Beautiful hotel. The front desk employees were very friendly and helpful. The room was large and spacious. Beds were extremely comfortable and they offered a number of pillow options that you can choose. We have never had this offered in other hotels that we have stayed at and it was a very nice touch. The bathroom had a drying rack for towels and the shower had extremely good pressure. They had a nice pool and hot tub with a good exercise room. The hotel is located in walking distance to the Rundle Mall, Adelaide Arcade, Oval Cricket Grounds and the free city tram. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

The Playford Hotel in Adelaide has the look of a classic hotel with some art nouveau features to give it a boutique hotel feel. Whilst its rated as 5 star I would have said its closer to 4 star in some areas. The receptionist assisted us with our cases from our taxi as there didn't seem to be any door people on duty. The room was nice enough, the view was the back of the hotel though so we kept the curtains closed. We had a king size bed with a large LCD tv opposite with a wide selection of channels. There was also a large sofa, desk and chairs too. The bathroom was well lit and well appointed along with bathrobes and plenty of towels. Tea and coffee makings were present. Breakfast was OK with a reasonable selection of food choices although the staff didn't seem to be very attentive. The hotel is fairly well located on North Terrace, not far from the railway station. Its also handy for Hertz and Avis car rental locations. There's a 24/7 convenience store 5 minutes walk away if you need any extras. Rather oddly the main entrance is in a side entrance although there is a pedestrian entrance on North Terrace.

Struggled a bit to get to the hotel entrance which was down a side street. Good reception and concierge team. Hotel felt very comfortable. Room typical for city centre a little small but perfectly formed. Some street noise during the night. Brilliant location for an on foot exploration of central Adelaide

Central hotel on North Terrace and close To tram routes. We had a duplex room. Lots of space and nice to have the bedroom upstairs. The room was clean and well kept but a little dated. Room was very quiet. We had breakfast one morning and it was very good. Great service. Good food selection and all the food was hot and well looked after. Nice little touches such as the homemade baked beans. Lovely barista coffee! Great pool facilities which are open around the clock. Good to have a coin laundry room too. My only criticism would be the decor of the hotel. It is very dated and not really what we expected from the website. The hotel brand also claims to be inspired by women however it has a very masculine fragrance of arrival (like a cologne) and the bathroom toiletries are also very masculine. Suited me but just an observation.

Stayed in a guest king room a few days ago for 1 night. Room ok.. walk in shower. Just checked in to a “deluxe” guest room as staying for 3 nights.. not worth the extra money paid. Same room - higher floor - no walk in show .. bath with shower over & slightly better furnishings. Total waste of money..

Response from The_Playford, General Manager at The Playford - MGallery by Sofitel
Responded Mar 8, 2020
Dear JANETC709, First off all thank you for staying twice at the Playford Hotel MGallery by Sofitel and we were happy to hear you enjoyed both your stays but not the price difference. There is only a small difference in price between the room-types but with a few extras as a bathtub, extra premium coffee & extra space. The difference in price might have had come from the period you booked not the upgrade. We feel sorry for the way you felt as it is never our intention to upset anyone. I do hope that your stay was as good as the first one when the reception had the opportunity to explain what have had happened. Again JANETC709, we appreciate your feedback and please enjoy the rest of your trip around Australia. Kind regards Maurits
