This hotel is rated number one in Adelaide, justifiably so. The room was comfortable, with good amenities, and wonderful service. The hotel itself is an older hotelbut has been kept up well. The lobby and restaurant have an Art Deco look that borders on opulent. The staff were very welcoming and did everything they could to make our trip wonderful.... More

All the important things - just perfect. The rooms: most comfortable hotel bed in a long while, plenty of hanging space, roomy and comfy BUT only instant coffee in the minibar and we had a view of a carpark. The Lounge bar: the decor, comfort, cocktails and free wifi. The restaurant: fantastic food and service (especially our waiter Thomas), The... More

Stayed here for three nights. The staff were nice and helpful. In a great spot opposite the train station and tram stop to Glenelg. Walking distance to Torrens River and Rundle Mall, restaurants etc. Nice spacious rooms with all the facilities.

I stayed here for a week in June 2015. The room was nicely furnished and roomy. The chest of drawers was very handy. All staff were friendly, very helpful and efficient. The hotel has a very comfortable, elegant and family feel about it. The decor is art nouveau and so the bar, lounge and restaurant areas are very attractive and... More

The Playford is ideally positioned for an Adelaide tourist, as it's close to art galleries, the Botanic Gardens, theatres, great restaurants and city shops. Breakfast here has to be one of the best, if not the best, in Adelaide. Try the macadamia crunch cereal topping - luscious. The lounge at the front of the hotel is comfortable, with friendly, efficient... More

My daughter and I had an amazing 5 night stay. Our room on the 3 rd floor was very quiet, comfortable and had a view over the courtyard garden. All the staff were happy and helpful especially Jacob in the restaurant and Andrew who greeted us at the door. All in all a very pleasant experience. The food at the... More

The staff were friendly without exception. Food and service were superb. I highly recommend the breakfast buffet. Gym and pool were excellent. I really do... More

My husband and I stayed at this Hotel for six nights last week for a winter break and to catch up with family. We were very happy with our accommodation on the sixth floor in a Deluxe King Bed Room. Only comment would be the shower is over the bath so you need to be careful entering and exiting the... More

Recently stayed at The Playford Hotel during Adelaide Cabaret Festival. Excellent location for access to transport and Adelaide Festival and Conference centres, easy 5 minute walk. The hotel staff are very helpful, the bar and restaurant facilities are excellent. My room was quiet, very comfortable and large but dark with no natural light on the 4th floor so I would... More
