Went to the Chrysler bar on a Sunday night to hot to cook. Two of us had the Cuban sandwich absolutely no complains, great flavours, decent serving size and fast service. The big man had the BBQ burger delicious! Nice meat, juicy and great size as well. Had a bad meal once in the dining area but the bar restored...

Had lunch here recently after many years of driving past. The staff were friendly and efficient, and the dining area was comfortable with plenty of space between tables. The menu was more than adequate, as was the wine list. The food was delicious: I had a lamb dish which was cooked to perfection and was surprisingly tender. I shall definitely...

I went with a couple of friends for a drink and some lunch.The hotel itself is a very clean place. If you are a sports person it has all the sports on Rv that you want. The day I went there it must have been a title fight so they had a huge television just for the event with lounges...

Stayed in the motel for almost two weeks while in Adelaide. Pro's- Hotel has been refurbished and is very modern, ate in the bistro every night and the meals were absolutely spot on, the chef is a legend. Bar staff were polite. Con's- Internet (wifi) crapped itself for two days which was quite inconvenient as I needed it for business...

The room was pretty clean except for some dust on the shelving. Bathroom and sheets impeccable. Food on the first night at the bistro was great, the next time we went it was not so enjoyable. Room very small, but staff saw that I was drinking wine in the room, and left me a proper wine glass...Big brownie points! All...

I went and saw a band in the Crysler bar, the service was great, the beer was fresh and cold. The atmosphere was great too. Also the beer garden was a nice set up. Access to TAB and sports coverage on TVs was good too.

A Wake was arranged at very short notice at the suburban hotel. The party of grieving relatives and friends had a room to ourselves. The food platters, presented by the friendly staff members, were well presented and delicious. Easy parking in front of the room we were allocated was a bonus due to heavy late afternoon traffic on South Road.

The spa room is well kitted out with a large two person spa and kind sized bed. The room is clean and visually pleasing. Check in service is friendly and welcoming, they offered us late check out as we arrived later at night which is thoughtful. If staying on a weekend be aware that it is quite busy with other...

Overall not a bad stay, only negative and a pet hate was that our meal in the bistro whilst eating our entre the main meals arrived. When returned to our table the bulk of the food was luke warm, not a good reflection on the restaurant.
