“Favourite Hotel in Adelaide”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

My boyfriend and I recently stayed at the Sebel Playford for my Birthday in a Spa Suite Room. From the moment we booked our stay 1 week earlier to the day we checked out the whole experiance was excellent. The staff were so friendly and helpful wherever they could be we got upgraded on check-in and a late check-out of 12 was not a problem. We had Dinner in the resturant downstairs and the food was amazing. My boyfriend had the steak and commented that it was the best steak he has ever had....Breakfast in the morning is a must do aswell- So many choices and everything beautifully presented. We have stayed in alot of hotels around Adelaide and by far the Sebel Playford is our favourite. Would definatly stay again for our next special event. "Excellent Location"

We stayed at the Playford, in a loft room - for four nights. The good things included the location, comfortable bed and friendly and helpful staff however a few things could be added to easily improve the experience. Such as:
1. More towels - of better quality
2. Rubbish Bin in kitchenette area
3. Additional kitchette items - eg. Bread knife, cutting board, dinner plates (although these did appear on day 3 of our stay)
4. Unlimited Wifi not 3 hours/day
5. Seat/lounge in loft area - in addition to the bed
6. Delay timing for room makeup- Room makeup staff knocked on our door at 8.15am to clean the room - too early
7. Strange mix of decor - flowers/stripes/metallic/timber - all in a limited space
8. New soap provided every second day

The room grew on us, but am not sureso would stay next time I visit Adelaide.

Did an overnight stay at Sebel Playford. The rooms were quite large and the bed amazingly comfy. The location is on North terrace and a short walk to the shopping area and across the road from the train station. The staff were all very friendly and professional, they even helped me check in our flights and print our boarding tickets for us. We had drinks in the bar which were well priced and the cocktails lush. We ate at night in the hotel restaurant and was one of the best meals we have ever eaten. Reminded me of Masterchef food with lots of little "elements" all over the place, but boy was it delicious, plentiful and cheap enough to have what you wanted on the menu instead of what was affordable. if ever in Adelaide again, would certainly stay there with no hesitation.

I am 56 and had a meal in the a la carte restaurant - it would go down as the best meal I have ever had in my life. Thank you Sebel. Service was excellent as well. I was there on 3/10/12 for breakfast, lunch and dinner!!!!

Room Tip: Restaurant is outstanding

We stayed for 4 nights over a long weekend. This hotel has a great ambience and the staff in particular are outstanding however, because we were allocated a room on the fist floor overlooking the laneway we experienced quite a bit of noise (nothing to do with the hotel). As the hotel is now an Accor property perhaps they should consider double glazing the glass on the lower levels to alleviate this problem.

The Sebel offers a great alternative to overpriced hotel breakfasts at the Bar where you can get a light meal at a very reasonable cost. The vouchers for juice or coffee were a lovely thought. We dined in the restaurant twice during our stay (Adelaide has a distinct lack of good restaurants in the city) and service and food on both occasions were exceptional.

Great place to stay - would highly recommend!

Room Tip: Lower level rooms on the laneway are noisy. Also request a room that is not near the function area.

Excellent location and a very professional front desk staff - they are very helpful.
The rooms are not the best I have ever had - my room faced a another building on the rear side and the wall was only some 2 metres away so my room was quite dark and inhibiting.
Having said that, I only bought one of the value internet deals so I can't expect any more.
The parking and breakfasts are expensive but the bar is excellent value for either lunch or breakfast.

Room Tip: avoid the back rooms

I've stayed here 5+ times now for business over the past 2-3 years. Clean hotel, nice bar at the entry, professional staff, food from room service always excellent (usually poor in other hotels). Great hotel for business stays however may consider elsewhere for personal trips due to prices.
