Majestic Hotels was established in 1986 with 52 self-contained apartments. The 120-room Majestic Roof Garden in Adelaide's inner-city is the latest addition. Rooms are divided into three categories Business, Executive and Superior.
The stand-out feature is the garden. Designed by award-winning landscape architect David Baptiste, it's relaxing and vital at the same time. Under a suspended wave-like canopy which was designed on a napkin over lunch by award-winning architect Ken Woolley, it has marvellous views over the CBD to the Adelaide Hills, a water feature and barbecue facilities which are used, weather permitting, to cook some spectacular meals.
A huge red gum table was handcrafted by local artisan Clyde Shaw and craned up to the roof. Australian sandstone has been used inside and out.
Warmth and sophistication are part of the ambience. It's just a few steps away from the East End restaurant, good shopping, the South Australian Art Gallery, museum and Botanic Gardens.
Rooms have king-size beds and luxurious bathrooms. In fact, from the moment you enter the hotel you will notice everything is luxurious.
Every room has large-screen television with cable and movies and a mini-bar range. There's broadband Internet access and personalised messaging service and a business centre with IT specialists on hand.
Culshaw's Restaurant has a variety of local, Asian and European influences and the house specialty is Majestic beef from their own property at Mount Magnificent in the Adelaide Hills.
