I was visiting Adelaide with some family for a one-night getaway and to watch Carlton play Port Adelaide at Adelaide Oval. I chose the Playford due to its great reviews on TripAdvisor and proximity to Adelaide Oval itself (10-15 minute walk). Staying at the Playford turned out to be the highlight of our trip without question! The Playford is a...

Sofitel level rooms with great bed. Mini-bar was stocked by a real pro. Glendronach 12 year old whisky in 50ml bottle and a range of locally distilled spirits, too. I didn't crack, though. Took nothing. It was a business trip for a major convention so I got all the booze I good get for free. Downstairs is a fantastic lounge...

My new fav in Adelaide, Central location ensures easy access to everything in the CBD. We stayed in a spa loft which I thought was great value for money. All`staff - from the front desk at check in to the guys doing some repairs on the room next door were incredibly polite, we were acknowledged every time we crossed paths...

Spent two days at the Playford while on business in Adelaide. The staff at the hotel were great. They gave us several ideas of what to do during our down time and setup a tour of the Adelaide Hills for us. All recommendations were spot on. The hotel is located close to the river and near food/entertainment. The rooms are...
