Thought I would break away from the dates Stamford in Glenelg and try this one. Not really my style and for me also dated. May cater for the 60 plus age group as this is the feel and styling. Super quiet, but then Adelaide is a quiet city during the week. Huge charge for internet use ( Aussie is mad...

Checked in here for a night. It's has an over the top decor which somehow works. Plush with heavy upholstery and drapes and lots of gold and large statues. Interesting furniture. Checked in by a guy called Tim who delivered excellent customer service and made us feel welcome immediately, very nice guy and best customer service I've experienced in a...

Nice looking lobby bar but average overall. The write up makes it sound glamorous which is potentially what causes disappointment on arrival. But the standard rooms are low cost, so you get what you pay for. Maybe the higher cost rooms are nicer. Peppers Waymouth was better.

Being one of the special Accor hotels, I must admit I probably expected more. The hotel was very good, the service was excellent and the food/catering was really good but the bed was nothing special and the rooms whilst not huge, were clean. The location of the hotel is excellent in the North of Adelaide but unfortunately for me, not...

We stayed three nights at this hotel. While the staff was very helpful and courteous, the place is old and has that tired look. No views out bedroom windows; cannot take drinks from bar to room (no alcohol on elevators); service in bar is fairly slow and inattentive; and it is expensive for all that. Would not stay there again.

I stayed at the Playford for a couple of nights in mid October. It is in the center of Adelaide, and walking distance to a lot of restaurants, shopping, museums. I was given a room on the seventh floor, which was a loft room. Downstairs was the bathroom, sitting area with TV, and minibar/kitchen. Up a flight of stairs was...

Stayed for one night on midweek business trip. The hotel is well located, close to the hospital, Rundle mall shopping area, University etc. Rooms themselves are of variable quality, I upgraded on arrival due to not being pleased with the somewhat shabby quality of the standard room. Room furnishing is uninspiring, but bathroom facilities were fine. Communal areas are nice...
