Highly efficient and professional staff, approachable and friendly also. The hotel has great decor and furnishings providing for a terrific ambiance. The food is excellent with the buffet breakfast a real highlight.

We had a last minute change of plans with this trip, and decided to pay a bit extra and still stay at the Playford, and be upgraded to a loft suite. The staff were so friendly, and remembered that I had stayed there before. Always helpful, can't fault them at all. The room was amazing, a little bit of luxury... More

It says a lot when every staff member that you encounter, epitomises exemplary Customer Service. There was an air of genuine warmth that greeted us as soon as our car pulled up at the entrance, and even though it was a "packed house" due to the local football showdown, you would never have guessed. The room was excellent, a lovely... More

After consulting Tripadvisor! we chose The Playford. A great location on North Terrace close to the railway station, tram, galleries, museums and car hire offices. The staff were really friendly and fun. Efficient without being austere. The rooms were beautifully clean, the bathroom spacious and, with a large fridge and a safe, we felt that everything was in place for... More

This is a good hotel for business with excellent service and in a great location. The spa suite was spacious and clean with a balcony looking out across North Terrace. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom and bath large. I would have liked a rug or two on the floor. I had the buffet breakfast and there were plenty... More

My first stay at The Playford was for 2 nights for work and I couldn't be happier. Easy check in, beautiful lobby with restaurant and bar. My room was huge, very comfortable, clean and quiet. I really liked that there was a sofa and table with enough room for me to relax. In the morning, I opted for the quick... More

This was our anniversary trip and booked a long time in advance by our travel agent. Despite requests by our travel agent and my husband, we were allocated a fairly ordinary room with a view of a wall from our window. Considering the cost of the room and we chose this hotel over a close competitor, we were not overly... More

Should have only rated 4.5 stars as is undergoing some updates, but, having said that, I found staff very accommodating & friendly, restaurant is 1st class and surrounding bar areas and booths have a very pleasant atmosphere. Enjoyed my stay very much

I surprised my fiance with a room for his 40th birthday. It was lovely. Our room was spacious, very modern and clean. The team were friendly and it is close to restaurants and bars. I also got the buffet breakfast for us. It was pricey but it was great, lots of vegetarian options and good variety. We were so full.

Just the best hotel to stay at during your visit to Adelaide - all areas of the hotel could not be faulted. My loft room was just delightful plus the staff cant do enough for you in making it a fantastic experience. I'll be back :)
