Atura Hotel at Adelaide Airport Review

Day one of our epic quest to the North Pole to visit Santa took us to Adelaide. 

Atura is a new hotel connected to Adelaide Airport.  Our flights to Helsinki could go via Adelaide or Sydney, and since we have family in Adelaide we decided to pick it for a quick stop over on the trip out.

After collecting our luggage onto trolleys it was only a 30 meter walk from the baggage collection area to the entrance of the hotel, with the hotel connected directly to the arrivals hall.

Check in at Atura Hotel

Check in was smooth and the staff were really lovely.  Since we were only staying overnight we took the luggage trolleys up to our room with our mountain of bags.  The room was spacious so our Mt Kilimanjaro of luggage fitted in the room easily.  The feeling of space was amplified by the whole wall window looking out over Adelaide airport to the coastline beyond.

Breakfast at Atura Hotel

Our booking included a buffet breakfast which was really nice.  There was a great selection of hot and cold items, including the kids favorite - Belgium waffles.  The mushrooms were awful, there was some sort of flavoring through them, destroying their natural appeal.  On the other hand the juice was amazing and tasted like it was freshly squeezed.

We met with family each night we were there in the restaurant which had a good assortment of meal options.  There was no children's menu available, so we ordered a meal like fish and chips and split it between the two children.

Atura Hotel Review

The hotel has a quirky industrial mid century modern vibe, which is bright and fun, with good finishes throughout.    

My only point for improvement with the hotel would be that the curtains were only internal roller blinds.  All good airport hotels that I have stayed at have thick block out curtains with plenty of overlap and extra fabric to ensure jet-lagged guests can get the sleep that they need regardless of the local time.  We were only just departing on our adventure and were already on local time so it wasn't an issue for us but it could be an issue for international travelers.

Overall Adelaide was a really family friendly airport.  They had complementary luggage trolleys, a well laid out airport with air bridges and showers available in the arrivals hall near the hotel entrance.  There is also an indoor play area just past security which the kids enjoyed playing in.

Atura was a great family friendly hotel as well, with rooms that can accommodate a family of four, and lovely staff that were really welcoming towards the kids.  Next time we have to transit quickly through Adelaide we will definitely stay here.  To book the website is
