If you’re looking for a central place to stay in Adelaide, with convenient access to the city, nearby to retail shopping and dining, and easily accessed by car or public transport, you need not look further than the Royal Coach.
Just 15-20 minutes by car from Adelaide airport, a short 5-10 minute walk through Adelaide’s East Parklands into Hutt Street or Rundle Street, and less than a 4 minute drive to Norwood Parade, the National Wine Centre or Central Business District, the Adelaide Royal Coach is centrally located for your convenience.
For self-drive leisure travellers and corporate business travellers with their own car, the Royal Coach offers off-street car parking for guests, at no extra charge.
Kent Town is a small urban inner suburb of the city of Adelaide, within the Norwood, Payneham & St Peters Council area. Its boundary is Dequetteville Terrace, where the Royal Coach is situated. On the other side of the road, Rymill Park (which also borders Dequetteville Terrace) falls into the Adelaide city council area and official suburb of Adelaide.
Rymill Park (also known as Park 14 of the Adelaide Parklands) is often utilised for public events, and features a large lake with row boats for hire, a sizable children’s playground and a kiosk, making it an ideal spot for a picnic or lie in the sun. Many of our customers enjoy a morning walk or run around the park, often heading further down to nearby Victoria Park, which is a popular running and cycling spot for locals. This area also forms part of the Clipsal500 Adelaide V8 supercar city race track during February / March each year. Turn 8 of the track situated directly in front of our motel, which means we are the closest accommodation for racegoers attending the 4 day event.
The Royal Coach is conveniently located near Fullarton Road/Princes Highway which leads directly to the South Eastern Freeway for an easy drive to Hahndorf, the Adelaide Hills or onto Melbourne. Dequetteville Terrace also turns into Hackney Road/Robe Terrace and leads out to Main North Road, for easy access to the Barossa and Mid North, without having to negotiate inner-city traffic congestion.
