With so many amazing new hotels opening in Adelaide, you’ve probably thought to yourself, will I ever get a chance to check these places out. Well, the answer is yes, and soon.
The fantastic brand spanking new Oval Hotel opened only weeks ago, and looks set to become a favourite with locals and travellers alike. With its glamorous wine and coffee bar at reception overlooking St Peter’s Cathedral and parklands, its decadent Bespoke bar overlooking the oval itself, and its Five Regions fine dining restaurant, also wrapping the iconic Adelaide Oval, there’s plenty of reasons to visit.
Now you have one more.
The Great State Voucher promotion, encouraging both city and regional stays, is launching on October 15th at 9am, during which, South Australia will be chipping in between $50 (regional) and $100 (city stays) towards your hotel bill, at a wide range of amazing South Australian destinations.
For a very limited time save $100 off Adelaide city stays and $50 off regional and suburban stays in our Great State.
Get your Great State Voucher from 9am on 15 October to 11:59pm on 31 October 2020 unless they run out prior.
Luckily for those of us lusting for a stay at the new Oval Hotel, it’s involved in the campaign, so you can nab a great deal on a room, normally $229 a night, for only $129. That means you can use your savings to finally dine at Five Seasons, explore the wine bar at Bespoke, or even do an Oval Roof Climb – or venture further afield and explore our great city.
For those looking for cheaper options, the Ibis Hotel is only going to cost you $1 (it’s cheaper than a cab home!) and the brand new Crowne Plaza on Frome Street is also involved in the promotion. The Crowne Plaza officially opens on November 2nd, and you could be among the first to stay there for only $55 (once you’ve used the voucher) if you jump on this incredible deal. Just wait til you see the inside – it’s spectacular (see the pics here).
There’s also a raft of other fantastic hotels included in the campaign, like the beautiful Mayfair Hotel, and SkyCity’s new EOS Hotel which is also opening later this year.
To get your voucher, and see the full list of hotels involved, follow these three steps:
- From 9am on 15 October, the link to register will be available here. You cannot pre-register.

Best of all, if you’re saving yourself a cool $100 on a night in the city, you can use that money to support a local business by shopping, eating out, having some cocktails, or enjoying a pamper session at your favourite day spa.
