As a grand private residence converted to motel style accommodation The Princes Lodge Motel is a unique place to stay. We offer clean and comfortable rooms for single travellers, couples and families. All room rates include a modest buffet style continental breakfast in the dining room and we have space to park vehicles free of charge. We are only 2 kilometres from the CBD with many transport options to get you there including the free commuter bus that leaves from a stop only 300 meters from the front door. If you choose to walk you will pass historic homes and can take in the vista of the city and Lake Torrens that the elevation of North Adelaide offers.The main house is two stories accessed by an impressive staircase rising from reception. A balcony on the first floor has views across parklands to the Adelaide Hills. Our guest lounge offers a place to relax with a good book or one of our many magazines. During summer our rose garden is in bloom and our rear garden offers a shady spot to relax.Your Hosts David and Andrew look forward to welcoming you when you are next in Adelaide.

Stayed here for the night only. Outside they have a cool phone system that calls the management directly, that if they are out of sight in the reception you can always get hold of them! The bathroom was separate to the room. Bit uncomfortable having to walk across the corridor

Was expecting better, but I think previous reviewers have nailed it. This is an old building, to my eye poorly maintained, could do with a deep clean in the rooms and adjustments to the doors so they fit! This is not character this is poor maintenance and a lack of

This hotel is old but clean. Bathrooms are small. We stayed on the second floor in the main hotel. You either have a bathroom in your room or across the hallway, so make sure to ask. Great access to the free bus service into the city. Good Continental breakfast. Close walking

I booked this motel last minute. It wasn’t bad at all, the motel is old but I think they’re trying to renew the rooms because the bed and the bedside table are in a pretty new style. The room was warm enough thanks to the heater. The room was quite clean, and the receptionist

As Juden69 has advised the best option to get to our Motel from the airport is a Taxi which will cost approx. $30 in busy times and less out of peak. Once here there is the free city connector service 98A and 98C is approx. 300 metres from our door or other bus services a little further away on O'Connell street which has restaurants cafes bars and supermarket.

Sorry for the delayed response. There is a free shuttle service that operates between 9am and 6pm each day from the Franklin Street Bus Station. Adelaide Metro 98A or 98C alight at Tynte Street Stop 6 then walk around the corner 200 m to us. We do not offer airport transfers. Metro buses to city then to North Adelaide or a taxi is the best option.
