Hi, and welcome to Seawall Apartments, our independent, family-run hotel.
Dad started the business in 1977 and we have 3 generations of family members living and working here -it's a very family friendly atmosphere!
Rachael (that's me), Jayne, and Sophie are in the front office 7 days a week - we're the ones who will greet you on the phone.
My husband, David and brother, Sam look after the maintenance and refurbishment of the apartments. Our delightful housekeeping crew -Rose, Gerlyn, Pam and My do a sensational job ensuring the rooms are spotless!
Being community-minded, we like to use all local tradespeople and we are proud to use local disability service provider, Minda to do our laundry.
"The best seaside experience, Seawall have it all!"
REVIEWED 15 JULY 2012
This place rocks!! Right from the moment you arrive here you're welcomed with beautiful friendly smiles and feel that wonderful seaside feeling. The staff here are amazing and make you feel at home and relaxed which is what you need when starting a holiday. The rooms have everything you need for a romantic time for 2 or a special break for the whole family. On top of this your just a few steps from the beach and only a short walk to Glenelgs centre. We will most definitely return here for our next holiday and will lock this in as an annual event!!! Five stars :)
Buildings with a history
Seawall Apartments is a diverse collection of 7 quite distinct historic buildings which make up our 22 different apartments, right on the beach front at Glenelg.
The apartment called The School House is part of a 1889 terrace. From 1912-1937 it was run as a boys school, called Holdfast Bay Preparatory College and many famous Adelaide families sent their boys there. Jimmy Melrose, the aviator, whom the reserve out the front is named after; Frankie Bickford of the Bickford's drinks company; Walter Lund, the famous concert pianist; winemakers Tom Angove, and John and Bob Seppelt; Dick Rymill of the grazier family; John Bray the Chief Justice and many more.
Fishermans Cottage is one of the original buildings in Glenelg, dating back to 1840. The 2-storey Art Deco building called Olive Court and the 2 large houses on the seafront were built in 1910.
All the mod cons
No matter which of our 22 apartments you stay in, you'll enjoy the works of art, both paintings and sculptures, many commissioned by local artists. The historic buildings are lovely and we've been careful to keep the character, but we've also made sure we have all the modern conveniences for our guests to enjoy - including air conditioning, new kitchens and bathrooms with lovely hot spas.
