Buzzing: A hotel in Adelaide with the right vibe

There's a man who walks beside me
It is who I used to be

When I am checking into a five-star hotel I expect them to have my reservation details correct. 

And I also expect them to service my room without being reminded. 

But in these difficult Covid days, hotels are doing it tough. I'm prepared to recommend the Mayfair Hotel, despite a couple of hiccups, for a number of reasons. 

First, the location is perfect; within strolling distance of just about anywhere you'd want to go in Adelaide. 

Secondly, the rooms are terrifically comfortable and the staff, particularly at breakfast, go the extra mile to make sure guests feel comfortable. Another shot of barista-made coffee? No problem. 

There is a sense of serious hospitality here.

Opened in 2015, the Mayfair offers understated luxury in the heritage-listed former Colonial Mutual Life Building, that dates back to 1934. It overlooks Rundle Mall from King William Street.

The property has 170 good-sized rooms in a range of configurations that feature hand-crafted South Australian furnishings, custom-made beds and premium hotel facilities.

Eating and drinking options include the Mayflower Restaurant, Hennessy rooftop bar and The Den Bistro. 

In support of South Australian produce and sustainable practices, the Mayfair has established two beehives, home to the ‘Mayfair Rooftop Bees’ (MRB). MRB Raw Honey features in signature Mayfair dishes, desserts and cocktails.

The hotel prides itself on warm and attentive service - and a new general manger will sort out the kinks. 

The Mayfair was named ‘Best 5-Star Hotel in Australia’ by Trivago 2019 and ‘Best Hotel Bed’ by Australian Gourmet Traveller in 2018.

There are range of packages available, including one for well-behaved pets.
