Where to Stay in Adelaide & The Adelaide Hills

Here’s a rundown of all of the places I’ve stayed at during my last trip to Adelaide, including all the things I liked about each one.


Hotel Indigo

Not only is Hotel Indigo a beautifully designed and furnished hotel with an incredible rooftop bar, it’s footsteps away from Adelaide Central Markets and Chinatown so you can literally walk 100m to grab a delicious bite and check out what’s on offer. 


Sofitel is one of Adelaide’s newest and premium hotels. It’s a short walk from Leigh St where all the wine bars and restaurants are (highly recommend Leigh St Wine Room) and has an incredible indoor pool and stunning restaurant for breakfast. 


Crowne Plaza

Crowne Plaza Adelaide is situated in the north eastern section of the CBD, this fun hotel is surrounded by a plethora of restaurants and bars. I stayed here during the Adelaide Fringe Festival and is it was the perfect base. Morning breakfast here was also very good!


The Adelaide Hills

Sequoia Lodge

I hope that everyone gets to experience this place once in their lives! Sequoia Lodge is the most luxurious place I’ve ever stayed at with the most attentive and lovely staff. From the moment you check in and see the breath-taking view in the lobby to the moment you regretfully leave, you will feel zen and truly looked after. The suites are so generous, modern and well appointed, with a fireplace, gigantic bathroom, pillow menu the list goes on.

However the highlight of the stay was soaking in their hot pools which overlook an incredible view of the Adelaide Hills. It’s not cheap, a night here will set you back a small fortune, but this place truly exceeded my expectations and I do think if you have a really special occasion, it’s absolutely worth the splurge.


Lost Retreats

If you want to live out your tiny home dreams, this place is for you and it’s a very short 20 minute drive from the city. This is Lost Retreat’s newest accommodation offering in Mount Osmond and is a cosy place with a gorgeous view, perfect for a little getaway or base in the Adelaide Hills if you’re travelling around there. Check out a few of their other properties too.
