From the minute you enter The Playford you sense it's a professionally run establishment but without the awful Corporate veneer of insincerity of some larger chains. We had a fantastic Spa Suite which made our short stay in Adelaide more tolerable. The Breakfast's are amazing; well cooked with imagination. The Service is excellent without being obsequious or patronising. Nothing (it...

A beautiful hotel where you really get what you pay for. The staff is very friendly, the rooms are comfortable and the breakfast is fantastic. Clean and big bathroom. The view out of the window was not so good, because you look against a Wall. But who cares if the rest is just Great :) Thank you!!

The staff here are great. Friendly, helpful and mostly efficient. I say mostly because our room had no tissues or robes and the odd plastic bag left by a previous visitor I suppose. What was once one of the most stylish hotels in Adelaide is now dated left behind by the Mayfair and such

We've stayed at the Playford four times now, and have really enjoyed it. The staff are FANTASTIC: friendly, sincere and calmly capable. It's a quietly plush hotel with the most beautiful built in furniture. We have stayed in a variety of rooms which have all been comfortable, well maintained and meticulously clean. I prefer to pay for the valet parking...

I have just spent a lovely couple of nights at The Playford. It was extremely hot outside, but our room was cool and very comfortable, close to Rundle Mall and the casino. We were on the second floor, and were surprised at how peaceful and quiet it was. Onsite parking made it a no brainer for us, and all staff...

This was our second stay at the Playford in Adelaide. We came back here directly as a result of our first stay. They well deserve the awards that have received. Everything at the Playford is beautifully presented, from the lobby, to the room and restaurant. The staff are super helpful and always happy. There is the option of 24hr self...

The hotel staff are friendly. The hotel and rooms are in decent condition, the bathrooms could do with an upgrade. The restaurant and bar area is very outdated. Rooms are quiet and the bed is comfortable. The amenities are inline with 5 star hotels. Would stay there again if I travel to Adelaide.
