The key to finding where to stay and play in South Australia has just been handed to anyone who owns an iPhone, iPad or an iPod Touch.
It’s not your ordinary key, though. It’s an app called Rooms4You: South Oz.
Rooms4You has reviewed hotels, B&Bs, apartments and holiday homes all over the State and categorised them according to the style or mood they offer, their location, price and the special facilities they feature.
There are 63 properties featured - so far - in 17 categories: Beachside, Bed & Breakfast, Boutique, Business, Families/Groups, Getaways, Heritage, Holiday Homes, Luxury, Nature Escapes, Nightlife, Pubs, Romance, Room with a View, Unique/Quirky, Wine Stays and Island Escapes.
Each entry has photos of the property, a map and details of how far away it is, how to get there and how much a taxi will cost to get there.
There are also suggestions on where to eat and what to see and do while you’re there, with hyperlinks to websites for even more information.
For those looking for a room, the app is valuable tool. Want a romantic getaway in the heart of a wine region that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg? Rooms4You can help find it.
For property owners and managers, the app is a priceless marketing tool – it doesn’t cost anything to be listed. If app users like the look of the property, they can call direct to make a booking or link to their website.
Look for the pink keyhole icon in the App Store. Rooms4You: Sydney and Melbourne will be on-line soon.
