            The room was very clean and quite stylish in a modest way. Good tv, aircon and minibar. Staff were helpful and respectful.

            The bed was a bit lumpy.

            Reception staff were very welcoming. Was very surprised at the large size of the room and quality, felt quite luxurious. Booked on internet and was excellent value.

            The ipad provided in the room was a bonus as it was always connected and we could use it to check up on restaurants, maps, etc. Rockford must b one of the first few hotels in the world to provide this. In addition the free wireless internet throughout the hotel provided much convenience for our own devices ie ipad n I phones. Most of the staff, front desk, restaurant and housekeeping appear to be well trained and very polite and friendly. I would recommend this hotel to all friends. The only complaint I have is that the cleaning of the room was somewhat erratic and on some days it was very clean but seemed to have been done in a hurry on others (My husband and I stayed 8 nights)

            The staff were very friendly and always willing to help. We had issues with a car rental and one of the staff members called around until she found us a replacement rental car for our stay. The room was always clean and the bed was extremely comfortable. I highly recommend the Rockford hotel.

            we found the convenience of walking to the market and shopping in the mall exellent

            maybe the noise from night clubs. also it is in the dodgy end of town as in strip clubs e. t. c..

          • Older travelers
            7.4

            The bed was extremely comfortable and the room clean

            The resturant Spice Market was a disappointment for the prices charged for the menu. It was extremely slow with on waiter who forgot that we were there. It took 3 hours to finish from entre to dessert. Forgot to bring my wine and took two reminders, forgot to bring the menu dessert selection. We had to go to the waiter at the bar to make our order after waiting more than thirty minutes to get the menu. The prawn dish was definanetly not worth the 34.00 dollars charged!!! Disappointment all round despite the discount offered in the end by the manager. Needs significant improvement for a 41/2 staff hotel.

            staff were very friendly and i was upgraded on arrival. Good location, wasn't noisy (it was a thursday night) and good value for money. Didnt try breakfast. Parking availble on site for extra cost

            1.The swimming pool was quite good and we used it a lot during our holidays.2.The room was spacious and the beds were big.3.Hotel staffs were friendly and helpful.4.Less than 5mins walking to tram or bus stops to city and hahndorf and Ayers House.5.The free breakfast buffet was wonderful.

            1.My cellphone can hardly have signals to make an international call or surf on the Internet.

            Room was fabulous - spacious, comfortable, clean, good facilities and the hotel was easy to find. Would stay there again.

            Can be a little noisy at night given the location but fine. Location can get a little 'seedy' late at night on a weekend but inside hotel very comfortable.

            loved the pulp bar. glad there was a nice place to go and chillout and have a drink without having to leave the hotel

            the bed was a little uncomfortable. queen bed made up with 2 single beds not the most comfy thing.

          • Couple

            Very friendly staff. beautiful room (free upgrade), everything in walking distance, ie. rundle mall, casino, tram to beach

            the cleaning staff missed a few things, but fixed it with one phone call.

            Car parking facility was inadequate I.E. we had pre booked a spot and on two consecutive nights all spaces were taken. The toilets in the room did not flush properly. The sliding door on the balcony was in poor condition.

            The Rockford was close to many city attractions including Festival Theatre which was our destination for the evening. We were thrilled with the room, very modern! Staff were friendly and great to deal with. Thanks would stay here again for sure!

            I thought the Rockford Adelaide was modern and mostly clean. The bathroom was great, loved the big tub. I think it's great the wifi is free, and also appreciated the luggage storage. Location was good, short walk to Rundle Mall with good public transport connections nearby.

            It was mostly clean - the sheets were clean, but not pressed and the bed wasn't made very well. But otherwise great!
