We are a full services hotel with three separate function rooms, seating 150 in the City of Adelaide Room; 100 in the Palm Court (inside) and 100 in the function room. The City of Adelaide room has a permanent stage and sound system. We have an extensive menu - quality food at prices to suit all budgets is important to us. We are happy to work with Artists to tailor 'show only' or 'dinner and show' packages. We are located in an historic precinct and our original building is heritage listed. We have just completed a major refurbishment and offer a warm and relaxing environment, complemented by historic memorabilia highlighting the Ports past. We are highly experienced operators and look forward to working with Fringe artists as we have done for many years. We look forward to hearing from you. Regards, John
