Located in the heart of Adelaide with access to George street and the many eateries around. There’s a multi storey parking lot opposite the quest that you can get subsidized or free parking from (validated ticket). The room was clean, had all the amenities, the fridge was well stocked and it was modern. The only issue that I had was... More

Always wonderful experience. The front desk staff, the bell service people, are the best ever! Room with 2 queen beds was great, beds are comfortable. Forgot to mention the location-5 stars. Thank you very much for the wonderful stay. Ramires Family from Maui.

I had only booked one nights stay as we were in transit but next Adelaide visit I'll be back. Excellent staff Comfortable rooms Only criticism is that the shower is in the bath & I find this outdated and not ideal. Good bed and the lounge bar does great coffee

What a lovely hotel. From the moment we walked through the door every staff member acknowledged us and were so friendly and helpful. All the staff were so happy - clearly it's a nice place to work. Our room was very nice and the breakfast buffet was plentiful and had a great variety of dishes. We also had a quick... More

The Playford-MGallery by Sofitel is within walking distance of the Adelaide Convention Centre, Adelaide Oval and main shopping mall in the CBD. Both the studio rooms and the standard rooms are comfortable, although the latter have a shower over a bath. The studio rooms have an ample size bathroom and a spa bath. Comfortable furniture and beds are found in... More

We stayed three nights in a small suite. The location was excellent with self-parking in a nearby building for a daily fee. The staff were always helpful and pleasant. We liked the coffee and breakfast available in the coffee shop. Beautifully decorated in art deco style all the fittings were in good condition and comfortable in our room - worth... More

This hotel is the best in the area by far. Everything here is marvellous. Interstate footy teams stay here if you are coming over for the game and want to say hi to the players. Excellent for families and the breakfast buffet is top notch!

After booking online with Expedia for my wife's 40th birthday weekend getaway, we chose the Loft Suite with a view based on the room description provided by Expedia as it stated it included a kitchen and I love to cook my wife's favorite curry every saturday night. With her birthday falling on a Sunday I thought we could combine a... More

I'm a frequent traveller to Adelaide and other major Australian cities for work. The Playford still rules the roost for service, charm, food and location. This is a reluctant excellent review for selfish reasons... I don't want to miss out on a room because it's too busy! The rooms are stylish and comfortable, the front desk welcoming (which means a...

It had been 4 years since I've been back to this hotel which had once been one of my favourites in Adelaide. To my surprise, I found that the hotel had recently been updated and had changed name and management... And it has become a better version of what it once was. It now has fresh rooms with updated features,... More
