Our stay at the Playford was perfect. This was some of the best hotel service we've ever had. The room was very comfortable, especially the bed. The staff were very friendly and eager to help with anything. We even left some things behind accidentally, and they were so very helpful in promptly locating them and shipping them on to us....

I booked a night at the Playford for my Partner and I, before a getaway the next day. The hotel has some real charm, everything is tastefully presented and the Staff were warm and welcoming. When I somewhat absent mindedly forgot my access card, the desk attendant happily programmed a new one with a smile. The room (610) had everything... More

For a moderately expensive business focused hotel a huge flaw has to be the lack of free wi fi. Charging $24 a day or $12 for 2 hours might as well be added to the room charge. Unacceptable for such a well rated and otherwise perfectly pleasant hotel (with the added bonus of a lovely pool) to not offer a... More

Very nice hotel with an old Victorian feel for charm. The rooms were spacious and nice, and when considering the cost of a room it is exceptional value for money. All the staff were really nice, and the service was excellent. I was staying with someone who was returning to Adelaide so cannot attest the surroundings as I had a... More

This is a lovely hotel but I did expect more. It is rated a 5* property but I think it could do with a little refurbishment. The rooms themselves are great, but just starting to date a little bit, the reception area definitely needs some love, its a little underwhelming when you arrive. In saying that, the service is excellent.... More

The central location is handy, the interiors are classy, but the reason I enjoyed the Playford so much was the people. Whoever is doing the recruiting and people management is doing a geat job. Or maybe just everyone in Adelaide is warm and friendly and helpful? Everyone I had dealings with was responsive, helpful, and efficient. And don't let me... More

Fantastic for a wonderful weekend away. Congratulations to all staff on their professional and friendly service provided. The venue is great. Breakfast was magnificent and the coffee divine. We will be back.

We had a lovely stay in Adelaide. The Playford is a quaint hotel. The rooms were excellent. The beds comfortable and we both slept very well (bedding is very important to us!). We didn't spend too much time in the room due to activities, but overall we were happy. The staff were very helpful. We would definitely return!
