Such a lovely hotel and lovelier staff. The bathroom must be brand new, it's stunning, the bed and pillow dreamily comfortable and the room spacious. I wanted for nothing except maybe a nicer outlook but that just comes with the design of the building leaving the 'inside' rooms with a private but average outlook - no big deal really unless...

The Playford is a beautiful hotel with great facilities, spacious rooms and superb decor. It is in a great location on North Terrace opposite the train station and Convention Centre. Reception, concierge and housekeeping staff were excellent, however the restaurant and bar staff were quite poor and very inexperienced. Some focus on their training is desperately needed!

Lovely and convent hotel would highly recommend especially having a guest in house laundry. Great room service and lovely breakfast. Pool spa and gym area was great. Short walk to the zoo and tram and train station directly across the road.

I booked a 3 night stay for my partner's birthday. The hotel was luxurious and the staff were very accomodating. Every time you walked through the doors no matter what time of day it was the staff always acknowledged your presence. We had dinner in our room on our last night and the meal was amazing. I would definitely stay...

For all my family members, this is our favourite hotel in Adelaide. It changed the name several times over the years, but it offers the most Charm and has the best pool - indoor heated with hot Whirlpool.

Only had one night here on business recently but was very impressed with the beautiful lobby and decor throughout the hotel. I was in a loft style room and it was spacious with a king sized bed that was so comfortable and quiet I slept like a log. Breakfast next morning was a fruit plate presented beautifully and granola not...

We stayed 3 nights from 2nd Jan and had a very pleasant stay. Danni on check in, Hayden and the other porter on at the same time when we arrived, and Young on concierge the next day were very helpful. Although, all staff we came across were very friendly and accommodating. Always acknowledging us when we passed them in the...
