Our top picks for Adelaide hotels
Best hotels in Adelaide CBD
Adelaide's city centre plays host to an array of attractions from the Botanic Gardens to the Central markets. The Hilton Hotel is located right in the heart of the city centre next to Victoria's Square. You'll find the Adelaide Central Markets within three minutes of the hotel by foot.
Many of the city's main sights are located in the north. The Pullman Hotel is just a 15 minute walk away from the zoo and botanic gardens and five minutes from the Art Gallery of South Australia and the South Australian Museum. If you'd like to be in close proximity to the Adelaide Oval then the InterContinental Hotel is just over five minutes away. You'll also be 10 minutes down the road from the state's art gallery and museum.
We also recommend stays including the Majestic Roof Garden Hotel, Ibis Adelaide and Mansions on Pulteney. All three are perfectly located in the northern part of Adelaide so you can still explore the city by foot and visit the bigger attractions like the zoo and botanic gardens.
The Pullman Hotel
Best Adelaide Hills accommodation
If you're after an escape from all the hustle and bustle of Adelaide CBD then the Hills are just the destination for you. Mount Lofty is one of the main attractions and if you're after uninterrupted views of the hillside then you can't look past the Mount Lofty House. You'll wake up to the quiet scene of the Australian bush all from the comfort of your bed.
For a small-town stay that oozes history then Hahndorf is a great little stopover. The town has a big German influence and the Hahndorf Resort is perfectly located in the centre near the local winery (a 20-minute walk from the Hahndorf Hill Winery or a 2-minute drive). You'll also find the Cedars of Hans Heysen is just three minutes up the road.
Located in Mount Barker, Dalmeny Bed & Breakfast is just a 7-minute drive to the Ngeringa winery and 10 minutes away from the Summit and lookout. If you've brought the kids along then you'll conveniently have the Aston Hills Trail Park seven minutes away via car. We also recommend stays in the Mount Crawford region at the Beauchamp House; here you'll be in close proximity to the Mount Crawford Forest and Summit. The Forbes Wine Co, Edenmae Estate Wines, Cranford Wine Company and Poverty Hill Wines are also a short 15-minute drive away.
Mount Lofty House
Dalmeny Bed and Breakfast

This stay alongside the 109 Flashpackers hostel is just 10 minutes away from the Adelaide Himeji Garden which boasts beautiful views of ponds and intricate landscaping.
Location-wise you can't go wrong with Adelaide Central YHA or My Place & Adelaide Backpackers Hostel. Both located on Waymouth Street, you can organise tours and events from the front desk, including bus pick-ups and drop-offs to and from the Barossa Valley.

One of the biggest things you'll want alongside the hotel is a place to take your pet outside and South Terrace Motel is just across the road from a small dog park next to the Adelaide Himeji Gardens. The Travellers Inn Backpackers Hostel is a few minutes away from the same park and if you're planning to head north up on Hutt Street you'll also have King Rodney Park.The Hilton may have come as a surprise on its pet-friendly policy. If you're after a holiday without needing to compromise on five-star luxury then you can't look past the Hilton. Much like the previously mentioned stays, you'll be a few minutes' walk from the GS Kingston Park.
Now these aren't the only stays that welcome your furry friends. The Adelaide Inn, Haven Marina Glenelg and the Kent Town Dress Circle Apartments will all happily accept your pets. The Inn is located just a couple of streets away from the Reservoir Park and Haven Marina Glenelg is right on the bay with plenty of walkways to explore.

Our Adelaide accommodation reviews
Pullman Adelaide from Finder Hotels
Reviewed by: Amy Bradney-George, Editor
The Pullman Adelaide offers a relaxing place to stay right in the heart of the city. It’s great if you want to get around on foot and also easy to get to by taxi or hire car – perfect if you’re tired out from wining, dining and exploring everything Adelaide has to offer. And based on what I’ve seen, there’s a lot happening in this city at any time of year.
- Budget: Mid-High
- Pros: Well priced for a 5-star hotel; Located right in the city; Stylish modern and inviting decor
- Cons:No view from my room
- Our rating: 4.5/5
Alternate Adelaide accommodation options
Hotels aren't always everyone's cup of tea. If you're after accommodation that is all to yourself then we recommend Airbnb, Stayz and Homestay. These provide a home-away-from-home feel that will probably end up saving you a bit of money. They are also usually located in charming neighbourhoods you wouldn't have discovered otherwise.
