Gay Friendly Hotels Adelaide

Gay Friendly Hotels Adelaide Australia: Top 3 (Updated 2021)

Perhaps it’s the region’s Adelaide –like weather and progressive vibe, or its diverse yet well-integrated population (you won’t find a concentrated “gayborhood” like Sydney’s Darlinghurst and Oxford Street here); Melbourne and Adelaide in  Australia are about as LGBTfriendly as they come. With many gay friendly hotels Adelaide to choose from it’s a great summer or winter destination

Australia is one of the most LGBT-friendly countries in the world. In a 2013 Pew Research poll, 79% of Australians agreed that homosexuality should be accepted by society, making it the fifth most supportive country in the survey behind Spain (88%), Germany (87%), Canada and the Czech Republic (both 80%).

Adelaide is South Australia’s cosmopolitan coastal capital. Its ring of parkland on the River Torrens is home to renowned museums such as the Art Gallery of South Australia, displaying expansive collections including noted Indigenous art, and the South Australian Museum, devoted to natural history. The city’s Adelaide Festival is an annual international arts gathering with spin-offs including fringe and film events.

Guest rooms are non-smoking and are equipped with cable/satellite TV, pay on demand movies, broadband internet access, iron/ ironing board and mini-bar.

Lovely accommodation Hotel central although situated in Hindley street it very quiet no street noise.

Hindley Street can be loud/boisterous at night, and there are an abundant amount of “massage” places and clubs in the vicinity, but once you are back inside the hotel, it is very calm and tranquil, and you’d never know about the surrounding debauchery!

Hotels located in the middle of a more notorious part of the C.B.D nightlife! clubs, bars,& red light areas.

Set back off Hindley Street this hidden gem of a hotel has a great central location and is presented very well. The staff are fantastic, nothing is too much trouble, and the packages they offer present real value for money.

The room was beautifully spacious, larger than most city rooms, with two lounge chairs and a desk facing that had the potential to face outwards to the stadium (view partially blocked due to another tall building). The bed was relatively comfortable, however, the pillow’s were just too soft for my person liking, however, two pillows per person were given on the bed to allow for adjustments. Room was equipped with a mini bar fridge with the usual accompaniments and a TV with some Foxtel channels.

Two complimentary bottles of water were given daily, upon the room being cleaned. Bathroom was large with a step in bath/shower, however I can strongly fault the lighting in the bathroom- not sufficient/accurate lighting which made it very difficult to apply makeup. Overall, the room was tidy, but has experienced some wear and tear- can be easily resolved with a lick of paint. Hotel itself is large, clean and beautifully appointed with everything you need, restaurant, bar, pool etc.

Location is perfectly situated in the heart of the city, with a quick 2-minute walk either way to Leigh Street or Peel Street, 5-minute walk to Rundle mall and a 5-minute walk to the Casino. Keep in mind; Hindley Street can get loud on the weekend (music/people), as there are a few bars and clubs surrounding the hotel. Would highly recommended and would definitely stay again.

Beautiful historic building in a great central location – surrounded by all the restaurants and bars of the famous Hindley Street and near to Rundle Mall shopping precinct. We found the nightlife a little loud at night but the windows are soundproof so it’s silent if they are closed. The rooms are pretty much what you’d expect but pool was fantastic for summer.

The entrance foyer is appealing, service at check in and check out was friendly and prompt. We booked a king suite which was spacious and clean but a bit dated (bathroom particularly filled a bit dated). The living room and the bedroom were spacious. The only lacking facility was an option to play music. No ipod docker, no music channel via TV. Only a bedside table built in radio which we couldn’t get to work. King bed and pillows were comfortable.

The breakfast buffet looked good with a wide range of hot and cold dishes, and the staff were all very friendly and helpful.

Breakfast though was really good and the buffet style had a selection to suit most people. We enjoyed our stay at the hotel and would return – and even try the restaurant next time if they serve what they advertise.

Ibis Adelaide provides a base of exploration with Rundle Mall, Rundle Street and the Botanic Gardens on the doorstep whilst the North Terrace Cultural precinct, Festival Theatre, Adelaide Oval and Convention Centre are only a short tram ride away

The location is amazing, basically walk out the door and take a few steps and you are in Rundle Mall! Easily walked everywhere from festival theatre to the fringe gardens!

Great location for shops, bars, restaurants and public transport.

The location is perfect at walking distance to Rundle Mall, Central Market, Art Gallery and Museum! Plus Coles is right next to the hotel. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone who likes to explore Adelaide’s CBD which is full of history and culture

The room was clean and fresh, had a fridge, ironing board, safe, hair dryer, kettle etc. There was a great full length mirror and the bathroom had an awesome shower and enough room to be comfortable. The room was on the smaller side to what we are used to but we were aware of this when we booked and the bed was a queen. None of this detracted at all from our stay as there was plenty of room for the two of us and the queen bed was so comfortable it didn’t matter that it wasn’t a king. The pillows were great and there were spares in the room.

Ibis is in a central city location. Rooms are basic but comfortable and spotlessly clean. No stocked bar fridge but a vending machine next to the lifts which I actually prefer. Check-in / out was efficient and friendly. Breakfast is fairly basic and there is better value in nearby cafes. Overall for a quick trip in and out of Adelaide this was a good experience and good value for money.

One of Adelaide’s only new hotels this place is great value for money. It’s quite comfortable and trendy for an IBIS and everything is clean with nice rooms which are a decent size.

The location is as central as possible just behind the mall and a few minutes away from Rundle Street and the west end, so there is no shortage of Restaurants. It’s also only a 5/10 min walk from the central markets. I travel to Adelaide a lot and have cycled through most of the hotels, this is my favourite for the price.

The breakfasts were great, they have 3 options ranging from $10 for as much tea or coffee, toast and pastries you would like which is what we had and was perfect for us (they do a lovely, thick raisin bread & the croissants and small pain au raisin are really nice), and served until 10am!. There is also another 2 options which were dearer, the mid option including cereals and cold options and the dearer including a cooked buffet breakfast.

​​Opposite the recently refurbished Rundle Mall shops plus many cafés and restaurants.
​​At night, people flock to Hindley Street for the many pubs, clubs, restaurants and bars.

Beautifully styled luxury hotel in the middle of Adelaide CBD Even though only booked a queen room wasn’t disappointed, room much larger than expected and could quite comfortably stay for several days in this room if on holiday.

Room was in the Jewel Box of the Mayfair Hotel , plenty of natural light through the diamond shaped windows,Had many inclusions including Vitoria plunger coffee and some very nice organza tea bags , which being tea and coffee drinkers were appreciated ,comp mini bar, beautiful soft blanket tucked away in the wardrobe . Have stayed in a room here also facing Hindley street and both times have not heard any street noise despite being on one of the busiest corners In Adelaide.

The rooms are small with essentially no views. But elegantly appointed with two televisions, terrific over-bed dimmable reading lights, complimentary mini-bar with soft drinks , beer, chips, nuts and delicious hot chocolate. Bathrooms have a adjustable shower head and and large tub with all the amenities, including a night light. Nightly turn down? Of course. Need more water? No worries.
The bed is one of the most comfortable you can imagine, and do not forget to dial up their special “pillow menu”

The Hennessy roof bar serves wonderful drinks and the bar downstairs allows you to customize your menu for a light snack or dinner.

If you are in Adelaide for Cricket matches, the Central Market, or just coming ( and you should) to experience the Adelaide Hills,McLaren Vale or Barossa Valley I highly recommend the Mayfair. From entry to exit we will remember their wonderful hospitality.

The room on the 4th floor are spacious, classy and the complimentary mini-bar and macarons were nice touches that most hotels don’t offer. Lovely bed and pillow selection and loads of pay TV channels including sports and music. We took the convenient tram to the Kings Head hotel to see a band and then tram back to the casino for dinner, drinks and gambling. At the end of a great night, The Mayfair was just a convenient 10 min walk back up Bank Street and Hindley Street. Finally, breakfast in the restaurant was exceptional including eggs cooked to your liking, healthy choices, omelettes and bacon & tomato and mushrooms with freshly squeezed juice and an 11am check-out time made our stay one to remember.
