    Hi taaniwha,

    I guess it depends on how much you want to spend. There is the Marion Holiday Park just across the road (pretty much) from Flinders and I think they have onsite vans and cabins, otherwise there is the Tonsley Hotel just down the road which is pretty reasonably priced also. Otherwise, if you are looking for something a little more upmarket, any of the hotels in Glenelg would be your next closest.

    Good luck.

        I work at FMC and we use the marion holiday park mentioned by the others for patients that need to hang around in Adelaide for check ups prior to flying home and it seems to be o.k.

        The hospital also has flats which country patients used to be able to stay in, not sure if this is still possible but its definately worth checking with the hospital.

        Good luck
