“Simply Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

Had a wonderful 5 night stay in one of the loft apartments and it was the best stay I've ever had in a hotel.
The room itself was spacious with nice new fixtures and and furniture, unlike most hotel rooms this one offers the best chance of a good nights rest due to the fact that the room is completely dark once you turn the lights out.
The staff were very courteous and all addressed us by name which was a nice touch.
Breakfast was a wonderful experience with a wide range of options available.

All in all The Playford is a highly recommended place to stay for a night or for a week

Room Tip: The lofts are the way to go if you're after a good nights rest

Have just stayed at The Playford for the weekend. Location is great on North Terrace, close to an Avis depot, train, restaurants, museum, gardens etc. The room was high standard, clean with comfy bed, coffee machine, organic products in the bathroom. Staff were extremely helpful at all times and are to be commended. Over the weekend we went to Rigoni's Bistro for dinner - very good - a drink at Casablabla, tapas and wine at Uduberri, breakfast one morning at East Terrace Continental and a leisurely lunch at Jolleys Boathouse. These were all good and within walking distance of the hotel. We also did a wine tour with "The Taste of the Barossa" who had a pick up and drop off from the hotel and I would recommend. Overall, a very pleasant weekend.

From checking in where we were greeted by friendly staff who were only too happy to help us with our luggage after a long trip right through to checking out, I can honestly say that my recent stay at the playford was easily the best I have ever had at any hotel.

Firstly they allowed us to check into our room early and gave us two vouchers for coffee in their down stairs bar and cafe. (Which was awesome).

Across our 4 night stay I could not speak highly enough of the warmth, friendliness and welcoming feel that the staff so naturally shared.

We ordered late night room service, (perhaps a little more than we should) and were just blown away by the quality of the food.

The room was clean, comfortable, peaceful and of course very conveniently located near everything the CBS has to offer.

I absolutely loved my stay at the playford and would recommend staying there to anybody in a heart beat!!

Thank you to the staff and management for helping create my most enjoyable hotel stay ever!

You can't fault the location, service or facilities of this hotel. It has a clean and inviting foyer, bar and restaurant. We checked out China town , the art centre and the football all in easy walking distance.

Room Tip: Room temperature set and unchangable

Celebrated my daughter's birthday last night and had dinner at the Playford. Fabulous. We both ordered steak and it was cooked to perfection.The desserts were rich and yummy. 5 star dining. Best food I've had in a long while. Highly recommend eating here when in Adelaide.
