Five comfortable nights at the Playford were made memorable by the friendly, attentive and engaging staff - the difference that made all the difference! Had a room at the back, overlooking a little courtyard, the lack of view more than compensated for by the absence of road noise - I love sleeping with lots of fresh air, and was able... More

Thank you to everyone at the hotel who take the time to greet and chat and take care of additional requirements for those who need them - the breakfast is one of the best. There are times in our busy lives when real linen napkins do count and don't we all enjoy being taken care of even for just a... More

I booked The Playford for the night of my wedding and could not have picked a better place in Adelaide. I checked-in prior to the ceremony, which was handled kindly and efficiently at the front desk. My car was valet parked and I was on my way to get married. Returning with my wife after the reception I think she... More

The Playford Adelaide this brought up images of refinement of yesteryear in my imagination. Reception concierge was impeccable , outstanding views of casino ,Intercontinental Motel and other period buildings. The confusing part comes when you pay, are you getting value for money for a leader in the field? It is pricey but for special occasions if you lived in Adelaide... More

We booked only days before our stay, when only King rooms were still available, but for a one night stay this was adequate. On arrival someone dashed out to open the door of the cab, and before I'd finished paying, our luggage had been whisked into the lobby. Check in was quick and easy and we were welcomed back to...

My husband and I stayed overnight at The Playford a few weeks ago as we were attending The Dunstan Playhouse in The Festival Theatre to see the talented Miriem Margoyles. The service was excellent, both at reception and for breakfast. I was very glad to see healthy alternatives, such as cranberries, chia seeds mixed with yogurt and fresh fruit which... More

We loved staying at the Playford. All the staff were friendly - especially Reece who checked us in on the first day. The room was perfect - clean, spacious and well lit. Would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Adelaide. The restaurant was also a great experience - the food was amazing and the service was lovely.

We checked into the stylish Playford for our 6 night stay and were delighted to be upgraded to a suite. This was very roomy and made our stay even more enjoyable. There were several excellent features of the hotel that were appreciated. A nice bathroom with a lovely spacious shower was very welcome. I was also really really impressed at... More
