Travel Blogs from Adelaide
Well to be perfectly honest, the jet lag hit me pretty hard when I first arrived. I was falling asleep at 7am and waking up at 4pm...I know I'm a student but even those hours are a little extreme! Thankfully, I've recovered and started to get out and about. The first thing I've noticed over here is how unprepared the Australians are for cold weather. It's their winter at the moment so the days are averaging at around 10-15 degrees. I find ...
There. We're finally here! Victoria is now officially down under. It has been a long journey. After Mum, Dad and Vincent waved me goodbye at Schiphol and I passed the gates, many calls came in. It were my friends! They were standing outside the gates, we just missed each other. So I found a way to return to them. It was a surprise we could still see each other. One last hug and then I really had to head to the gate and ...

You get carrier bags in supermarkets in Western Australia , Queensland and NSW, but not in Victoria, Tassie and South Australia.
Well last night the jet lag set in and it wasn't pretty. It got me thinking if airline pilots get chronic jet lag or do they just get used to it! I have done a long round the world trip over the last three years, so the longest that I have had to fly was only 12 hours from Auckland to Los Angeles. I was just happy to sleep in a normal bed again and we slept in.

Historical Traveler Reviews Majestic Roof Garden Hotel Adelaide
A nice hotel
We spent 2 non-consecutive nights at this hotel during a recent trip to Australia.
One the first stay, we were provided with an upgraded room since no other rooms were available. The room was very nice, with a great bathroom, nice bed, and a balcony.
On the second stay, we had a standard room, which was OK, although not as nice.
We had breakfast one morning at the restaurant, Culshaws, which offered a very nice buffet (and was included in our rate).
The hotel itself has a very small lobby, but has a nice modern feel similar to the boutique hotels found around the world. The hotel was just opened in 2004, and feels very clean.
We briefly popped up to the roof garden, which seemed like a nice place to relax, although there was no activity up there at the time.
Location is decent, just a block from the Rundle Mall and lots of stores and restaurants. However, it was a 20-minute walk to get to Chinatown or the Central Market, which is no problem in nice weather.
Beuatiful hotel in the heart of Adelaide
We spent one night at the Majestic Roof Garden on our honeymoon before going to Kangaroo Island and found the hotel really nice.
The location is great, in Adelaide's heart a few steps from Rundle Mall.
The modern lobby is elegant and every detail is perfect.
The room with its king-size bed was large and clean, the bathroom spacious, the shower cosy.
Unfortunately the room view was on a parking.
The morning we had a delicious breakfast in the restaurant and due to the nice weather conditions, the glass doors were opened and we were simply having our tea and coffee on the street, great!
At the last floor there is a little gym and the roof garden, nice and unusual.
All the staff was very friendly and professional.
We will certainly come back to this hotel.
Great location very central
If its central adelaide you want you've got it here, just round the corner from great restaurant and bars, and a short stroll to the shopping areas. The rooms are clean spacious and trendy. The view at the front and rear of the hotel is poor unless you like car parks, but thats what you get for being central i suppose. The bathroom is fun, with the doors that open so you can sit in the bath and watch tv. We stayed for 3 days which included australia beating uruguay at the football, so no matter how many panes of glass we would still be able to hear the aussies celebrate. The only dissapointing thing about the hotel was the roof garden, it wasn't really majestic and was very small and barely a garden.
Wished I could have stayed longer...
I spent one night at this hotel in October, finishing a long business trip, before transitting to Sydney to fly home. I arrived in Adelaide mid evening, and was immediately struck by how empty the streets were and how nothing at all seemed to be going on. On pulling up at the hotel, I was therefore very pleasantly surprised by the buzzy atmosphere with lots of people enjoying an evening drink in the bar - nothing overly loud, just people having a good time.
My room was immaculate with a full size tub and seperate shower. I had a small balcony and the concierge asked me if I'd like them to bring up a garden chair and table, even though I was only staying one night.
Room service arrived exactly on time, although the breakfast wasn't cheap for what it was. All in all a thoroughly professional and pleasant place and I felt as if they made just as much effort with me as they did for people staying longer.
Not Ready To Go Just Yet!!!
Stayed for one night, wished it could have been a week longer. The room was very clean, spacious and modern. Although being on Frome Street and close to Rundle Street the room was very quiet inside. The bathroom is perfect for a prince and his princess and the breakfast is worth getting up for.. I will be back and recomend it as a number 1 place to stay in Adelaide.....10/10
A great hotel, in a great location, in a lovely city.
Rooms were excellent and so were the staff.
Avoid rooms near lifts, as they can be noisy.
Good shops and resturants within easy walking distance.
Modern, Beautiful Hotel, Great Location
Fantastic hotel in a great location. The rooms are spacious, modern, and very sleek. Highly recommended. Definitely try and book through an online discounter, as the rack rates are absurdly high.
Totally modern, awesome location
Stayed there for 2 nights on our honeymoon. The hotel is still fairly new (about 1 yr old?) and all the rooms and facilities are in great shape. Reminds me of a modern, boutique hotel in the U.S, similar to the W.
I would recommend spending a bit more (about $70 AUD more) and getting the King Suite with a jacuzzi. Suite has a small balcony overlooking the city and the Adelaide Hills as well as a modern kitchen with full cooking facilities.
Popular Rundle Mall is literally around the corner with many shops and restaurants readily accessible.
Staff was also very friendly and helpful.
A fantastic location
The majestic roof garden is in the perfect location near two cinemas and great restaurants. Not to mention it is easy walking distance to the museum and art gallery.
The rooms are good. They don't heat up as quickly as I would like and the hot water doesn't fill up the bath, but apart from that it is an excellent hotel.
As a hotel it is above average but when combined with its location, it is excellent. We stay there whenever we go to Adelaide.
Excellent, Very ZEN
Lovely Hotel, Nice staf and very new. Also got a free upgrade.
