With easy access to the city and a laid-back feel, Enfield is an ideal base for exploring Adelaide and the wider region on a budget.

Just a 10-minute drive north of the Adelaide CBD, the quiet suburban neighbourhood of Enfield is one of the best locations in the city for a budget stay. There are great transport links into Adelaide, while travellers can make the most of great-value pub accommodation, such as the renovated Hotel Enfield. There are nearby caravan parks, too, which sit surprisingly close to the verdant countryside of South Australia. Here are the best cheap hotels in Enfield.

1. Hotel Enfield

Budget pub accommodation doesn’t get much better than the Hotel Enfield, where you can stay in a renovated Aussie pub. The hotel has 14 budget-friendly rooms alongside self-service laundry machines where you can catch up on your washing. Perhaps more importantly, though, hungry guests can take advantage of the pub’s Family Bistro, where huge steaks and sizzling seafood are served up daily. If you’re thirsty, then head to the Sports Bar, where cold beers are on tap and the latest Aussie Rules games are shown on big screens.

2. Comfort Inn and Suites Sombrero

This is one for the cash-conscious parents because Comfort Inn and Suites Sombrero has a range of rooms, suites and apartments designed for easy family stays in Enfield. Book into a family room for four – which is divided into two separate spaces for privacy, each with a television – or upgrade to a three-bedroom apartment if there are five of you staying. The best pick is the townhouse apartment, a fully self-contained two-bedroom spot that’s as spacious as it is budget-friendly.

3. Enfield Motor

If you’re road tripping around South Australia and are in need of a budget break in Adelaide, then take a pit stop at Enfield Motor. Ideally positioned on Main North Road, you can park the car, leave your bags and jump on a bus for the 10-minute ride into central Adelaide. The hotel offers basic but comfortable twin, queen and king rooms, all of which have fridges, microwaves, kettles and even toasters – ensuring you can whip up a budget breakfast or a quick dinner on the cheap.

This hotel in Enfield has spacious executive rooms at great prices, while groups and families can book out the deluxe family room for up to five people. For extended stays, the fully equipped apartments are of excellent value. You’ll not only be able to take a dip in the pool every day, but you’ll save money cooking up dinner in the kitchen.

At the Walkers Arms Hotel, you don’t have to pay premium prices for a romantic getaway.

Enjoy the sunshine in the on-site beer garden, where alongside a cold beer you can score lunchtime deals on pizzas and schnitzels. In the evenings, enjoy the refined surroundings of the à la carte restaurant, including the sunken lounge and the 14m (46ft) long marble bar behind which mixologists happily craft cocktails.

6. The Mansfield Park Hotel

Sitting between Enfield and Port Adelaide, the Mansfield Park is a sleek, modern hotel that’s an old-fashioned Aussie pub at heart. The budget-friendly rooms sit above the pub, and while they do feature kitchenettes for home cooking, you might find the cold beers and pub classics at the bistro too tempting to pass up. The restaurant serves up a roast of the day, alongside favourites such as salt-and-pepper squid and fish and chips.

7. Levi Adelaide Holiday Park
