Our son recently wed his "one true love" and we were fortunate that the bride's family chose to hold the reception at the Intercontinental Adelaide. What a brilliant choice it was! The venue itself looked superb on the night, with outstanding attention to detail. The food was beyond all our expectations and was coupled with excellent service. Emily, our event organiser was a pleasure to deal with, making the whole experience a pleasure. I would highly recommend the Intercontinental Adelaide for hosting any event.

Emily and her team were amazing to work with. The Intercontinental hotel was incredible and all our guests were in awe of the set up and service. It truly was the best night, ever! Highly recommend!

27 Nov 2021

Intercontinental Adelaide went above and beyond to ensure our big day was everything we wanted. The team, particularly the event coordinator, were extremely attentive throughout the entire experience. From the initial conversations to the final big day moments, we were very impressed with the personal service. Even with an extremely busy day within the hotel on our actual wedding day, the team did a fantastic job. Even if very minor matters arose they were resolved promptly. The hotel were flexible in our needs and worked with us to create the most magical day of our lives. When researching venues years ago we had initially enquired with multiple hotels within the CBD however none compared to the personal service of Intercontinental. We would absolutely recommend the hotel for any event.

Christina from the Intercontinental was the most amazing person to deal with. She went above and beyond go help us celebrate our perfect day! She made everything so easy and made sure we covered off even the smallest of details. The food was incredible - some of the feedback we received from guests was it was the best wedding food they had ever had.

19 Oct 2019

Everybody's still raving about the food! A majority of the guests were hospitality workers, and they were all raving about how much food there was and how good it tasted! The staff there were amazing as well, and made sure they had everything taken care of. It was so convenient, we could just walk upstairs afterwards to the king suite they gave us! We had more than enough room!

Such a nice quality hotel!

6 Nov 2015

We were able to have someone drop our bags off early in the morning, and didn't check in ourselves until after 3am. They provided a discount to our guests for multiple bookings. Lovely rooms, great breakfast, great cocktail lounge.

8 May 2015

My wife and I stayed at the Intercontinental Hotel on North Terrace Adelaide. What more can i really say about this Hotel!!!. Everything was fantastic. The staff went out of their way to make sure that we had a very special end to a very special day. They personalised our experience. They also allowed us to use a couple of the rooms before accomodation to prepare for the wedding reception.. Location is ideal. The rooms were clean, and the staff very polite and friendly.

31 Jan 2015

The room was nice but they kept stuffing up my booking - we even got locked out of the room and had to go get new keys from the front desk after the wedding!
