you great access to Glenelg restaurants and beach.
