Adelaide Oval Hotel opens its doors
Adelaide’s most anticipated new hotel has officially opened its doors today, with the first guests checking in at Oval Hotel.
The premium boutique hotel at Adelaide Oval has been just 15 months in the making. Today, guests will explore for the first time its 138 perfectly appointed rooms, stunning reception lounge and two new restaurants.
Oval Hotel CEO Andrew Daniels said the hotel was already proving an asset to South Australia.
“Since day one, Oval Hotel has generated considerable interest from international and interstate visitors who are looking for a one-of-a-kind accommodation experience,” he said.
“As borders continue to re-open, we are excited to welcome visitors to this destination hotel, which we believe showcases the very best of our state.
“We have also been overwhelmed by the support we have received from South Australians and look forward to welcoming hundreds of guests over our fully booked opening weekend.”
Despite COVID-19 restrictions, booking for the 138-room boutique hotel have been regular, with a big upswing this week after NSW border restrictions were lifted.
The hotel is already close to being booked out for several weeks in November for the Rugby League State of Origin game at the Oval between NSW and Queensland. The ground will also host AFL Finals in the coming weeks.
Oval Hotel Rooms Division Manager Mieke Sellers said the hotel was full of South Australian touches, from the menus of new dining spaces Five Regions Restaurant and Bespoke Wine Bar & Kitchen, to the artwork on the walls and the amenities in the ensuites.
“The Oval Hotel guest experience is quintessentially South Australian,” she said.
“We have used South Australian producers, artists and suppliers wherever possible, establishing Oval Hotel as a true gateway for guests to our great state.
“Oval Hotel is both a destination in itself, and a perfectly positioned starting point for further exploration of South Australia.”
All Oval Hotel guest rooms feature:
- Panoramic views of the surrounding parklands, including St. Peter’s Cathedral (North Wing) and the River Torrens and Adelaide city skyline (South Wing);
- Intuitive technology allowing for customisation of lighting, temperature and more, as well as ordering of hotel services at the touch of a button;
- Contemporary design including premium fixtures and fittings and natural textiles; and
- Premium South Australian amenities throughout.
The Adelaide Oval Hotel even has its own resident welcome dog – Charli. The 15-week old Cavalier King Charles spaniel is a friendly face on arrival to Adelaide’s newest tourist attraction.
Oval Hotel manager Mieke Sellers said the inspiration for Charli – who has not yet revealed if she is a Crows or Power AFL supporter – came from South Australian wineries where the ubiquitous house dog has become a popular addition.
