    Easy arrival process but room was less than expected. I did not spend any time in the hotel except for sleep and shower. Room was serviced each day but was poorly laid out. Several minor maintenance items appear to have been overlooked for some time.

The food in the Pub is of a decent standard and the bonus of 25% off all food and drink was a very generous bonus We will certainly use this venue when we come back to Adelaide and have no hesitation in a reccommendation

    Thank you for your review. Sorry to hear that you had such an unpleasant stay. Moving forward we have hopefully managed the noise level and also educate all guests on the importance of using the exhaust fans in the rooms (otherwise yes the fire alarms go off). Thanks again

    The 1st problem we encountered with this hotel was there aren't enough carparks, 4 of them were taken up by rubbish bins, which did not help. After finding a make-shift car park we proceeded into the hotel carrying luggage. A staff member came out of a passcoded room, looked at us and walked the other way. There is no clear reception so we ended up walking into the bistro looking for a place to check in. The same staff member then took us back to the locked door he just walked out of. This really irked me. He could have just pointed us in the right direction when he 1st saw us. We were told by staying in the hotel we would get 25% our bill in the bistro, which we thought was great value for money. The staff at dinner service were average, at best. However, it was the breakfast staff member that was very rude and unwelcoming on placing a breakfast order. They didn't seem to want to be there. Not hospitable at all.

    Thanks for your review. Sorry to hear that it wasn't a pleasant stay. We will look into the signage of our Reception Area so it may be more clear to our guests. Brighton is a very busy area with little car parking and yes we have to forgo a few spots so we are able to have bins on site. We pride ourselves on our high service and customer standards and are sorry to hear that we have not followed through and hopefully moving forward we can improve. Thanks
