by Wayfarer Editors

One of Adelaide’s most visually impressive pieces of architecture, the Oval Hotel, has opened to guests, with the hotel wrapping around the exterior façade of the South Australian capital’s premiere sports and entertainment facility.

After over a year in construction and fit-out, the 138-room Oval Hotel offers guests views over the adjacent parkland and local landmarks including St Peter’s Cathedral, the Torrens River and the Adelaide skyline. Rooms are also fitted with locally-sourced amenities, premium fittings and natural textiles.

Guest facilities include a striking reception lounge and two new restaurants – Five Regions Restaurant and the Bespoke Wine Bar and Kitchen.

Oval Hotel CEO, Andrew Daniels, said the hotel has attracted significant interest from domestic and international visitors looking for a unique experience.

“As borders continue to reopen, we are excited to welcome visitors to this destination hotel, which we believe showcases the very best of our state,” he said.

Oval Hotel Rooms Division Manager, Mieke Sellers, said the guest experience was quintessentially South Australian.

“We have used South Australian producers, artists and suppliers wherever possible, establishing Oval Hotel as a true gateway for guests to our great state,” she said.
