“Charming and beautiful”
There's not much to add to previous reviews - Seawall really is very well run, beautifully situated in an older but restored building, and employs excellent staff. Nothing was too much trouble. They kept asking us whether the group downstairs were too loud, but the walls seem to be made of stern stuff and our two bedroom apartment was quiet throughout every night we stayed here. Highly recommended for families."

“Perfect mix of old world charm & seaside perfection”
“Seawall as a perfect mix of old world charm & seaside perfection. My only downer is that we only stayed 1 night - until next time. Loved the place in every way!”
“The highlight of our 9 day trip”
“Absolutely perfect - my wife and I needed accomodation at short notice not having planned to be at Glenelg that afternoon, the beautiful young lady who greeted us and placed us in the best apartment in the house,she could not have been more helpful, the apartment was spotless, overlooking the water and the whole experience was wonderful, this accomodation was the highlight of our 9 day trip, hopefully we can come back here sometime in the future..”

“Would have liked to stay longer”
“"Sadly we only had one night at Seawall; we would have liked to stay longer. The staff were all friendly and helpful and the apartment was well appointed, spacious, very comfy bed, and beautifully clean. Positioned right on the sea front made it perfect for walking and easy to access all amenities near by. When we come to Adelaide again we shall certainly stay here. Excellent - 10 out of 10 all round. We loved it!!”
"Best place to stay in Adelaide and one of the best I ever stayed for business"
“The place is SUPERB. On my 4 previous visits to Adelaide I tried hotels and other apartments but nothing compares to Seawall. Very convenient location - 3 steps from the beach, easy to drive off in all directions, Jetty Rd and all shopping/ restaurants. My place was extra clean and bed was very comfortable, spa really helped after a long work day! You need to stay there to see how perfect they are. I was very sorry to leave and will definitely come back for business, if not on holiday with the family. I travel for business for most of the year and never came across the hotel/ apartment that made me feel so "at home". Not a single bad thing to say. Staff is extra helpful - thank you Rachael and Jayne and a very helpful man I met in the mornings enquiring about my never-arriving parcel! You look after the place really well. Keep on doing excellent job! All the best and definitely see you soon.”
"For the last 11 years we have holidayed at Seawall – child friendly"
“We have been visiting Glenelg, SA during the summer for 17 years and the last 11 years we have holidayed at Seawall. In the past nine years this has been a family holiday with young children. The location is superb - close to the shops and jetty but far enough removed from the hustle of the main streets. The child friendly beach is a walk across the pedestrian area with no car traffic to contend with. Perfect for a young family. The apartments are well appointed, spacious, clean and comfortable. Seawall has a quirky edge in its design/layout with plenty to explore. Our children love the extensive decking as do we for meals. The staff hospitality at Seawall is their standout feature.”
“No better place to stay in Adelaide”
“The location is perfect, the apartments are spacious and immaculate with quality fittings and the service is Excellent. I cannot recommend it more highly to anyone wanting a wonderful place to stay whether travelling for business or pleasure, alone or with your family. The beach and Esplanade is on your doorstep and it less than a 5 minute walk to Jetty Road. It is close to the airport and not far away from the city either.
The maritime feel adds to the charm and our Master 2 and a half loves to see the "big shark" and run straight down to the beach after being greeted by the wonderful staff. Off-street parking is also available at no extra charge which makes a nice change compared to the big hotel chains.
Make Seawall Apartments Glenelg your #1 choice when visiting Adelaide. We will be back again soon.”

“My husband and I had planned to stay for just one night but when we arrived to see the view we immediately decided to stay for 2 nights, which was no hassle for the staff at all! Great rooms, fantastic beds! and I was lucky enough to see dolphins swim past early in the morning. Being that this was our belated honeymoon 6 years in the making it was just amazing. We both wanted to thank Rachel for everything it was amazing and we hope to be back next year with the family.”

“Great seaside location that will keep you coming back”
“Seawall Apartments offers the perfect seaside holiday, and is so much better than a hotel. The buildings have so much character and are put together in such a way that offers both privacy and the opportunity for social gatherings. Although the buildings are historic they are renovated in a contemporary style incorporating original features.
From our apartment we were able to walk down the old wooden stairs, across the deck and out to the lawn that leads to the beach. It really is a home away from home. Booking was simple and friendly, as was the greeting upon arrival.
The location is fantastic, with the Jetty Road restaurants, hotels, and shops just a few minutes’ walk along the Promenade. Here, you can also take the tram into the city if more shopping is desired. The beach is fantastic - calm blue water, white soft sand, and beautiful green lawns lined by shady trees. We were there for 3 nights and could have so easily stayed. Our only regret is not staying for a full fortnight. Cannot fault this accommodation. We will be going back.”

“The rooms are gorgeous and so are the surroundings”
“My bridesmaids, parents and myself stayed here the night before the wedding in the Beach House, and my husband and I the night of the wedding in the Chapel. We were delighted with the service, and the staff were more than helpful with allowing us to stay back a bit longer, and were just lovely people on, and leading up to the day. The rooms are gorgeous and so are the surroundings. Would definitely stay here again.”

“A practical kitchen for longer stays”
“The Seawall apartments are a wonderful place to stay; very clean, top location on the beach, reasonably priced and a practical kitchen for longer stays. The owners are lovely and go out of their way to ensure you have a comfortable stay. We stayed for 6 days over Christmas with 2 young children and all enjoyed the apartments and the location on the beach. Highly recommend.”

“Beautifully appointed apartment”
“Loved The Seawall Apartments. Stayed in The Chapel and it was a spacious, quiet and beautifully appointed apartment. Lacked for nothing and the quality of the fittings was excellent. Would want to stay nowhere else in Glenelg.”
“We could have stayed forever!”
“I booked an apartment and was upgraded to the Beach House with an amazing deck, ocean views, spa bath and BBQ. We only stayed one night but could have stayed forever! Felt like home, well appointed, super clean, spa bath with ocean views and comfy lounge room! I can't wait to go back!!!!!”
