In a very pretty Victorian area with a view of Tabletop mountain. Easy walking distance to a number of good restaurants and several museums and the SA Art gallery

my only slight (very slight!) gripe is that I have been there several times now, but each time I am greeted as if they have never heard from me and asked to fill in a form with all my details again and hand over my ID to be copied. It would be better if they could capture returning guests details just the once.
Lovely rooms, great location in arty, quirky area with nice restaurants and little interesting shops nearby. Company's Gardens, St Georges Cathedral and various museums in walking distance. Safe parking, and breakfast in a beautiful sunny room.

We did not feel really welcome within the house as our en suite was in an adjacent house with a separate entrance. Because of the shape of the room we did not find it cosy or charming. The wall facing our bay window was far from being a nice view. Quite a steep price for what we got. We did not feel like real guests in a guesthouse.
It was quiet and clean. The breakfast was very good.

The staff, Carin and her team are so helpful. They bend over backwards to make you feel at home. I really can recommend it. Good food, lovely location and well run guest house.

Having to leave to fly home.
The well maintained cottage garden. The Colonial style of the house. The friendly welcoming staff. The airy & spacious rooms. The ambiance. The decor. The balcony. The location. The breakfast.

Asked for a double bed, got two twin beds pushed together instead. Too much light in the bedroom at night. Very dim light in the bathroom. Duvet was too small. Wi-fi did not work at all in the room. We had to go to the lobby to use a very slow connection.
Room was clean. OK location, walked about 1km to city center.

Within walking distance of Long Street for shops, restaurants, bars. Lovely building and the honeymoon suite is fantastic.

Dropped a pen in between the beds. It was a bit dusty behind the beds.
The towel warmer was a nice touch. Rooms comfortable & spacious, friendly staff. Had to leave before breakfast and was packed the nicest take away breakfast.
