I wanted a nice warm clean comfortable room for the night and that's what we got. A little noisy in the middle of the night at the front of the hotel. Can't comment on the restaurant as we didn't at there, lots of nice cafes nearby and close to the Torrens and a lovely walk along the banks. Will use this hotel again.
My husband and I were on a road trip from Melbourne with our daughters (ages 25 and 29). We booked a two bedroom apartment, which was spacious, comfortable and nicely decorated. The rooms had good natural light and were quiet. The courtyard that the apartments face is lovely.
We had an issue with the clothes dryer that was easily and cheerfully resolved by the staff. They also stopped by to fill a salt shaker for us when we wanted to cook dinner in.
the location is great- we are walkers and enjoyed the walk to the museums. We also spent a day exploring Hahndorf and the McLaren Valley.
We would definitely stay at the Majestic Old Lion again!
This apartment hotel is well located in the heart of North Adelaide. Within 2 a minute walk are shops, restaurants and transport to Adelaide CBD (which is a a pleasant 15 min stroll away).
Our studio apartment was spacious with a nice comfortable king sized bed. Pillows and bedding were good quality. Bathroom whilst a little dated was clean.
A few quibbles however made this 3 out of 5 instead of 4.
On our second day after returning from an event our room had not been serviced. Not a big issue but of course we were only issued with 2 towels for our 2 days stay so after a evening and morning shower these were due for a a change over. We called reception to discover our rate did not include daily servicing. Not a big issue and they provided us with some extra towels. Reviewing our booking with Expedia this was not flagged, and if you aren't going to service the room how about a couple of sets of towels.
Checking in wasn't very easy either. On booking I noticed we were asked to check in at their other property in North Adelaide. When I arrived there they said I could have checked in from the Tynte Street property after all. I asked about car parking and was told to drive up and dial key pad. Parking was tricky and had to get a remote control from a safe. It was only after calling that this was sorted out. Given how tricky it was to actually find the car park some instructions would have helped a lot as had to work it out myself.
We Had Not Read The Fineprint ......checkin By 6.30 Unless Alternative Arrangements Made.We Were Late And A Most Gracious Lady Angela Greeted Us. Everything Was Perfect .... We Booked In For Two Nights In A Fortnights Time. We Are Frequent Visitors To Adelaide And Have Tried Many Other Hotels/motels/apartments. The Staff, Comfort, Cleanliness, Location Makes It Perfect For Us.
One of five bridges over the Torrens River will take you to North Adelaide, a predominantly residential area of Adelaide. Here you will find well-preserved Victorian and Edwardian architecture featuring bluestone, sandstone, and lace ironwork. The wide boulevards of O'Connell and Melbourne streets are a hub of restaurants, cafes, bistros, pubs, specialty shops, galleries, and boutiques.
