Located only 10 kilometres from the heart of Adelaide City, Glenelg is a charming seaside resort set on the long sandy white shores of Holdfast Bay. Glenelg is the site of South Australia's original mainland settlement in 1836. It is Adelaide's most popular coastal region. Glenelg has a perfect Mediterranean climate characterised by warm dry summers and cool mild winters.

Jetty Road is the shopping and dining hub for beachside Glenelg. This kilometre-long strip offers al fresco dining. There's fabulous restaurants, including the award-winning Goodlife Organic Pizza, and plenty of good coffee and delicious ice cream.

You'll find fashion houses here, gifts, music, books and more. Most stores and services are open seven days a week. The Beachouse entertainment complex is also nearby, offering young people and families hours of fun including water slides, mini golf and arcade games.

Heritage-listed Glenelg Town Hall houses plenty of other enthralling stories. The Bay Discovery Centre tracks the history of Holdfast Bay – its early settlement, federation days and evolving seaside lifestyle.

Further along the foreshore, the new Holdfast Shores marina and complex provides stylish dining and shopping at the water's edge. This is also the home of Temptation Sailing's dolphin cruises, based at the marina.

On weekends, the area becomes even more vibrant, with the addition of street markets, adventure activities and entertainers.

A short 25 minute trip, on a tram departing from the centre of Glenelg - Moseley Square, takes you into Victoria Square in the heart of Adelaide. The tram line has been recently extended to take passengers on to the North Terrace precinct, the Adelaide Oval footbridge terminating at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre.  So you can base yourself at seaside Glenelg, but you are just a short trip away from the lights of the big city!

But really why leave this delightful seaside destination, when everything is at your fingertips. We hope you enjoy your stay at Glenelg, we know you will want to come back again for some more of what this beautiful town has to offer.

when you book direct, you become family.

Happy Customers

Stayed here for four nights over long weekend for Masters Games. Excellent in every way. Very very clean. Breakfast was great and very filling. Location is superb right at the main intersection in Glenelg. Tram is literally 50 meters from the room. Plenty of parking. Choices for eating out incredible. Will certainly be staying here again.

Friendly staff very welcoming, happy to accommodate us without a booking . Upgraded us at no charge, huge studio apartment, maybe not as modern as others but very comfortable with everything you need. Close to everything and good value . Well worth the stay thank you :)

This is our second stay here. When in Adelaide we don’t look anywhere else. This place is quality. Close to eateries, tram into town. The staff goes that extra mile. Nice and cosy. Off-street parking. And it’s free.
