Where members choose to stay:)

Here are a couple of links for accommodation etc close to the casino if that is of any help to members

Will add as we go along :)

Casino

Quest Serviced Apartments

Thanks viv for the following suggestion :thumbup::thumbup:


If people are looking for serviced apartments as opposed to hotels, there are 5 Quest Serviced apartments located in the Adelaide CBD.
http://www.questapartments.com.au/Locations.aspx
Quest on King William is close to Rundle Mall and therefore the casino, close to the Tramline and is currently showing those dates at $238 a night for a 2 bedroom apartment. I cant comment on how good it is because Ive never stayed there.

Finding something along the Tramline is helpful in terms of getting around. If you stay on the outskirts of the CBD but are on the tram line, the tram will take you straight to the casino. Quest on Sturt is further out but is also on the tramline so will take you directly into Rundle Mall and the Casino.


Other Accommodation and travel ideas

Many thanks onecanonlyhope :) :thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:


Here is the TripAdvisor link for Adelaide with accommodation reviews, restaurant reviews etc.

Staying at Glenelg may be an option for those coming over for the lottos meet. It is a 40 minute tram ride from Glenelg to Adelaide. Here is a website that might be useful.

If you decide to stay at Glenelg, here is the link to the tram timetable from Glenelg to the Entertainment Centre and vice versa. If the lunch is held at the Adelaide Casino you will need to get off at the Adelaide Railway Station stop. See the timetable for further information. Timetables can be found on the RHS of the page.

Ashlan has suggested Glenelg :) :thumbup::thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:

As a Glenelg girl - I would suggest Glenelg as it would be great for those coming from intersate . Actually it's a 25 min tram ride to the city not 40 minutes (unless you are staying at the entertainment centre .

The Haven on Adelphi Tce at Glenelg could be a good option It has conference rooms if they are free and motel units.
It is an easy walk to Jetty Rd, the beach and the tram stop but becasue it is not right in the center of Glenelg it is a little bit cheaper.
There are lots of other different price accomodations within walking distance- everything from five star to back packers

Shops and 50 plus resturants are also within walking distance . There isthe Buffalo sailing ship themed resturant across the road in the river and also an All You Can eat resturant next door

10 minutes from the airport so a cheap taxi ride - there is a bus J1 as well

It also has a resturant

Jayneu has suggested :thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:

THE SEBEL PLAYFORD ADELAIDE

Re the Adelaide Casino buffet. I haven't been to the casino for years, so cannot comment on the food. When the Adelaide Casino opened decades ago it used to be quite a classy place, but I think it is a bit 'tired' now. I could be wrong. Other SA lottoers probably know more about the place than me. I visited the casino (not to eat a meal) about 10 years ago and wasn't impressed, so I didn't return, but who knows, things might have improved and the casino may be good now. Other SA lottoers may be able to shed more light on it than me. Not wanting to sound like a negative Nelly as the place might be fine nowadays. I'm just commenting on my experience in the distant past which may not reflect the current situation at the casino. It might be nice in there now. :)

Unfortunately I cannot offer suggestions on other places because I have so many damn food restrictions that I probably won't be able to eat anything regardless of where we go lol! That doesn't worry me though. I'd just be happy to catch up with everyone if I can go and am not really concerned about the food factor. My food restrictions put me in the 'too hard' category for MOST restaurants anyhow.

I found these reviews for the buffet on TripAdvisor.
