A trip with famiy and friends

35amali 07/04/2021 TripAdvisor review

The rooms in this hotel is very spacious and clean. We enjoyed our stay. The only problem in staying in this hotel is that there is no parking unless you book the limited parking available in the hotel which is in my opinion costly.

Jennifer R 17/03/2021 TripAdvisor review

A lovely hotel which was very central to the CBD. Spacious rooms and reasonably quite considering the location in the "party" district. Check in was efficient and we were allowed into our room early and breakfast had a good variety. Staff were very helpful

Nice but lacking

TripAdvisor rating 3.0/5

orien2006 07/03/2021 TripAdvisor review

Although this hotel stay was pleasant and quiet, it was lacking in a number of areas 1. Recognition of status as a Diamond member was almost non existent. I was given an upgraded room but it was not really what I would consider an upgrade given the room location 2. Breakfast was just poor. You could order a plate of hot food e.g bacon, scrambled eggs (not choice of type), a sausage and a hash brown with a slice of toast. There was no other choice for hot food and if you wanted a Barista coffee you paid extra along with other items. Not really up to normal Novotel standards

Refreshed accommodation and great service

I have stayed at the Rockford many times over the years. I recently had to stay for some self quarantine for travel for business. Their renovation has been completed so the ambiance and facilities have been improved. Their great service and attitude remains the reason that I keep coming back.

Nice Hotel, great service

Sean D Business - 06/02/2021 TripAdvisor review

The hotel has been recently refurbished and is adequate for the needs of a business traveller. It it is relatively small hotel but very clean and friendly staff. Located next to the university and near a lot of restaurants and cafes.

Good Location but poor service.

richardsU7600EO Business - 25/01/2021 TripAdvisor review

Location was great. However parking was limited. I was told I needed to book but there was no option to book on Limited restaurant options and no room service which staying for 8 nights was frustrating. The room keys are hyper sensitive and if placed near your phone lose they memory and need to be reprogrammed. The breakfast offer was pretty average and the coffee was undrinkable. It was disappointing that the hotel didn't recognise my Accor loyalty when others who were non Accor members got room upgrades and I didn't? It felt like the hotel wasn't an Accor hotel and has a confused identity

Spacious rooms

First hotel stay since Covid. As expected, hand sanitizers at lobby and lift doors. Lifts limited to a maximum of 2 and as there was only one lift, may be a long wait if the hotel is full. Room was spacious. However I found the shower facilities limited as only a fixed shower head was installed. Prefer shower heads that can be held and directed when needed. A fixed shower is very restrictive. Great service from staff in restaurant. Due to Covid, instead of self serve, staff took your order and brought it to you. Very helpful in meeting our requests for fried eggs instead of the scrambled eggs on order. Limited number of parking spaces. Suggest pre-booking a spot if you are driving.

Staff were very friendly and helpful in particular the bartender/waiter always made you feel welcome and special ,disappointed the roof top refurbishment is still not complete as this will take the property to 5 star rating

Great hotel and staff but located in the Kings Cross of Adelaide

jasonC8350GT 20/11/2020 TripAdvisor review

The hotel and staff were great. However we stayed in the 1 bedroom suites down the end and even with the double glazing, separating glass wall and bedroom door the bass from nighclubs vibrated the room till 2am. Its a great central location, easy to walk to trams, botanic gardens and the mall. However, Id ask for a higher room or one close to the corner, great for adults but the surrounding shops and their store fronts wouldn't be ideal for kids.

This is a nice hotel to stay at

I think this place is a bit under-rated. It has been through some renovations, but even through this has always had clean room, helpful staff and options available for guests. It is well located, has parking and very comfortable.

The mattress was so comfortable, best night sleep, i've had for sometime. Location of the hotel is quite central. Staff a polite and friendly. Breakfast a little too limiting on a package, but nice and fresh.

Well located, fresh clean premises, happy & helpful staff. Close to transport but also able to walk & enjoy sights.

Noisy workmen

Customer review rating 2.0/5

Ellen Business - 05/03/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

The staff were great however very early in the morning I was awoken by deliveries for the construction, which went all day. This was not too bad but then at 5:30am they started on the very noisy power tools. I asked the reception about this and they requested the workmen to stop using power tools. They did this and went back to just moving stuff around until 6:00am when they restarted the grinders etc. and did not stop! I ended up tired, getting sick and needing to leave and go home a day early. I don't think that you should be putting guests into the rooms next to the construction site.

Welcoming staff

I have stayed numerous times at the Rockford and have always had a satisfactory stay. The rooms are comfortable and the staff are very welcoming. The restaurant is reasonable with a limited dinner menu but usually well p[repared. Breakfast is just average.

Dear Ian, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. We hope to welcome you back to our hotel very soon. Sincerely, Marion Tuck Adelaide Rockford

Kelly Business - 17/02/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Checkedin and no acknowledgement by name. it is the little things that makes a difference. Was surprised as a Diamond member to not receive anything in my room complimentary except the welcome drink on arrival. There was no water in my room. The room was pleasant enough was surpised to see the Bathroom products on offer. No ear cleaners etc. Just hand soap on the walls. The mini bar was very subpar. I had multiple waters and coke in there. One Beer. No wine at all. The bar staff were slow there was only one person on the bar. Jackson seemed to be working constantly. Breakfast was ok not the best for a Novotel that i have seen however was adequate. I did not eat dinner so can not comment on that there is noise as they are renovating, nothing was mentioned on the website regarding that or that the pool is closed.

Hotel is ideally located for me and the stay is always a pleasant one!
