Guest Testimonial

First experience with A&K. Intended to ask various travel companies for quotes but Vicky (Hamlin) was so good with her suggestions that we did not seek alternative quotations the suggested itinerary was excellent and helped us decide on a balanced and interesting holiday.

- GD, Windermere



Located on the corner of King William and Hindley Street, the chic and intriguing Mayfair Hotel offers glamour in the heart of Adelaide's CBD. Situated in a heritage listed 1930s building, the hotel's stunning neo-gothic façade is a stark contrast to the recently built adjoining Jewel Box wing, so named due to its diamond-shaped metal clad exterior. Art Deco interiors complement the building's original layout and are defined by a soft palate of slate, taupe and ivory illuminated by crystal lamps and large mirrors. Modern amenities are as usual, with LED televisions, on demand movies, Wi-Fi and touch-screen telephones in all rooms and suites.

Mayfair's perfect central location combined with a finger-on-the-pulse concierge team make the hotel an ideal base to explore the city's local attractions, festivals and events. From cheese festivals to night time noodle markets, comedy nights and film festivals; if there's some excitement to be had, the concierge will most likely know all about it.

As Adelaide begins to make a name for itself in the gastronomic boom consuming South Australia, the Mayfair Hotel is no exception. Local produce, wines and artisan treats dominate the menus at Mayflower Restaurant and Bar. Retreat from the city for an afternoon to relax with the Mayflower's signature High Tea, a mouth-watering medley of delicate finger sandwiches, rustic scones and fruity tartlets; the perfect tonic after a day of exploring.
